They Kept It Hidden Well

| Filed under: DrugsAustraliasticHeath Ledger

cov_blog_6.jpg

During his all too short life, Heath Ledger battled addictions to alcohol and drugs, including cocaine, heroin and "a variety of pills," the new issue of Us Weekly is reporting.

Heath's demons were so powerful and harmful to his relationship with Michelle Williams that she tried to get him to enter rehab, says the mag.

In March 2006 – just weeks after the couple walked the Oscars red carpet and when daughter Matilda was only five months old – Williams drove Ledger to Promises Treatment Center in Malibu, California, the confidant tells Us Weekly.

Ledger refused to check in, instead swaying her with a pledge to clean up.

One of the issues that haunted Heath in his final days: two sources tell Us that Williams demanded Ledger be drug-tested before his visitations with Matilda.

Man, heroin is the bad stuff. Once you go there, there's no turning back!

    This makes me so frigging MAD! maybe he was and maybe he wasn't addicted to drugs but guess what I don't care. I know some people can fall into the traps of drugs but it doesn't make you a bad person and it just seems like everyone is trying to make him out to be a bad person. He is dead what is the point of dragging his name through the mud and cauase his loved ones more pain. Just let the guy rest and let the family deal with it. I know I didn't know him behind closed doors but I always thought of him as a good person, a great actor, and a good father and I will always remember him that way no matter what some stupid tabliod says!

    27

    who cares if he was.. i don't think the "media" should be previved to this information, who are we to know what he did in his personal life and whatever demons he was encountering! i think that the tabloids need to leave this alone. who cares about what he did, its the past its unchangeable right!? so let it !

  28. Mary-Kate's twin says – reply to this


    28

    I'm so sorry that this popular magazine has decided to publish these lies. It's not true that Heath was addicted to anything any more than any one else. Leave him and my sister alone!!! We're very busy working on our own version of the facts regarding Heath's passing. There's no reason to jump to conclusions when all will be revealed in due course. Don't you understand that being MKO's twin means that I too am implicated. Where can I go that people won't think I'm MKO or at least her sister? PEREZ….call me if you want any info.

  29. Anon says – reply to this


    29

    I don't believe any of this crap. Sorry. This is exactly what you expect from these terrible tabloid rags. A man dies unexpectedly. Oops. Drug addict. People should stop buying them and supporting them. Is this the kind of stuff his parents and his family should save for his daughter? Heath was with his daughter a lot. No way would he have been taking care of her if he was on drugs. And don't hand me the testing bullshit. It never happened. How disgusting and how low these rags are. Don't beleive it, Perez. You would have known. If Heath was such a wild ass, how come it is just coming out! We see paparazzi pictures and videos of guys at the clubs and being out partying all the time. Never Heath. I do not believe it. I think the rags are using his death to sell their magazines. They don't even have to prove it.
    They are having fun at the expense of all those who loved him.

    32

    He was such a talented actor. Its so sad that many people are just now recognizing him for that, people like perez who thought he was gross and wanted nothing to do with him until he became the center of the media. So talneted and so hot, but the saddest part is his daughter. When people make assumptions about suicide and watch clips of the media following around his family just think of how it must feel to be his daughter.

    DAMN Heath! He was such a talent, nice looking and well rounded guy. We all have our demons. Unfortunately Heath lose to he's which will eventually happen if you don't get a grip. So sad but expected ….IT'S HOLLYWOOD everyone does something.

    Good GAWD you sleazy skank, you guys just can't leave a dead body dead can you? You need work sooooooo bad that you all have to try and dig and dig until you THINK you find trash, what a skanky slice of shit you are for even entertaining this post by adding it to your site. Your no better then I thought, a true sleaze ball who is DESPERATE!!

    May he RIP, and to the family & friends Please don't let this garbage make you think any but what a wonder person Heath was.

