After a yearlong battle between Robin Williams’ three children and his widow, Susan Schneider, over the late comedian’s estate, a settlement was reached on Oct. 2, though no terms were disclosed.
Now, an insider exclusively reveals in the new issue of Closer Weekly all the treasures that his kids won the right to keep and details inside their negotiations.

Susan received one of Robin’s watches, a bicycle and the artwork in the home Robin willed to her as well as an additional $10,000 per month, the insider reveals to Closer Weekly. The new deal raises her allowance to $35,000 per month.
But the rest of Robin’s collection of bicycles, watches, comic books and other bric-a-brac went to the kids.

“Robin’s children got to keep everything he wanted them to have,” a family friend tells Closer. And according to the family friend, Robin’s presence was in the room during negotiations that day.
“He was really there,” the family friend tells Closer Weekly. “It sounds odd, but [his children] knew how to win. Words would start flying out if their mouths as if they were expert attorneys. It wasn’t them speaking.”
