    Friends report Robin Williams’ Money Troubles

     
    The great “Jumanji” actor and stand-up comic, Robin Williams was recently found dead in his home in California. Its been heard that the actor was fighting depression due to some money problems. Robin Williams was found hanged in his apartment while his friends suggested that he had been telling them about serious money issues. He had also sought treatment for his depression a few weeks before this incident.

    The actor was already depressed, struggling with drug and alcohol abuse. The once worth £75 million person was also fighting with money issues after alimony payments to two ex-wives. Soon after, he was also trying to sell his 600-acre California house.

    His final hit by depression could have been from a cancellation of a television show “The Crazy Ones” in May 2014. This was while he was at a rehabilitation facility. A friend told Radar Online that the only thing Robin could talk about in his final days was about him being broke. He also said that in his years of prime, Robin would help any friend or family member in need.

    In addition to all, Robin was also frustrated off the television and movie roles that he had to take for the sake of a paycheck. One of the neighbors also commented how Robin was so depressed that he had merely became a shell of himself. It was as if he was depleted off all emotions.

    Recently, in July, the actor was checked into the Hazelden Addiction Treatment Center in Minnesota, which his spokesperson said was only to fine-tune his commitment to staying sober. Who knew that the alcohol withdrawal would end up taking his life?
