  • Heath Ledger's ex denies love child rumours

    A woman who reportedly had an affair with Heath Ledger 11 years ago has come forward to deny reports her daughter is his.

    Ledger’s uncle Haydn had claimed that the late actor may have become a dad at 17 after an affair with the married 25-year-old woman in Perth, Australia.

    But the woman, who has since re-married, says there is no proof to link him to her daughter, now 11.

    She told a Western Australian newspaper: ‘I’m not answering anything. I think it’s very, very rude that I’m being posed all of this. I really do. I can’t talk about anything.

    ‘You have no proof, there’s no background, there’s no grounds, there’s no nothing.’

    Her husband said: ‘I’m the step-dad, but there’s nothing to hide… and if I asked [the mother], I’m sure that she wouldn’t mind [having a DNA test].’

    He added: ‘It would probably be a great thing if she was [Heath’s], but no.’
