Widow Of Robin Williams' Reveals Real Reason He Killed Himself

After the Oscar-winning actor's death, it took his widow more than a year to speak out. In an interview she talks about life with Robin, what really caused his death, and why she forgives him.

Susan and Robin Williams had seven wonderful years together, three of them married, before the 63-year-old star killed himself. A tearful Susan told Amy Robach of ABC News that death was coming for Robin no matter what.

“If Robin was lucky, he would've had maybe three years left. And they would've been hard years,” said Susan. “And it's a good chance he would've been locked up.”

Before his death, Robin was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. Soon after his death, his autopsy revealed he had Lewy body dementia, a neurogenerative dementia related to Parkinson’s. Clumps of specific proteins in neurons, known as Lewy bodies, had accumulated in his brain. LBD causes a rapid cognitive decline. Some symptoms of LBD include hallucinations, the constant fluctuation of cognitive skills, loss of motor functions and sleep disorders.

Robin had long suffered from depression, anxiety and paranoia but Susan said it was ultimately LBD that killed him. Just days before his death his doctors were planning to send him for neurocognitive testing, but Susan believes his suicide was his way of taking control back.

According to Susan, "He was just saying, 'No!'"
