This will be a touchy subject because of how talented of a person Robin Williams was. I’ve seen many of his movies and although many of them weren’t my cup of tea, he has undeniable range with all of his roles. Clearly he was a very creative and talented person who had a gift.
With that said.. I think there is much more to this suicide than the media or anyone else wants to discuss. I think this suicide has a lot to do with many of the issues I discuss on this blog. Robin Williams obviously had some medical issues including some form of mental disability but, in my opinion, there is a root cause for it. He had been through two divorces, has lost MILLIONS of dollars (estimated at least $30 million has gone to his ex wives), and he was put in a position where he will be working the rest of his life to provide for other people. It’s one thing to lose half of your s~~~ in a divorce when you’re 30 or 40 and don’t have much to lose. Can you imagine going through this when you’re in your 60’s.. after you had a career which landed you over $100 million dollars and you have to pay over a third of it to your bitch of an ex wife?
Let’s make one thing clear.. I do not condone suicide. It is one of the most selfish and pathetic things I think any man can ever do. With that said, knowing his situation, it’s hard not to understand why he believed that suicide was the only way out. He was backed into a corner financially having to pay child support and alimony which left him a hole he would never get out of. Couple that with an ongoing mental condition and you’ve got a recipe for a man who was shoved into depression by family courts and took a drastic measure.
We have a court system who ordered a man to pay millions of dollars to keep up a lifestyle for his ex-wife and kids in which HE gave them the access to! His ex-wife would have NEVER known what it’s like to live that type of lifestyle if it weren’t for him. What does he get out of the deal? He has to sell his most prized possession (a ranch in California) and severe depression which eventually led to his demise. This is just another example of what marriage will get you. You are signing a contract that guarantees a worse lifestyle if things don’t work out, EVEN if you have an abundance of resources.
This situation also proves that even if you have resources, the laws are completely stacked against you as a man. Think about the type of legal representation Robin Williams would have been able to afford. All of this legal help, and he still got f~~~ed out of basically everything he worked for. Essentially, he spent his entire life working to pay for his two ex-wives and his kids to live a lavish lifestyle. That may sound noble to some people, but it sounds ridiculous to me.
Men.. Please learn the laws that pertain to marriage and having kids. You get into these situations thinking with your dick and have the impression that the “one” you have is so much different. News flash fellas, she isn’t. Women are all biologically the same and will react similar in MOST of these situations. In the end, you will get f~~~ed over if things go wrong.. Not only by her, but by the bulls~~~ legal system we have in place.2014-08-18 at 5:15 PM#2343+7
Interesting. I never knew he was divorced twice, I don’t follow celebrities, but I can see the alimony being a reason. I can also see how the media would cover it up because they want to protect women. Us men should be putting our money in separate secret accounts and not tell anyone about the money to protect ourselves.2014-08-23 at 1:29 AM#2471+5
Here are the some of the facts about Robbin Williams alimony payments he was required to pay.

Interesting i made the same exact assertion when the guy died.
Was insulted, told i was a psycho and disrepectful.
I still believe alimony is a huge part of what drove him there.2014-10-24 at 12:48 AM#5658+5
I am Filmmaker. I was shocked about Robin Williams sudden death. I understood why Robin Williams had to do what he did. I looked into this matter in detail. I agree with what I read in this post, except the sentence about “I do not condone suicide. It is one of the most selfish and pathetic things I think any man can ever do.” To be honest, I was very very close to committing suicide because of my deep heart break and complete business and financial loss due to my divorce. It was almost unbearable to lose every thing all at once. No one can ever be prepared for such a loss. I respectfully disagree that it’s about suicide being selfish and pathetic thing an man can ever do. When I was about to commit suicide I thought I would be hurting my parents, brothers and friends by making them sad and worried about me. I tried to hide every pain I was going through so they don’t go down with me into a deep depressing place. It took me almost five years to get back to my normal self, the whole time my family never knew the how close I was to committing suicide. They were under the impression that I am doing fine.
I don’t think it’s selfish to protect your family and friends for the deep pain I was feeling. They had nothing to do with my pain, it’s better they never knew about it. It was my pain and I had to recover on my own. I caused by marriage and divorce events in my life. I know committing suicide can be pain full for the family to deal with but deep depression creates a blind spot where being selfish or unselfish notion never occurs to a suicidal person. It’s like having a severe mental cancer that destroys rational thinking. I couldn’t think rationally when I was thinking suicide.
This just my opinion, I don’t think people who commit suicide are selfish and pathetic, they just hit a brick wall, they see no way out, they feel completely hopeless, they see no light at the end of the tunnel no matter how much we try to help them, at least that’s what I personally felt at that time. The day I was about to end my life, I was sure I will not see the sun light the next day but some reason I was frozen that night and could not commit suicide, A voice deep inside my heart suddenly spoke and said “stop don’t listen to that Ego voice that is telling you to kill yourself, don’t do it” Some reason I listen to my deep inner heart’s voice, here I am four years later writing about it for the first time. No one else knows about this because I did not want any one to feel any pain because of me. It’s up to you to decide if that is selfish or unselfish, I only did what I could in that deep dark day’s of my life. I sorry if I offended any one, that is not my intention and just sharing from my heart. Thank you for a great article, have a great day.

