Robert Pattinson Defends Heath Ledger

Robert Pattinson

No laughing matter!

According to a witness at the No on H8 show at The ­Improv in Hollywood on Dec. 16, Twilight star Robert Pattinson, 22, booed a comic who said, “Here’s my impression of Heath Ledger,” then collapsed and began faking convulsions.

“Robert and his friend went nuts yelling at him,” the source tells Us Weekly. “[Pattinson screamed] f–k you! You suck!”

But the actor — who recently cut his famous hair — went unrecognized by the performing comic.

“The comic didn’t know who it was, but I’m sure he found out later!” the source tells Us.

Go Rob! Don’t let ’em make fun of our beloved Heath. He will always remain a legend.

Heath Ledger’s Entire Estate Left to Daughter


After months of closed-door court meetings — all of Heath Ledger’s estimated $20 mil estate will go to his 2-year old daughter Matilda Rose.

According to news reports, Heath’s dad Kim Ledger says the will originally had all the assets divided up to his parents and sisters, but Heath’s family thought the right thing to do was to give it all up — for the benefit of Matilda.

Heath Ledger died of an accidental prescription pill overdose in January.

Heather Mills leaked Paul McCartney’s operation news

Heather Mills

Paul McCartney’s ex Heather Mills was responsible for leaking a bogus story about the rocker’s heart problems earlier this year in a bid to discredit the star.

The former Beatle was alleged to have undergone a secret coronary angioplasty operation in December 2007, after doctors warned MCCartney that his reported drink and marijuana habits had contributed to the health scare.

MCCartney subsequently blasted the reports, insisting he never had such an operation.

And now Mills’ former publicist Michele Elyzabeth has confessed to releasing the story to the media herself – on the instruction of the ex-glamour model.

She says, “Heather instructed me to leak news about Paul’s op in a bid to win sympathy. She told me his procedure was the result of drinking too much red wine and smoking too much dope. I don’t know if that was true, but I greatly doubt it now. Heather had first told me about Paul’s heart problem in 2006 when they were still married. She said his doctor had told him to stop smoking pot and drinking because he was going to die. She claimed he didn’t care and refused to stop. But he still went ahead and had the op. Heather never produced any evidence to back it up, but she insisted it was true so she wanted it out there.”

Feds officially close Heath Ledger investigation, Mary-Kate Olsen off the hook

Mary-Kate Olsen

The U.S. Attorney’s Office closed its investigation into Heath Ledger’s accidental overdose death and will not enforce a subpoena against Mary-Kate Olsen, a law-enforcement source tells People.

The probe was closed without any charges being filed.

Olsen, 22, was subpoenaed by a federal grand jury on April 23, but her attorney had been in negotiations with federal authorities since then, the source says.

Olsen had wanted immunity before testifying. Olsen’s attorney released a statement saying the actress “had nothing to do” with Ledger’s drugs and had already provided “relevant information” to investigators.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office and Olsen’s rep both declined to comment.

Ledger, 28, was found dead in his Soho apartment on Jan. 22, and the coroner determined the actor died of an accidental overdose of prescription drugs for pain, anxiety and sleep.

Olsen Called When Body Found
The federal probe focused on how he obtained Oxycontin and Vicodin, two powerful and often-abused painkillers for which Ledger had no prescription.

Masseuse Diana Wolozin found Ledger lying on his bed shortly after 3 p.m., and called Olsen three times, records show. The longest call lasted one minute and three seconds.

Wolozin told Drug Enforcement Administration agents she called Olsen because “it was the right thing to do” and spoke to her each time, but agents had not been able to confirm that with Olsen, the source says. They requested Olsen’s phone records but had not yet received them, the source says.

Olsen’s bodyguards arrived on the scene four minutes after Wolozin called 911, and just as the paramedics were arriving. They, too, cooperated with the federal probe but “had nothing pertinent to say,” the source says.

Olsen was the only person who declined to be interviewed in the investigation, the source said. Model Helena Christiansen was interviewed as was Ledger’s ex-girlfriend Michelle Williams and Ledger’s family and friends.
