Yesterday, the New York Post published a piece claiming the Feds were looking to question Mary-Kate Olsen about the death of Heath Ledger. Specifically, they wanted to ask her about two painkillers, OxyContin and Vicodin, that contributed to his overdose. Mary-Kate has agreed to speak with them, but only if she receives immunity. Despite this plea bargain, Mary-Kate’s lawyer denies she had anything to do with Heath’s death. He released this statement:
“Despite tabloid speculation, Mary-Kate Olsen had nothing whatsoever to do with the drugs found in Heath Ledger’s home or his body, and she does not know where he obtained them,” he said in a statement.
Miller added that “we have provided the government with relevant information including facts in the chronology of events surrounding Mr. Ledger’s death and the fact that Ms. Olsen does not know the source of the drugs Mr. Ledger consumed.
“We don’t know the source of the information being quoted in the media regarding the government’s inquiry, but these descriptions are incomplete and inaccurate.”
Um, what’s the immunity for then? Diseases? Someone should really tell Mary-Kate that the government doesn’t have the power to give her that kind of immunity. That’s something you get shots for. “Oh, but I don’t like needles,” Mary-Kate would say. God, so dumb, so dumb.
