Robin Williams

Money Complaints

Typical 'Divorce Jokes'

Robin Williams did not have money trouble and money had no connection to his depression ... although he DID complain about being taken to the cleaners "the way most divorced husbands do" ... so says a person who frequently discussed finances with the actor.

The source -- who was in regular contact with Robin -- tells us he was not cash strapped and lived "the way he wanted to," adding, "He always flew first class, took great vacations and lived in the house he loved." 

As for why he was selling his Napa ranch, we're told he just didn't like going there anymore. The source says the ranch was "a thing" for Robin and his second wife, Marsha, and he just didn't enjoy going there any longer. 

The source says Robin did complain over the years about "getting taken to the cleaners by his ex-wives."

Multiple sources tell us ... money had nothing to do with the depression that ultimately led to Robin's suicide.

Is it time for Robin's Law? His two divorces cost him $30M+ and quite possibly his life as part of his depression.

Maybe it is time to put a Dollar Limit on Gold Diggers...

Quit speculating. There is only one reason Robin Williams took his own life and that was because he was tormented by mental illness that blinded him to every single good thing in his life. RIP.

Lets be real here for a second, the world is a really depressing place, plain and simple. Don't see it that way? Turn on CNN.
Comedians make there jokes from current news,and they can make us laugh over it, but deep down the depression is what makes them who they are

I see where TMZ is going with this. Was it the fact his marriage was failing? So far they said "It wasn't Parkinson's and it wasn't money problems"

Yeah, I would like to have money troubles like him... where he was going to have to sell one of his $35 million properties since it was too expensive to maintain.

Williams was not depressive, he was mentally sick in a very very strange way . . .

Speculation is unproductive and can possibly cause problems, so why do it? Truth is none of us will ever know for sure just why Williams committed suicide. The only person who could have told us is gone now, and I hope he finds peace in the next life. It makes me wonder if there's anyone to go save him like his character did his wife in "What Dreams May Come".

Hang your head in shame all celebrity media who are tearing this poor man to shreds with a lot of information that isn't true. Let him rest in peace.

First time commenting, last time visiting this site. Been checking out stories here for 10years+. The handling of this story really p*sses me off. There is no celebrity gossip here that I can't get anywhere else. I hope others decide to stop coming here too. R Williams deserves way more respect
