  • Michelle Williams slams Ledger feud rumours

    Michelle Williams has hit out at reports that she’s deliberately missing the premiere of The Dark Knight because of tension with former boyfriend Heath Ledger’s family.

    Rumours were circulating that the actress was avoiding the premiere because a rift had formed between her and the late Heath’s family over providing her and Heath’s daughter, Matilda, with financial support.

    But Michelle’s rep Mara Buxbaum says the rumours are absolutely not true. She said: ‘The presumption that Michelle ever intended to attend The Dark Knight premiere is unfounded, but to say she is ‘boycotting’ due to a rift with Heath’s family is absurd.’

    She added: ‘ It is time to allow this family to go about their lives without this continued scrutiny and speculation.’

    Ledger’s family recently confirmed they would be flying from Perth, Western Australia, to New York to attend his premiere on 14 July, just days before the six-month anniversary of the actor’s death.

    Ledger died of a prescription drug overdose at the age of 28 on 22 January 2008.
