Susan Schneider, the widow of Robin Williams, is due to give her first television interview since his suicide last year. The interview will be with ABC News journalist Amy Robach on Good Morning America due to air on Tuesday Nov. 3.
It is believed the beloved actor, Robin Williams, who died by suicide in August 2014 at age 63 in his home in California took his own life following depression and the early onset of Parkinson’s disease.
Widow Schneider, a 50-year-old Graphic designer, was Williams’ third wife marrying him in 2011 a year after his previous divorce was settled.
‘’It’s the best love I ever dreamed of,” Schneider says in an emotional preview clip aired on Fri. 30. Through a flood of tears Schneider talks about the moment she first discovered Williams had taken his own life she says, “I just screamed ‘Robin, what happened? What did you do?’”
Schneider had recently been involved in an ugly court battle over money, clothing and personal items with Williams’ three children. Williams had stated in his will that he wanted Schneider to stay in their multi-million dollar home, with a trust to pay for the mortgage and upkeep. But Schneider claimed it was not enough money and the court battle began between Schneider and Williams’ children Zak, 32, from his first marriage, Zelda, 25, and Cody, 23, from his second marriage who accused Schneider of being greedy. The estimated $100 million battle was finally settled out of court earlier this month.
Not only will Schneider share fond moments with Williams in the interview it will cover the last conversation the couple had together as well as unseen video footage.
