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 .

As usual somebody always wants to blame someone else for their mistakes. He took drugs by his "own" choosing. And now that he is dead there are some people that want to blame someone else. He was an adult and should have known what he was doing and the consequences of what might happen.

On a side note "The Dark Knight" is probably no doubt one of the worst movies I have ever set through. Had Mr. Ledger have not died this movie would have already been on sale at Wal Mart. Very sad!

If she doesn't know anything, why is she seeking so hard for immunity against persecution?
She should want to help if they were as close as she says they were.
And if she knows nothing, there shouldn't be a problem.
I don't like her.

This totally reads cover-up by MK's people - Heath seemed like a great guy to the public...but I wouldn't be surprised if something turns up drug-wise between the two of them...if this was a tabloid creation - it would've been thrown-out months ago (and it hasn't)...we'll see......

Sorry to burst your Boston Legal lawyering skills... But if she is smart she will answer the question they have for her. If she does not they will go the grand jury route and she will be forced to appear. At that point she will be asked questions, if she doesn't want to answer those questions they can put her boney little butt in jail for contempt until she answers. The fact is she could be granted immunity from prosecution by the feds in their investigation, but anything she said could and would be available to the State of New York if she broke any laws and anything she said would and could be used by the heirs of Ledger in a civil suit for her involvement in his death. The fact that she isn't talking freely and sent people to work a cover-up means she will likely be toast... maybe not from any criminal charges but the civil suit could bankrupt half of the little ugly bone bag twins empire.

Oh please, everybody knows lawyers are notorious liars, even when they aren't representing a client! She is hiding something and is afraid of prosecution.

FYI.... This federal investigation is not about whether MKO was present when HL died, its about the prescription drugs that were found in his apartment.. Two of the drugs (pain killers) were obtained illegally and investigators are trying to find how he was able to obtain them. I hope this investigation leads to source and that they are prosecuted for murder!! Its time for MKO to tell the feds what she knows…..
