According to court documents obtained by Radar Online, Ledward's request was initially shut down, but she is back in court asking for $71,000 from the actor's estate.

In April, Ledward filed asking for $71,613.74 to be reimbursed. This included $7,495 for a mausoleum crypt at McDougald Funeral Home in South Carolina, $9,500 for the venue and $8,500 for the funeral services, which totaled $2,631 for beverages and $1,275 for flowers.

Radar noted that the 30-year-old's claim was rejected by the court as the request "must be supported by evidence of payment by the claimant." The court order explained that "support for claim is unclear based upon the partial payments, transferred account, and documents provided."

Due to the complexity of the claim and the amount of money involved, the court is asking that more documentation be provided to prove that it was paid.

According to new documents obtained by the outlet, Ledward handed over receipts, check stubs and financial documents to detail how the money was spent. She also obtained declarations from close friends of the Black Panther star who were reimbursed by Ledward for expenses they are said to have covered.

A hearing is reportedly slated for November where the judge is expected to make a final decision on the matter.

Boseman passed away in August 2020 at the age of 43 after a lengthy battle with colon cancer. While the couple tied the knot a few months before he passed away, he reportedly did not draft a will. The pair was first linked in 2015.

A few months after his death, his wife was appointed the executor of his estate, leaving her responsible for managing creditor’s claims and handling finances.

The 21 Bridges star's parents, Leroy and Carolyn, reportedly filed documents recently requesting that they be notified of all matters in their son's estate.
