It’s been more than six months since Robin Williams tragically took his own life. Since then, his children — daughter Zelda, 25, and sons Zak, 31, and Cody, 23 — have been enthralled in a legal battle with his wife, Susan Schneider, about the late comedian’s estate.
And while a court hearing to resolve the disagreement was recently postponed, Robin’s daughter has broken her silence regarding their ongoing strife.
On her Tumblr, she wrote:
“While I have not had, and will continue not to have any comment on my family’s current legal proceedings (as their private nature has already been violated enough), there is one bit of misinformation being proliferated by the media that I have been made aware of and strongly feel the need to correct. My brothers and I have not at any point since dad’s death been invited to or visited his and Susan’s house in Tiburon, nor have we removed anything from it. For reporters to twist Susan’s court petition to imply that she believes my siblings and I did otherwise is to attempt to create drama where there is none and spread outright falsehoods, sadly a more and more common occurrence on the ‘news’ these days.
“At least in this instance, it is gossip I can disprove with actual fact.
“Anywho [sic], that’s all for now. So long, and thanks for all the fish!”
This comes shortly after ‘In Touch’ reported that Robin’s loved ones felt “betrayed” that Susan hadn’t properly handled his lifelong battle with depression and substance abuse.

“They know that Robin had his demons, but they feel that Susan left him alone to deal with them,” a family friend told the mag earlier this month.
“She left the house without checking on him or giving him a peck on the cheek or anything — nothing. And that’s how it always was.”
Susan, Zelda and all related parties are due back in court for a hearing on June 1.
