New information is coming out about Heath Ledgers previous issues with drugs and alcohol. One of those pesky sources is saying that Heath’s Ex, Michelle Williams, tried taking Heath to rehab back in 2006 but he didn’t go and vowed to clean up his act.
For three years, Williams was a firsthand witness to the gifted actor’s use of alcohol and drugs, including cocaine, heroin and “a variety of pills,” says a Ledger confidant. In March 2006 â€” just weeks after the couple walked the Oscars red carpet and when daughter Matilda was only five months old â€” Williams drove Ledger to Promises Treatment Center in Malibu, California, the confidant tells Us Weekly. Ledger refused to check in, instead swaying her with a pledge to clean up. Even after the couple realized “they were in way over their heads,” according to a source, and split in September 2007, two sources tell Us that Williams demanded Ledger be drug-tested before his visitations with Matilda.When news of Ledger’s death broke last Tuesday, Williams was inconsolable. “She cried and screamed as soon as she heard,” a source on the Swedish set of her latest film, Mammoth, tells Us.
It just goes to show that Michelle was doing whatever she could to try and save their relationship for the good of their daughter Matilda.
