Feud over father Robin Williams’ estate

After Robin Williams committed suicide in his California home (Paradise Cay) in August 2014, the whole world faced the death of the great and beloved icon. The family, on the other hand, had their hands full dealing with the great loss, public speculation and a legal battle. Robin Williams’ third wife (Susan Schneider) wrestled for his personal possessions with children Zachary Pym, Zelda and Cody Williams.

The father of three left his estate to his children. They claimed that Schneider had refused to appraise the house after their father’s death. Schneider’s lawyer claimed some belongings were “unilaterally” removed from her home a few days after her husband’s death. The children believe she was trying to change the use of the word “jewelry” and that her father’s desire was to receive items from his movie memorabilia, books, props and his Oscars.

Although his films grossed nearly $5 billion worldwide, he was near bankruptcy at the time of his death and was reportedly worth about $50 million as a result of his multiple divorces. The two parties conceded by allowing Schneider a fraction of the estate that enabled her to stay there for the rest of her life. Schneider was also allowed to keep some personal items for emotional reasons, like the bike they bought together on their honeymoon, their wedding gifts, and a watch.


Cody Alan Williams’ father set up a trust fund for his children, although the amount is unknown, the trust was not conditional on his death. Cody’s net worth is estimated to be around $6 million as of 2019.
