Robin Williams’ greedy “widow” – she doesn’t deserve that distinction – Susan Schneider is trying to make a grab for even MORE money from her late husband’s estate. She has filed legal documents saying she has not been receiving an adequate amount of money to pay the mortgage, insurance and maintenance on the home in Tilburon, California that she and Robin shared during their three year marriage. No dollar amount is specified in the latest round of court documents.
Poor Susan says she has not received ANY money from Robin’s estate since he passed away a year ago. Even though reports have repeatedly said that she and her late husband’s children have settled their dispute over the comedian’s estate, Zelda Williams says nothing could be further from the truth. She and her brothers have been in a heated struggle with Susan Schneider over Robin Williams’ estate and there is no proposed settlement.
But does Susan Schneider deserve even one penny from Robin Williams’ estate? Reportedly the couple were no longer sharing a bedroom. On the day Robin’s assistant found him dead, hanging by a belt in a bedroom of the couple’s home, Susan, who had been sleeping in another bedroom, started her day and left the house without even taking one minute to check in on her seriously depressed husband before she left the house. The husband who had recently been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease? A diagnosis and the medications he was taking for it, she claims had left him deeply depressed. Where Susan and Robin headed for divorce after only three years? How much does Zelda Williams know about the intimate and personal details of her father and stepmother’s marriage? She has used Instagram to air the family’s dirty laundry, but what isn’t she saying?
Robin’s show “The Crazy Ones” had been canceled and fans have never been quite certain why. At the time of the comedy’s cancellation CBS issued a statement that the show was too expensive to produce. But was Robin already experiencing tremors and other symptoms related to Parkinson’s, things he didn’t want his fans to see? Was he putting his affairs in order? He had put one of his homes up for sale, maintaining that he could no longer afford it. Was he contemplating ending his own life? Why didn’t Susan see the signs? Was she so wrapped up in being the legendary comedian’s wife that she was blinded to the fact he was suffering from severe depression? Or did she just not care?
Robin took his own life on August 11, 2014, attempting to slit his wrists and then hanging himself with a belt in one of the bedrooms of the couple’s home. A callous woman who made absolutely no effort to check on the husband she purportedly loved, who she knew was struggling with his Parkinson’s diagnosis and the ensuing depression, wants MORE money from his estate?
