Robin Williams’ Will: Actor Left $50 Million Estate To Children, Money For Third Wife
Robin Williams left the entirety of his $50 million estate to his three children, and set aside money for his surviving wife Susan Schneider under the terms of their prenuptial agreement.
Robin Williams’ Will
The Robin Williams Trust, outlined in Williams will, was made out in January 2011 and ensures the financial security of his children – Zachary, 31, Zelda, 25, and Cody, 22 – according to The Daily Mail, which obtained a copy of the document. Williams and Schneider had signed a prenuptial agreement in September 2011, one month before they tied the knot in Napa Valley.
It is uncertain whether or not Schneider will remain in the Tiburon, Calif., home she had shared with Williams, valued at more that $7 million. The will states, “’I intend by this will to dispose of all property wherever situated that I am entitled to dispose of by will,” which could mean that Schneider is entitled to the proceeds of the sale of the home. Williams also owned a home in the Napa Valley that is on the market for nearly $30 million.
Williams’ career saw him star in a number of beloved films, including Good Morning, Vietnam, Aladdin, Dead Poets Society, Hook, Mrs. Doubtfire and Good Will Hunting,
Leading up to his death, Williams, a recovering alcoholic, had been battling depression and Parkinson’s disease. He’d also recently been diagnosed with Lewy body dementia, which, in conjunction with Parkinson’s, can cause hallucinations.
Williams took his life on Aug. 11, 2014.
