Michelle Williams Heartbroken Over Ledger
Heath Ledger's former partner, actress Michelle Williams, has broken her silence and made her first public statement since Ledger's death last week.
"Please respect our need to grieve privately. My heart is broken," [Michelle] Williams said in a statement released on Friday by Ledger's spokeswoman.
Williams, 27, and Ledger met on the set of the 2005 movie "Brokeback Mountain," fell in love and had Matilda, who is now two years old.
They lived together in New York and speculation was that they planned to marry, although they never officially confirmed an engagement. Williams and Ledger split up in September.
