"Heart Broken" Michelle Releases Statement

2/1/2008 2:49 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Michelle WilliamsTen days after the death of Heath Ledger, former fianceé and baby mama Michelle Williams released a statement. It reads:

"Please respect our need to grieve privately. My heart is broken. I am the mother of the most tender-hearted, high-spirited, beautiful little girl who is the spitting image of her father. All that I can cling to is his presence inside her that reveals itself every day. His family and I watch Matilda as she whispers to trees, hugs animals, and takes steps two at a time and we know that he is with us still. She will be brought up with the best memories of him."

I know TMZ could find a better picture of her. So, give her some respect at least by putting up a better photo - good grief!

to bad it wasn't sooner!    

Did she leave him because he was doing drugs? And now everyone wants to feel sorry for his family because he's dead....maybe drugs maybe not! What makes him different from any other actor that has had a drug problem and died...nothing!

Hopefully Heath can rest in peace knowing that is beautiful little girl is being raised by such a down to earth and sensitive woman. I strongly believe Michelle will carry on his legacy for their daughter. And I pray that her request is granted. That she is left alone to grieve without the world watching. May she someday find peace.

Why TMZ? WHY? Why did you put such an awlful picture of Michelle up? Are you mad at her for some reason??

What a simple and lovely statement. It says it all. I thank her for talking to the public finally, now if only the media and certain fans could keep their statements this simple and clear.

i think that hollywood needs to start drug testing before they allow a actor to do a movie and if they come back postive they should be fined just like in sports, how many more GREAT young actors have to do before something gets done in hollywood. if heath had such a drug problem as everyone is saying how come no one did anything to help him out. i know that he kept to him self wasn`t really in the spot light likes others in hollywood but if it was that bad of a problem then why did no one try and get him help.

God Bless Michelle, Matilda & Heath's family. We lost my oldest son's father at a very young age, (he was just 26 and our son was 6). You will always have a part of Heath in your hearts and in Matilda..
I pray you will all find strength & peace.
Many Blessings!
