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!

    I wish the mags would just let Heath rest in peace. I think if he would have had a drug problem he would have been in the mags like Lindsey or Britney but he wasn't. The only thing that concerns me was on the People website the last time he talked to that one guy heath said he missed his girl and mentioned he didn't see her over the holidays…thats sad. I can him being alittle depressed about not seeing his baby girl. He wass a great actor that really through himself into his roles, and was amazing to watch on the screen. RIP!!

    This is embarrassing Perez. I thought you were going to show a little more respect for him than to run this trashiness. I luvs my gossip mags & sites, but i refuse to buy this magazine & i'm almost ashamed to have read this on your site. We don't know yet, stop speculating. He was a Wonderful actor, seemed to be a very caring father, and I'm sure a wonderful soul. Leave him be, let him rest in peace!!

    There have been some fairly convincing accounts in the UK press that he had a coke problem a few years back. And at least one groupie has come forward with a convincing account of him doing coke in London in January. Not sure how much he was doing recently but I assume he maybe had a relapse last year and Michelle threw him out. He certainly seemed to be in a strange place in that interview last November. Probably wouldn't have drugs at home if he had Matilda staying regularly. I am thinking the NYPD doesn't want to investigate as it might open a whole can of worms involving other celebs. When they have any doubt about cause of death, the NY police usually announce it was a cardiac arrest. There are too many unexplained deaths going round at present - what really killed Daniel Smith (Anna Nicole's son) for example or Ryan Shay in the NY Marathon? We do need to know about causes to avoid it happening again. Meanwhile it just shows how badly being a celebrity can damage your health.

    Thank the Lord there are some normal people on her like Harlin and Pepperpot. How can anyone not see, even in hindsight, that Heath had a drug problem? Forget about the numerous first hand stories, just take one look at recent pictures and some interviews. My friend, who was not overly familiar with Heath, thought he was in his late 40s! I feel terrible that Heath died, but it's time the media stops sweeping this shit under the rug. The industry also needs to start taking responsibilty. However, as someone else already said, I expect a cover up.

    This makes me sick. One day, when his little girl is old enough, she's going to look back on how her father's death was publicized and she's going to see all of this bullshit. Regardless as to how the man died, he's dead. He was human. He has a family and people who loved him who are mourning right now. Why can't they just be left alone right now?

    Here are the facts. He's been clean for more than a year. He complained even in the press about insomnia and not being able to sleep. He was being treated by a physician for anxiety and depression and he was given PRESCRIPTION drugs for all of these. He was suffering from pneumonia, flu and/or exhaustion, in London while he was shooting a movie. He had prescription antibiotics. He was supposed to go to Vancouver, but took a few days to go to NYC first, bcz he needed to rest. He was SICK. He flies home on Sunday after working all night in the cold and rain in London on Saturday. He feels like shit. He is dehydrated from being sick and from flying. He talks on the phone to people on Monday. He sets up meetings. He goes to the grocery. He crashes. He dies. This is a guy who was planning to direct his first movie. This is a guy who spent lots of quality time with his daughter. This was a guy who was tortured by health issues and emotional problems. He died. I will miss him. He was a good person. So many people who knew him loved him. No one who met him, or worked with him, or knew him has a bad thing to say. All these bad things are being said by unnamed sources and liars who never knew him. Fuck them all.

    I still find this hard to believe, unless we see someone in Heath's family, or Michelle herself say it I can't believe. But also.. I still think they should have some respect! He JUST passed away… respect for him and his family. Honestly. These negative rumors need to stop.

    hes dead.

    he can not be harmed with what is said about him now.

    we are supposed to respect for and care for one another while we are here together on earth.

    118

    When the truth is known about Heath Ledger, I believe it will show that he was using OxyContin, legal "heroin" , or Ritalin, legal cocaine. These drugs are chemically very similar to heroin and cocaine but you can get many MD's to prescribe them. They are cheaper than heroin or cocaine and they are "legal" to own.

