Frances Bean Cobain, daughter of the late Kurt Cobain, has tweeted a message of support for Zelda Williams, whose father Robin Williams committed suicide this week, NME reports.

Taking to Twitter, Frances posted, "You have such an incredibly beautiful soul. I love you but you already knew that. Whenever wherever u need me, I'll be there." The tweet has since been removed.

Significant members of the music world have also posted messages of condolence on the social media site since Williams' death on Monday morning (August 11).

Liam Gallagher, Rihanna, Ringo Star, Tom Morello, Robb Flynn and Ozzy Osbourne were among those to pay their respects, while a host of Hollywood figures have also come out in praise of the "Good Will Hunting" and "Jumanji" star.

As reported, the actor died aged 63 from at his California home.

A statement made by the assistant chief deputy coroner of Marin County revealed the cause of death to be "suicide due to asphyxia" and advised "a comprehensive investigation must be completed before a final determination is made."

Confirming the news in a statement, Williams' publicist said: "Robin Williams passed away this morning. He has been battling severe depression of late. This is a tragic and sudden loss. The family respectfully asks for their privacy as they grieve during this very difficult time."

    Frances is such a cool person.

    Thankfully she didn't take after her mother.

    My thoughts exactly. Seems she got her compassion from her father...and thank the universe for that!

    Wow you people are lame. Francis was like what??? 1 or 2 when her dad died. She had no clue what was going on at the time. Zelda is totally aware and understanding of what is unfolding before her eyes. No wonder Francis deleted that dumb ass tweet. What a bitch. These are completely different circumstances

    I know, right? God, how dare she be a thoughtful person and show sympathy and compassion for another human being who's lost someone very dear to her? What a bitch.

    Yeah really. I mean she cares sooooo much. She feels sooooo much sympathy for her.... There is no way she could have possibly called her, set up a meeting with her, text her, sent an email. Nah, you don't really care unless you post it on a social media site then delete it.

    Looks like Frances is the complete opposite of her crazy crack addicted mother. Also, kudos to Robin Williams for naming his daughter Zelda!!

    His son actually suggested it, but they loved it, because Robin Williams was a huge Legend of Zelda fan. It hurts to have to say "was" a huge Zelda fan.

    Still can't believe he's gone. What a tragedy and horrible loss. But he gets tons more points for being a Legend Of Zelda fan! That's my all time favorite game franchise.

    Does it seem that a disproportionate amount of comedians--who enrich our lives with happiness--are depressed people?

    when I was a kid, we had the Good Morning, Vietnam soundtrack on tape. My sister and I used to listen to that every f--king day. Robin Williams was my entire childhood and I grew to love him even more in adulthood. F--k this, man. I've never felt this hollow before.

    Yeah it's the Paggliacci concept. The funniest and most entertaining people I know have a lot of inner demons. You need to see the world in a very straight forward and honest way to make people laugh. This is an interesting read into the concept of humor and why comedians who are depressed and existential can access it so precisely http://plato.stanford.edu/entries/humor/

    My Dad and I were discussing this the morning after Robin passed away, we both came to the conclusion that comedy is a coping mechanism for some people. The other guys like Black Mustangs and matteo cubano have linked some really good articles.

    What a lovely gesture by Frances Bean. If anyone knows what Zelda is going through, she does!
