Matilda Rose Ledger, who turns 3 in October, will inherit her father Heath’s fortune following the actor’s untimely death, Australian newspaper the Sunday Times reported.
The fate of “The Dark Knight” star’s fortune has been up in the air since his accidental death in January.
Ledger left behind his former partner, Michelle Williams, and their daughter, Matilda Rose — and a will that left his assets to his parents and three sisters, Kate and Olivia Ledger and Ashleigh Bell. Now, the Ledgers have agreed on the fate of the money.
“Our family has gifted everything to Matilda,” Heath’s father, Kim Ledger, told the Sunday Times on Saturday. “There is no claim.”
The Ledger estate has reportedly been estimated at up to $20 million, though the actor's will reportedly lists only $145,000 in assets and cash.
Ledger died of an overdose of prescription drugs in his New York apartment on Jan. 22. His critically acclaimed performance as the Joker in summer box office hit “The Dark Knight” has earned him early Oscar buzz.
