Robin Williams' Children Battling Widow Over Estate

Robin Wiliams' children are battling his widow over rights to the actors belongings.

The late actor's children, Zak, 31, Zelda, 25, and 23-year-old Cody Williams say the widow refused to allow them into his house after he died
The wife of tragic Robin Williams has become embroiled in a bitter dispute with his three children over the actor’s estate.
Court documents filed in December and this month outline a bitter disagreement over the Oscar winner's money and property with Susan Schneider complaining someone came into the house days after his death and took some of the actor's belongings.
In legal papers filed just before Christmas in San Francisco, lawyers claimed some property was “unilaterally removed” from their home “days after Mr. Williams’s untimely death.”
However the Mrs Doubtfire star's children have hit back claiming it is an attempt by her to change his wishes and change his will.
His children, Zak, 31, Zelda, 25, and 23-year-old Cody Williams say the widow refused to allow them into his house after Williams died.
They say in their filing they “are heartbroken” saying Schneider, 50, has “acted against his wishes by challenging the plans he so carefully made for his estate.”
The say their father, who was 63 when he died, had said on his death they were to receive his Oscar, items from his films memorabilia, action figures, books, theatre masks and other items. Schneider, who was married to the actor for three years, acknowledges she has no right to items related to his acting career, including props from Mork and Mindy.
However it is claimed she would like other items like his dinner suit from their wedding and other "knick knacks." The children have acknowledge she can keep these items but believe she is trying to alter the terms of the “jewelry”.
The reports claims the children were to get it all but she claims it does not include his watches. A source close to Williams said he would be heartbroken by the dispute.
The actor, who committed suicide at him home near San Francisco last August, left his estate valued at £33million to his children.

^^^Me three...this happened to my brother and his sisters. His dad wasn't even married to the woman, they were together for four years and hadn't been together in six years when he passed. He put some shit in her name and never reconciled it. He probably assumed she would do the right thing. SMH
