Robin Williams Wife, Children Still Wrangling Over His Estate

The estate of Oscar-winning actor and comedian Robin Williams remains unsettled 10 months after his death and a San Francisco judge has given his wife and his three children from a previous marriage two additional months to work out their differences.

Superior Court Judge Andrew Y.S. Cheng ordered Williams' wife Susan Schneider Williams and his children into mediation back in March to resolve their issues over 1,200 items belonging to the entertainer, reported Reuters. On Monday, Cheng gave the parties two additional months to work through their issues.

People magazine reported in March that the actor's will gave his children clothing, jewelry and personal photos taken prior to his marriage to Schneider Williams. The will, according to People, also entitled them to his awards, memorabilia and tangible personal property from his California home where he died last August.

Schneider Williams, though, has claimed that numerous items in the home belonged to her since she shared them with her husband and should not be included in the items willed to his children, such as watches, the tuxedo he wore to their wedding, his slippers and other personal items, reported BBC News.

In all, some 300 items remain in dispute.

Zelda Williams posted a message on Tumblr after the March hearing to refute charges that she and her brothers – Zachary and Cody – had already taken things from the home.

"My brothers and I have not at any point since dad's death been invited to or visited his and Susan's house in Tiburon, nor have we removed anything from it," said Zelda Williams. "For reporters to twist Susan's court petition to imply that she believes my siblings and I did otherwise is to attempt to create drama where there is none and spread outright falsehoods, sadly a more and more common occurrence on the ‘news’ these days."

Williams received four Academy Award nominations in his career, winning a best supporting actor Oscar in 1998 for "Good Will Hunting." He also won six Golden Globes and two Emmy Awards for his entertainment work.

Williams was 63 when he died at his Marin County home Aug. 11. The death was ruled a suicide.
