    Daughter Matilda To Inherit Heath Ledger’s Fortune

    Matilda Rose Ledger will inherit her father Heath’s fortune following the actor’s untimely death, Australia newspaper the Sunday Times reported.

    The fate of “The Dark Knight” star’s fortune has been up in the air since his death in January, which left behind his former partner, Michelle Williams, and their daughter, Matilda Rose – and a will that left his assets instead to the late actor’s parents and three sisters, Kate and Olivia Ledger and Ashleigh Bell. The will was reportedly prepared before Matilda’s birth. Now, the Ledgers have agreed on the fate of the money.

    “Our family has gifted everything to Matilda,” Heath’s father, Kim Ledger, told the Sunday Times on Saturday. “There is no claim.”

    The Ledger estate has reportedly been estimated at sums up to $20 million, though his will reportedly lists only $145,000 in assets and cash.
