Matilda Ledger Inherits Entire Estate
Matilda Ledger plays with her colorful umbrella as she strolls on a drizzly morning in New York City on Sunday.
Heath Ledger‘s family has decided to donate his entire estate to the late actor’s daughter, Matilda Rose, even though he signed a will leaving his fortune to his parents and sisters.
However, Ledger’s insurance company has refused to pay and has been sued in Los Angeles for not paying out $10 million in benefits to his 3-year-old daughter, after the company claimed the Dark Knight actor may have committed suicide, according to court papers.
“There was never any question about the fact that Heath’s estate would go to Matilda,” Ledger‘s dad, Kim said. “Never a question. We are very close to Michelle and Matilda.”
