NEW YORK (AP) - Court papers show globe-trotting chef, author and TV host Anthony Bourdain was worth $1.2 million when he died last month. Most of his estate has been left to his 11-year-old daughter.

Bourdain's will was filed this week in a New York court. It shows assets including $425,000 in cash and savings, $250,000 in personal property and $500,000 in intangibles like royalties and residuals.

The 61-year-old Bourdain was found dead June 8 in an apparent suicide in his French hotel room while working on his CNN series "Parts Unknown."

Bourdain wrote his will in December 2016 and named his wife, Ottavia Busia-Bourdain, as executor.

He instructed Busia to dispose of his "accumulated frequent flier miles" and other possessions like cars, furnishings and jewelry in a way she believes he would've wanted.
