A copy of Bourdain's will was filed in a NY court Thursday and the celebrity chef/TV host left behind about $1.2 million in known assets at the time of his death.

Both the New York Daily News and the New York Post cited documents from the Manhattan Surrogate's Court filed Thursday.

Out of the million dollars in assets, USD 425,000 is cash, USD 250,000 worth in personal property, USD 35000 in brokerage accounts and around USD 500,000 in intangible property including royalties and residuals.

Despite assumptions that Bourdain was worth about $16 million, his fortune amounted to only $1.21 million when Bourdain hanged himself in a hotel bathroom in Kraysersberg, France, on June 8. He also gave her his "personal and household effects", to "dispose of in accordance with what [she] believes to have been my wishes".

This bulk of this goes to 11-year-old Ariane Busia-Bourdain.

The court will appoint a guardian ad litem to represent their daughter Ariane's interests, because she's a minor.

Ariane, his only child, will inherit the remainder of his assets. In the event that Bourdain survived his daughter, the will also states that the inheritance would have gone to her nanny, Myra Quizon, CBS reported.

Anthony's passing came as a huge shock to fans but Christian de Rocquigny de Fayel - the local prosecutor in charge of the investigation - recently confirmed that he didn't have any narcotics in his body at the time of his death.
