Heath Ledger Fathered Love Child?

Heath Ledger Fathered Love Child?

Members of Heath Ledger‘s family claim he may have secretly fathered a love child.

Australia’s Daily Telegraph reports the Aussie star was a 17-year-old schoolboy when he had an affair with an older woman.

The mother – in a relationship with another man at the time – is thought to have only learned she was pregnant after the affair with Heath ended.

Heath‘s uncle, Haydn Ledger, yesterday confirmed there was a “real possibility” his nephew had fathered a girl with the woman.

If it’s confirmed that Heath was the girl’s biological father, it could split his multi-million-dollar fortune between his two-year-old daughter Matilda Rose, his former partner Michelle Williams, and his secret love child.

people should not bring out these stories its disrespectful

Oh my god people! Leave him alone! Enough with it. He’s gone and it’s really tragic. His family needs their privacy, and they have hardly had any because of all these stories about him. Who cares if this is true. It’s not our place.

What is wrong with this Uncle? I’ve been reading he doesn’t get along with the family, so I take what he says with a grain of salt.

RIP Heath !

His uncle is delusional !!!
RIP. Heath.

mmmhmm now it’s all coming out of the woodwork.

I know tinseltown, i love him too!!!

why do sh$t like this always happen AFTER the fact? it’s so disheartening!

His uncles are a-holes! I think this story is complete bull! Leave the poor guy rest in peace!

Why didn’t the mom of his “love child” ever say anything before?

Only says something when she wants half of his fortune. What a loser.

WTF let him and his family be, this is just stupid
now im really angry

You know what, thank you Jared for delivering the latest news, but some news dont even deserve to get online. This one, about Heath Ledger Fathered Love Child… (I am not a fan of Heath) I find it disturbing that after his death ( and all the drama surrounding his fortune, if there exist one), the fact that Matilda Rose his daughter was not in his will but now they find a new baby that Heath had. My humble opinion is that Heath’s family is trying to cut short Michelle and Matilda from Heath’s money. Maybe I am wrong. Only if anybody is interested, there is a cute photo of Miley Cyrus as REDHEAD over at http://www.7gfb.com

That uncle does have a big mouth, doesn’t he? Even if the story is true why does he have to wash their dirty linen in public. Isn’ it the same who was dishing Heath’s dad about his ability to manage Heath’s heritage.

I don’t believe. They don’t want to share the money, so they came up with this story.

BETSY SMITH @ 03/30/2008 at 2:21 pm

FIRST IT WAS THE UNCLE AND THAN MICHELLES FATHER WHEN ARE WE GOING TO SEE THE MOTHER’S OF THESE CHILDREN COME OUT IN COURT AND TALK ABOUT IT.. IT IS NO ONES BUSINESS BUT THEIRS…
IT SOUNDS LIKE JEALOUSY .. IF HEATH FATHERED A CHILD OUT OF WED LOCK IT DOES NOT MEAN THAT THE CHILD COULD INHERIT MILLIONS OF DOLLARS… UNLESS THERE WAS A DNA TEST DONE BY THE MOTHER OF THE CHILD..IF HE WAS 17 AT THE TIME THE CHILD WOULD BE AROUND 10 YEARS OLD .. THE MOTHER WOULD OF COME OUT SOONER DEMANDING CHILD SUPPORT.. IT SOUNDS LIKE THE UNCLE SHOULD KEEP HIS BIG MOUTH SHUT.. AND LET THE CHILD’S MOTHER TAKE OVER…

Why does this stupid Uncle keep coming out with these rubbish empty stories?

it doesn’t surprise me that he dated an older women i knew that before but i really don’t believe this bull story i think they do that for MONEY shame on them that’s make me sick !!!!!!

one of heath’s quotes that’s disturbing………………

“I prefer to date older women because they don’t try to act older like younger girls but because they try to act younger.”

the source is:
http://www.westlord.com/heath-hedger/quotes.html

anyway i think it’s a shame to come up with those kinds of stories it’s
disrespectful

RIP HEATH I LOVE YOU YOU WERE SUCH A WONDERFUL HUMAN
BEING

JARED couldn’t you find a better picture of heath!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!?

“That uncle does have a big mouth, doesn’t he? Even if the story is true why does he have to wash their dirty linen in public. Isn’ it the same who was dishing Heath’s dad about his ability to manage Heath’s heritage.”

It is the same uncle! I think it’s a personal vendetta against Heath’s dad that’s why the uncles keep on bringing up cr*p like this. It’s beyond tasteless!

Heath,

you are missed.

There’s just some news that shouldn’t be talked about, and this is it. Heath Ledger died a very tragic death this year. I’m putting aside the fact that he was an actor. He was a person and he deserves to rest in peace. I find this disrespectful and truly sick that you would post about this, Jared. There’s so much I could say about this, but I don’t want to ramble on and on. Simple fact is, the man died, stop posting things about his past and just let him rest in peace. Nobody was bothered to figure this all out when he was alive, so why now? Just leave him alone.

And Jared, you posting this makes me not want to go on your site ever again.

wtf is wrong with the uncle!!
I´m telling ya, you can´t even trust your own family, YOUR GODDAMN FAMILY!!! the man is dead and can´t even rest in peace.

