Michelle's Dad to Heath's Dad: Spill It!

3/25/2008 3:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Heath LedgerMichelle Williams' dad has leveled an extraordinary challenge at Kim Ledger, Heath's dad, demanding that he account for all of the late actor's assets.

Larry Williams, a famed futures trader, tells Australia's Sunday Telegraph that he thinks Kim and family "certainly haven't stated all of the assets" belonging to Heath when he died in January. Larry is "perplexed" that docs filed in a New York court said that Heath had only $145,000 in assets when he died.

"It's real simple," said Larry. "Just come clean with everything. He just has to say where the income went and where the assets were."

Remy "Defense" – The Gun Just Went Off!


The defense in the Remy Ma case acknowledged that Remy had shot her friend, but said in its closing that the gun went off during a struggle over a bag.

Remy had maintained that her victim, Makeda Barnes Joseph, had reached into her bag and that she thought she had stolen $3,000 from her. When Joseph refused to dump her own bag, Remy and her friend, said the defense, tussled over the purse and the gun then went off, and Joseph was shot in the abdomen.

Remy, said the prosecution, didn't call 911 or a hospital, and pointed out that the gun was an illegal .45 automatic loaded with hollow-point bullets.

Kind of odd that Michelle Williams' dad is commenting on money, since he is under investigation for some kind of illegal activity concerning money himself.

Just my opinion    

The big money is yet to come, from the Batman flick...the baby is the only one that should receive any money. Put it all in a trust.
Just my thoughts.......

Kim Ledger can't handle finances, according to his own siblings. But Mr. Williams is himself under investigation, so it's curious that he chose to enter the fray.

Remy deserves to be convicted. Her attorney's account is not credible. She shot her onetime friend and has flushed her own career down the toilet. A sad, familiar story. Her former friend will win a civil action against Ma, and she'll be an ex-con has-bee.

Shoulda, coulda, woulda.

I think the little girl is entitled to the estate but Kim and family are beginning to look odd to me. Like they are the money hungy folks. Kim has her own money, but still they should all stop focusing on Keaths money. it seems strange to me.

You have to remember this was as of 2003, he has made lots of money since the will was drafted. I do agree where there's a death and money to be collected, the greedy shall come. It's sad. I find it even more sad that no one seems to care that the saddest part of this whole story is a little girl that will never see or be with her father again.

No one ever said that actors are smart people. Money is a problem for these people, most just spend without knowing how much they have or is worth.

I knew something like this was going to happen and since Heath had a child they have a right to know where the money is/went he had a serious drug problem that's why it took so long for them to call 911 the woman and bodyguard discarded the evidence first...just my opinion and so sad for Heath...

I also want to add that they have a right to know due to them having a child together if there is a large amount of money somewhere and will be as soon as the batman movie comes out all of it should go to his daughter in a trust fund and reasonable living expenses for Michelle to raise their daughter on...

Rest in peace Heath. Matilda should be the only party to benefit from the loss. The Ledger family must think Heath was not a star to say "that is what his estate is worth." They obviously were not aware of the last movies Heath made nor the royalties from any of his pevious work...let sleeping dogs lie.

I am getting really tired of the comments about Heath's drug use. If you know anything about medications you would know that these were generic meds. If Heath was a hard core drug user like some of you think, he would have been buying the real stuff. I know for a fact that oxycodone is not the same as oxycontin because I have been on the generic version for several years. And in reference to his money, I'm sure that his family will see to it that his daughter is taken care of. I may be wrong and anybody is welcome to correct me but I don't think Michelle is entitled to any of it because they weren't married.

Things like this should not be public knowledge. That's the price of being famous. Good luck Michelle and Matilda.

I think you're all forgetting that Michelle is an extremely capable Mother who earns a good living for herself and daughter. She isn't helpless and will provide her daughter with everything she needs.
