Looks like there is a Heath Ledger drug video doing rounds, taken from a drug binge party at a Hollywood hotel.
Heath Ledger is reportedly shown snorting cocaine in the alleged tape.
US TV shows ‘Entertainment Tonight‘ and ‘The Insider‘ have purchased the tape for a reported $200,000, but bosses have now decided not to show the footage.
“Out of respect for Heath Ledger’s family, ‘Entertainment Tonight’ and ‘The Insider’ have decided not to run the Heath Ledger video which has been circulating in the world’s media.”
The tape is understood to have been shot two years ago at Los Angeles celebrity hangout Chateau Marmont at a January 29 party following the Screen Actors Guild awards.
The fact that, Heath missed out on two nominations for Brokeback Mountain despite being the favourite, added a little twist to the events following the party.
Heath, who died in his New York apartment last week, talks about his former fiancé Michelle Williams and their two-year-old daughter Matilda, adding: “I’m going to get so much s**t from my girlfriend. We have a baby together – Matilda, Matilda Rose.”
Michelle, who is a former ‘Dawson’s Creek‘ actress, also tried to get him to enter a rehab.
What’s interesting is that the video was obtained by Australia’s Channel 9, which plans to air it tonight despite an uproar from the Hollywood community.
Certainly it would be bad for any Channel to spike up it’s TRPs by exploiting a dead man.