  41. tina says – reply to this


    41

    like this is a hard thing to believe. most actors fall into drugs, even though they are good, decent people. it doesn't make him a bad person for having an addiction or a host of addictions. most people are addicted to something or other. now he can rest in peace.

  42. didn't see it comingt says – reply to this


    42

    how could such a cool and grounded guy be addicted to hard drugs such as heroin???? …. why did he need that? i just can't believe it. that's soooo sad!

  43. blablabla says – reply to this


    43

    He may very well have had addiction issues, but it seems a bit unlikely that he would have been capable of the prodigious output of his last months alive, acting at a level that astounded directors, if he was drugged out. You can't reach emotional truth through THAT haze.
    .
    Exhaustion, pneumonia, severe insomnia, and an unfortunate prescription drug interaction seem more likely (…the simplest explanation is usually the right one…). Boring, tragic, we'll see if it's true.
    .
    And lets PLEASE wait for the toxicology reports before continuing the gossip. I'd have enjoyed your blog much more Perez if in fact you used it to TRASH US Weekly instead of repeating their "sources" verbal spew.
    .
    …SOURCES!!!
    .
    …ALL "sources" should fucking burn in hell, along with those who quote them!!! Either have the courage to be associated with your comments or STFU

  44. Rhiannon says – reply to this


    44

    so i guess its those "sources" at it again saying they knew about his life. I find it funny how his real friends havent come out with all this crap! The ones after money always come out, now he cant defend himself!

  45. Jamie says – reply to this


    45

    I'm so tired of the speculations :(

    I don't see how anyone can write anything that is "truth" until 1) Michelle Williams comes out and says it herself or 2) the toxicology report comes back.
    The only truth here is that the world lost a very talented person and a young girl lost her father. It is so heartbreaking for everyone involved.

  46. Louise says – reply to this


    46

    I agree with everything that Mary K and Heather said. Tbh.

  47. Catherine says – reply to this


    47

    does anyone else think that this is bullshit? Who really knows what he was into or where the truth lies. These magazines just want their story. His "secret struggles" shouldn't even mater because there was no drugs in his apartment. I don't believe a lot of this bullshit.

  48. rikki says – reply to this


    48

    It's all about magazine sales. Or it's all about web hits. A man died and now everyones jumping on the bandwagon to drag his name through the mud for a few more dollars in his pocket.

  49. PEPPERPOT says – reply to this


    49

    The guy was totally strung out looking, he was only 28, he looked twenty years older! Handsome, but drugged out looking for sure. Stop with the excuses, the guy died from abusing his body, I don't need the autopsy report. You abuse your body with unlimited funds and supply and you die. End of story. These are poeple that if they have stress, go take off for a year, you have millions. Regular people have to deal with stress and still go to their miserable jobs. This is sad, but these people have so many choices we don't and they just wallow in this self pity. I hope this is a wake up call to the other young stars, go rest if your beat from the industry. Britney, go to Long Island and live in a beach house for a year and get it together, same for Lindsay, etc. They have a much better opportunity than most and piss it away. Everyone put down Dave Chappel for splitting to Africa when he got freaked out, but guess what, 50 million isn't any good to a dead person. He split, he regrouped and took care of himself. Responsible no, but to himself he stayed true and he's back and healthy. Dave Chappel understood he had to escape the heat and COULD. May Heath Ledger rest in peace, but I feel terrible for those who loved him. He should have taken better care of himself, he was a father.

    That's disgusting that media outlets would not even wait until the toxicology report came out. The terrible torment this is putting them through is truly unconsionable. What an alleged disagreement in 2006 have anything to do with his death in 2008, completely unecessary tortre of his surviving relatives. If Michelle Williams had any class she would be suing US Weekly TODAY…

    LEAVE HEATH LEDGER ALONE.

    STUPID FUCKFACES. SELL YOUR MAGAZINES OFF PRINTING VICIOUS LIES ABOUT DEAD PEOPLE, BUT I HOPE YOU BURN IN HELL.

  52. Kara says – reply to this


    52

    Maybe I'm taking this too personal for some reason.. but when you die do you want all of your skeletons to be viciously ripped out of your closet? I'm sure he kept his problems hidden for a reason - and don't we ALL have some sort of problems? Curiousity is only natural and I understand that but when does this all become an invasion of privacy? You can't express sadness and sympathy towards his family and smear his shit all over the place at the same time.

  53. L0RDX3NU says – reply to this


    53

    Whatever, he's probably alive still after faking his own death. He's probably smoking a fat blunt in the Australian outback, making crocodile and eggs for Terri Irwin. I'd fake my own death if every fag in America was chasing me.

    HEATH SHOULD HAVE NEVER BEEN PROMOTING HOMOSEXUALITY…THAT IS WHY GODS JUDGEMENT WAS ON HIM. HE WAS NOT HAPPY AND USED DRUGS TO FIND HAPPINESS. BEING GAY OR SUPPORTING GAYS WILL NEVER BRING HAPPINESS…ONLY DEATH….BURN IN HELL FAGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Why are you editing comments Perez? We don't like you speculating on Heaths death. Deal with it.

  56. now is time to ask mary kate questions god damn it ! says – reply to this


    56

    mary kate must be interviewed by the cops now.

    how close was she to heath ?
    when did she see him last ?
    did she know him to take drugs ?
    when was the last time she saw him take drugs?
    why was she called before 911?
    what did her security guys do when they went into his apt?
    by not interviewing her, the cover up conspiracy is made worst !
    things need to be known now!

    58

    Perez-
    Let me say that I am pleased that you had the good taste not to bother Heath's family and close friends." Your mother raised you right" as they say.It is deplorable that the press won't leave them alone to grieve. I can't imagine how Michelle is feeling let alone his parents.And now this drug speculation stuff is sickening to me. THE MAN IS GONE-ISN"T THAT BAD ENOUGH???

    Re: Mary K – completly agree! I wish people would stop reporting stuff like this until they know its true.
    I wont totally believe it until its officially confirmed and even then it wont change my opinion of him
    Perez, you are a good person, please only report stuff you know is complety fact x

  62. katie says – reply to this


    62

    I totally agree with the people who are saying "he's gone..let him be" He was with no doubt in my mind, my favorite actor-he was an excellent performer & for anyone to bash him on what kind of person he was;especially now that he is gone from this earth is just absolutley horrible! What do you think that his daughter when she is in her teen years is going to hear about her father..from these false accusations made about him–probabley not the greatest & that to me is sad. I hope that she can understand what a brilliant actor her daddy really was!

    RIP Heath

    I've seen numerous photos of him alone with his daughter and reports that she stayed with him when the mother was working or out of town. People close to him say he has been clean for well over a year. There were no illegal drugs found in his apartment and no indications that he had used any. Certainly they would see needle tracks during the preliminary examination if he was shooting. I say bull to this story. Probably based on old stories and information.

  70. Kat says – reply to this


    70

    Perez, heroin is evil but some people do get and still clean.

    I've been off the shit for about 10 years now. No cravings, no dreams, no regrets.

    A dear friend of mine has been off it for about 7 yrs, too. You've just got to want to get and stay clean.

    Please keep up your class with the Heath stuff…don't fall in with the classless hordes!

    I am risk of sounding morally wrong, and stupid, but SHUT UP. What he did isn't any of our business. Maybe he did, maybe he didn't. Maybe it broke her heart, maybe it didn't. MK was just his friend, he's been linked to a billion females, magazines just want to rake in the money,and with this story, i think that's pathetic and wrong. SOMEONE IS DEAD. It is not the end of the world to us, but it is to his baby and his old love and his family. RESPECT THEM, And stop reporting fabrications of the truth just to make a buck. It's terrible, I hope heath is resting and laughing at this incompetent morons, this is so sad. My thoughts will always be with all has loves, they've suffered a bad loss.

