Supposedly at age 17, Heath Ledger had an affair with an older woman. When the affair ended, the woman was pregnant and had a child. The woman is asking for privacy for the sake of her child. Her stepfather is asking for a DNA test to ease press attention.
My solution: Let the man rest in peace. Seems to me like, after someone’s death, things always pop up. If the mother has no interest in pursuing the accusation, then everyone needs to leave it alone. There have been so many stories on Ledger since his death. It is amazing how famous people become after their death. Not that he was not famous, but I think he is more famous now than he has ever been.
