Robin Williams’ children and widow in stalemate over comedian’s estate – Los Angeles Times

Talks over Robin Williams’ estate are at a stalemate, with his widow and adult children unable to reach an agreement, court records show.

Cody, Zelda and Zachary Williams assert in court documents that Susan Schneider Williams is trying to negotiate more money and is seeking a guaranteed income stream.

Under contention is the value of Williams’ Tiburon, Calif., property, where he wanted his wife to live after his death. She will never own the property, which will later be inherited by his children.

According to the documents, Schneider Williams says that trustees overseeing the estate have calculated the value of the property and its associated expenses — which she would be responsible for — but have not explained how they came up with those numbers. She is asking the court to rule on the issue.

The Williams children say she is seeking more than what was discussed as part of the trustee agreement. In documents filed last week in San Francisco Superior Court, they said that Schneider Williams was “seeking to increase her share of the trust assets at the expense of the Williams children.”
