Robin Williams’ widow and his three children have ended their legal battle over the late actor’s property. The out-of-court settlement is yet to be disclosed in details. Nevertheless, it brings to an end a legal fight that started after William’s death last year.
After the settlement, Susan Williams’ lawyer said that Mrs. William would stay in the San Francisco home, which she had shared with her late husband. Apart from keeping possession of various items, she will be provided with living expenses. The lawyer added that the three children were happy that the legal fight had come to an end.
Williams’ window will receive expenses to maintain the estate for the rest of her life. She will also receive other thing such as the watch that comedian usually wore, all wedding gifts, and a bike that was bought on their honeymoon.
The settlement brings to and ends a public dispute that occurred after the 60-year old star committed suicide in August last year.
The terms of agreement concerning late Willim are yet to be approved by the court. However, both side expressed satisfaction.
Meredith Bushnell, a layer who is representing the three adult children Williams’ previous marriages- Cody, Zelda and Zachary- said: “All the children are now very pleased to have this behind them.”
Williams’ window approached the court last December, claiming that contents of the home she was sharing with her late husband should not be included in the items the star left to his children. She also asked the court to declare that some of Robin Williams’ items that were seized should be returned.
Williams’ three children entered appearance and filed a defence, stating that Susan was “adding insults to an injury”. They claimed that she was trying to alter the trust documents and deprive them a lot of property that their father intended them to inherit.
According to Susan Williams’ Lawyer and court documents, the items in dispute were photographs, the tuxedo used in marriage and watches.
