Robin Williams

Turned Down HUGE Vegas Offer

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.

Sadly there is only one reason he killed himself--he relapsed on alcohol in 2003 after 20 good years of sobriety, and could not take any more after 11 years of alcoholic drinking hell on earth. Look at the last couple of pictures of the poor man. That wasted away body and pain-filled face were not caused by "depression," "a Parkinson's diagnosis," or the ridiculous assertion of "money woes." The disease of alcoholism claimed another victim, and Robin Williams died because he couldn't live with the thought of taking one more drink.
If you believe me, congrats...if you don't, sorry but you are wrong. PEACE!

OMG! Can we just let this guy rest in peace. Why don't you guys make a story instead about the kardashians and how they were disrespectful at the VMA's silence tribute for Michael Brown.

One do***ent doesn't prove he did or did not have money troubles. But, I have to agree that I don't think it was about the money, it usually isn't.

TMZ, we know he didn't have money troubles already. He was depressed because of his show being cancelled an his recent health diagnosis. Find something new to report, PLEASE!!

This is exactly why you can't believe a word of what is reported here. They make stuff up and then claim sources gave them The tip. It borders on criminality and tmz should be ashamed of their constant exploitation o. Everything

It seems that many are still searching for an answer as to why he killed himself and are having trouble accepting that money doesn't buy happiness.

Stop it TMZ.
There is NEVER only ONE reason behind a suicide.
It is typical for onlookers to seek comfort for themselves by "finding" one.

Give it a rest TMZ. He's dead, get over it. The only thing you got right was your story that he was dead. After that it has been pure speculation. It's over. Back off.

This is another proof, that RW had NO reason to be so "depressed" to commit suicide and to do so much pain and grief to all the people who loved him.

All that BS, that he even was too depressed to write a final letter, or call anyone before... his death was a freaky ACCIDENT. And now, he`s in the same heaven like David Carradine etc. TRUTH!
