This is just so sad…I didn’t believe it when I heard it on the news last night…I had to rewind because I thought I misheard. Heath was only 28 and he had a adorable baby daughter, and a very promising career…he had a big movie coming out this summer titled, “The Dark Knight.” Heath and (then wife) Michelle were one of the very first couples I dedicated a category to. My thoughts and prayers go out to Heath’s family. 🙁
Michelle Williams was on location in Sweden, believed to be with 2-year-old daughter Matilda, when she got the terrible news.
“She’s devastated,” says a source close to Michelle, 27.
Although their three-year relationship didn’t last, Michelle and Heath could always agree that their daughter comes first.
“He was absolutely in love with his daughter,” says another source. “And he really liked what he did [acting]. He spoiled Matilda rotten. He was playful and very funny with her.”
The source adds: “I can’t believe Matilda is going to grow up without a dad, without knowing her father. And that Michelle will have to deal with having a daughter who’s lost her father. She’s a survivor. She’ll make it, but it’s going to be hard. Her first concern is going to be Matilda.”
