Melbourne, Oct 1 : Heath ledger's daughter Matilda may become world's wealthiest girl if she wins 75 million court battle over the late actor's life insurance.
Heath's lawyer John LaViolette has sued the American ReliaStar Life Insurance company, as the firm has refused to pay out the 12.5 million dollar policy the 'Broke Back Mountain' star took out last June - seven months before his death.
William Shernoff, representing LaViolette, said the company was wrongfully prying into Ledger's life to stall paying up.
"The money belongs to Matilda," the Daily Telegraph quoted Shernoff, as saying.
LaViolette would hold the money for Matilda until she turns 18. Neither Michelle nor Heath's family is involved in the legal action.
