Paul Walker's fatal accident back in 2013 sent shockwaves through Hollywood, though there was probably no one more affected by his death than his daughter Meadow Walker.
Since the actor's passing, Meadow and the Walker family have been through quite a bit as both Paul's father and daughter filed lawsuits against Porsche over problems with the Porsche Carrera GT that the Fast and the Furious star was riding in with driver Roger Rodas.

In a complicated turn of events a judge decided to throw out Rodas' widow's wrongful death lawsuit earlier this week. However, Meadow has continued to fight on — and she just got a pretty big win.
Paul's little girl was just awarded $10.1 million as a settlement deal from Rodas' estate. Jeff Milam, the 17-year-old's lawyer, opened up to People about the ruling saying:
Michelle Rodriguez is NOT happy with filmmakers after her controversial clip from The Reality of Truth made headlines earlier this week.
ICYMI, a recently released teaser for the upcoming documentary showed the brunette beauty saying she felt jealous that Paul Walker died before she did.

On Thursday, the actress told a photographer in Beverly Hills that the flick's crew totally took advantage of what she said, saying:
"That's the people from the documentary using things that out of context."
The lovely lady apologized for those remarks about her late Fast & Furious costar, and admitted that she now regrets being a part of the film, adding:
Porsche may have scored a victory in the case of the crash that killed Paul Walker, but his daughter isn't giving up the fight just yet.
As we previously reported, a judge threw out the lawsuit filed by the family of the man driving during the deadly accident, Roger Rodas.

While this seems like it would be bad news for the Fast & Furious star's daughter, Meadow Walker — who is also suing the car company for the wrongful death of her famous father — the teenager's lawyer, Jeff Milam says it doesn't affect her complaint, writing in a statement:
"Today's ruling by a federal judge in favor of Porsche Cars North America against Rodas has no effect on Meadow Walker's lawsuit that is pending against Porsche AG, Porsche Cars North America, and Beverly Hills Porsche in Los Angeles Superior Court."
In fact, the 17-year-old's legal rep claimed that the differences in the details between Roger and Paul's deaths show that the manufacturer is to blame for the actor's tragic passing:
Porsche scores another victory.
According to legal documents, a judge has thrown out a wrongful death lawsuit filed by Roger Rodas' family. Roger was the driver involved in Paul Walker's fatal 2013 crash as well as a close friend.

Similarly to Paul's daughter Meadow Walker, Roger's loved ones felt that the famous car company was at fault for the tragedy. Essentially, the parties believe Porsche's designs are inherently risky and too unsafe to withstand accidents.
Unfortunately for Rodas' fam, a judge didn't agree with their claims.
While Roger's wife Kristine Rodas argued that the car was not built to withstand side impact, that its fuel cell was compromised, and that something failed in the car's suspension, a judge was not convinced. Mrs. Rodas also claimed the passenger compartment wasn't sturdy enough to withstand impact, an argument refuted by presenting evidence that Roger died when he was thrown into Paul, not the compartment.
The ruling heralds bad news for Meadow who remains convinced that Porsche is at fault for her father's death. At the present time, Ms. Walker is seeking damages for the tragedy while Porsche continues to maintain its innocence.

This might be one of the more alarming things Michelle Rodriguez has ever said.
A new clip from the brunette beauty's appearance in the controversial documentary The Reality of Truth was recently released, and in it the actress opens up about Paul Walker's death.

The gorgeous gal confessed she was having a tough time coping, saying:
"I have to say, you know, when I lost Paul, I went through about a year of just being like an animal. Like, what could I do physically to just get my mind off of existentialism, get my mind off how transient life is and how we just come here and we can disappear at any moment?"
The actress explained that one of the things she did to take her mind off the tragic loss of her Fast & Furious costar was to go under the influence of a psychedelic plant called Ayahuasca.
The 37-year-old said her experience with the drug actually made her realize she was jealous that the late actor died before she did, adding:
Get your tissues boxes ready.
On Thursday, Ludacris tugged at our heartstrings when he took to Instagram to share a sweet #TBT pic of himself and his late friend Paul Walker on the set of Fast & Furious 6. How sad!

In case you forgot, the Furious 7 actor tragically lost his costar after a fatal car accident back in 2013. He posted:
The Fast and the Furious movies have been so successful that we're of course getting an eighth installment.
While Vin Diesel recently took to Instagram to share the title and poster for the speedy sequel (above), what many fans have been wondering is if Paul Walker's brothers, Cody Walker and/or Caleb Walker, might return in the sequel.
If you remember, Cody and Caleb were both stand-ins for Furious 7 so the film could digitally recreate the late actor and finish the story.

While several fans loved the ending of the seventh film, moviegoers have been speculating lately that Paul's brothers could return to give their late brother's character some more screen time — or even as brand new characters.
Well, Polygon reached out to Universal Pictures and got word on the brothers' involvement as a rep for the studio said:
