Sup Travellers?! Robin Williams's depression caught the world off guard. Who would have thought that man who made us all smile was unhappy. I don't think that much of his fans knew that he was depressed before he committed suicide but there was so little that we knew about him in the first place. 

The Hollywood legend has been reportedly fighting a lot of demons lately. According to New York Times, Williams had been facing a lot of financial problems especially after his two pricey divorces over the years which gutted him of over $30 million.

He also attempted to sell his Napa estate for $29.9 million but no one has yet to buy it.

But his financial problems were just the beginning. His career has also been shaky lately. His CBS TV show, The Crazy Ones, was canceled after its first season this last year because of poor ratings. His TV show failure really took a toll on his mental state.

"Robin slipped into a deep depression. He felt embarrassed and humiliated that the show had been a failure. It was very hard for Robin to accept. Here he was in his sixties, and forced to take a role on television for the money. It’s just not where he thought he would be at this point in his life … Doing sequels was never Robin’s thing, and he wasn't that excited at having to reprise the role of Mrs. Doubtfire, which was scheduled to start filming later this year." A source told Radar Online.

In the past, he's spoken out about taking movie roles just for the money

"Sometimes you have to make a movie to make money…You know what you're getting into, totally. You know they're going to make it goofy. And that's OK."

As he grew older he just couldn't see the same kind of success he had back in the days. His money and his career were dwindling.

From an onlooker's perspective, things looked really great for him but it clearly wasn't. I really hope that he's at peace now. 

Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
