Washington, Feb 1 : Heath Ledger's cocaine and heroin addiction in the past year forced his partner Michelle Williams to chuck him out of their Brooklyn house, it has been revealed.
A member of Ledger's entourage who did drugs with him has revealed that Williams was fed-up with the actor's regular doping, and gave him an ultimatum.
"She couldn't take it any more. Heath wouldn't show up for two to three days, and all of a sudden he would show up on her doorstep, an absolute wreck," the New York Post quoted the source, as saying.
"He was partying, doing drugs. She didn't like the company he was keeping. She gave him an ultimatum. . . . and threatened to get custody of the girl. He wanted to make it work, but it was this scene he was wrapped up in. Was he an addict? Yeah," the source added.
Heath's drug pal also revealed that the 28-year-old star's escalating fame had him constantly exposed to drugs.
"He was hanging out with a bad crowd. He wasn't cleaning up his act. He was making absolutely no effort . . . He was really into heroin. He wasn't sleeping or communicating with anyone," the source said.
The revelation comes as "Entertainment Tonight" and "The Insider" declared that "out of respect for Heath Ledger's family," they would cancel plans to air a video of Ledger snorting cocaine with a rolled-up bill at the Chateau Marmont in Hollywood.
