"Black Panther" star Chadwick Boseman kept his battle with colon cancer a secret, but by his side was the woman he married months before he died, Taylor Simone Ledward. "He died in his home, with his wife and family by his side," said a tweet announcing his tragic death. Their romance first went public at the 2019 NAACP Image Awards. Ledward, 29, is a singer and graduate of California State Polytechnic University. The couple was last photographed together at the NBA All Star game in February.