    As the director of Novus Medical Detox, we see the results of addiction to prescription drugs and how it ruins lives.

    It is time that we face this issue or we are going to have an increasing number of people fall prey to these dangerous drugs.

    I don't think its right to say "heroin is the bad stuff. Once you go there, there's no turning back!" There is always a way out and it is through a recovery process. I should know, I WAS there. almost 10 years ago thank you. Keep the faith and God Bless Britney, she can make it too!

    Re: cambel – #20 Campbell — i COMPLETELY agree with you. sorry but to me, Heath has been looking and acting the part of a druggie for a while now. also fyi, the UK and Australian media outlets have been reporting he was a KNOWN heroin abuser ever since the news of his death first broke. just so sad he could not get it together, especially knowing he leaves a little girl behind. but all the more reason, i think, for the media to call attention to the dangers of drugs.

    Re: PEPPERPOT – totally agree also with #50 Pepperpot. Heath was aged way above his years and i also think it's tied to drug abuse. and agree again that people should know about his drug abuse so it can be a lesson for other stars in trouble. and yes, poor Mathilda.

    We all battle our demons, and like the title says" They kept it hidden well". Heath was a great actor, plain and simple. You never once read or heard about him not showing up for work or out on the town acting all strung out, like some celebs. He was always a true professional and now that he's gone, all these stories are coming out about him being a drug addict. You never really heard that stuff when he was alive. Once a tragedy strickes, all the rumors start floating around. Have some respect for his family and his little girl, and unless you have some hard evidence to prove your facts, stop printing this crap about him. He was a great actor and and a wonderful human being, and nothing is going to change that. His death was so tragic and has left so many of us heartbroken. You can print all the nasty crap you want about him, we miss him and love him no matter what!!

    I haven't said much on here regarding this, but how do you know that is true? YOU DON"T! I realize you are doing your job, I read your page early sometimes more than once, but coming from someone who had a problem, you can come back from things. The man has died, a child has lost her father, and parents have lost their child. Please stop reporting things that haven't been proven. It isn't fair to anyone. He isn't here to defend himself.

    Re: Devore

    It hurts his family and friends, which he wouldn't want. It hurts his memory. And there is no PROOF that any of the allegations are even true. Timing is everything and it's really crappy to wait until he's dead to start coming out of the woodwork with his "alleged" drug use. Nobody had anything to say about it until they realized they could make a buck off his death. Sick.

    Let the poor guy rest in piece He was a wonderful actor and is sadly missed by alot of people. Its funny how all this stuff is just coming out now that he's not here to defend himself. Everyone who ever worked with him has been quoted as saying what a professional he was, and what a great guy he was to work with. He didn't deserve to die. The world has lost an amazing person no matter what you say about him. Stop following all the other tabloids by printing rumors and stick to the facts!!

    He is not here to defend himself……….

    "A secret ultimately doesn't change the person you knew. Every facet of a diamond is real, but each is a different view, so don't let let all that you held dear about your loved one be negated by some other part of them. What you knew was real. What you found out was most likely real also. If it was negative, do your best to realize that they were merely mortal just as you are. Forgive them if you need to, and try to accept the parts of them you didn't know. Death can invade our privacy and deprive us of the chance to explain our actions. As hard as it may be to understand, the withholding of a secret is usually not about you. It is about your loved one's keeping a part of themself just for the sake of their own identity or maybe not feeling good about a part of their own life. Perhaps keeping the secret actually gave them pleasure. You may feel that you would have understood had you been given the chance. You may be angry that you weren't given the chance. That makes perfect sense, since death robs us of our chances at many things, including the chance to redeem ourselves if that was our intent."

