Robin Williams' longtime publicist has said that the late actor was not involved in any financial troubles that may have led to the actor's apparent suicide.

Williams' publicist Mara Buxbaum asserted that the Mrs Doubtfire actor had no financial problems and they should be blessed to have actor's financial status, Contactmusic reported.

According to Buxbaum, Williams frequently said things "in jest" which did not translate in print, and the comedian took on the TV gig because of show creator David E Kelley and the material, and not to earn more money.

According to Forbes magazine, Williams' net worth was an estimated $50 million.

Meanwhile, the late acting legend will be honored during a special segment at Emmy Awards, it has been revealed.

DonMischer, executive producer of Emmy Awards told People Magazine that plans for the 'In Memoriam' section were in discussion and they were working to give Williams the proper and meaningful remembrance he so well deserved.

The 'In Memoriam' section of the ceremony paid tribute to Hollywood stars and respected members of the film industry who died over the previous year.
