Despite Reporting Financial Problems, Robin Williams’ Left Family Provided For

Robin_WilliamsRobin Williams died Monday at age 63, leaving behind his wife, and three children from his two previous marriages. Williams had publically discussed his financial problems in recent years. However, Williams’ careful estate planning may have allowed him to provide for his surviving family members, despite his money trouble in his last years of life. Williams created at least two trusts during his life, one that includes his two California properties, and one of unknown value that name his three children as beneficiaries.
