‘Not in financial distress’

12 Aug, 2014

People close to Williams deny tabloid reports that he was suffering from money worries before his death. Charles J. Biederman, a Los Angeles lawyer who represented Williams in entertainment dealings, on reports of acute financial distress:

No, no, he was doing fine.

Film producer Stanley Wilson, who attendedĀ Juilliard with Williams and remained close friends, acknowledges that money had been an issue in 2013, when Williams spoke in a Parade magazine interview about taking roles for a paycheck, but says that after reportedly earning up to $4 million for The Crazy Ones:

He was not broke. He got highly paid for the series, and he just did two movies.
