Chadwick Boseman died after a battle with colon cancer on August 28. He was 43. The actor and Ledward had secretly married before his death. They started dating before Boseman was diagnosed with colon cancer four years ago, and reportedly got engaged last year.
In a statement announcing his death, Chadwick’s family confirmed that he had married Ledward.
“Chadwick Boseman was diagnosed with stage III colon cancer in 2016, and battled with it these last four years as it progresses to stage IV. A true fighter, Chadwick persevered through it all, and brought you many of the films you have come to love so much. From Marshall to Da 5 Bloods, August Wilson’s Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, and several more, all were filmed during and between countless surgeries and chemotherapy. He died in his home, with his wife and family by his side,” the statement had said.
