The world has just lost the beloved actor, comedian and Academy Award winning movie star, Robin Williams.
The actor was found dead in his California home Monday afternoon (August 11, 2014), from what’s believed to be an apparent suicide due to asphyxia.
Williams was last seen alive at his house at 10 PM Sunday night.
Robin went back to rehab last month to focus on his sobriety. We’re told alcohol was an issue.
Williams struggled with cocaine and alcohol abuse in the early ’80s but was sober for 20 years … with the exception of a stint in rehab in 2006.
Robin’s wife, Susan Schneider, says, “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.”
Robin’s last tweet was on July 31 … wishing his daughter Zelda Rae a happy 25th birthday. He posted a #tbt instagram pic of himself holding her as a child.
The actor was 63.
