Financial Problems May Have Played a Part in Robin Williams Hanging Himself

The 63-year-old comedian, after two pricey divorces, was upset that he needed work to insure his family’s future financial security, a family friend told RadarOnline.

Update: Gossip Cop reports that money trouble story is not true.

“All he could talk about (was) serious money troubles,” the friend told the website about a recent chat with Williams. “There were clearly other issues going on and Robin sounded distant during the telephone conversation.”

An autopsy and a news conference were planned Tuesday by Marin County officials, who have already said the cause of Williams’ death appeared to be suicide by asphyxiation.

CBS News obtained a Marin County fire scanner audio in which an operator describes what happened as an “apparent suicide attempt by hanging.” TMZ.com reported Williams’ body was found inside his house, not in the garage, and that there was no sign of a suicide note.

The troubled Williams was even rattled by the impending resurrection of one of his most famous film creations, “Mrs. Doubtfire,” the friend told RadarOnline.

“There was also frustration that Robin expressed at having to take television and movie roles he didn’t want to take, but had to for the paycheck,” the family friend said. “Doing sequels was never Robin’s thing, and he wasn’t that excited at having to reprise the role of Mrs. Doubtfire.”

The movie was scheduled to begin shooting late this year.

Williams’ sitcom “The Crazy Ones” was canceled by CBS this year after just one season, and he returned this summer to a 12-step program for treatment of his well-chronicled drug and alcohol problems.

In an interview last year, Williams typically made a joke when asked if he lost all his money in his two divorces. “It’s ripping your heart out through your wallet.”

A 911 call came in at 11:55 a.m. Monday from his home in Tiburon, Calif., and the Oscar-winning actor and comedian was pronounced dead just seven minutes later reports Daily News.

Williams, 63, was last seen alive Sunday night about 10 p.m. Williams’ three children were financially protected by a trust set up by the comedian, according to TMZ.com. The kids receive their payments at three different milestones: their 21st, 25th and 30th birthdays, the report said.
