Williams, 62, claims he has been left on the verge of bankruptcy after two costly divorces, and must now sell his $35 million estate just to pay his bills.
Talking of his return to television Robin Williams stated:
“The idea of having a steady job is appealing.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.”
Twice divorced Williams ended his first marriage in 1988 and his second in 2008.
“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,” Williams said.
But being twice divorced hasn’t stopped Robin Williams from going for that third marriage, Williams is currently married to graphic designer Susan Schneider whom he married in 2011.
Robin Williams will be making his first return to TV in 32 years.
The Oscar winning actor will star alongside Sarah Michelle Gellar in a new TV show called “The Crazy Ones” which will debut on September 26 on CBS at 9 p.m.