    It is very very possible he was an addict and no one, other than those closest to him, would ever even know. This is so sad what these powerful drugs do to you–especially heroin. They will take anyone, rich or poor. My cousin lost complete control over her own life after years of heroin addiction; she lost all 3 of her children, her job, her apartment, everything. You don't love anyone as much as you love the dope; it's a feeling like that will be the only thing there for you in the end…nothing else becomes as important. I've watched her ruin her life more and more. I've watched her try and stop, actually do it, then go right back because she felt a piece of her was "missing". It's such a horrible, helpless feeling you experience as a loved one of an addict–my heart goes out to Michelle and Matilda. You are not alone.

    Re: Janee

    I cannot believe people- they keep saying they wish Perez would let him RIP- well fact is, as a celebrity your life is chosen to be in public eye and thus so is your death— if he wasnt so well known, we wouldnt care or talk about it, and he would be Resting in peace- but he is well known so people want to know the Whys and Hows- I cant stand a lot pf Perez;s stuff, but his updating the rumors and potential truths is reasonable in this scenario. While it may hurt Michelle etc, the fact is the drugs that are very rampant in Hollywood should be exposed so that we can combat the larger problem and not let it "RIP".

    The fact here is that hundreds of nightlife goers in NY do drugs- sometimes copiuous amounts- these people are not crack addicty AmyWinehouses, but real normal seeming lovelypeople who make it to work and function yet still DO DRUGS. Heath is someone, whom I know from firsthand NY knowledge, that went out and partied and DID drugs. Unfortunately for Heath he OD'D on whatever it is was abused that night. For those saying "Pneumonia, and Prescriotion" etc– here's a thought- LOOK IN YOUR CABINET- how many prescriptive drugs do you have- HE HAD TONS!!!!! I have Tylenol— hmmm0 what person needs 10 diff kinds of sleeping pills and anti-depressants? probably someone whom is abusing them– DUH!— The fact is that people can OD from ONE TIME people– it doesnt mean he was a scummy addict looking for the next fix, or a bad person, but rather someone whom had a VERY bad reaction from something we all know can kill us. Like any vice, when we keep getting away with it, we often feel untouchable- well this time he wasnt untouchable and this is the real RAW result of it. What we need is not to sweep it under the rug, but better education about drugs in a social context and the reality of what they can do beyond a fun night out partying.

    Welcome to REALITY folks.

    This is sad news. Having drug problems doesn't mean that he wasn't a fine human being, though, whatever the kind of drugs he used. It means he was sick with a problem called…"addiction."

    With all the talk and joking on drug addiction in the media, how is the "public" supposed to take recovery seriously? Perhaps we need to give young people hope. As far as the media goes, all we hear about is relapsers & stars "falling off the wagon." How about reporting on the stars who have MADE it through rehab and are working a progrAAm? Alcoholism & drug addiction is a disease & it is one that is never cured. I am an alcoholic - but I am a recovering alcoholic - and Heath's death should be a call to arms, in a way. A call to GET HELP. And the fact that all of these deaths revolve around mixing substances - from River Phoenix to Heath Ledger - someone needs to get the word out that you can only get so high before you inevitably fall.

    He is such the thespian, that the tabloids never talked about his addiction, as opposed to the Lindsays and Britneys, etc. out there. What he hell? Why? How come this seems like a shock to us? How come the truth came out NOW that he was a drug addict? How come he wasn't being followed around like Britney, etc?
    He was a great ACTOR, yet none of you cared about this big break-up, none of you cared that apparently, he was hooking up with every starlet out there that has had an addiction to something or an eating disorder. No one out there in paparazziville had a thiing to say about him until his unfortunate death. WOW.

But enough of all of this stuff going on and on about him. Just let his family mourn in peace and let him rest in peace. It was a tragic loss and people should remember him as a great actor and a good father. Not a drug addict.

    People can chill once we find out. People want to know and if we can make everything else in hollywood our business then why can't we be interested in this? I don't even believe anyone that says they didn't want to know about this at least initially. SOme people think it's obvious that he did drugs so they've moved on. Other people want to know for sure. Once we know, everyone will carry on. Celeb children are destined to find out this stuff eventually. Sad but true. I don't remember any death of a celebrity that wasnt covered just as much if not more so. IT'S INEVITABLE ANYTIME SOMEBODY DIES!

