Heath Ledger Drug Tape Video Shows Him At Cocaine Party

A video that is said to be shot in January 2006 shows Heath Ledger at Los Angeles celebrity hangout Chateau Marmont, surrounded by people snorting cocaine off a coffee table at a drug party.

"I'm going to get serious sh*t from my girlfriend, we had a baby three months ago - Matilda, Matilda Rose," Ledger says in the video. "I shouldn't be here at all."

At another point in the video he says: "I used to smoke five joints a day for 20 years", in a slurred voice.

'Entertainment Tonight' and 'The Insider' have reportedly paid $200,000 for the video footage and report Ledger's ex-fiancee, Michelle Williams, and young daughter were upstairs in their room at the hotel when the video was shot. Short clips were aired today with host Mary Hart saying the program would air the footage tomorrow night.

However, due to legal pressure believed to have been applied and widespread outrage, the show has now chosen not to air the footage: "Out of respect for Heath Ledger's family, Entertainment Tonight and The Insider have decided not to run the Heath Ledger video which has been circulating in the world media."

The clip that was aired is below for those that want to see it:

Meanwhile, 'Us Weekly' claims Michelle Williams even drove Ledger to a Malibu rehab in March 2006, because he was abusing heroin, cocaine, various pills and alcohol but Ledger refused to check in, and said he would instead clean up on his own.
