Michelle WilliamsLondon, Sep 29 (IANS) The father of late Australian actor Heath Ledger has revealed that his son’s fortune will go to his two-year-old daughter Matilda Rose.The 28-year-old actor left everything to his parents and three sisters in his will that was signed by the actor two years before Matilda was born, reports dailymail.co.uk.

The will left half the estate to Ledger’s sisters, Kate and Olivia Ledger and Ashleigh Bell. The remainder was to go to his father and mother Sally Bell, after debts had been paid.

It was expected that Ledger’s former fiancee, Michelle Williams, would lodge a claim on the will on behalf of their daughter. But Ledger’s father, Kim, instead told Australia’s Herald Sun that the family had decided to give everything to Matilda.

“There is no claim. Our family has gifted everything to Matilda,” his father told the newspaper.

Ledger was found dead in his downtown Manhattan apartment Jan 22, after an accidental overdose of prescription drugs.
