Heath Ledger's Entire Estate Left to Daughter

9/28/2008 8:04 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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.

We don't even know if this is Heath's kid. Were there blood tests? Did the family insist? Williams gets around.....
The family should have kept the money. The value has to be higher in Australia. This mortage mess is gonna make us all be in the poor house.

I predicted from the very beginning that Heath's father would give the money to Matilda.
Whip, It doesn't matter whether Matilda is Heath's biological daughter or not although she does look like him. If he acknowledged her and signed the birth certificate, she is his daughter by law and the law is what counts when dealing with legal matters like wills and estates.

hey Whip #44,
Are you blind as a bat? You don't need to have DNA to prove that Matilda is Heath's daughter. She looks exactly like Heath Ledger. Heath's family did the right thing and gave all the monies to Matilda.

Whip, you're kidding right? How in the world can ANYONE deny that that little girl is anyone BUT Heath's daughter? She is the SPITTING IMAGE of him!! There's no way ANYONE can say that she is NOT Heath's child.
