Michelle Williams is responding to reports that a rift with Heath Ledger’s family is the reason she will not be attending the premiere of Heath’s last completed movie, “The Dark Knight.”

“The presumption that Michelle ever intended to attend ‘The Dark Knight’ premiere is unfounded, but to say she is ‘boycotting’ due to a rift with Heath’s family is absurd,” a rep for Williams said in a statement released to People.

The rep went on to say, “It is time to allow this family to go about their lives without this continued scrutiny and speculation.”

Heath’s family will reportedly fly from Australia to New York for the premiere of the new installment of the Batman franchise on July 14, which falls just days before the six-month anniversary of Heath’s death.
