About Matilda Rose

Matilda Rose is the daughter of late actor Heath Ledger. Ledger's friend Jake Gyllenhaal took the responsibility of being her Godfather after the death of Ledger.

Property & Wealth

Ledger had signed the will at the Supreme Court in Perth, on April 12, 2003, before Matilda was born. The will had stated that the estate would half be awarded to his sisters Kate and Olivia Ledger and Ashleigh Bell, and the remainder would go to his parents, Kim Ledger and Sally Bell, after debts had been paid. However, now Ledger's father, Kim, has revealed that the whole family has agreed on giving the entire fortune to Matilda as a gift.

A former attorney for Ledger, John S. LaViolette, sued Minnesota-based ReliaStar Life Insurance Co. in July, saying the company is trying to avoid paying the claim
