Heath Ledger’s former girlfriend Michelle Williams is snubbing the premiere of his final complete film, after reportedly falling out with the actor’s family over her daughter’s inheritance.

The actor’s family is scheduled to make the trip from Australia back to New York – where the star died from an accidental overdose in January – for the screening of Batman Begins sequel The Dark Knight on July 14th.

But Williams, the mother of his two year old daughter Matilda, won’t be with them, according to the New York Post.

The newspaper claims Williams has fallen out with Ledger’s father Kim, who is the executor of the late actor’s estate.

A source tells the newspaper, “Michelle is furious with Heath’s family and threatening to boycott the premiere. Matilda is supposed to be the beneficiary of the will, but Michelle has seen nothing from them. Heath didn’t have much in cash, but there was a big house in LA and a back-end deal for ‘Dark Knight’ (that) could reap millions.”

Ledger left just $145,000 when he died, but recent reports claimed he created a trust for his daughter that includes a $3.1 million home in Los Angeles, a $2 million property nearby and a duplex in Brooklyn, New York – currently valued at $4.5 million.

I didn’t think she would go to the premiere, anyway. How painful would that be??

I would think Michelle would want to see the last movie Heath completed before his death. The Dark Knight is a celebration of his life. If Matilda is beneficiary to Heath’s will, Ledger’s family needs to respect his wishes.