    Heath probably went heavy on heroin or cocaine before he came home that night. Either what he did was already enough to kill him or he pushed too far on some other less intense drug. It really is too bad no matter what actually happened. People desire being famous and don't realize the drawbacks of it. I'm surprised Ledger was into drugs though because he was doing a very good job staying out of the spotlight. Usually that can only help keep celebs out of trouble.

    For Christ's sake, can't this man REST in peace? It's really nice that all the mags are reporting from "pals" or "sources close to" and not from anyone with a NAME, or any credibility.
    It is Pathetic everyone wants to put their hand in the pot and get money for selling their "story", when they probably met Heath once, if at all. I think that people should not print ANY hurtful, unproven stories until an official toxicology report is out, you know the report that is from people who KNOW what they are talking about, no money grubbing assholes.
    And who gives a FLYING FUCK about his involvement with the Olsen twin???
    He is dead, his family is heartbroken and he leaves behind a 2 year old, and the focus turns to who he was possibly dating at the time??? Fucking disgusting.

    toxicology reports won't suggest anything about what he's done a year ago, so why do all of you keep saying "wait till the toxicology reports". in no way do i think the media is doing ledger a service, but the reality is brilliant minds and their work hide deeply sick people. no one on this site can pretend they know who the REAL Heath Ledger is. on the same token, however, it was clear he had issues, and it wasn't just "nervous habits". people don't fuck lindsay lohan and become a well known Manhattan party fixture because they're sober. thats the reality, so get over your "omg its all speculation", and admit he's fucking human, died because of a likely mistake and will still remain one of the best actors of our time.

    1) for the person who said "can't be heroin, there would have been track marks". No. you can smoke heroin, bang heroin and snort heroin.
    2) regarding the people who say they would have found drugs in his apartment. Not necessarily. If he had a child who he loved more than anything in the world and that child visited his home, he would have not had drugs in the house. Not uncommon, especially if there was suspicion that he was using he would have done everything he could to continue visitation.
    People who are actively using can fake good parenting (especially part time parents) for a good long while. There is the perception that they are passed out or shooting up all the time. there are many, many addicts who take enough to function and not withdraw - they live virtually normal lives.
    3) addiction is not up for judgement. It does not make you a good person or a bad person or weak or anything. it just makes you an addict. You can do good things or bad things while you are using. Clearly this is a good person who loved his child. Using does not make him bad, it just makes him an addict. that's all. He was a public figure which makes it 'of interest'.

    ok so if I say Heath was a drug user do I count as a "source" this is such bullshit. I'll believe he was an addict when the toxicology reports come out, until then I believe it was accidental or of natural causes. Heath was never in magazines for being a drug user so why now? This has got to be a lie.

    yes I do agree that Heath had been looking quite old lately. I mean compare him to Jake……..they look decades apart. Maybe he had a drug problem maybe he didn't. But what does it matter now? He is gone.

    Heath Ledger definitely for a fact i know he never went to rehab. heath was not only a person but he was almost my family. My father and his father have been best buddies since god knows when and I would have contact with him almost every week or so. Even though I am only 12 he was like a dad to me.
    Matilda and Michele where two very nice people and Heath never went to rehab.
    Perez Hilton and People magazine are jerks because of what the fuck they are saying but for a fact i know my best friend would never do that to his beloved Ex and daughter.
    if you are reading this i hope you know I mean all of this from my heart.
    May Heath Ledger rest in peace

    as heather says, don't report on speculation, report on the truth. and so many people dabble in drugs at some point or another in their life, celebrities and the rest of us, i'm sure YOU HAVE TOO, so just cause he may have done it a few times, doesn't make him an addict. people say things about everyone that isn't true and until you know for certain, you shouldn't say anything. you tried to have a polite stance about this, but you couldn't help yourself from these headlines. thats outrageously greedy.

