Matilda Ledger Inherits Entire Estate

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.”

She is just a little sweet heart!!! She has her father’s “fashion sense” LOL!!! I am loving this sparkly, colorful “fairytale princess” look. With it being Halloween season, kids love to play dress up. I’m glad she is allowed to express her imagination and be a little kid. I am also glad Michelle is doing right by the Ledgers and letting Heath’s father and his Mother, Sally, stay close to MAtilda. She is all they will ever have of him. Insurance companies will do anything not to pay. They will even smear a dead man’s reputation to justify their greed.

She’s a very loved little girl. Hope the insurance company pays up. Seems they are trying to hold off on paying the insurance — CREEPS!!

Heath’s family did the right thing.

Gotta love the insurance companies. Grrr

I love her cute little ‘dress up’ dress. Sooo adorable!

She’s so lovely. Aww.

#13. Calling Matilda insignificant and not pretty is so not right. She’s a very cute little one. Just because you write in Spanish doesn’t mean some of us on here can’t read it.

She is an absolute doll!

Tough sh*t! Its not up to the insurance to decide what happened to heath! Its the f*cking examiners and they said its an accident. Case closed! I hate insurance companies! sheep's wool @ 09/30/2008 at 11:13 am

I’m so glad that Matilda gets Heath estate. As his daughter, she is entitled to it. I continue to keep Matilda and her wonderful mom, Michelle, in my prayers. Now that this matter is resolved, Heath can finally RIP.

Any way to get these pics of Matilda WALKING down the streets of NYC(not being carried) and wearing a little sweater to Katie Holmes.

Matilda looks just like Heath it is amazing how much she looks like him.

Matilda is mini-Heath!
Just wish he could be now with her…

Rest in peace Heath

How do you people know if he kept up the premiums for the insurance
policy.. And they always investigate .. and if it is suicide they do not pay
it…Is it Matilda’s lawyer or one of Heath’s parents lawyers that is suing..

It does make a difference because it should be Michelle lawyer.. and
no one else

BECKY SMITH @ 09/30/2008 at 11:57 am

Who was it that sued the insurance company Michelle’s lawyer or one of Heath’s parents lawyers.. That makes a big difference..The money
should be in a trust until she is 18 years old..

And only person who has access to it is her mother Michelle…

What a lovely thing for Heath’s family to do

Oh my god, so cute!
