Mary-Kate's Lawyer: She Knows Nothing

8/4/2008 7:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

After reports surfaced the Feds have repeatedly tried and failed to get Mary-Kate Olsen to spill what she knows about how Heath Ledger got the drug cocktail that eventually killed him, the tiny twin's attorney Michael Miller has issued the following statement:

"Despite tabloid speculation, Mary-Kate Olsen had nothing whatsoever to do with the drugs found in Heath Ledger's home or his body, and she does not know where he obtained them. Regarding the government's investigation, at Ms. Olsen's request, we have provided the government with relevant information including facts in the chronology of events surrounding Mr. Ledger's death and the fact that Ms. Olsen does not know the source of the drugs Mr. Ledger consumed. "

Cops say the masseuse who found Ledger's body last January spent nine minutes making three separate calls to Olsen before calling 911, then called her again after paramedics arrived. After getting the calls, cops say MK sent her bodyguard to go check on the situation .

This little twin-twit doesn't know much about the world, but she knows what happened to Heath, and how it happened or immunity wouldn't be an issue.. The calls she made after Heath was found were apparently made to begin the drug cover-up. She is nothing but a drunk, drugged-out, chain-smoking disappointment. Fish mouthed troll.

Is the headline for this story an unintentionally funny observation on Mary-Kate's intelligence? Personally, I think it's cruel how some actresses are lumped together as being airheads. ;-)

so we cant talk for ourselves anymore?she cant even give heath enough respect to come out herself like a big girl and say listen i didnt know anything.shes hiding behind a bunch of hotshot attorneys now?shes just makin herself look guilty as hell to me.if i didnt do anything i would have no problem goin in to the police and telling them.if she had any respect for heaths little girl,she would go in n tell what she knows.and u also need to understand its not heaths fault he was given medication.the dr saw a whole lotta money signs when he walked in,and thats all they care about.when i was in labor i requested an epidural.the dr came in and gave me way too much of the medication.when asked why he said he just guessed at how tall i was and gave me what he thought was nessecary.i and my child could have died cause some dr just guessed i was 5'8,when im actually only 5'1 and anyone can tell u i dont look 5'8 at all.so dont go blaming him u werent there nor was i.no one cares that a little girl has been left without a daddy.all you all want to do is run ur mouth and say he was stupid well dont we all do stupid stuff in our lives that we regret?does that give u the right to talk crap about someone whos deceased? people wonder why this world is screwy.maybe its the fact that none of us has any respect or compassion for each other anymore,living or dead.think about that next time u open ur fat mouth and spew hate out of it.

I don't personally know MK or did I know anyone involved. Granted, it does sound suspicious, but unless we were there, than none of us really knows. Don't assume what MK did or didn't do. Heath was a grown man and responsible for his own life. She couldn't possibly have forced him to take anything being 3000 miles away.

If the Feds prove the drugs came from Mary-Kate Olsen. She goes down like Martha Stewart.
THe best thing is not to talk to the FBI, You make a mistake, they can give you a felony for
lying to the FBI.

If you have your lawyer say you know nothing, you know something.

I agree with 16. No call to 911, but THREE to someone 3,000 miles away? Hmm.

Michael Miller, just like Johnny Cochran does a lot of talking for the client.

"Despite tabloid speculation" - The Feds want to talk to Mary-Kate Olsen, not the media.

How does the Lawyer know about the drugs found in Heath Ledger's home?

Mary Kate does not know where he obtained them. - How cute.

Maybe Mary Kate brought the drugs to Ledger's apartment, and is now trying to hide any involvement with his death.

While I don't like this strange creature of an "actress", post #14 makes sense. She is probably asking for immunity not because she´s guilty of a crime but to protect herself from some scam the insurance company or someone is trying to draw her into. O.K., SHE isn't asking for immunity because she probably has an IQ between plant life and moron. But her lawyers are asking for immunity because they probably smell a scam.

This is just another in a long line of showing us how the elites (aka actors, musicians, athletes, politicians, etc...) are actually above the law!! If the cops were looking you in the eyes and you said that you wanted immunity you wouldn't have time to spit before the cuffs would be on and you would be on your way to jail. What makes them so special??? Especially when someone has died! Did she arrange his drugs for him? Did she provide any of the illegal items he ACCIDENTALLY took? Why is it when THEY take too many drugs they get a slap on the hand, a week in a rehab and then back to the drugs? Oh by the way, I agree with her lawyer, he said a mouthful!!

KATHY =( ^-^ )=    

Mary-Kate is hiding something... Asking for immunity..How suspious is that? I hope TMZ,and other news outlets dig into to this like a festering sore until she cracks... Why would anyone need immunity,unless they are hiding something that could get you into trouble..I say that she shouid not be allowed to get immunity..She should sit in a cell until she fesses up.. This is suspious... I say get the pitch forks out .. This rich malnourished B*#!! is hiding something that she did wrong.. This is an admittance of guilt, plain and simple.... again as others have said..
.R.I.P. HEATH...