    And not that i really need to say it, but that "OPRAH"'s comment, is beyond hysterically moronic, just leave him and his family alone, are you seriously on anopenly-gay man's gossipc site BASHING homosexuality? Being "gay" has nothing todo with his death, a lot of people who believe so, need to learn something.

    I think he partied hard and got to a place where everything got out of hand due to the excessiveness of his lifestyle. I could see from his interviews recently that he couldn't keep still, seemed to be jumping out of his own skin. Heck, just by the prescription drugs he had everyone knows he had some issues going. He stated he couldn't sleep, and looked rough lately. I am sure his lifestyle had an impact on the breakup of Michelle and him. He was living on fast-forward.

  77. DreamBeliever says – reply to this


    77

    Hahaha…how stupid do you think we are? If he was a heroine addict the evidence would have been found in his loft.

    Until Michelle Williams confirms anything, I call bullfuckingshit.

    AND until a "source" is actually named, I call bullfuckingshit.

    AND until the toxicology reports come back next week, I call bullfucking shit.

    This guy was held in such high regard in the industry that IF he was all the things "sources" say he was, he would not have had any work.

    Some of you on here, including Perez, need to grow a fucking brain.

    OMG this is so ridiculous- i feel like a bunch of bumblef*ckers from the south are sitting on here yelling "it aint true" GUESS WHAT IT IS!! where theres smoke theres fire people, and being a NEW YORKER that lived on HIS BLOCK- it is WELL KNOWN FACT that he did LOTS AND LOTS OF DRUGS- like many NEw Yorkers, when he went to clubs he did drugs– just bc he wasnt a winehouse junkie doesnt mean he couldnt OD- here's a wakeup call people- he may have been a scial user or whatever, but it ONLY takes once to OD– doesnt make him a bad persn, but it's the truth— u all need to get ur head out f ur asses and stop screaming about toxicology reports and these being lies—- take it from someone who just a month ago saw him trashed at 2 pm in the afternoon weaving on my street.

    WAKE UP!

    82

    Who cares about this, and why does it have to be brought up !!!!
    The fact that he died is very sad, and a great loss to the Movie business!! That's it!! why do you and others have to keep dragging his name in the dirt, with a bunch of speculations, or stories that have been reported by other money hungry bastards. And even if they were true they don't change anything, which is that he was a seemingly very nice man that conducted himself with nothing but class and dignity in public, and was a damn good actor!! What he did or didn't do in his private life is none of anyone's business!!
    Let him rest in peace, and let his family grieve in piece without having to be exposed to all of this B.S.!!

    I knew it. Where there's smoke, there's fire. He was awesome and all and I loved him alot, but he was just a little too quirky and odd sometimes for a logical explanation. Now it all makes much, much more sense. What a shame, huh?? DON'T DO DRUGS!!!

    Re: OPRAH – I am sorry but I think you need an attitude adjustment. What is wrong with you?????? So what if he was in brokeback Mountain? He wasn't gay he was playing a role and who cares if the movie "promoted" gay people. You need to keep your ingnorant comments to yourself or go find a site better suited to your stupidy.
    I would also like to say….Yeah he may have had problems but everyone does he was only human. Who hasn't ever used drugs before??? I am sorry to say but most people have at least had a joint once in their lives. So maybe he did develop a drug problem becasue of the presure and lifestyle of Hollywood but maybe he didn't. I just think we would have seen SOME KIND OF PROOF before now. Oh yeah he showed up scruffy at places but so has Johnny Depp….it doesn't mean they were doped out. How many celebs have we seen party their asses off???? I have never seen anything like that from Heath. Anyway I say let sleeping dog lie. give it a rest already and let the man go in peace.

