Mary-Kate Olsen finally stepped forward after her name was drawn into Heath Ledger’s sudden and tragic death.
The two had been dating casually since late last year. Initial reports said he had been found in her apartment (not true); then police announced that she was the first person the housekeeper had called. In fact, she phoned her 3 times (a minute between each call) before calling 911.
“Heath was a friend. His death is a tragic loss. My thoughts are with his family during this very difficult time.”
Police have said they will not question Olsen in connection with the phone calls.
