Robin Williams’ wife has confirmed that the late actor was in the early stages of Parksinson’s disease and was still sober at the time of his tragic death. The beloved comedian, who was found dead in his California home on Monday, had been struggling with depression and mental health issues.
“Robin’s sobriety was intact and he was brave as he struggled with his own battles of depression, anxiety as well as early stages of Parkinson’s disease, which he was not yet ready to share publicly,” said his wife Susan Schneider in a statement.
“It is our hope in the wake of Robin’s tragic passing, that others will find the strength to seek the care and support they need to treat whatever battles they are facing so they may feel less afraid,” she voiced.
In a statement after his suicide, Susan stated that she was “utterly heartbroken” over the lose of her husband. His children also released emotional tributes to their father.