    Plain and simple… I don't believe it. Leave him alone. He is gone. Five years from now, no one is going to talk about him anymore.
    Hollywood is a mushroom patch, they'll draw new actors and Heath will be forgotten.

    It is my choice of how I like to remember him, for me, he died of an incurable disease.
    Too young and too soon… that's all.

    this is just sad, he's dead and people are talking about his drug addictions..who cares??? let him rest in peace, there's so many people that are alive right now and are fighting the same problem, im from greenwich, CT, a rich ass town full of drugs, there's cocaine everywhere, heroin rite down the street but people dont do shit because we're not famous!!!!

    What's up with all this "shocking revelation" shit? Hell, people had been dropping hints in the world of gossip on his dope-loving ways for at least a couple of years. Just because it was photographed with the fervor of a new Britney meltdown doesn't make it a surprise.

    It's still really damn sad, however he died.

    I tried heroin a couple of times. I shot cocaine a couple of times. I didn't become an addict. In fact, I've become a successful businessman. Not everyone who tries drugs becomes an addict. I'm not even sure that it's even a majority. People can either handle it or they can't. Unfortunately, by the time you've figured out that you can't handle drugs, it's too late. I would advise those who aren't sure they can handle it - don't do it. If you are sure that you can handle it, give em a try. You're gonna do it regardless of what anyone says, including the law.

    The thing is…no-one will ever know what went on and what was said. I just think that at a time like this people need to respect the dead and not be wankers (a.k.a John Gibson) and try not to speculate on what really happened before his death.

    It doesn't really mattered HOW he died - what matters is that a beautiful young man, so talented and in his prime, was taken at such a young age. Condolences to family and friends. Rumours will surround this for years, as rumours ten to do. Why wasn't this clip released for people to see while he was still alive? Oh no, you say. It would ruin his career. But maybe, just maybe, a child would still have her father (albeit not mega rich), and 2 parents might still have a son. Maybe Michelle might still have her partner. - Don't sweep it under the carpet anymore - drugs are a killer!

    actually, i went to rehab for heroin and there is life after it — some people make it and some just dont. but i will say it was the hardest struggle and i battle cravings every day. i was one of the lucky ones who made it. at least hes resting in peace now.

    For all the celebraties people who live in rag and rich, roll money out on drugs that sourdding around causes by stress job they took by pushing to be famous phase. Paparazziville is chased women and left men behind without showing or telling.
    RAG & RICHES does used drugs as they are bored on these free days, use drugs to keep them awake and work their ass off to be famous. Let paparazziville know they need to chase men too. Need to dig out info., to tell whole world and give out detial what substance will kill people off. I know, its not easy road to admitted and willing to get help, as they dont have any sanity mind to see what consquences that got to them. Theres many other celebraity have kill off, Anna Nicole Smith and her son, Daneil that left Danielynn behind, River Phoniex, John Candy, Chris Faley, John Belish, and many more. Heath Ledgar had battle with substance and hidding by the world. He got a talent gift actor, pure good heart but substance eat him away into six feet deep. God rest him in peace!

    For you, Ashley who s on MK s side, you both had wealthy, money can buy to cover from the tabliod and wipe everything from the truth. NO ONE CANNOT HIDE THE SECRET..the truth will always came out to face it. Sorry it would harm everyone from the truth. DRUG ADDICTION STOLE THE APPRECANCE, UNWILLING, DENIAL AND LIP-CORNER. I'm addiction and always will be my disease forever. So does Mary Kate too as she had admission to treatment for drug! She must have relapse..thats the truth!

    En realidad es una gran lastina haber perdido un hombre tan joven, reconocido, gran actor, buen mozo, padre de familia, etc…
    Estaba construyendo un gran futuro…pero como todos sabemos el final que tiene uno cuando se topa con las drogas.
    Heath, siempre seras recordado con gran afecto y como Ennis del Mar.
    Mis condolencias a su familia desde Argentina.
    Peace-Paz.
