OTRC: Paul Walker's mother seeks guardianship of actor's daughter Meadow, 15

Paul Walker talks to OTRC.com about 'Fast Five' in 2011.

Paul Walker's mother has filed a petition seeking guardianship of the late "Fast & Furious" star's 15-year-old daughter, Meadow, saying her mom and the actor's ex-girlfriend has a drinking problem.

The woman in question, Rebecca Jo Soteros, has not commented. The actor died at age 40 in a car crash on Nov. 30, 2013. He had declared in a will he signed in 2001 that he wants his mother, Cheryl Ann Walker, to be the guardian of Meadow and over an estate worth at least $16 million that he had left his daughter, his only child, according to documents filed at a Los Angeles court and obtained by OTRC.com on Thursday, March 20.

Meadow -- and Soteros -- are currently living at Cheryl's home, the petition states. Paul's mother states that she is a registered nurse and that it would be "detrimental" to grant custody to her daughter-in-law. She adds that it is unknown if Soteros agrees that she should become the teenager's guardian.

She has been arrested for alcohol-related issues before -- she pleaded guilty to a 2003 DUI in Orange County, California, while she has a pending 2013 drunk driving case in Hawaii and is due in court in May, court records show.

A hearing over temporary guardianship was set for March 27, while one over permanent guardianship is scheduled for April 30.