Agreed merissa, but their gossip sites and as long as we come to visit them their continue to exist, but justjared.com isn´t the worst, others like TMZ are.
and yeah.. if they didn´t bother to figure this when he was alive, so why now that his dead!? why!? god let him rest in peace already.

Ew.. what the hell…? Why would his uncle and this woman say anything, especially now? They could have said something when he was ALIVE and could defend himself and his money. Some people are such scum.

are you serious??
heath RIP

[☆F a m o u s☆] @ 03/30/2008 at 3:28 pm

jared, posting that picture is really uncool. this whole thread doesnt rock, dude is dead.. this is pointless.

iheartzdae!!!! @ 03/30/2008 at 3:42 pm

I love it how a story with lets say vanessa hudgens getting coffee gets more hits than a possible former actors love child

This is really sad, let the man rest in peace

Oh,Heath, miss you so much!
R.I.P. and leave him alone finally…

BETSY SMITH @ 03/30/2008 at 5:01 pm

WHY DOES HEATH HAVE TO SHARE THE MONEY WITH A CHILD OUT OF WEDLOCK… IF THE MONEY SAID THAT IT WAS HER
BOYFRIEND AT THE TIME… WHO IS THIS BOYFRIEND.. WHY NOT COME FORWARD AND SAY SOMETHING..HEATH DOES NOT HAVE
TO SHARE HIS MONEY WITH ANYONE.. IT WOULD BE SPLIT FIVE
WAYS HIS PARENTS HIS SISTER AND MATILDA ..

THIS CHILD IS NOT ENTITLED TO ANY OF HEATH’S MONEY WHAT SO EVER..

The Voice @ 03/30/2008 at 5:08 pm

If everybody would live under the Obedienc of God and the Scriptures, this wouldn’t have happened. Illicit sexual relations have consequences, and look what Heath has brought onto his family!

Romans 6:23 – For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

James 1:14-15 – But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death

canadagirl @ 03/30/2008 at 5:27 pm

jared, could you have chosen a more horrible picture of the guy? geesh.

oh my god. leave him alone. he is dead. did you really have to post this? that is so disrespectful.

It’s pretty obvious you’re what you’re trying to imply by using that picture. Your site and judgment seems to be going downhill.

Life is good @ 03/30/2008 at 6:42 pm

Just as everyne has started to pick up the pieces those uncles open their traps and they find something else to say… Why the hell don’t they just STFU. They obviously like the limelight and now are behaving like scums of earth. They should just go back under their rock and keep sulking about what happened 20 years ago.

Whether this true or not his uncle is a jerk for bringing this story up. I mean what is he trying to achieve? Let poor Heath RIP for God’s sake and stop these slanderous stories. It is in very poor taste, especially coming from a family member.

bullcrap
next please

From what I’ve been hearing the past month, the family hasn’t even had contact with this loser uncle for 20 years. And he says “it’s possible” a baby could exist? Either he knows or he doesn’t know that a baby had been born. He is just after publicity and money. As nuts as Heath was about little Matilda, if this baby really existed, then he would have already been a part of her life, too. Even at 17, I don’t believe he would have abandoned that baby … he had an old soul and seemed very responsible for as young as he was. I seriously doubt that there even is another baby. This pathetic uncle needs to crawl back into the wordwork where he came from. Just shows, doesn’t it, that blood is NOT thicker than water in this family’s case!!

Oh my god people! Leave him alone! Enough with it. He’s gone and it’s really tragic. His family needs their privacy, and they have hardly had any because of all these stories about him. Who cares if this is true. It’s not our place.

Oh puhleez, he’s dead. What we say he can’t hear. So stop the nonsense. Why worry for his family? They have to accept that he was a reckless guy who clearly didn’t much think about anyone but himself. (Didn’t even change his will when he had a child). A superb actor, but a lousy or weak person probably. The two are not mutually exclusive.

There’s something wrong with this so called Uncle, first accusing Heath’s Dad of taking all Heath’s inheritance and now , this one.
This Uncle is a looser !

Edgar, your last comment is awesome, i am glad that we agreed about something!!!

SofiaRocket @ 03/31/2008 at 7:18 am

Most probably this story is untrue but IF it is true, the child has the same rights as Matilda. It’s not the baby’s fault if his parents split before he was born. It’s not his fault that his mother is a simple woman and not a celebrity actress. Only cruel, ignorant and celebrity-obsessed jerks can deny this.

hang on..didnt i read somewhere that heath dies without changing his will and so, matilda and michelle are out in the cold, anyway, with his Australian family inheriting everything!!!so, am not sure you have your facts right there jared about michelle , Matilda and this supposed lovechild sharing the bounty…

RIP heath..

» Distorted girl. @ 03/31/2008 at 12:25 pm

Leave him alone!
He’s dead, stop!
Luv u Heath.

JUST LET HIM REST IN PEACE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Where does it state that a b*stard of anyone’s is entitled to a chunk of inheritance? Huh? Even if this was true—highly unlikely—why should anyone think they deserve anything? I don’t believe there is any set rule that states that said b*stard gets any of the money; the alleged “mother” is just another money-grubbing wh*re.
