Los Angeles: Paul Walker`s mother has requested a dismissal of her petition for guardianship of the late actor`s 15-year-old daughter, Meadow Rain.

Cheryl Ann Walker, 60, had sought to be named guardian over her son`s estate and his daughter but has abandoned that bid, reportedly.

Cheryl filed for guardianship of 15-year-old Meadow in March, claiming that Meadow`s mother, Rebecca Soteros, has a "drinking problem".

Attorney Steven Bledsoe said that Cheryl has filed papers that requested her guardianship petition to be dismissed.

The document says Cheryl has told a investigator for the court why she wanted to drop the case but would further explain at a scheduled court date April 30, if necessary.

Meadow stands to inherit an estimated USD 16 million from her father`s estate.

Walker died in a fiery car crash in Los Angeles during a break in filming `Fast & Furious 7` in November.
