Globe-trotting chef, author and TV host Anthony Bourdain was worth only $US1.2 million ($1.6 million) when he died last month, according to court papers filed this week in NY.

According to Bourdain's will, his only child, 11-year-old daughter Ariane, will be the inheritor of his properties.

Anthony's assets reportedly include $425,00 in "cash and savings", $250,000 in "personal property", $500,000 in "intangible property", including royalties and residuals and $35,000 in a brokerage account.

The court documents also reveal that Bourdain had a $1.1 million mortgage, but the exact property is not stated.

Ariane gets the bulk of his assets, and his estranged wife, Ottavia Busia-Bourdain, is the executor of the will.

According to TMZ, though, Bourdain's actual worth is likely much higher than the amount listed in his will.

Reports state that Bourdain bequeathed his accumulated frequent flyer miles to Busia, and asked her to "dispose of [them] in accordance with what [she] believes to have been my wishes".

Bourdain committed suicide last month at age 61.

Anthony's will was filed in Manhattan Surrogate's Court on July 5.

He left the same instructions for cars, furniture, books, clothing and other household items.

Anthony was dating Asia Argento at the time of this death, but the will was written in 2016 while he was still married.

The court will pick a guardian to "safeguard" Ariane's inheritance as she is a minor.

He was in France shooting an episode of his show "Parts Unknown" when he died, and the prosecutor previously said there was no evidence of foul play involved.
