Robin Williams was suffering from the early stages of Parkinson’s disease at the time of his death, his wife has said.
According to a BBC report, Susan Schneider said her husband had been sober but “not yet ready to share publicly” his struggles with Parkinson’s.
She added that he had also been suffering from anxiety and depression.
The 63-year-old actor was found dead in an apparent suicide in his home on Monday.
“It is our hope in the wake of Robin’s tragic passing, that others will find the strength to seek the care and support they need to treat whatever battles they are facing so they may feel less afraid,” Susan Schneider said, in a statement.
