Robin Williams leaves $50 million estate to children - report

Tragic comedian Robin Williams left an estate worth $50 million to his three children, according to a will filed in California last week (ends07Nov14).

The Oscar winner committed suicide in August (14), and now, three months after his death, his final wishes have been made public after the documents were lodged in a Marin County court.


According to the U.K.'s The Daily Mail, the actor set up the Robin Williams Trust in a will dated 31 January, 2011, with the beneficiaries of his estate listed as his three adult children, Zachary, Zelda and Cody, from his first two marriages.


The will also ensured financial support for his third wife Susan Schneider, who would be taken care of as part of a prenuptial agreement they signed prior to their wedding in 2011.


The news emerges days after the Marin County coroner officially ruled Williams' death a suicide.


The funnyman was struggling with depression, anxiety and the early stages of Parkinson's disease at the time of his passing.
