The teen made headlines over the last few years due to her case against Porsche AG, claiming the car her father died in wasn’t equipped with proper safety features. It was reported that the two parties reached a resolution for an undisclosed amount on Oct. 16, 2017. Meadow also received approximately $10.1 million from the estate of Roger Rodas, who, as the driver of the sports car, was also killed in the accident.
Meadow mainly uses Instagram to post heartwarming tributes to her father.
On what would’ve been her dad’s 44th birthday, she shared a throwback photo of the actor and urged fans to spread the love. “In honor of my dad’s birthday today, we’re challenging you to DO GOOD!” she captioned the Instagram post. “Share a video or photo of your random act of kindness and nominate 4 people to join the challenge!

Last year, the brunette beauty posted a gorgeous photo of herself at the beach, telling fans, “Excited to honor my dad’s legacy at our @PaulWalkerFdn Ocean Leadership Award Presentation @MontereyBayAquarium this Saturday. We’ll be presenting a scholarship to Meg Kikkeri and acknowledging @AdrianGrenier’s work with his @LonelyWhale Foundation! #dogood.” Paul had a passion for marine biology, something he clearly passed on to his only child, who lived with her mother, Rebecca Soteros, for 13 years in Hawaii before relocating to be with her dad in California.
Meadow spoke out about Paul’s philanthropic legacy in an interview.
While presenting the 2015 Paul Walker Ocean Leadership Award and Youth Award, Meadow revealed, “My dad was in awe of the ocean and wanted to see it protected. It’s exciting to know scholarships and students…will ensure the future of our oceans. It’s an honor to be supporting them and the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s teen program.” According to her father’s Fast & Furious co-star Tyrese Gibson, “[Meadow’s] really in a great space. She’s really focused on her education and just spending a lot of quality time with her friends. That brings her a lot of joy.”
