Michelle Williams Releases A Statement: "My Heart Is Broken"

Michelle Williams has finally come out with her first public statement since the death of ex-fiancé Heath Ledger, saying simply, "Please respect our need to grieve privately. My heart is broken."

Michelle goes on to say, "I am the mother of the most tender-hearted, high-spirited, beautiful little girl who is the spitting image of her father. All I can cling to is his presence inside her that reveals itself every day. His family and I watch Matilda as she whispers to trees, hugs animals, and takes two steps at a time and we know that he is with us still. She will be brought up with the best memories of him."

The statement was released this morning to Reuters by Heath's publicist. The 28-year-old Australian was found dead in his New York apartment on January 22. Heath and Michelle met on the set of Brokeback Mountain in 2005, and had a daughter, Matilda, 2. They split in October last year.
