Apparently, Robin Williams was battling severe depression and the press is reporting that his death is the result of an apparent suicide.
His wife, Susan Schneider, released this statement:
“This morning I lost my husband and my best friend, while the world lost one of its most beloved artists and beautiful human beings,” she said in the statement. “On behalf of Robin’s family, we are asking for privacy during our time of profound grief.
