Robin Williams' widow gives emotional first interview since his death

Robin Williams' widow has given her first interview since his tragic death.

Susan Schneider, who married the actor in 2011, broke down in tears when she recalled the moment she discovered the 'Mrs Doubtfire' star - who was aged just 63 when he died - had killed himself at their home in California last year.

Speaking to ABC News' Amy Robach in an exclusive pre-recorded interview, set to air next month, she said: "I just screamed, 'Robin, what happened, what did you do?' "

The brunette beauty then went on to describe their three-year marriage as "the best love I ever dreamed of," before she was crippled with emotion when Amy asked her if Robin had been "spiralling out of control" prior to his sudden death.

The emotional interview will also feature never-seen-before home videos of the couple dancing at their wedding as well as photos taken throughout their relationship.

Meanwhile, not only has Susan had to come to terms with Robin's death but she's also been locked in a bitter legal battle with his three grown-up children Zachary, Zelda and Cody, whom he had from previous marriages, over his will.

However, the heartbroken family reached a settlement last month and Susan recently admitted she feels she can "finally grieve" in the home they once shared together.

The interview will air on 'Good Morning America' on Tuesday November 3 and later that evening on 'Nightline.'
