Paul Walker Guardianship Battle Over Daughter Meadow Settled By Family Privately

Fast And Furious star died in a car crash last November

The guardianship dispute over the custody of Paul Walker's 15 year-old daughter Meadow has been privately settled between his mother Cheryl Walker and the teenagers mother's Rebecca Soteros, avoiding a court room battle.

Fast And Furious star Paul died last November in a car accident in Los Angeles age 40. In his will he named teenager Meadow as his main benefactor and requested mother Cheryl Ann to become her legal guardian until she is of age.

The teen has been living with her grandmother since Paul's tragic death as has her mother, who moved from Hawaii to Los Angeles to help her through the difficult time. Earlier this month Cheryl Ann filed a petition to become Meadow's legal guardian, citing Rebecca's alleged drinking problem as her reasoning.

"Parties involved are trying to resolve whatever the issues are so that this matter goes off calendar," Cheryl's lawyer, Bela G. Lugosi, told E! outside the courtroom yesterday.
