Digging Up Dirt

| Filed under: AustraliasticHeath Ledger

wenn1726702__opt1.jpg

This explosive article in the Sunday Mail claims that Michelle Williams broke up with Heath Ledger because of his drug abuse.

A member of the actor's "inner circle" claims that Heath was using heroin and cocaine, in addition to pills, and that his drug problem spiraled out of control recently because he thought his ex, Michelle, was gonna request full custody of their daughter, Matilda.

The article also offers up a theory on what led to Ledger's death.

According to his pal, "He was not the type to have killed himself. The way I hear it, he went out the night before, he was doing cocaine, he wasn't able to sleep, and the investigators think he woke up, didn't remember taking sleeping pills and then took what accidentally was an overdose."

We don't know what to make of it all.

Thankfully, the toxicology results will be in within the next few weeks and that should bring some closure to all.

    there was also an interview with an ex assistant of
    naomi campbell who spoke out in a lengthy interview about how she got cocaine for him and they all partyed all night……….

    but she didnt say exactly WHEN this was.
    maybe he cleaned up a bit after that but who knows if she is telling the truth.

    I think he just didn't fit into that world, in one of the films you posted before he looked just nervous and lost, not a drug addict. Well, I hope it's not true anyway.

    everyone should watch THE SOUP from Friday night and listen to what Joel McHale says at the very end of the show………the man is dead, why dig up all of this dirt now? He can't defend himself, it only hurts the people that he has left behind…..

    it was some sort of tragic organ default and thus natuaral causes .

    naomis ex assistant admitted that they all take lots of cocaine and xtc etc.

    if this is correct
    then there could defenately be something in
    why all those calls were made to mk olson to maybe do a CLEAN UP
    before the cops and emergency teams arrived .

    OK, see this is exactly the crap you shouldn't be doing Perez (Mario)….
    You don't know Jack Shit at this point and this is horrible crap to spread. If he were a big user wouldn't they have found something in his apartment. How about just cooling down until the officials give their toxicology report.
    This is just as poison and what John Gibson did. You're exactly the same kind of person as he is.

  34. MizzLizz says – reply to this


    34

    First…? Whether he was using and abusing illegal or prescription pills is really moot point now. He's gone and I think people should just let him R.I.P. Let's just remember him for the great actor that he was and how the industry's been robbed of one of its great talents.

    God almighty Perez…..you perpetrate the rumours yet you sit there and say you won't add to the family's or Michelle's grief. HE IS GONE ffs…let him rest in peace. What good does it do to post unsubstantiated GOSSIP? That's all you're doing. You probably get off on other's misfortunes. That's not only pathetic but ethically repugnant. Why don't you just sit back and wait for the toxicology reports to come in and for an official cause of death to be declared before you spew more of your vomitous assumptions?

    it has been speculated for a while that Heath had a bit of a drug problem… let's just hope it's not true and that his death was an accident. RIP.

  52. April says – reply to this


    52

    I agree with Dina.

    Joel McHale said "In the number of years that we've been on the air- he's never been on the show. So stop digging in the dirt, you weasels. He was a decent man and a decent actor."

    Just let it be.

    You shouldn't be spreading shit from the trash tabloids. Nobody knows what happened until we are told by the examiner. so STFU about it. Instead you should post a list of the tabloids that post lies and distortions — Oh, would you be on that list>>

  61. dina says – reply to this


    61

    SUCH A PAL HE HAS…the one who is giving all his SO CALLED secrets when he is dead and cant defend himself…hmmmm…I am sick of people who dont have respect for the dead ones…:((( And for his such a good pal there are some words : "God save me from my "friends", I will handel alone my enemies"
    I would like to wait for results of tests…and then to conclude not to speculate anymore:(
    R.I.P. HEATH U WILL LIVE FOREVER

    62

    When someone is dead, they can't clear the FALSE rumors. So NO ONE should believe , listen or take rumors. This person OBVIOUSLY just wanted money, no true friend would out someone like that , dead or alive. He deserves respect. So does his family.

  63. pam says – reply to this


    63

    no matter how he died, he was someone's son, father, brother and friend. my heart goes out to everyone that knew him. They are grieving, let them be. Having buried a son and a brother within a year(both totally unexpected) I can imagine the families pain, then hearing all this on top of it. Come on, leave it alone for awhile.

  64. Rhiannon says – reply to this

    Most of the articles written in the daily mail are lies! i dont believe this for one second! Someone else out there trying to make money out of his death. Its disgusting!

    74

    JUNKIE!!!! It's good that he's dead… one less junkie around that could drive drunk or drugged and hurt others. And all that crap from his family about his "wonderful soul"… what a bunch of shit… He was a JUNKIE, face it.
    BURN IN HELL, JUNKIE!

