In 1998, Chadwick Boseman filed for bankruptcy and reported assets of $11,489. Since then, his assets have increased. According to court documents obtained by TMZ, Boseman, who grew up in Laurens, S.C., declared his assets as $5,483 in 1999. The court filing explained, “I am presently looking for and looking for work in the acting field, however, am having difficulty in any employment until further notice.” Boseman’s personal income dropped to $28,866 in 2000, which still seems a lot of money. Since then, he’s had a number of minor acting roles, but has made a name for himself as the star of 2016’s critically acclaimed Marvel blockbuster “Black Panther,” a superhero epic that broke records at the box office and is set to be the first Marvel movie to win a Golden Globe for Best Picture. For the role, he made $600,000, according to TMZ. As for his estate, since his bankruptcy filing, his assets have multiplied tenfold. In 2018, the court approved the sale of Boseman’s home, reported to be worth over $2 million, for $2 million. Boseman’s court-approved trustees made an additional $1 million commission, reported to be over $300,000. In 2019, his real estate continues to thrive. The court approved the sale of his Bel-Air mansion for $3.7 million, along with his home in Lake Bluff, and in 2019, he purchased a $2.95 million home in beach-side Malibu.