Looking back on it, I didn’t know too much about Robin Williams personal life however as time went by i did research and found out how much he owed in alimony and child support and alimony. The guy seriously had bitch problems, all these women took advantage of a wonderful funny man. Like most people of my generation (in our 30s or later) grew up watching Robin, sure he made a few lemon films but his over films that pertained to comedy are true classics.
It just goes to show you, no natter how rich or how poor you are, these bitches will try their damn-est to get you down and play the system. Truly sad what happened to him. and it also sucks the way Hollywood screwed him over as well.

He could have gotten surrogacy instead but 30 yrs ago it wasn’t that available2014-12-31 at 4:41 AM#12243+1
I wasn’t aware of Robin’s alimony issues, but I’m much less surprised by his suicide now than when I first heard about it. I don’t know wether I’d go so far as to say I condone it, but given the way the system treats men, especially successful ones, I will say that it’s predictable that some men will make this choice. Everyone has a limit for how much abuse they can take. Knowing what I know now, I’d say robin decided to go his own way after he already been trapped, cornered and gutted by the machine and chose to go his own way by the only mechanism left available to him. He paid an enormous price for it, but the saddest thing is that he may have seen the price as being worth it.
If the women on the receiving end of Robin’s money had any shame at all, or if there was any capacity in the system for review or reflection, I think I might be reading about this in MSM instead of on this site. But if women had any shame at all, what happened to Robin might not have happened at all and he’d still be with us. What I’ve learned from my own much more modest successes is that there is no limit to how deep their sense of entitlement goes. When they say they only want half, it’s not because that’s all they think they deserve. It’s just because that’s all they think they can get. Given the chance to take it all, they would. In Robin’s case, consider the 30 million dollar payoff. The real significance of that number is not that it was half of what he was worth. That’s the equation feminists would like everyone to focus on. The real significance of the 30 million dollar payout is that it means this is what that bitch assumed she was worth. It means that 10 million dollars was not enough to satisfy her. It means that 20 or 25 million dollars was not enough to satisfy her. Does anyone really think then, that she would have stopped at 30 million if she could have gotten more.
I’m sure if you ask, both she and a bunch of her feminist allies would give you all kinds of lame reasons why she ‘deserved’ that money. But all she really did is have sex with him and deliver a baby. These things are done by billions of other women around the world for a fraction of what she assumes she’s worth. I think it’s possible to be a 30 million dollar athlete, a 30 million dollar entertainer, or a 30 million dollar businessman. But there’s no way anyone is a 30 million dollar spouse, a 30 million dollar mother or a 30 million dollar lay… As tragic as his suicide was, a 30 million dollar robbery is more grounds for homicide than suicide. She should consider herself lucky he’s gone and she’s still here.

The irony of the funniest man of all time killing himself because of depression is a big joke. His last and final joke…

You need to watch on you tube – the tuth about Robin Williams – by Stefan Molyneux..
His mental problems were created by his bitch of a mother and her neglrct of him as a child, if you starve a child of affection it’ll f~~~ em up in later life…which it did. his father was also a 1950s blue pill c~~~ which didn’t help.
It has to be said that Molyneux has nothing to do with this website, he merely explains how succesive females rip out his heart through neglect, theft (alymony) or as he puts it all my money and with heartless cruelty. It is Robins who quotes next time I’ll just find someone I hate and give them a house.
This is explained at about the 30th minute but the whole article is worth watching to put everything into context..
This has happeed to me twice also, but I didn’t lose 35M just 600,000 GBP.
I now live in a friends small house in France on the Atlantic coast with virtually f~~~ all except my small yacht2015-03-12 at 12:04 PM#30420+1

YES YES YES thank you for making the same exact assertion. thank you for THE TRUTH.
Robin’s morning alarm clock goes off, he wakes up, “OK it’s time to swim.” But he’s two hundred feet under water, lungs empty, and if he swims the best he can, he’s NEVER going to reach the surface. NEVER.
So, how did the poor guy spell relief?

Picking up and running is always an option, of course. MGTOW at its core is about moving on, leaving behind a poison situation.
But you are right that having kids totally takes that option off the table. Same with suicide — I can’t seriously contemplate suicide as a dad.
Kids are a great way to get your life purpose focused on someone other than yourself, but they are also women’s greatest tool for manipulating GOOD men. That’s the tough thing — the better of a human being you are, the more vulnerable you are to a bad woman who wants to use your kids against you. You can always be a f~~~wad and say “take my kids, I don’t care, I’m outta here.” It’s the good guys who get an ass-pounding in the child support/alimony courts.