    78

    I hope this isn't true..so sad. I wish people would just drop this whole thing about him having a drug problem. I think the media is just trying to make this more than it is. It's hard to not be curious about Heath's death - he was so well liked and so young that it was very shocking. However, when false stories start spreading around it's so disrespectful, I feel sad for his family.

    i agree with something that joel mchale said on the soup last night.

    it went something like this…

    "in all the years of this program (the soup) we have never had a reason to talk about heath ledger. so stop searching for dirt about him. a good decent guy has passed."

    i think everybody needs to realize that and let an amazing actor, nice guy, and great dad just rest in peace. and let his family grieve without hearing all this bullshit all over the place.

    hmm what's wrong with the above quote from 'friend'?

    "quote" he wasn't able to sleep, and the investigators think he woke up, didn't remember taking sleeping pills and then took what accidentally was an overdose.""end quote"

    if he wasn't able to sleep, how could he wake up to take the pills?

  82. Stacey says – reply to this


    82

    I don't think so….until the tests come back and confirm his cause of death, the media is making up crap. Let the man be in peace. He lived his life quietly, let him rest in peace quietly.

  83. Don Paul says – reply to this


    83

    I thought you were the one saying to other media outlets to stop reporting negative stories about Heath?? What happened? From one fag to another you you should be above all of this!

    84

    WHO CARES ABOUT THIS DEAD FAG. HE WAS SO UGLY AND SNAGGLE LOOKING AND OBVIOUSLY HAD TO WEAR HAIR PIECES CUZ HIS CRACK SELF HAD NO HAIR AND HIS SKIN AND HIS FACE IS SO UGLY EVEN BEFORE HE DID DRUGS… YAWN… DIG A HOLE FOR HIM… I DON'TCARE.. PUT HIM IN THE GRAVE… IN A YEAR NO ONE WILL CARE… LIFE GOES ON… NEXT

    Shame on you, Perez. The Daily Mail is a notorious rag that rarely has a shred of truth. Do you really need to "Dig Up Dirt" now?? Let the man RIP. Wait for the official toxicology results. Surely there is a Britney story you can dig up instead….she can defend herself. Mr. Ledger cannot. It is not fair to Ms. Williams or their daughter.

  86. Kat says – reply to this

    What do you know, Perez spreading bullshit about something that isn't probably true!

    There is nothing worse for the male body than lrepeat and systematic lack of sleep. Your nervous system simply cannot handle it. You will eventually develop sleep apnea, and can literally die from reflux choking, heart failure, etc.. Add alchohol, let alone cocaine, or other stimulants to the mix, and you are a sure fire candidate for rock star death. There is nothing normal to indulging in even cigarettes and alchohol on a regular basis. Also, you can tell Heath worked out like a fiend. Strenuous exercise, a diet lacking basic animal fats and oils (he went shopping on the day of his death, with a bag full of mostly fruits and vegetables - again, healthy diet for an active male always includes meats and some good fats) your heart will pay the price. Long distance runners and endurance athletes that go on restrictive diets often develop heart issues. SLEEP, SLEEP, good, old fashioned, non-drug (nicotine and alchohol included) SLEEP, with regular aerobic exercise is the key to male health. Believe me, Im a former avid exerciser/alchoholic mild smoker, with bad diet and I almost killed myself. Pay attention, men. Take care of yourself. Anyone using sleeping pills for anything is flirting with death!

    Leave it alone. When the toxocology results come in then you can start. the poor guy hasn't even reached home yet, isn't in the ground and you people in Hollywood just dish dirt whether it be true or false. I think you are all compensating becuase he didn't let you into his life and his family won't let you in on his death. They won't allow it to become a media circus. Go hassle Britney or better yet Amie Winehouse, she's a real drug addict

    WHAT A CROCK OF BULLSHIT!!! People his TOX SCREEN prelim which includes coke and opiates came back too low to have killed a flea much less a human being. WHAT A BUNCH OF SAD FUCKING ASSHOLES trying to make Michelle feel like shit. It is going to turn out that he fucking died of the motherfuckin FLU. Thats right… Christopher Plummer has gone on record as saying that he was VERY sick when he went home to NY on break from shooting the movie in London. They were working in damp frigid temperatures. IT IS FLU SEASON. Couple that with exhaustion. HE DIED OF THE GODDAMNED FLU. It happens. STOP MAKING UP STORIES ABOUT THIS OBVIOUSLY SWEET, SMART AMAZING ACTOR!!!!! STOP!!

    97

    Just leave it be…He's passed on and there is nothing that anyone can do now…The rumors that swirl around his untimely death do nothing but demoralize his legacy and only hurt those who love him. I think as a society we need to respect him and his family and let them morn in peace and quiet instead of speculating whether or not he used drugs. He lived a private life despite the fact that he was a celebrity, yet with his death the media pounces all over him and picks him apart…I truly pray for his family and I hope that they will be able to come to terms with his untimely passing and that they will be able to ignore the negative press surrounding this horrible situation…

    What a tragic b!tch, that Rebecca White!

    I've never been a fan of Michelle, but "Heath was an Adonis and she was dowdy and not in his league - careerwise or looks-wise - and no one could understand why they got together."

    Are you kidding me? Even though it's absolutely of no importance, she was getting more beautiful every day, he went in the other direction, and Rebecca White must be a horribly jealous person… Seriously, giving an interview like that when he's dead and she's mourning… PATHETIC!!
