Oscar winning actor and comedian, Robin Williams is no more. He committed suicide in his Tiburon home in Northern California Sunday night and Hollywood stars have been reacting ever since. But did the actor protect his children's future in his will in case of his death?

According to Robin's 2009 trust, obtained by gossip site TMZ, the actor did protect his three kids - Cody (22), Zelda (25) and Zachary (31) - by creating a trust for each but he also had some conditions attached to that!

TMZ reports claim only 1/3 of the share will go to any of his children when each turned 21. When they turned 25 they got half of what remained and when they turned 30 they each got their full share.

However, the trust was not dependent on Robin's death and reports say 30 year old Zachary has received all his money, although Cody and Zelda have not been paid in full because of their ages.

There's been no confirmation yet as to how much

money was in the trust but Robin had a significant amount of money outside the trust and his current wife, Susan Schneider, will almost certainly receive a significant amount.

In addition, no one knows how much Robin was exactly worth but as far back as 2012, the Aladin actor was estimated around $130 million.  But sadly, in 2013 Robin did an interview saying he was on the verge of bankruptcy because of his 2 costly divorces.

He reportedly sold his $35 million estate to become solvent again.
