  • Does Heath Ledger have a secret love child?

    Late star Heath Ledger may have fathered a secret love child who could claim on his estate, his uncle has alleged.

    The actor’s uncle Haydn, who is estranged from his brother, Heath’s father Kim, has claimed Ledger had an affair with a woman of 25 when he was 17, in his home city of Perth, Australia.

    His lover, now married with a family, is believed to have found out she was pregnant after their split.

    Haydn told Sydney’s Daily Telegraph: ‘There is a very real possibility Heath is the father.’

    Heath, who died of an accidental prescription drug overdose on 22 January, has a child, two-year-old Matilda, with his ex-fiancée Michelle Williams.
