Mrs Ford, who died last year at 98, owned two homes in New York’s Dakota Building and they now belong to Indra Tamang, who was raised in a mud house in rural Nepal.
He has spent the past three decades working as a loyal servant for the Ford family.
In her will, the actress, model and wife of film star Zachary Scott left her estate, which included the two flats and her valuable collection of Russian surrealist art, to Mr Tamang.
Mrs Ford barely spoke to her estranged daughter Shelley Scott and both she and the star’s two grandchildren were written out of her will.
