Melbourne, Mar 23 : The father of late Heath Ledger's former partner Michelle Williams has asked the grieving family of the actor to publicly state the value of their son's fortune.
Larry Williams, who is one of the world's best known stock market traders, said he was puzzled that documents filed in a New York court listed the 'Brokeback Mountain' star's assets at just 145,000 dollars.
Williams issued the blunt challenge through The Sunday Telegraph.
"It's real simple: just come clean with everything,'' The Daily Telegraph quoted him, as challenging Kim Ledger, Heath's dad.
"It's so easy to resolve this. He just has to say where the income went and where the assets are.
"I'm certain that there is grieving in the Ledger family but (lawyers for) Kim have already filed papers in New York, so it seems like it's time to be transparent about it.
"I have no idea what Heath Ledger was worth (but) they certainly haven't stated all of the assets to the court," Williams added.
Williams conceded that he did not have a close relationship with his daughter and that he was not in constant contact with her.
However, he said he was certain that lawyers for Michelle, her toddler daughter Matilda and the Ledgers did not "sit down and sort all this out'' before the will was filed in New York.
The New York which acknowledge Heath's finances declare that "the total value of their shares of the estate will be 145,000 dollars'', with furniture and fixtures worth 20,000 dollars, a Toyota Prius worth 25,000 dollars and 100,000 dollars in miscellaneous bank accounts.
