This is just so sad!
In fact, in a candid interview with People magazine, the late funnyman's wife revealed that prior to his death he was told that he'd have to enter an inpatient treatment facility for his Parkinson's disease — perhaps indefinitely.
"This is when a pivotal moment happened. The psychiatrist said 'Now, Robin…' – and mind you this is a few weeks before he left [died] – 'It is no longer an option to have inpatient neurocognitive evaluation. This is now mandatory and we need to decide, you need to decide where you want to go and we're all going to figure this out.'"
However, the Oscar winner's autopsy later revealed that he suffered from Lewy Body Dementia — which happens to cause disorientation and hallucinations. Tragic.
This meeting with the psychiatrist came about after Miz Williams found her husband with a head injury after an accident with a door in July 2014.
This news obviously shook Robin to his core, something his love noticed.
We can't imagine how difficult this must be for her.
The emotional interview is very telling and reveals some insight into what the comedian was going through in his struggles with depression and Parkinson's disease.
Susan not only reveals the last loving words exchanged between her and the love of her life, but also talked quite a bit about seeing her husband "disintegrating" before her eyes.
Apparently Robin suffered from Lewy body dementia, a disorder that would have caused a progressive decline in mental abilities. Susan explained:
This is so sad.
But the pain of those touched by Williams' career is far exceeded by that felt by Susan Williams, the widow of the late comedian.
Susan spoke to ABC News reporter Amy Robach about the actor's death, and how she's been healing since that day.
Check out a preview of the interview (below):
Now, the 1992 film is being digitally re-released, along with never-before-seen clips from the House Of Mouse that feature outtakes of Williams' vocal work!
On Thursday's Good Morning America, the cast and creators of the Arabian tale sat down to share memories of the Oscar winner and his part in the movie's long-lasting impact!
Ron Clements, who co-wrote and co-directed the movie, said there was "nobody else that could be the Genie," explaining that the part was written with Williams in mind. He elaborated:
Screen Junkies has deconstructed yet another beloved film from your childhood — and this one's a doozy!
Some of the things they point out are Aladdin's nipple-less chest, Jasmine's MC Hammer pants, and the questionable age difference between the two lovers! (She's only 15 years old… Gross!)
But they also highlight all the AH-Mazing songs in the film, and point out that Robin Williams is the only person who could ever play the Genie (Take note, Disney!)
Ch-ch-check out the HIGHlarious honest trailer to have your childhood ruined once again (below)!!!
We're glad this mess is finally over.
According to legal docs, a settlement between Robin Williams' kids and his widow, Susan Schneider Williams, has been reached.
For those who don't know, the parties were feuding over Robin's estate ever since the actor took his own life in August 2014. The kids claimed they had the right to William's memorabilia, like his awards, photos, and impressive bike collection, a point Susan vigorously contended. Not to mention the actor's third widow also believed that the estate wasn't giving her enough money to live on or to maintain one of the couple's houses in California.
Now it looks like Schneider has dropped her claims against Rob's kids which most likely means a settlement was reached.
We'll just never know what the agreement is considering the files are confidential.
At least the matter is resolved. Phew.

Such sad news.
After the news broke on Tuesday, that Jim Carrey's on-again/off-again girlfriend Cathriona White, passed away from a suspected suicide, Robin Williams' daughter Zelda took to Twitter to share her grief over Miz White's death and to raise awareness about suicide prevention.
