Robin Williams’ widow, kids settle estate fight

Sharing is caring!

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 James Wagstaffe, who is representing Susan Williams, said his client will remain in the San Francisco Bay Area home she shared with Williams and receive living expenses to maintain the home for the rest of her life.

Both sides expressed satisfaction over the settlement, which remains subject to court approval. Wagstaffe and Meredith Bushnell, who represents three adult children from previous marriages — Zachary, Zelda and Cody— said they expect the judge’s approval.

“Susan gets to enforce Robin’s wishes. She gets to stay in the house as Robin wanted, with the trust being created to pay the expenses,” Wagstaffe said.

The dispute resulted in several court appearances before a San Francisco judge and mediation.
