Many people dream and fame and fortune, but sadly some stars succumb to pressures of the industry, their own demons and addictions. In extreme cases, this has resulted in the troubled celebrity taking his or her own life. Here are some stars who are confirmed to have or suspected of committing suicide and left us too soon.

1. Robin Williams

Robin Williams was one of the most beloved actors of all time, but he tragically took his life by hanging himself in August 2014. He was suffering from depression and had recently been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. His autopsy showed that he was suffering paranoia from an affliction called Lewy body dementia, which could have ultimately led to the suicide. His unique brand of energy is certainly missed.

Nirvana’s Kurt Cobain shocked the world when he ended his life in 1994 by taking a self inflicted gunshot to the head in April 1994. He is survived by his daughter Francis Bean. He had been struggling with both drug addiction and depression, and committed suicide after leaving a detox facility. What a loss.
