Michelle Williams: Please Respect Our Privacy

Michelle Williams: Please Respect Our Privacy

Michelle Williams has given her first statement since the death of her former companion Heath Ledger.

In a statement released by Heath‘s rep, Michelle said, “Please respect our need to grieve privately. My heart is broken. I am the mother of the most tender-hearted, high-spirited, beautiful little girl who is the spitting image of her father. All that I can cling to is his presence inside her that reveals itself every day. His family and I watch Matilda as she whispers to trees, hugs animals, and takes steps two at a time and we know that he is with us still. She will be brought up with the best memories of him.”

    She still loves him – they probably would have gotten back together if he had cleaned up. Very sad. I really enjoyed him as an actor and I think Michelle is really sweet.

    :( That is heartbreaking. I feel so bad for her and Heath’s family right now with all the speculation and a different rumor every five minutes. Matilda really is the spitting image of him.

    Holy crap, that i so sad. I can not even imagine having to see his name being smeared so intensely by the media. It would kill me if somebody came and badmouthed my boyfriend if he died, and… I get emotional just thinking about it.ø Stay strong, nothing but utter respect!

    Maybe websites like this will STOP “reporting” the nasty gossip that is going left and right. Let this family heal itself the best they can. There are times where you don’t have to post trash. No one has a gun to your head.

    so sweet.
    the paparazzi need to back off for a while.
    the poor woman just lost the father of her daughter, who she loved.
    they all need to respect her wishes to be alone

    yeah I said It Says:

    I don’t care for Michelle, I feel bad for his daughter..Heath seem to be over Michelle with Helena and Gemma Ward.

    The media shouldn’t bash a man in his death, but why does Heath get a pass when it’s okay to drag other dead celebs through the mud, they had family and friends just like Heath.

    What “pass” are you talking about?!?!?!? What are you trippin’ on?

    With that said, that was very touching and heartfelt. I’m still saddened over this…. RIP Heath…

    RIP to Brad Renfro who most recently passed as well.
