Two years after Robin Williams’ suicide, a source tells In Touch that his widow, Susan Schneider, is planning to write a tell-all about his private life — and his family is not happy about it.
“She’s trying to write something,” a family friend exclusively reveals. “She stands to make millions.”
“[Robin] would have hated this,” insists the family friend, who says the notoriously private actor would never have wanted his third wife to spill details of his private life and difficult final days. "Robin’s family has a big team of lawyers, and they don’t want this to happen.”

“He only wanted to be remembered as someone who brought laughter and joy to people around the world.”

She’s already angered Robin’s family with tell-all interviews. In bombshell TV interviews, Susan revealed that her husband — who was not only suffering from Parkinson’s disease and ongoing depression and anxiety issues, but also the degenerative brain disorder Lewy body dementia — had been scheduled to enter an institution. The kids were outraged to learn the news about their father at the same time as the rest of the world. “Susan kept this to herself,” says the friend.
Susan isn’t revealing her plans. When In Touch asked her lawyer if she is writing, or planning to write, a book about her life with Robin, the lawyer didn’t address the book issue and replied: “Susan is currently focused on raising awareness around Lewy body dementia, the disease that took her husband’s life and affects more than 1.4 million people nationwide, for which there is no cure.”
