Robin Williams' Widow Reveals Why She Went to Court over His Estate: 'I Had to Fight to Keep My Husband's Slippers'

Originally posted 11/05/2015 11:50AM

In finally speaking out about what really drove Robin Williams to commit suicide, his widow Susan Williams told PEOPLE that first and foremost, she hopes to raise awareness about Lewy Body Dementia, the brain disease that led Williams to commit suicide.

Second, she wants to clear up the rumors printed about her, including those about her highly-publicized dispute with Williams' three children over her late husband's estate.

"I couldn't even look at it; it was so wrong, I couldn't read it," Susan says of coverage of the probate court fight between her and the trustees of Williams' estate. "All of it was so wrong. What happened was, two and a half weeks after Robin [died] the trustees were starting to do what they do, I was not even back at home."

Susan says she was soon told that she would probably not be able to keep her wedding gifts because they fell under the loosely defined category of memorabilia. (A lawyer for Williams' children declined to comment for this story.)

"They were going to come and start clearing out items in the house without me even here," she recalls. "And the definition of 'memorabilia' kind of included everything, meaning there were no [parameters]. I raised my [concern]. I said, 'Can we discuss this?' "
