Robin Williams

Turned Down HUGE Vegas Offer

0826_The-Colosseum_offer_launch

Robin Williams
turned down a huge Las Vegas offer 2 years before he died ... and sources connected with Robin tell us it's further proof he did NOT have money troubles.

TMZ has obtained an AEG Live document to Robin ... offering him $600,000 to headline 2 shows at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace.

We're told Robin's people turned the offer down ... he was shooting "The Crazy Ones" at the time. Robin's people -- who have maintained all along money was not a factor in his suicide -- tell TMZ if he was really cash-strapped he would have done some moonlighting in Vegas to rake in some dough.

Under the proposal ... ticket prices ranged from $75 - $150.

Even the tigers get paid more than that to perform in Vegas. Truth.

The only place I read he may have been having some financial problems was here. So this is how you get to generate more stories I suppose. Write one false post and then refute it with another.
Anyway, mental illness does not care about your economic status in life, although when you do have a comfortable home you can pay for, it makes everyday more stable.

Finnding this kind of hard to believe he would have turned this down, cash-strapped or not. Two nights and that is some easy money. Shoot he would randomly pop up places and do an improv for free. Might he have been under some sort of contract that he was not allowed to do such types of shows..? just wondering...seems like really easy money for 2 nights...

Why don't you attempt to clear everyone's name that you have maliciously slandered on this site.. instead of a select few. Your biased stories paint images of people that are damaging because of the pre-conceived notions.. stereotypical views.. and misconceptions circulating behind the scenes. It actually spills over into the comment section.. other sites/blogs.. mainstream media.. then all over the world. Stop rushing to judgment just for hits and get your facts straight.. or stop printing the bs only you and your staff can see through those ish stained glasses.

He had a net worth of $130 million. That seems to be the opposite of cash strapped.

Who cares? This man made so many memories through his undeniable talent for all of us. Let him rest in peace, and his family mourn.

Why can't a person choose to die? New flash, we're all going to die. You're going to die and I'm going to die. If you think you've lived past the peak of your life and everything going forward is downhill, kill yourself. Is it selfish? Ehh, maybe. But does it really matter if you're selfish? No, because like I already said, we're all going to die. Truth.

TMZ continues to milk every last drop out of this story by writing about every dumb non-newsworthy piece of info they can pay "sources" for.

Well, for a Vegas show, Williams would have needed new stand up material, what means : stealing a lot jokes from others on every occasion . . . too much work for joke thief Ol' Robin.
