Heath Ledger's ex-girlfriend was on her way back to New York City immediately after hearing the horrible news about Heath. The two have a daughter together, Matilda Rose.
Michelle's father told The Daily Telegraph that Heath's death has left his family heart broken. He described him as a "great talent" and an amazing father.
"I think Tennyson got it right in the poem when he described someone as having died at a young age but burning the candles at both ends, and oh what a beautiful flame he made, that was Heath, what a beautiful flame he made and a great talent."
"My heart goes out to everyone in his family and my family."
"The saddest thing is his daughter whom he just loved dearly."
I'm still in a state of shock! This is such a tragic thing and as Williams' dad said, it is very sad that Matilda will never really get to spend time with her dad. Sad.
