It’s hard to believe, but it’s already been five years since Dark Knight and Brokeback Mountain actor Heath Ledger died. And on the anniversary of his tragic death number of celebs have been taking the opportunity to share fond memories of the actor — including, of all people, Lindsay Lohan. The Punk’d alum had been rumored to be dating Heath back in 2008 and, as can be expected, did not take well to news of the tragedy. What did LiLo have to say about Heath Ledger on the fifth anniversary of his death?
A lot of things have changed since Heath Ledger passed away in 2008. Life has been particularly volatile for Lindsay Lohan, the troubled celeb who is already believed to have been struggling with drug use at the time of Heath’s death. Since then, Lindsay has been arrested on multiple occasions, spent time in rehab and watched as her until then mostly respectable career took a nosedive.
Lindsay may be in the midst of a massive amount of drama, but she chose to focus her latest Twitter post on memories of a lost friend. Although short and succinct, the post says a lot about Lindsay really felt about Heath: “rip HL forever in mine and “matty’s” heart (s) xx L.”
In case you failed to understand Lindsay Lohan’s Twitter lingo, HL stands for Heath Ledger and Matty is short for Matilda, Heath’s daughter. And L? That stands for Lindsay, of course!
It’s interesting to see Matilda mentioned in Lindsay’s post, seeing as she’s Michelle Williams’ daughter. Heath had split up with Michelle already in September 2007, so if rumors of a Lohan-Ledger relationship are true, the relationship would not have necessarily involved cheating on Matilda’s mom. We’re not going to read too much into the tweet but we do find the word choice a bit strange.
