Meadow Walker, the daughter of the late actor Paul Walker, has done her best to remain out of the limelight following her film star dad's sudden passing last November. Despite her best efforts to remain a regular teen, Meadow, Walker’s sole remaining offspring, recently decided to make her private life a little more public.
“To combat the imposter profiles that are continually created, we have launched three official profiles for Paul Walker’s daughter…” a rep announced on Walker’s Facebook page announced Sunday, sharing links to Meadow’s three official pages on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. “Any other profiles you may find on social networks are not associated with Meadow or Paul,” reads the statement.
Since the announcement, Walker’s daughter has received an outpouring of love from the “Fast & Furious” actor’s fans as well as growing number of followers. As of Tuesday morning, Meadow had over 145,000 “likes” on Facebook, 15,700 followers on Twitter, and 35,000 followers on Instagram.

While the Meadow, 15, has yet to make a personal comment on either of the three accounts, two images she has shared throughout the sites, one of her as a young girl, and another of her as a teen looking at her father, has resulted in an outpouring of encouraging words from Walker's admirers.
“It’s a beautiful picture. You can see the love he has for you just by the way he looks at you. He’s your guardian angel now ((hugs)) He was loved by many,” one Facebook fan said. “Your dad was the greatest of his generation Meadow… you were lucky to have him but not as lucky as he was to have you,” said another follower. “Meadow, just know this… You were your father’s greatest accomplishment, passion, pride, joy and love,” shared one fan.
Meadow last made headlines after Paul Walker’s mother, Cheryl Walker, dropped her bid to gain custody of the teen. Originally Cheryl claimed that the child’s biological mother and Walker’s ex-girlfriend, Rebecca Soteros, was not a fit parent due to an alleged “drinking problem.” Last week, Cheryl dropped her bid for guardianship for unknown reasons. According to a report from CNN, the duo is due back in court to discuss Meadow’s custody, and her estimated $16 million inheritance, on April 30.
Walker passed away on November 30 at the age of 40 following a fiery car crash in Santa Clarita, Calif. The actor died alongside his longtime friend, Roger Rodas, 38, who was driving a 2005 Porsche Carrera GT at the time of the crash. According to recent reports, the accident occured due to Rodas driving 90 MPH in a 45 MPH zone, causing the vehicle to reportedly lose control and crash into a light pole before catching fire.
In recent days, Walker’s brothers, Caleb and Cody Walker, have stepped forward to help Universal Pictures finish Walker’s lastest project, “Fast & Furious 7.” According to a statement from the film’s Facebook page, the two brothers will film remaining action sequences. The film is currently scheduled for an April 2015 U.S. release.
