The children of Robin Williams are “relieved” to have settled the estate dispute with the late actor’s wife, an attorney for the children told People.
“The children are relieved to have this behind them,” Meredith Bushnell, attorney for Williams’ children Zachary, Zelda and Cody said in a statement.
The children had been locked in a dispute with Williams’ wife Susan for nearly a year, with the two sides in contention over items such as family photographs, awards and the “Mork & Mindy” star’s bicycle collection. At one point, Williams’ children accused Susan of “adding insult to a terrible injury” by attempting to alter the estate.
The two sides settled their dispute on Friday, and while the terms of the settlement were not made public, attorneys for Susan said that she 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.”
They added that Williams’ children will receive “the vast majority of the items they demanded.”
Susan Williams, who married the comedian in 2011, added, “I feel like Robin’s voice has been heard and I can finally grieve in the home we shared together. While it was painful to have truckloads of his belongings removed from our home – it’s the few sentimental items I get to hold onto that mean everything to me. I thank God for this.”
Williams died in August 2014 at age 63. Authorities determined that Williams committed suicide, with the Marin County, Calif.’s coroner’s office saying that the cause of death was asphyxia due to hanging.