    I snatched this from an Australian blog, made me cry, and it is the most wonderful piece of work that I have ever read:

    Is it right to grieve for someone never known.
    Is it right to cry for someone never touched.
    Is it right to mourn for someone never kissed.
    Is it ok to feel sorrow for one not spoken to.
    Is it ok to feel loss for one never seen.
    Is it ok to be devastated for one taken from us.
    Heath has a smile that makes me smile.
    Heath has a voice that makes me listen.
    Heath has a heart that makes me love.
    For a smile I'll never see
    For a voice I'll never hear
    For a heart I'll never love.
    For a soul so pure
    And a beauty so perfect
    For a talent so rare.
    I'm grieving and crying
    I'm mourning, feel lost.
    A special heart, a good man
    A knight and a legend.
    Taken from us too early
    When will this pain of losing you heal.
    I'll miss you Heath.
    Rest in Peace Sweetheart.

    Heath isn't the first guy who has been brought down by the pussy. Thats why guys should just fuck em, don't get any women pregnant. Then dump them. Look at poor david spade. He is going to be on the hook for Millions. No wonder he is walking around in shock.

    Re: cambel – Absolutely! If only it worked that way - maybe this man's life could have been saved. The more I read about Owen Wilson, for example - this man has been ILL and SUFFERING for YEARS with depression, alcoholism and drug abuse. He's even dropped quite a few hints about feeling sad and depressed in interviews, but it's all about protecting the "image" - the same image that the media can't wait to tear down when the drugs finally DO consume them. I don't care about their money and their big houses. More power to them. What is upsetting is the ignored idea that these "celebs" are first and foremost human beings and that this culture of keeping things HIDDEN is LITERALLY killing the more vulnerable of them (whatever the reasons for their vulnerability might be). (BTW - That's one of the reasons I like Perez - he shows things as they are!)

    This is ridiculous. Everyone has their own demons…EVERYONE. And to try and smudge a persons name after they've died is the ultimate filth. A very real person is now dead and a very real loving family and friends are left behind to cope with their loss. Heath is gone, I am going to choose to remember him for the wonderful talent that he had and I really hope that people will have class and do the same.

    Looks like all the mags are trying to cash-in on all the drug rumors before the tox report comes back. Heath and his close friends seem pretty tight-lipped … I have a hard time believing they found someone close to Heath or Michelle that would talk to a magazine about their personal affairs. Their 'sources' are probably as fake as that guy who called into Fox news claiming to be Heath's dad.

    First of all, I was sorta fond of the idea that you weren't going to stoop to the low levels of most gossip media about Heath Ledger's death. "Reporting" on what a dirtrag like US Weekly is "reporting" is pathetic. You know it's a crock of shit.

    Second, while heroin is bad, very bad, there is recovery from the disease of addiction. The old lie of "once an addict, always an addict" is dead. We do recover. I've been there. I've been free from the bondage of addiction for over two years from both heroin and crack cocaine. Please don't perpetuate the old lie by saying there's no turning back.

    Re: OPRAH – Well, OPRAH - if we apply your so articulatey stated logic to things, I guess you can also look forward to BURNING IN HELL for "supporting fags"…..you are reading a blog written by one. Jesus loves you - even if you are an ignorant jackass.

    I'd say there's a very good chance this is true. I've ALWAYS thought this; He always had that strung-out, unhealthy junkie look to me… sallow, pock-marked, disheveled. Doesn't take away from his talent or character, of course, or the fact that he will be missed.

    Re: Anon – Ppl stop being so naive! Us Weekly is simply reporting what has been known by some in the industry for a while. Sorry, but I DO know for a fact that he was struggling with alcohol and other substances. And yes, that is why Michelle ended their relationship. Just because you don't WANT to believe it does not make it so. It's NOT dishonorable to anyone to know the truth!!! Maybe his truth will inspire someone who needs HELP to get it! Heath was a nice guy, but he did have his issues as we all do (mine just so happens not to be drugs). For the record: Their are MANY ppl who struggle with alcohol and drugs and they do it PRIVATELY.
