Williams’ widow, children settle fight
Robin Williams’ widow and his three children from previous marriages reached a settlement in their legal fight over the late actor’s estate, ending a public dispute following the beloved comedian’s suicide last year.
Terms of the out-of-court settlement were not disclosed but lawyer James Wagstaffe, who is representing Susan Williams, said his client will remain in the San Francisco-area home she shared with Williams and receive living expenses to maintain the home for the rest of her life.
Wagstaffe said she also will receive awatch Robin Williams often wore, a bike bought on their honeymoon and their wedding gifts.
Both sides expressed satisfaction over the settlement, which remains subject to court approval.
Lawyer Meredith Bushnell, who represents the three children said, “I think they’re just very happy to have this behind them.”
Susan Williams filed a court petition in December, saying the contents of the Tiburon home she shared with Robin Williams should be excluded from the items the actor left to his children.
She also claimed that some of her husband’s personal items were taken without her permission.
Williams’ three children countered that Susan Williams was “adding insult to a terrible injury” by trying to change the trust agreement and deprive them of items that their father clearly intended to leave to them.
