Pneumonia has been ruled out as the cause of death of Heath Ledger.

Police discovered what they believe to be illegal drugs at his apartment.

The actor's daughter, Matilda, is on her way back to New York with mom Michelle Williams, who had been filming in Sweden and is said to be "in her own world" right now.

Ledger's ex-girlfriend, Naomi Watts, has cancelled all her media appearances. The Australian actress was at Sundance to promote a new film.

Production on Heath's most recent film, the Terri Gilliam-directed The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, has been shut down.

Warner Bros., who are releasing the next Batman movie with Ledger as the Joker, says, "The studio is stunned and devastated by this tragic news. The entertainment community has lost an enormous talent. Heath was a brilliant actor and an exceptional person. Our hearts go out to his family and friends."

And, model Helena Christensen has revealed to Women's Wear Daily: "I was on my way over to pay him a visit when I found out," she says. "I had just left him a message and heard his voice on the machine. He was such a special and genuine person, so extraordinarily talented because he was so raw and honest with his feelings. He was so full of life, so electric."

Sad. Still sad.

    I think heath liked to take it in the cornhole

  71. melinda says – reply to this


    71

    A concrete reason (if drugs were truly the cause of death), why anyone who takes this crap for 'recreation' why no-one with any sense should take drugs. It's the people who are left behind who suffer.

  72. joeyjojo says – reply to this


    72

    this is all so devastating. i'm really upset by this one. a beautiful man and a tortured soul. Where were all of these people when Heath really needed them? All of these so-called friends who are all so devastated from this loss. Did you not see the warning signs? You are all such "artists" and "in touch with people's feelings"-or maybe you are all so egotistical and selfish that you cannot see anyone else hurting or anything past your selfish selves. Whats emerging here is a guy who needed desperate help. All of these tears from these so called friends now is just another photo-op. I saw Lindsey living the life of Riley in Malibu this weekend. Did u stop and think, bitch, for a second, that your so-called friend was wallowing in his misery and needed some help? shame on you people.

    Basically I've had your page open all day so I can check it in between my classes because you're the only one updating about Heath Ledger so often and I appreciate it. This is so tragic… thanks for keeping us updated!

  80. trixiesmama87 says – reply to this


    80

    I still can't believe it, I always thought he was so normal and level headed. I guess that goes to show anyone can be caught up in depression/drugs and die at any moment. It's such a tragedy, he was an inspiration to many and he will be missed by his great number of fans. What a terrible loss.

    Oh, I forgot about his relationship with Naomi Watts…she was really into him. I thought they would get married and people were surprised when they broke up. They were a nice couple and split up very amicably.

    Naomi was probably torn up about his death too. Heath will be missed.

    88

    Williams is a no talent acress with marginal looks. Her best claim to fame was her attatchement to Heath Ledger. She has always been "in her own world" she dissed on her family and she dissed on him. Michelle Williams needs to just go away.

    This is really sad. I'm shocked. I work 2 blocks away from his apartment. He's on Broome and I'm on Prince. I saw all the cop cars on my way home last night.
    But Perezie my dear, I'm a little bummed you havn't posted that much on Brad Renfro. I was so sad when I heard he died last week. And all he got was an "RIP". I'd like to have more info on that. I really liked him.

    You stupid freaks. Would care to share your news source before you smear this wonderful actor. Not one REAL news source has mentioned illegal drugs or money rolled with white powder substances in it. There were legal perscription meds. found. Go back to bashing Britney why don't you. With your help maybe there really will a be suicide to report in the near future.
