Nearly four months after Paul Walker's tragic death, his fifteen-year-old daughter Meadow is still a little girl lost. Meanwhile, her grandmother Cheryl Ann Walker has alleged in court papers that Meadow's mother Rebecca Soteros has a "drinking problem" and went to court on Monday, March 18, to ask a judge to make her the teen's guardian -- a move, has learned, that will also put her in control of a trust worth more than $16 million

According to court documents obtained by, Cheryl told the court that Meadow "needs a guardian in place so that the money she is entitled to," at least $16 million in a trust left by the Fast & Furious star, "can be disbursed to the guardian," namely Cheryl. The documents insist that the funds given to Cheryl will be used "for the benefit of" Meadow, but it's unclear exactly how that will be policed, or if the teen will take over control of the funds when she turns 18 in a few years.

In the meantime, Cheryl says, it's essential she be made guardian because Meadow's mother "has a drinking problem." She claims she is unsure whether Soteros will agree to the arrangement, although they are all currently living in the same house in La Canada, Calif.

Regardless of Soteros' opinion, it seems Meadow is on board with the plan. Cheryl claimed in the documents that the teen will appear in court for the April 30 hearing on the matter.

Meadow's young life was thrown into a tailspin last November when her dad Paul died in a fiery crash on November 30 in Santa Clarita, California. As previously reported, coroners confirmed that the red Porsche his friend Roger Rodas was driving was "traveling at an unsafe speed, approximately 100+ mph" and for "unknown reasons, the driver lost control of the vehicle." When the car hit a tree, it "burst into flames."
