Paul Walker‘s mother just filed court documents asking for guardianship of Paul’s 15-year-old daughter … because the real mom has a serious drinking problem.
Cheryl Walker claims in her docs — obtained by TMZ — Meadow and her mom, Rebecca Soteros, are already living with her but Rebecca can’t care for her daughter because of her alcoholism.
As we previously reported … Rebecca has 2 DUIs — one in 2003 and another last year. We’re told Meadow moved from Hawaii — where Rebecca lived — to live with Paul 3 years before he died because of her mom’s problems with alcohol.
Cheryl says she’s more than qualified — she’s raised 4 kids, she’s a registered nurse and is a loving person.
Paul had said in his will he wanted his mom to be Meadow’s guardian … so this is clearly in line with what he wanted.
One other note … the legal docs say Paul’s estate is worth $16 MILLION … a lot less than previously filed legal docs estimating his worth at around $25 mil.
