A depressed Robin Williams had money problems before his suicide on Monday -- reportedly by hanging -- and was frustrated over having to take parts just for the money, according to RadarOnline.
A family friend, who reportedly spoke with Williams recently, told the website the 63-year-old "Good Morning Vietnam" actor was upset he had to work so much to ensure his family's financial security, especially after two pricey divorces.
"All he could talk about (was) serious money troubles," the friend reportedly said. "There were clearly other issues going on and Robin sounded distant during the telephone conversation."
Marin County authorities will hold an 11 a.m. news conference. CBS News reports it heard a Marin County fire scanner audio in which an operator describes what happened in Williams' Tiburon home as an "apparent suicide attempt by hanging."
TMZ reports Williams didn't leave a suicide note.
Williams was also reportedly upset over doing a "Mrs. Doubtfire" sequel, which was supposed to begin filming later this year, the friend told RadarOnline.
"There was also frustration that Robin expressed at having to take television and movie roles he didn't want to take, but had to for the paycheck," the source said. "Doing sequels was never Robin's thing, and he wasn't that excited at having to reprise the role of Mrs. Doubtfire."
CBS canceled Williams' sitcom "The Crazy Ones" earlier this year after just one season. Williams -- a well documented alcoholic and drug addict -- returned to rehab in July.
Williams joked last year about losing so much money via two divorces.
"Well, not all," he told Parade magazine last September. "Lost enough. Divorce is expensive. I used to joke they were going to call it 'all the money,' but they changed it to alimony. It's ripping your heart out through your wallet."
A 911 call came in at 11:55 a.m. Monday from his home in Tiburon, and the Oscar-winning actor and comedian was pronounced dead just seven minutes later.
Williams, 63, was last seen alive Sunday night about 10 p.m.
Williams' set up trust funds for his three children, according to TMZ. The kids receive payments on their 21st, 25th and 30th birthdays.
