Robin Williams’ widow has settled a legal spat with the tragic funnyman’s children.
Both sides expressed satisfaction over the settlement, which remains subject to court approval.
They also disagreed about the value of a reserve fund to keep Susan Williams in the San Francisco Bay Area home she shared with Robin Williams.
Among the items in dispute were watches, memorabilia, the tuxedo he was married in and photographs taken on his 60th birthday, according to court documents and previous statements by attorney Wagstaffe.
People reports that Susan Schneider Williams agreed to drop her petition to the relief of the comedian’s three children, Zachary, Zelda and Cody.
“Mrs. Williams is able to keep the few emotional items she requested, such as their wedding gifts, selected clothing items, a watch Robin often wore, plus the bike she and her husband bought together on their honeymoon”, reads the statement, providing some details but unable to list the full terms of the settlement.
Meredith Bushnell, who represents the three children said, ‘I think they’re just very happy to have this behind them’. The children were from previous marriages, and had claimed that their stepmother was “adding insult to a bad injury” by challenging the actor’s will.
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.
Graphic designer Susan Schneider Williams was his third wife.
Susan filed in December 2014 a petition because she allegedly did not get enough money to maintain Robin’s estate in Tiburon, California where the couple lived before he committed suicide that year after a bout with depression.
The dispute resulted in several court appearances before a San Francisco judge and mediation.
