Just when she was starting to find love again…
While we imagine Michelle Williams is very careful choosing the men she brings home — for many reasons, including her daughter Matilda Ledger — could it be that dating her new boyfriend Dustin Yellin might not have been the best decision?
It is being reported that Dustin has quite the bit of baggage. With a past allegedly consisting of hard-partying and drugs, it seems there might even be a connection between the artist and Michelle’s famous former love Heath Ledger.
Apparently, Dustin used to host some intense parties at his New York loft. Back in February of 2000, he was even stabbed in the leg by Bijou Phillips during a soiree that got out of hand. At the time, he had explained:
“We were hanging out with friends. People were playing music. She picked up a kitchen knife and started chasing me with it. We were just horsing around, but it went too far. It was a moment of insanity.”
Two months after this incident — that landed Dustin in the hospital due to internal bleeding — a attendee of another party passed away due to a suspected heroin overdose just outside the artist’s loft the following morning.
And to top this all off, he was seen getting particularly close to Mary Kate Olsen in October, 2011 at the NYAA Take Home a Nude Benefit. Mary Kate was the first person to receive word of Heath’s death after his masseuse had found him in his NYC home.
Though Dustin has admitted to drug use, we’ll admit the connections here are a bit of a stretch. What’s more, we doubt Michelle would ever do anything other than put her daughter’s best interest first.
Then again, you never know…
