Legal fight over Heath Ledger ”drug tape” settledJanuary 21st, 2009 - 2:51 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, Jan 21 (ANI): A legal feud over a leaked video, which allegedly showed late Heath Ledger using cocaine, has now reached settlement.
In the clip, Ledger is shown among a group of people snorting the drug at Hollywood’’s Chateau Marmont hotel in 2006.
However, leaked footage has apparently provided no evidence Ledger actually took the drug.
A woman named Jane Doe, in whose hotel room the footage was shot, had filed a lawsuit claiming that she didnt take drugs and never gave her consent for the video to be filmed by her paparazzo boyfriend.
The video was sold by photo agency Splash to TV show Entertainment Tonight soon after Ledger’’s death from an accidental overdose of prescription drugs in January 2008.
But the show never aired the footage, reports Contactmusic.
The details of the agreement between Doe and the agency have not been revealed. (ANI)
