Robin Williams’ Wife Reveals The Real Reason For His Suicide (Watch)

Fact checked
Robin Williams' widow has revealed that depression isn't the only reason Robin Williams chose to end his life in 2014.

The world lost an incredible man, actor, and comedian named Robin Williams in 2014. Having chosen to take his life via suicide, people were devastated upon receiving the news, distraught by the idea that someone so popular and funny would opt to end his own life.

Three years later, the late comedian’s widow has spoken out in an interview with Good Morning America, and she revealed that depression isn’t the only reason Robin Williams chose to end his life three years ago.

During the interview, Susan said:

“It was not depression that killed Robin Williams. Depression was one of let’s call it 50 symptoms, and it was a small one.”’

Instead, Robin Williams’ widow suggests a more likely reason for his suicide – a theory which is supported by his personal doctors.

“I’ve spent this last year trying to find out what killed Robin,” said Susan, “to understand what we were fighting, what we were in the trenches fighting. And one of the doctors said, ‘Robin was very aware that he was losing his mind and there was nothing he could do about it.”

TrueActivist report: Troubled by his mental afflictions, the comedian likely chose suicide as a final form of control over his own body and destiny. After performing an autopsy on Robin’s body, it was discovered that the man who was able to make everyone smile had developed dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB).

Right after Alzheimer’s, DLB is the most common form of dementia. Symptoms of the affliction include hallucinations, altered mental states, and deteriorating motor functions. Even on a subconscious level, some suspect, he was aware that his body was failing him and sought control.

I know now the doctors—the whole team—was doing exactly the right things,” commented Susan, “It’s just that this disease was faster than us and bigger than us. We would have gotten there eventually.

According to Susan, patients with DLB behave like a “pinball machine. You don’t know exactly what you’re looking at.

The findings match what Robin exhibited in his final days. Susan says her former husband would go from “totally lucid” one moment to be speaking things that “didn’t match” just minutes later. Before he committed suicide, his condition escalated to the point that it seemed “like the dam broke.”

Whereas most loved ones harbor anger toward those who left them willingly, Susan is at peace with Robin’s final attempt to control his life. She stated:

I mean, there are many reasons. Believe me. I’ve thought about this—of what was going on in his mind, what made him ultimately commit, you know, to do that act. And I think he was just saying, ‘No.’ And I don’t blame him one bit. I don’t blame him one bit.”

  1. from “totally lucid” one moment to be speaking things that “didn’t match” just minutes later… haha . HE ALWAYS TALKED LIKE THAT.. HE WAS A TOTAL FUKWIT… always jibbering shit and thinking he was funny…he opened a lot of doors in the spirit realm he couldn’t close…he was associating with evil people.. he was also involved in the occult.. he was destined to that final curtain…now he is waiting in the ground to enter hell…. no great loss at all…. he was not “an incredible man”…far from it.. just another showbiz loser… pffftt

    • With the name you have chosen as a play with “hew” sounding like who, so who’s a nobody? That will be you. Whether you are just a general fuckwit or that you are trolling it really doesn’t matter, you’re just chatting shit, you will die like the rest of us,

    • There’s only one F…wit on here matey and it’s you! You’re an Idiot and an F…king Troll!

  2. hewasanobody..You have no idea how the mind works yours is obviously not fully functioning, to talk about someone whos private hell you know nothing about the way you have is a disgrace….its seems to me you are the fukwit. I have a brother who has Parkinsons with Lewy Dementia which thank god at the moment is being controlled with drugs…But our family has been through hell this past year with his erratic mental behaviour, one minute acting quite normal and the next constantly complaining about everything and anything and we could do nothing to pacify him…The voices in his head telling him to kill our 91 year old mum..His hallucinations where people were walking in and out of his room, The crying because people were hiding behind curtains and he wanted them to go..His life and our family life has been a complete and utter nightmare….But l thank god for our English National Health Service who swiftly diagnosed him and he is now receiving the help he needs..But l know what the future holds and l am terrified for him and our family. I dont know if Robbin Williams was brave to do what he did but l totally understand why he choose this way out Perhaps he was having a bad day mentally and he wanted to go while he still had control over his life…DONT judge people until you have walked in their shoes

  3. @eastendgirl..Your brother has demons on him…nothing more nothing less…… Tell him to draw near to God and he will draw near to your brother…. tell him to start reading his Bible…. Robin Williams was a loser he contributed absolutely nothing worthwhile .. you sound pretty messed up eastendgirl… you might join your brother in his daily Bible reading… we are about to face the biggest economic and social collapse in history… it will crush you..that much is clear… If you believe in your heart and confess with your mouth Jesus Christ is Lord you will be Saved…get onto it… its close now
