Mary-Kate Olsen & Heath Ledger Were Dating

Mary-Kate Olsen and Heath Ledger were dating for three months before Heath‘s death, reports People.

Ledger, 28, and Mary-Kate, 21, first met summer 2006, when he was living at Hollywood’s Chateau Marmont.

Mary-Kate and Heath were casually dating for three months before Heath‘s death,” a source reveals. “They were hooking up, but neither were particularly interested in making it exclusive… They had a bond that was based on partying, and they had the same tastes in partying … like, in terms of where they liked to hang out in New York, what time they would want to go out. They just had the same sensibility.”

Earlier this week, New York Post and Daily News reported that the two were dating.

    dating mary-kate olsen? god, no wonder he killed himself

  • =/

    I thought he was dating Gemma Ward? Anyway, he didn’t kill himself – they don’t know what happened yet – so stop saying that.

  • giissie

    owww thats awfull:S poor mary-kate if they were dating

  • Choux

    Maybe this wouldn’t have happened had he been with Gemma Ward instead? Somethings we’ll never find out…

  • Not at all surprised

    Not surprised about the partying thing. I wonder how she’s going to feel when the toxicology report comes out in a couple of weeks. It’s very interesting that the masseuse called and spoke to M-K twice before 911. I think maybe there was some emergency clean-up duty going on before any outsiders were invited in.

    Some of these people aren’t too smart. They don’t think through things as most normal people do. I certainly wouldn’t grab someone’s cell phone to call whoever is on speed dial if I thought there was an emergency. The hired help probably realized he was dead and wanted to cover up anything illegal. Who better to call than another like-thinking celebrity.

    We’ll all know what kind of stuff these two characters (and probably more of their Hollywood friends) have been up to lately. Sadly, I thought that Heath has looked like he was on drugs for several months. He had that filthy/smelly addict look about him. Usually hygiene is one of the things that goes out the door when people start doing drugs. M-K has a similar look.

    It’s too bad that these people have everything, but throw it all away. It really says a lot about celebrities. So, again, it doesn’t surprise me.

    …this is all just sooo sad.

    NEW YORK (CNN) — Tests on a $20 bill found at the Lower Manhattan apartment where “Brokeback Mountain” actor Heath Ledger died yielded no drug residue, New York Deputy Police Commissioner Paul Browne said.

    The bill was collected to see whether it had been used to snort illegal drugs because of the way it was folded, New York Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said earlier.

    First off….she’s gross…and he was a father…who should have been home with his little girl….These Hollywood scumbags have no sense of family or obligation….it’s ME ME ME….

    O :

    eww thay do not make a cute couple,hes better off with michelle

  • d

    he was so so hot.

  • Didi

    he killed himself alright, this is MK where talking about. she’d drive anyone to suicide.

  • kimmy

    she probably dragged him down the “hollywood” road. shoulda thought of his little girl before doing all that shit.

  • Didi

    julia he was blowing the dragon. they only tested for powder

  • amber

    Hooking up and dating are NOT the same thing – people need to stop implying that. If he banged her a couple of times and did drugs with her….that’s one thing. No one has said that he’s taken her out anywhere, bought her anything, even a Happy Meal, so they were just sexing each other like lots of other horny, 20 somethings. Why is this news? Are they going to start reporting on all the women he’s slept with since Michelle? That’s a little insensitive at this time, don’t you think? The man’s dead, he can’t defend himself, so people need to stop all the speculation – leave it alone. His loved ones are trying to grieve for crying out loud.

  • Didi

    or chasing or sniffing or whatever its called

    I think a bigger issue is when you have problems sleeping like that, you have to get an expert. There was something very very wrong with a person who could not sleep on ambien. I get sleepy just watching the ambien commercial! Anyway, His physiology seemed to be very out of balance. Instead of giving him pills, his doctor should have sent him to a sleep disorder center. It sounds weird, but I know a vanderbilt doctor who had to sit under lights sometimes because his body’s sleep and wake cycles were off balance. I wish someone would have just suggested that he visit a sleep center-God bless Matilda and Michelle-I can say from experience-It’s gonna take a loooooooong time-


    oh for gods sake people, get over yourselves!

    Its a “source”, this is by no means true. this webpage is great, but it did also claim that he was dating Lindsay, Gemma and Helena Christensen.

    It’s amazing what people will try to did up just because the guy died. He should be remembered for his life, not his death.

    And bloody well wait until the coronary verdict before you start making assumptions about his cause of death, some people believe everything that they read, it’s so bloody NAIVE!

    Oh yeah Jared-I think you’d be a good president!

    I hate it when dumbfcuks like you spout off at the mouth when you dont know sh*t.

    Michelle and their daughter mathilda were in Sweden where Michelle was shooting a movie and Heath had just come back from London where he was shooting a movie.

    You dont know what his plans or his schedule looked like.

