Marsha was there for Robin while he battled addiction over the years. It was reported that Robin’s relapse after 20 years of sobriety was a big factor in his divorce with Marsha.

Williams confessed to Parade:

One day I walked into a store and saw a little bottle of Jack Daniel’s. And then that voice — I call it the ‘lower power’ — goes, ‘Hey. Just a taste. Just one.’ I drank it, and there was that brief moment of ‘Oh, I’m okay!’ But it escalated so quickly. Within a week I was buying so many bottles I sounded like a wind chime walking down the street.

Recently, Robin Williams checked into rehab just for “maintenance” purposes.

The Huffington Post reported that Robin Williams’ love life had really taken its toll on his wallet. Williams revealed:

The movies are good, but a lot of times they don’t even have distribution. There are bills to pay. My life has downsized, in a good way. I’m selling the ranch up in Napa. I just can’t afford it anymore. … Well, not all. Lost enough. Divorce is expensive. I used to joke they were going to call it ‘all the money,’ but they changed it to ‘alimony.’ It’s ripping your heart out through your wallet. Are things good with my exes? Yes. But do I need that lifestyle? No.

Williams lost millions in his divorce to Marsha. It was Marsha who pulled the trigger on the breakup, citing irreconcilable differences.

E.

It was depression. Alcohol and drugs were his own administered medication. He couldn’t escape the black slimy hole he sank into. The pain is so great, actually physical and mental pain, that no matter how much stuff you abuse it devours you. You can’t find joy in anything not even the people you love more than your life.

I think that’s a terrible message to send to the masses especially on this day of intense
sadness.
