Robin Williams left $50 million estate to three kids: report

Robin Williams’ $  50 million estate will be divided among his three grown children — Zachary, 31, Zelda, 25, and Cody, 22.Jay Paul/Getty Images Robin Williams’ $ 50 million estate will be divided among his three grown children — Zachary, 31, Zelda, 25, and Cody, 22.

Doomed funnyman Robin Williams reportedly left a $ 50 million estate to his three kids.

The Academy Award-winner set up a trust for his children in a will dated Jan. 31, 2011, that was filed in a California court three months after he killed himself, The Daily Mail reported Tuesday.

It is called the Robin Williams Trust and the beneficiaries are the doomed comedian’s grown children: Zachary, 31, Zelda, 25, and Cody, 22, the paper reported.

Fearful of being taken to the cleaners after two failed marriages, Williams also ensured that third wife Susan Schneider would be taken care of in a prenuptial agreement they signed before their 2011 wedding.

The courthouse in Marin County, Calif., was closed due to Veterans Day and The Daily Mail account about the will could not be independently confirmed.

But by all accounts, Williams was devoted to his children and wife.

Williams, 63, who struggled with depression stemming from bipolar disorder as well as drug and alcohol addiction for most of his life, tied a belt around his neck and hanged himself Aug. 11 at his suburban San Francisco home.

The Daily News, citing autopsy results, reported last week that Williams had only prescription medications in his body.

In addition to having Parkinson’s disease, Williams has experienced a “recent increase in paranoia” and he may have been afflicted with Lewy Body Dementia, The News reported.

LBD disrupts normal brain functions and causes some sufferers to see phantom people, animals and objects.

After Williams died, spokeswoman Mara Buxbaum said he had been “battling severe depression” and it was widely believed that this figured in his suicide.

But on Tuesday, TMZ.com reported that William was tormented by hallucinations and that Schneider told doctors her husband had been complaining about how the meds he was taking made him feel.

Radio legend Casey Kasem, who died in June, also suffered from LBD and Parkinson’s.
