Robin Williams' wife and his three kids are sadly in disagreement over the late comedian's estate.
In court papers filed in December in San Francisco Superior Court, Susan Schneider — Robin's third wife — says some of his personal items were taken from their Tiburon, Calif. home without her permission following his death on August 11, 2014.
Despite Robin's wishes for his children — Zak, 32, Zelda, 26, and Cody, 24 — to inherit all of his "clothing, jewelry, personal photos taken prior to his marriage to [Susan]... memorabilia and awards in the entertainment industry," Susan, 50, is now claiming she is entitled to these items.

Lawyers for the Williams' kids say they are "heartbroken" that Susan has "acted against [Robin's] wishes by challenging the plans he so carefully made for his estate," according to 'The Associated Press.'

The children also stated they believe their stepmother is "adding insult to a terrible injury" by trying to change their father's trust agreement and take ownership of his personal belongings.

The dispute is reportedly revolving around two homes Robin owned at the time of his death — one in Napa, Calif. and one in Tiburon, Calif. with the latter being valued at $7 million. The trust, which the actor most recently amended in 2010 before he married Susan in October 2011, grants her the Tiburon residence and its contents upon his death.
Susan is now petitioning the court to further clarify the trust's definition of "memorabilia," saying it should pertain only to items depicting him or relating to his fame. She is also asking that Robin's watches shouldn't be included among the jewelry given to the kids.
