Mary-Kate Is Off the Hook

For whatever reason, the DEA has ended its investigation into the death of Heath Ledger, so Mary-Kate will not have to testify before a grand jury. We’ll also probably never know how he got the OxyContin that contributed to his death, other than “illegally.”

Sigh.

Don’t take that kind of shit unless it’s prescribed by a doctor, kids … a doctor that you didn’t pay off! It’s very very dangerous!!!

MKO Talks Back

As rumors swirled Monday morning that Mary-Kate Olsen was being uncooperative with DEA agents — and implying that she may have been responsible for selling him the OxyContin that contributed to his overdose (I like how I say this as though I weren’t one of the people spreading the rumor) — Mary-Kate’s lawyer was quick to fight back.

“Despite tabloid speculation, Mary-Kate Olsen has nothing whatsoever to do with the drugs found in Heath Ledger’s home or his body, and does not know where he obtained them,” said Olsen attorney Michael C. Miller.

So, um, why doesn’t she want to talk to the Feds?

What is she hiding?

Was Mary-Kate Olsen Heath Ledger’s Secret Lover?

The magazine Grazia is reporting that MK has confirmed to them that she was, in fact, Heath Ledger’s lover at the time that he died.

“I’m just completely shattered about Heath,” Olsen is quoted as saying in Grazia. “I loved him so much. We had this amazing connection and now he’s gone. I just can’t get over him.”

Eh, take this for what it’s worth. I, for one, am not sure I buy it. I mean, MK might have been hooking up with Heath, but she’s not gonna be admitting in to some two-bit magazine. I call bullshit.

Oh, and E!’s resident recovering addict Ted Casablancas had this to say about Heath today:

In all this glorious (and quite deserved) rediscussion of Heath Ledger’s passing now that the Dark Knight is out, no one seems to be mentioning what the ef killed the Aussie star, i.e., drugs…way too many of them. I mean, when Di got smashed up a decade ago in Paris, the world was out to kill the press corps, blaming our kind for destroying the princess, when in fact, it was a drunken driver who killed the poor gal. And now, nothing at all’s being blamed. It’s just being labeled “tragic” and “too soon” that Heath passed. Look, idiots, it’s called drugging yourself to death. Wake up. I exclaim this entirely respectfully, too, mind you—no one misses his über talents more than I. Superdamn shame.

Word up, Ted.
