Two years ago, on August 29, the world lost actor Chadwick Boseman. The native of Anderson, South Carolina, left a remarkable film legacy in his wake and had the opportunity to play some extraordinary figures, like Jackie Robinson, James Brown, and, of course,
the fictitious king T’Challa, a.k.a. The Black Panther. Many people were unaware that Boseman was married or ill at the time of his passing because of the relatively secretive life he maintained. In advance of the sequel to the film Black Panther, which was created in his honour,
his wife recently ended her silence on his loss. The late actor was wed to Simone Ledward Boseman at the time of his death. They first got together in 2015. Numerous websites list Simone as a vocalist. In October 2019, she and Boseman became engaged, and they later wed covertly.
Prior to his death, only their immediate family was aware of their marriage. Sadly, Boseman went away without leaving a will. Later, all financial affairs were to be handled by his wife Simone. Simone is requesting that the court divide the actor’s $2.3
million fortune equally between her and his parents after taking into consideration all residuals that were made after his death. She recently spoke out to Whoopi Goldberg in an exclusive interview with Good Morning America on how difficult life has been
without her husband and how she has handled the past few years. She says that while COVID-19 made everyone stay at home, it actually provided them a strange kind of serenity. Without having to be concerned about people attempting to find out what was wrong with him,
Chadwick was able to go through his bodily changes in peace. Following her husband’s death, Simone has remained behind the scenes, making only one public appearance to accept the Golden Globe for his work on Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom. The suffering of Simone is felt in
every community that Chadwick impacted. African Popstar Tems’ song, which Rihanna contributed, is featured in the movie. According to reports, the song “Lift Me Up” is a tribute to Chadwick and his accomplishments. Lift me up, keep me down, Rihanna sings in the song. Ensure my safety.
