Robin Williams’ Show Cancellation Had More To Do With His Suicide Than People Thought! Saw It As A 'Personal Failure'

We recently learned that Robin Williams was battling Parkinson’s disease, but that apparently isn’t the main thing that drove him to his tragic suicide.

According to a new report, it was the cancellation of his TV show The Crazy Ones. It lasted only one season before getting the axe and the actor saw it as a “personal failure.”

Williams reportedly told one person before the show started:

"My face is all over town [on billboards] and it's all on my back."

So, that’s why he went to Hazelden Addiction Treatment Center. For depression, not substance abuse.

But that wasn’t the only thing that had Williams down. He also expressed his sadness about how hard it was to get a job in Hollywood at his age, adding that even Robert De Niro was struggling to get parts.

As for Parkinson’s, according to a report, Williams was much less concerned with that because he’d been dealing with it for five months, and doctors told him that with meds, he wouldn’t see any symptoms for six or seven years.

Hollywood is a tough town, and this only shows just how hard it can be on even its most beloved talent.

    Why does everything have to happen at once? Why is it some people are tested more than others? I will never understand. It just sucks.

    It's all Sarah Michelle Gellar's fault.

    Time to let him RIP, no one will ever know for sure since he did not leave a note.

    I heard someone say it might not have been intentional and was an erotic play like that happened before with a few other celebrities.

    I like to c actors age. They get better with age. The HOT silver fox, Robert DeNiro "Ages of Love" is his best work since "The Mission", there is nothing better than a ensemble piece with incredible characters. Comedy? Try not to laugh when u c "ELF" with Bob Newhart (72 when movie released), Don Rickles was hysterical until his last breath and my favourite actresses Helen Mirren and Judy Dench give their characters impecable layers. More please; Hollywood need not be ageist.
