Heath Ledger’s Secret Past of Drug and Alcohol Abuse

Surprise, surprise.

It looks like Heath Ledger had secretly battled drug and alcohol abuse for quite some time.

In March 2006 – just weeks after the couple walked the Oscars red carpet and when daughter Matilda was only five months old – Williams drove Ledger to Promises Treatment Center in Malibu, California, the confidant tells Us Weekly.

Ledger refused to check in, instead swaying her with a pledge to clean up.

Even after the couple realized “they were in way over their heads,” according to a source, and split in September 2007, two sources tell Us that Williams demanded Ledger be drug-tested before his visitations with Matilda.

Oh, Heath. You’ll be missed.

  • He was NOT having problems buying and taking the drugs, it was the people in his life.. whom he knew and desired to impress or please, that objected that he took drugs; that had the problems. Quote: Markee Your Friendly Drug Dealer.

  • YOU GUYS ARE IGNORANT JACKASS’S CANT U SEE HIS FAMILY IS HURTING DEEP INSIDE, I KNEW HEATH PERSONALLY, AND I KNOW HE WOULDNT WANT FANS TALKING ABOUT HIM WHEN HE IS GONE, AND DRAGING IT ALONG…… COZ HIS FAMILY MIGHT SEE AND THEY WILL START TO FEEL THE SORROW OF THEIR LOSS AND I KNOW U GUYS WOULDNT WANT HIS FAMILY FEELING WORSE THEN THEY ALREADY ARE ………..

    STOP STALKING HIS MEMORY AND RESPECT HIS FAMALY’S WISHES……..

    HE NEVER WANTED TO LEAVE HIS LOVER AND CHILD BEHIND LIKE THAT……..

    HE DIDN’T DRUG HIMSELF ON PERPOUSE HE JUST MISREAD THE INSTRUCTIONS WRONG ON THE LABEL OF THE DRUG….. THAT THE DOCTOR GAVE TO HIM……

    IF U WERE REALLY HIS FANS YOU WOULD BACK OFF AND LEAVE HIS MEMORY TO HIS FAMILY ALONE………. AND STOP MAKING UP CRAP ABOUT HIM…….

  • i highly dout that you knew heath ledger. if you were his friend then that would mean you are in fact an adult and adult can spell, its obvious you can’t because you can’t even spell purpose. ad im sure Heath would be glad to know that this much people care about him, so why don’t you stop pretending that you know him when you know you don’t!! And by the way im sure his friends dont say on there names hath’s mate. thats kinda weird and obsessive

    • i completely agree with you. i’ve never met him personally either.
      but i would’ve loved to. &&heath’s mate IS a bit weird.
      he cant spell for shit.

  • ok… Ally.. SHUT THE FUCK UP YOU BITCH! YOU HAVE NO RIGHT TO TALK ABOUT HIS BAD SPELLING! FOR ONE… AND HAS AN N IN IT… AND FOR TWO… ITS HEATH, NOT HATH.. YOU FUCKING DOUCHE

  • Heath Ledger was a private person. The public will never know the man upon the screen personally, we will never understand his death or why it happened but…We will all hurt, miss and give thanks for the Heath Ledger each of us saw and knew.
