Tragic news, Robin Williams found dead in his California home Monday morning at the age of 63.

A coroner's early reports say it was a suicide caused by asphyxiation.

According to a rep for the actor...Williams was battling "severe depression."

His wife released a statement part of which read: "this morning, i lost my husband and my best friend, while the world lost one of its most beloved artists and beautiful human beings. I am utterly heartbroken."

Williams starred in TV shows, on broadway and in countless movies.

Tracy Morgan's lawyer says the "30 Rock" star is improving, but has a long recovery ahead.

He's still struggling. But he's a fighter.

Morgan suffered several cracked ribs and a severely broken leg when a Walmart truck driver, allegedly awake more than 24 hours, plowed his truck into Morgan's limo on the New Jersey turnpike.

The June accident left his close friend dead and several others injured.

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is thankful his family is alive.

He posted this pic of the serious car accident his mom and cousin were in last week.

The famed wrestler-turned-actor said a drunk driver hit them head on.

He writes: "...You realize the most important thing is my family lived thru this..."
