Heath Ledger may have secret Aussie love child



Tbdheathledger040108 Apparently a sufficient amount of time has passed since Heath Ledger's death that all the atrocious stuff associated with celebrities kicking starts to come out. To wit: Australia's Daily Telegraph says Ledger may have fathered a secret love child.

A 17-year-old schoolboy Heath allegedly had an affair with an older woman who was living with another man at the time. After Heath and the woman broke it off, she discovered she was pregnant with a daughter, the paper claims.

"There is a very real possibility that Heath was the father," Heath's uncle Hadyn Ledger said. If true, that means estate claims would have to be split with Matilda Rose, Heath's two-year-old daughter with Michelle Williams. Of course, we wouldn't be surprised to hear this is some grand money-stealing scheme launched by the dreadful, outcast Ledger uncles, but we'll just have to wait and see.
