It’s been stated that Williams had been battling a deep depression as well as trying to maintain his sobriety. The [typography font=”Cantarell” size=”14″ size_format=”px” color=”#ff6666″]Give Me Mora[/typography] staff is currently in shock as we try to process how this happened, but more importantly, WHY this happened. Robin Williams was one of the most talented actors of our time and his charisma lit up both the small and big screen.
Williams’ publicist Mara Buxbaum told The Hollywood Reporter: “Robin Williams passed away this morning. He has been battling severe depression of late. This is a tragic and sudden loss. The family respectfully asks for their privacy as they grieve during this very difficult time.”
The coroner’s office is currently examining all avenues to be sure of his cause of death. They will be doing a full examination including toxicology report tomorrow, August 12.
His wife, Susan Schneider (as told by The Hollywood Reporter), stated this morning:
“This morning, I lost my husband and my best friend, while the world lost one of its most beloved artists and beautiful human beings. I am utterly heartbroken. On behalf of Robin’s family, we are asking for privacy during our time of profound grief. As he is remembered, it is our hope the focus will not be on Robin’s death, but on the countless moments of joy and laughter he gave to millions.”
We really hope his death was some kind of freak accident that could not be prevented rather than a suicide. Unfortunately, our inner demons take over and we just can’t beat them.
Robin Williams’ death is just so sad and heartbreaking. Goes to show that everyone really is fighting an inner battle that we might not know about. Be compassionate.
We’ll keep you updated as more news comes in…
