Eight months ago, Robin Williams’ kids found themselves in a truly awkward position after their stepmother (and Robin Williams’ wife of three years) Susan Williams started getting greedy and trying to grab more money from their part of their father’s will. At the time, Susan was pulling an “I don’t know them” every time Zachary, Zelda, and Cody Williams pulled up to the front gate to collect the stuff their dad left to them in his will, which is always a classy move. Well, eight months later, Page Six says that Susan and the Williams kids have finally reached a settlement.
According to Susan’s lawyer, Susan gets to keep the San Francisco Bay Area home that she shared with Robin and will get enough money to maintain the house for the rest of her life. No word on whether that’s Swiffer cloth cash or a full-time housekeeper cash, but I’m assuming it’s the latter. Susan also gets one of Robin’s watches, a bike they bought on their honeymoon, and all their wedding presents. Somewhere in a home in the San Francisco Bay Area, Susan’s lawyer is Photoshopping the words “$16.8 million dollars, Item No. 4528L” onto a Crate & Barrel gift receipt.
Page Six says both sides are happy with the outcome of the settlement, and the only thing left is for a judge to give it the OK. Zachary, Zelda, and Cody’s lawyer adds: “I think they’re just very happy to have this behind them.” I’d like to think that was shade, but it’s probably just the truth.
So there we go. The ghost of Robin Williams can finally sleep peacefully at night knowing his family isn’t fighting over petty shit anymore. Now he can start focusing on more important things, like reenacting episodes of Mork & Mindy with the ghost of Jonathan Winters for the angels in Heaven (please don’t try to convince me that’s not what he’s doing, it’s what I want to believe).
