This is so heartbreaking.
On Good Morning America Tuesday, the Robin’s widow sat down with ABC News‘ Amy Robach and revealed quite a bit about her husband’s final moments, his unknown health problems, and how’s she’s been coping.
On Wednesday morning, GMA released a second part of the interview, in which Susan tells her side of the legal battle with Williams’ kids.
According to the Jumanji star’s widow, she was “forced” to go to court in order to protect Robin’s estate and retain the couple’s house!
Susan says she was still in the grieving process when calls started to come in regarding taking legal action regarding the Oscar winner’s estate:
“I was forced into it, basically…And when I say that, here’s what happened. Two and a half weeks after Robin had left, I was still in shock. And not back in our home. After being in the trenches with my husband for so long and trying to solve this thing, after seven years together in love, I was told that I might not be able to be able to keep our wedding gifts, that in fact, ├óΓé¼╦£While you’re out of the house ├óΓé¼┬ª we need to come in and take everything out.'”
She went on to express her shock and frustration over all the couple’s belongings being taken:
“And I’ll never forget being on the phone with one of the trustees and saying, ├óΓé¼╦£Are you kidding me? I’m not going to be able to keep our wedding gifts?’ What is this? I know Robin Williams is famous. He’s my husband. He’s my husband. If we’re talking that you guys think everything is memorabilia, then take me. He’s touched me. Where does this end?'”
Luckily, the case was settled out of court in early October and it seems that everyone, including Robin’s kids, were satisfied with the result. When the actor’s widow was asked about the agreement that was reached, she explained she received:
“Basically what my husband wanted, which was just that I could live in the home until I die. And that’s it. That it would be taken care of.”
Susan is now back in California in the home she once shared with the iconic comedian, doing her best to move on with her life and cherish the memories she has.