    Scumbags like you just love to hate on rich hollywood people because youre just jealous and envious.

    guys, don’t be so mean!!

    how sad

  • Didi

    i wish people would stop worshipping him, he’s just some dead junkie actor who was more interested in doing blaw with an anorexic tart then hanging with his daughter and making sure he was there to see her grow up. dying while you cross the street is called an ACCIDENT and UNFORTUNATE. a drug overdose (even if its prescription) is f*cking selfish stupidity beyond belief so i have no sympathy for him. his family i do have sympathy for because they didn’t ask for this. yes its very sad that he was a good actor whos not here anymore, but get over it people and leave his loved ones to do the mourning now, he was no mahatma gandhi, he was just some hollywood actor and theyre always dropping like flies from some drug related incident.

  • nicole m

    HE DIED! Why does it matter who the hell he was dating!?

  • Frenchy

    this is the third woman that I’ve read that Heath was “dating” The model Helena Cristiansen and an Austrailan actress. Now what’s the real story?

  • queenbutler

    That would explain why the house keeper or the masseur (one of the two I can’t remember which one) called her 1st and there was a delay in calling ambulance. Still wasn’t the right chose. I wonder if he would still be alive if they got help first, they must have panicked.

  • JustJared fan

    They don’t make a good couple. He was better off with Michelle Williams. Too bad they broke up. :(

  • giissie

    i totally agree with LEAVE HEATH ALONE! just get over yourselves people!!!
    i was a great actor and he deserves to be remembered for his great movies.

    She wasn’t an Australian actress, it was an Aussie SUPERMODEL Gemma Ward.

    i don’t believe it!

    and nice way to honor him! Bastards.

    Hey Malibumon…

    My theory is that there have been so many stories about people acting strange and confused while on Ambien that somehow while on that he took an excess of the other drugs because he got confused about whether he took them to begin with. This happens a lot. So many people do things on Ambien then can’t remember. Remember an incident with John Stamos? The youtube clip went around the world. he had some crazy interview where he was acting strange and telling someone they had a small ppenis, on tv no less. People thought he was on the other kind of drugs but he said he was on Ambien. he did the interview while on the stuff instead of sleeping.

  • Didi

    he died around 1pm based on lividity, coroner said so he was long gone by the time they came probably. she rang MK to clean the situation up which means the guards came to pick up the pills from the floor etc and put them back in the boxes. something about this is definitely shifty.

  • Susan

    I wish people would just let this man rest in piece.

  • Anon

    Another new low for People. Jeez, the body’s barely cold and they’re out there scraping the gutter for ‘news’. Who cares?

    And Didi – may you never have someone you care about die young, no matter what the circumstances. At the rate you’re going, it’s possible no one will mourn you either. And it’s easy to be a p***k with the anonymity of the internet – you’re proof of it. Your parents must be so proud.

    Oh, and it’s called CAPS LOCK. Use it.

    whaaaaaaaat??? poorr marykatee. iliked that couplee:(

    Criminy. I hate publicists. Just call a spade a spade – they were fcuk buddies. Everybody knows the Olsen twins are just as big of sk@nks as Hohan and Paris. The man’s dead. Quit trying to pretty up the press release to keep MK Olsen’s tweener fans who don’t know she’s a big ho from finding out that she’s a big ho. HL was “dating” about 6 different women, so just cut out the BS – he was a manho. Big whoop. Just stop all the damned muckraking. The man is dead – the media needs to quit picking his life apart looking for “exclusives”.

  • Helena

    She must be crushed!

    ew she looks like a frog.

    I just read the People story myself and ITA – a new low for People. To compound matters they also have the gossipiest story on Eddie Murphy’s 5-minute marriage that I’ve ever seen in 30+ years that People has been around. The story on HL’s death was jarring because while they talked about what a good guy he was and how well liked and admired he was as an actor, they also went to great lengths to emphasis that he was prone to “excessive” behavior and his partying was out of control. And by “partying” I mean booze and drugs. That’s why the “revelation” that he was “dating” MK Olsen is so funny. All those little tween Olsen fans who think they’re still the little cherubs from tv are gonna get an eyeful if the media keeps digging up the dirt on HL’s death. Over all, though, from cover to cover this week’s People could easily have been Janice Min’s finest day’s work ever.

  • Didi

    anon with an anonymous name, I dont have parents, they died in a very unfortunate and violent sheep raping incident in the scottish highlands. so thank you for reminding me. I can pretty much gather from your vitriolic message that you have no heart, and I bet YOU have never lost a loved one before. How can you be so callous?

    i only use caps when I am engaging in anti-social behaviour due to my turbulent upbringing.

  • Anon

    Don’t worry, Didi. The writer’s strike will be over soon and you can go back to work on that pitch for America’s Funniest Home Videos 2008. Pity you won’t have the time to hang around here anymore.

  • jmo

    Poor girl. She’ll be blamed by the nut jobs that troll the internet for killing him. Why don’t people wait till the facts come together. You have been reading day in and day out that it was 1 call then it was 2 now it’s four. They should just keep this info to themselves instead of leaking it piece by piece. All this does is insult those Heath cared for. He’s probably rolling in his grave that even in death he can’t find privacy and respect for his loves ones.
