Marsha Garces, Robin Williams Former Wife: Net Worth Around $25 Million, Received Mansion and Assets in Divorce

Marsha Garces, one of Robin Williams ex-wives, has a net worth of about $25 million.

Garces, a Filipino-American, was a former nanny for Williams’ first child, Zachary Pym Williams. She later became his wife and bore him his two other children, Zelda Williams and Cody Williams.

Garces also helped him with his work, even being nominated for Outstanding Variety, Music or Comedy Special for Robin Williams: Live on Broadway along with others in 2003, according to IMDB.

Garces, who was born on June 18, 1956 in San Francisco, is also credited as a producer on Jakob the Liar and Mrs. Doubtfire and executive producer on Patch Adams.

She also served as assistant to Williams on Toys, Hook, The Fisher King, Dead Poets Society, and Good Morning, Vietnam.

Garces is currently worth about $25 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth, though the website isn’t clear about where its information comes from.

The blog does note that Garces was reportedly given $15-20 million in cash and assets in the divorce, and is currently listed as the owner of a mansion in the Sea Cliff neighborhood of San Francisco. Williams purchased the home in 1993 for $3 million. It’s currently valued at $15-$20 million by Zillow.

Williams’ financial wellbeing has come under scrutiny following his recent suicide. His divorce settlements were reported to cost him about $33 million altogether, and some attributed the settlements to money problems Williams complained about. 

But a source who was in regular contact with Williams recently told TMZ that the actor was not cash-strapped and lived the way he wanted to, adding “He always flew first class, took great vacations and lived in the house he loved.” 

Williams was selling his ranch in Napa Valley, but only because he didn’t like going there anymore because it was something Williams and Garces used to enjoy.

The source noted that Williams did complain over the years about “getting taken to the cleaners by his ex-wives.”
