Robin Lehner Family
Robin Lehner family have had a complicated history of mental illness running for many years.
In his interview with ESPN, the goaltender said many of his close ones tried to commit suicide and had problems with alcoholism. In 2018, the hockey player suffered from a panic attack which resulted due to undiagnosed bipolar disorder and alcohol addiction.
As a kid growing up in Sweden, Robin would see several people suffering from mental illness and addiction come to his father, Michael's rehabilitation facilities. It was his dad who suggested he should try his hands at hockey at age 10.
Growing up the father-son relationship felt more like father-coach, and his mother, Veronica, would have to often calm things down between the two. Lehner also has a sister named Maja, but the two didn't grow up together as they have an age difference of fourteen years.
In 2012, the NHL player shared a photo of his mother and sister hugging each other as he captioned the post, "My awesome mom and sister."
In 2014, the goalie tied the knot with his partner of two years, Donya, the woman he credits for standing beside him during one of the most troublesome periods of his life. The couple met in Sweden and later shifted to the US with their two kids, Lennox and Zoe.
Currently, the Lehners have all been dragged into the bankruptcy scandal, with revelations being made that Michael ran a reptile farm with his son. The couple, Donay and Robin, filed for bankruptcy after having to owe multimillions of dollars to multiple creditors.
