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.

How come his wife disappeared overnight??? How come they were sleeping in separate rooms??? Were they getting ready to divorce and he couldn't handle another divorce??? Was she having an affair and that's why she's not too broken up??? Inquiring minds want to know???

On what celebrity planet is $600K a "huge" amount of money? TMZ exaggerates every headline to get you to read it and it never lives up to it. $600K is a massive amount for the majority of the nation, but it's nothing to a major celebrity with potential money woes.

Sorry but only 600,000$ isn't a lot of famous people. Didn't Brittany Spears get millions for performing in Vegas? I'd rather see Robin Williams than her

Enough speculation and endless banter TMZ. Let Robin Williams rest in peace.

I grew up watching Robin Williams. Any time I was depressed I would always watch or listen to him to bring me back up to my feet. It hurts to hear the negative blogs about him that is all just pure B.S.!!! Rest in peace Robin you will never be forgotten! !
