The Ledger family have released their vice-like grip on Heath Ledger’s estate and the whole pot will now go to his darling little two year-old girl, Matilda.
One of the issues the two sides of the family were battling with, was the fact that Heath made his will before little Mattie was born.
His finances were frankly, generally in a bit of a bad way, which is why it has taken so long to find any sort of resolution.
According to Perth Now:
EVERY penny of Heath Ledger’s estimated $20 million will go to his little girl Matilda Rose, Ledger’s father says. In his will, which has been probated behind closed doors at the Supreme Court in Perth, Ledger left everything to his parents and three sisters. Many observers expected his former partner Michelle Williams to lodge a claim on the will, which was signed by the actor on April 12, 2003, two years before Matilda was born.
The will left half of the estate to Ledger’s sisters, Kate and Olivia Ledger and Ashleigh Bell.
Michelle Williams’ father, who is a well-known stock market trader, had butted heads with the Ledger family, over some of the financial details in Ledger’s will that didn’t make sense.
Despite the millions of dollars in property in Ledger’s trusts, his will lists assets and cash of just $145,000, with no mention of mansions or millions.
Williams’ father has previously challenged the grieving Ledger family to publicly state the value of their son’s fortune.
Larry Williams, one of the world’s best-known stock market traders, said he was perplexed that documents filed in a New York court listed Ledger’s assets at just $145,000.
“It’s real simple: just come clean with everything,” he said.
UPDATE: The morally questionable people dealing with Heath’s life insurance may not pay out, as they think his death may have been a suicide!
According to TMZ:
The company that wrote Heath Ledger’s $10 million life insurance policy is being sued after claiming the actor’s death might have been a suicide, even though officials concluded it was accidental. Lawyers for Ledger’s daughter say it’s a transparent ploy to avoid paying the money.
ReliaStar Life Insurance Company wrote the policy in June 2007 — six months before Ledger died. The beneficiary of the policy is a trustee who would hold the money for 2-year-old Matilda.
Instead of paying the $10 mil, ReliaStar set out to investigate whether Ledger took his own life, despite the fact that the New York City Medical Examiner ruled the death accidental.
