When TV show The Crazy Ones was cancelled after one season, the late Robin Williams, who hanged himself at his home earlier this week, was reportedly left “devastated”.

As Mr Williams had said before the show debuted, “My face is all over the town (on billboards) and it’s all on my back.”

So, it was no wonder that the cancellation left him upset.

“It hit him hard,” said a source, adding that this was the reason why the iconic actor entered the Hazelden Addiction Treatment Center last month.

Also, he was increasingly depressed that he was older, and good roles for him were few and far between, said another source.
