Robin Williams' family settles legal battle over his estate

Robin Williams’ widow Susan Schneider Williams and his three children Zachary, Zelda and Cody have all ended their nearly year-long battle over the actor’s estate. According to a report from the Huffington Post, the legal dispute over Williams’ $100 million estate has been settled out of court.

Reportedly, his children were set to inherit his full estate upon his passing, including thousands of personal items. In his will, he also included a provision for his wife. Schneider claimed that she wasn’t receiving enough funds to maintain the home she shared with Williams prior to his death. Still, his children said that she was “adding insult to a terrible injury” by trying to change things up.

While exact terms of the agreement were not disclosed, lawyers stated Schneider will receive enough support to continue living in the home during her lifetime. Zachary, Zelda and Cody Williams, however, will eventually inherit the property.

“While it’s hard to speak of this as a win, given it stems from the greatest loss of all, I am deeply grateful to the judge for helping resolve these issues,” Schneider said in a statement obtained by People. The actor’s widow was also able to keep “the few emotional items she requested,” including wedding gifts, select clothing and a favorite watch.

Williams’ children will receive the majority of their father’s personal possessions, including his Academy Award, six Golden Globes, two Emmys and five Grammy awards, according to the Los Angeles Times.

“The children are relieved to have this behind them,” a lawyer for the Williams children told The Associated Press.

We’re just glad that everyone can finally move on from this. RIP Robin Williams.
