Heath Ledger Drug Tape Sparks Controversy

by at . Comments

A tape of Heath Ledger allegedly at a drug binge party at a Hollywood hotel has surfaced on the Internet and is causing controversy.

The footage is believed to have been shot two years ago at L.A. celebrity hangout Chateau Marmont at a January 29, 2006 party following the Screen Actors Guild awards. Ledger had been nominated for Brokeback Mountain.

Heath Ledger appeared at the ceremony alongside girlfriend Michelle Williams, but she did not attend the private party and was reportedly sleeping in a room upstairs with the couple's infant daughter, Matilda.

The apparent Heath Ledger drug tape, which was taken through a window into a hotel room, showed him talking and shows at least one guest sniffing a "cocaine-like" substance off a table with a rolled up bill in his hand.

Heath Ledger's face is noticeably twitching as he says, "I'm gonna get so much sh*t from my girlfriend ... We have a baby three months ago. Matilda, Matilda Rose."

"I shouldn't be here at all."

At another point in the tape, Ledger talks about his marijuana habit, saying he "used to smoke five joints a day for 20 years."

The content of the drug tape is very sensitive given Ledger's tragic death in New York City on January 22, which remains unexplained at this time.

Emerging stories from various media outlets claim the 28-year-old Australian had been battling drug addiction problems and insomnia for years.

Entertainment Tonight
did not end up airing the drug tape on the air, but showed a lengthy promotional clip of it in the eastern half of the U.S.

The celebrity news show later said that it decided not to show the explosive footage out of respect for Heath Ledger's family.
