Although Bourdain and Busia separated in 2016, their divorce was not finalized before his death. Since their divorce was not finalized, Busia is still legally his next of kin. (Bourdain and girlfriend Asia Argento began dating after meeting during the filming of his CNN show Parts Unknown in 2016.)

Bourdain reportedly gave 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,” according to the outlets. The same instructions were stated for his cars, furniture, books, clothing and household items.

The New York City condo, which Bourdain and Busia bought in 2014, is not listed in the will, according to Page Six, but the filings indicate a $1 million mortgage liability for an unspecified property. “I own an apartment with a mortgage that my ex-wife and my daughter live in, and I’m a renter. I should always be a renter,” Bourdain told PEOPLE in February. “I regret buying that apartment. The bank owns it, and then you’re stuck with it.”

Fourteen days after his death, a completed toxicology report revealed that Bourdain had no narcotics in his system at the time of his death, a French judicial official told the New York Times, which reported that there was only a “trace of a nonnarcotic medicine in a therapeutic dose” in his system.

Speaking with PEOPLE about what he liked to splurge on, Bourdain recalled, “Chef’s knife. A really expensive chef’s knife, hand-made.”

Days before his death, Bourdain purchased a painting by artist John Lurietitled, “The sky is falling, I am learning to live with it.”
