Heath "Drug" Video Lawsuit Settles

1/20/2009 4:40 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Heath LedgerA lawsuit over a never-aired video of Heath Ledger has settled.

Jane Doe (fake name) sued the photo agency Splash News, and a few other men, over video that was shot of Ledger and others in Doe's hotel room at the Chateau Marmont in 2006. The video was touted as Heath allegedly doing cocaine but we know ...nowhere in the video do you see Heath doing drugs.

Doe maintained she did not take part in any drug use and the video was shot without her consent.

The video was eventually sold to "Entertainment Tonight." The show promoted it but ultimately decided not to air it.

Terms of the settlement are confidential.

I am happy for Miss Doe.

Happier still that TMZ doesn't have a story... now back to Barack's parade!

Could "Jane Doe" possibly be Mary-Kate Olsen?.....

I saw the footage. He looked washed out and you could see people snorting drugs in the background. He was talking bout how his girlfreind was going to be pissed at him and how they had recently had a baby called Matilda.

Geeze, cut the dude some slack! He paid the ultimate price. RIP Heath. Another star that burned out way too young.

Great..the year after his death, it's settled. While this may be some type of victory for those involved in the lawsuit, the anniversary of his passing is upon us. Let his family remember him lovingly, not in the media's eye splashed in headlines of tabloids, but in their hearts. Let this story have a rest, no matter what the facts are, he is gone and may he rest in peace.

ET did air the video because that's where I saw it. They decided the following day not to show it anymore.
