Robin Williams “Fell Off Wagon” Claim Slammed By Wife And Rep
“Robin Williams fell off the wagon during his reluctant and ill-fated return to series TV when he insisted on downing real booze during a shoot at the famed Spago restaurant last year,” begins a New York Post “exclusive.”
According to the tabloid, Williams was sober when he began taping the particular scene for his CBS show “The Crazy Ones” in May 2013, but while filming progressed inside the chic Beverly Hills eatery, “Robin insisted on a real drink,” says the paper’s source.
“No one had seen him drinking before this,” notes the Post’s source, adding, “One drink led to another, but it seemed to calm him down.”
While it’s true that William had past problems with alcohol, and had sought treatment, the paper’s claim about his boozing on the set of “The Crazy Ones” is simply untrue.
Williams’ widow Susan Schneider says, “Robin’s sobriety was intact.”
Additionally, Williams’ rep tells Gossip Cop, “So much of that story is false that I don’t know where to begin.”
