(Newser) – Heath Ledger’s ex-girlfriend Michelle Williams is livid at the exclusion of her and her daughter from the execution of Ledger’s will, the NY Post reports. Ledger’s will, which leaves everything to his parents and sisters, predates the birth of their daughter Matilda—who is now the legal beneficiary of his estate and has yet to see a cent, according to Williams.

"Michelle is furious with Heath's family," says one insider. "Matilda is supposed to be the beneficiary of the will, but Michelle has seen nothing from them. Heath didn't have much in cash, but there was a big house in LA and a back-end deal for Dark Knight [that] could reap millions."
