Robin Williamstragic death at age 63 came as a shock to the world who knew him only as a lovable comic figure. But a source close to the Mrs. Doubtfire star tells that in addition to his addiction struggle, the actor recently confided to a family friend that he had “serious money troubles,” and was worried about his family’s financial security.

According to a family friend who had spoken to Williams recently, “All he could talk about were serious money troubles. There were clearly other issues going on and Robin sounded distant during the telephone conversation. Robin was known for being so generous to his friends and family during the height of his success, and would help anyone out that needed it.”

“There was also frustration that Robin expressed at having to take television and movie roles he didn’t want to take, but had to for the paycheck,” the source said, referencing his recently announced decision to film Mrs. Doubtfire 2. “Doing sequels was never Robin’s thing, and he wasn’t that excited at having to reprise the role of Mrs. Doubtfire, which was scheduled to start filming later this year.”

  1. This won’t be a popular opinion, but I can’t feel sorry for him, but I do for his family. Suicide is NEVER the answer and is the most destructive selfish act one can commit. It solves none of your problems while simultaneously placing a nuclear bomb in the laps of the people who care for you. It aids your enemies and destroys your family and friends. He had money problems? BOO-FRICKING-HOO! He had 4 movies coming out and could have gone on tour. People lived through being held in POW camps for YEARS enduring torture, starvation and disease, but didn’t commit suicide. People lived through Auscwhitz and didn’t commit suicide. Did his problems compare to theirs. Hardly. Cowardly act.

    • Yes, suicide is a cowardly act, but many people who have committed suicide were mentally ill and not in their right mind. Mental illness is real, and it causes people to do things that they wouldn’t do if they were of a sound mind. I’m not defending Robin Williams in this matter. But we don’t know what he was dealing with when he took his own life.
