article imageHeath Ledger's Will Leaves All To His Family

By KJ Mullins     Mar 9, 2008 in Entertainment
Heath Ledger drafted a will in 2003 before he became a father leaving everything to his parents and siblings. The will was filed in his homeland of Australia according to the New York Daily News.
Although Michelle Williams and daughter Matilda were not named in the will his father Kim made it clear that they would be taken care of.
"Matilda is our absolute priority and Michelle is an integral part of our family," Kim Ledger said in a statement released to People. "They will be taken care of and that's how Heath would want it to be."
Reps for Ledger also confirmed that Williams and 2 year old Matilda would be looked after. The documents were filed in Manhattan Surrogate's Court. At the time of his January 22, 2008 death Ledger has about $100,000 in banks accounts, his Toyota Prius and $20,000 in furniture. That is not the bulk though of his estate. The Brooklyn townhouse he shared with Williams and property holdings in Australia will add quite a chunk as well as trusts he had stashed away.
His family spent $39,000 on his memorial service at the Frank E. Campbell Funeral Home. His coffin alone cost $25,000.
Ledger's lawyer has requested that the documents be sealed to protect the family's privacy.
While the case...has generated extraordinary public interest, it has also, unfortunately, brought out the worst in human nature," Harvey Corn wrote in the filing, pointing out that one impostor posed as Ledger's father, Kim, and made calls to celebrities including John Travolta and Tom Cruise in his name.
Ledger passed away as the result of an accidental overdose of prescription medicine.
