Today we are remembering Robin Williams and his legacy… Meanwhile the L.A. Clippers get a new owner, Kim, Khloe, Kourtney and Kendall all throw tantrums, while a pop icon takes the Ice Bucket Challenge. This and more in today’s Dirty Laundry, presented by Harte Nissan and Harte Infiniti.
Robin Williams committed suicide by hanging himself inside his home yesterday and his personal assistant is the one who found him. During today’s press conference it was revealed that Robin Williams tried to slit his wrist with a pocket knife but when that suicide attempt failed he hung himself with a belt… and the coroner also said: we “will not discuss the note.” Other reports claims there wasn’t a note left. Robin had been struggling with a deep depression and went to rehab last month but sources claim he was too far gone at that point.
A friend claims that he was also having money problems and he was humiliated after his show The Crazy Ones was cancelled in May. He does have four movies coming out and they were planning a sequel to Mrs. Doubfire.
He leaves behind a wife (this was his third marriage) and three children… 22-year-old Cody, 25-year-old Zelda and 31-year-old Zachary. Robin had a three part trust fund set up for all three kids.
Sarah Michelle Gellar starred with him on The Crazy Ones and she told People that he “…was the Father I had always dreamed of having.”
Oscar nominee Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty) revealed that Robin made it possible for her to attend college at New York’s Juilliard School. “Robin Williams changed my life,” she wrote. “He was a great actor and a generous person. Through a scholarship he funded, he made it possible for me to graduate college. His generous spirit will forever inspire me to support others as he supported me. He will forever be missed.”
The Rock’s mom, Ata Maivia-Johnson, told TMZ: “As much as I’d like to lay the Samoan smackdown on the drunk driver that crashed into us, I’ve already forgiven her.” She also is happy she was driving a huge Escalade when she was hit head on.
Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer is now the owner of the Los Angeles Clippers. Donald Sterling had tried to stop the sale of the team but his wife Shelly completed the deal for $2 BILLION!!!!
Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian are REFUSING to film season 10 of their reality show in October until the person stealing their money and jewelry is caught…. They think it’s an inside job and want producers to force the crew to take lie detector tests. $250,000 in jewelry went missing at Khloe’s house, then $50,000 and $4,000 from Kourtney.
Kendall Jenner was out having lunch with her friend Hailey Baldwin (Stephen Baldwin’s daughter)… she got mad that the restaurant wouldn’t serve her alcohol (she’s 18) so she got up and left and didn’t pay her bill of $60! The waitress went after her and Kendall laughed and threw the money at her and walked away.
Kings of Leon drummer Nathan Followill was injured in a bus accident over the weekend. “The band was en route to their hotel after a show in Boston when a pedestrian jumped in front of their tour bus, causing it to stop short,” the post reads. “Nathan is being treated for broken ribs, but is doing well.”
