Heath Ledger had six types of meds near his bed

January 24th, 2008 // 112 Comments

Here’s the latest update on the Heath Ledger situation. The $20 bill was clean and now it’s being reported that any drugs found at the scene were prescription drugs specifically for Heath, according to the AP:

There were six different types of prescription drugs in the room, including pills to treat insomnia and anxiety, and an antihistamine, according to two law enforcement officials who spoke on condition of anonymity because the investigation is ongoing.

All respect to Heath, I’m going to go out on a limb here and say it probably wasn’t a good idea to mix all those. Then again, what do I know? I still take Flintstones Vitamins. Time to get my Dino on…

superficial

  1. why

    whats up with his cubed forhead?

  2. sb

    please be nice about heath, it’s awfully sad…

  3. daffy

    Just a good ol fashioned joint would’ve helped his insomnia.

    Sounds like a mistake rather than suicide.

    BTW his Joker kicks Jacks out of the park.

    Just because they found the drugs doesn’t mean he took them all at once. I read for a credible news source that by “scattered” they meant there were bottles that were mostly full throughout the apartment (like in medicine cabinets). And Superficial….you are so much better than TMZ. You don’t take yourself seriously and think you’re an actual news source. You know what you are…GOSSIP.

    Sorry to hear that. BTW, did you ever posted your profile to a celebrity and millioniare dating site called BillionaireCupid.com? I just saw your profile yesterday on that site.

    Unless his body was oddly and/or particularly sensitive to those chemicals, I can’t see how that RX stuff could kill him, if taken pretty much according to direction.

    Hell… I’ve taken pretty much all of those pills, mixed with booze and other stuff and am still here to type about it.

    Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

  8. Kristy McNichols

    maybe his heart just kept slowing down until it stopped. All in all, at least a painless way to die. I keep thinking about the autopsy. You know, they crack your chest open for those… icky.

Oh, and my theory is that Jack Nicholson put a voodoo curse on Heath because he was mad about the Joker role. Like, the evil eye, but maybe too strong this time, jack…

    I think I’ll hibernate like a turtle this weekend, get a few flats of beer, rent “Brokeback Mountain”, lie back and just let the experience take me wherever it goes. know what I’m sayin’?

    It’ll be kinda like my own personal way o’ mourning…

  11. CougarTexas

    Ya’ll, leave this guy alone. This is a real tragedy. Yeah, I know, wah wah, poor rich actor- you cynical bastards and bitches. But think about the travel schedule and different timezones on different continents and what that can do to your brain and body. He just didn’t deal well.

    I feel sad about this.

    11th fuckers.

  12. D. Richards (Saint.)

    Yes, I know.

    The first drug was for hemorrhoids. Heath was notorious for his rhoids.

    The second, Tylenol, he had a headache. Third, was for the canker sore he couldn’t get rid of. Fourth, a little marijuana, no big deal. Fifth, sleeping pills to help with jetlag.

    And sixth, and I think this may have been what did him in: Heroin! Works everytime.

  13. I hear the toxic ‘script combo was donated by the Topeka’s Westboro Baptist church. Those wiley bastards.

  14. D. Richards (Muff.)

    Yeah, #11. Traveling kills. It’s not drugs, or lifestyle. It’s different time zones.

    Too bad they already autopsified Heath’s broken body; cause of death — Traveling.

  15. fergernauster

    Those TMZ bastards are streaming live video outside of the funeral chapel in NY where Ledger’s body lies. Viewings are expected today.

    How long before we see the hooded, puffy-eyed & bloated figure of John Travolta bolting inside?

  16. fergernauster

    Whoa… there are some really hot women in NYC…

  17. my comment

    I’m having a hard time mustering up a whole lot of sympathy for this one. 28 years old, a father and doped up on all kinds of anxiety and sleep pills. Stop taking pills people! If you’re weak and can’t deal with life [that's right, I said it! It's not 'stress', it's called LIFE and it is SUPPOSED to be hard!] then just smoke weed. It won’t kill you.

    His little girl will go through life without a father, now that’s the part that I feel bad about. She doesn’t deserve this.

  18. I hate the masseuse.

    So the bottles were found to be mostly full.
    thr masseuse waited 45 min to call 911.
    she called mary-kate olsen 2 times before that.
    he prob could have lived if his masseuse wasn’t so stupid.

    He had an appointment that day for massage, and was meeting a director the next day, told the director to give him an AM wakeup call.

    Doesn’t sound that much like suicide to me.

    Maybe if the masseuse had called 911 first, he would still be alive.

    Oh, and the interview with him saying he could die started out with someone asking him about his daughter, and he was saying if he died she could carry on his name.

    I don’t think he planned to kill himself. but we will see.

  19. The Sampan Man

    Jesus, even Skanky Ang thinks that’s a bit too many drugs……and that bitch BLEEDS coedine.

    Why is it that every death of a famous person has to have a story behind it? He’s dead. Deal with it. In Australia every second news story is about some new snippet of his life. We all know he is dead, so lets all f*#k off and leave his family to grieve.

  21. Papahotnuts

    Did you guys see any of his movies? He should’ve taken a bottle of fucking acting pills. Big- headed queer.

  23. 11–The only tragedy here is that he didn’t go on a shooting rampage taking you and all the other jackasses who’s hearts bleed for people you don’t know prior to his last breath.

    Apologies for the repeat post. The net is still slow down under.

  26. fergernauster

    #17… I can’t smoke weed. Unfortunately, it affects me very adversely. It’s only booze ‘n sedation medication for me!

    And I take issue with your synopsis of “neurotic” people as weak. Because many of them are gentle and feeling souls who merely see through the flimsy fog of superficial pretense to view the harsh reality that is life, does not necessarily render them “weak”.

  27. Now who stuck their fist up my twat?

  28. Signey, M.D.

    Why did he need 6 different types of anti-pussiness medication?

    Oh yeah…it was Heath Ledger.

  29. OH, OH …
    I feel so sad… I like him very much! I have collected all his movies. If you want to share it,find me on bbwconnect.com.Come on!

  30. This story is about as rotten as Heath will be in a couple days.

  31. The Sampan Man

    26–I’ll tell ya what’s weak…..the majority of the “humor” in these comments. Jesus….I’ve heard pleas for mercy funnier than this………

  32. Sid

    “Because many of them are gentle and feeling souls who merely see through the flimsy fog of superficial pretense to view the harsh reality that is life, does not necessarily render them “weak”.”

    my wrist bones actually became a little floppy while reading that

  33. Papahotnuts

    He should have The Patriot to cure his insomnia. It worked for me.

  34. Yes yes, # 31, I agree. The COMMENTERS are about as rotten as HEath will be in a couple days.

  35. @27 That was me Lady Jane..

  36. wah wah wah wah

    wah wah wah wah Heath is dead wah wah wah wah Heath was like a brother to me wah wah wah wah people are being mean about brother Heath wah wah wah wah it’s not funny wah wah wah wah

    grow gonads

  37. FCS

    Sounds like he may have been dating Courtney Love to me.

  38. fergernauster

    What I REALLY want to discuss now in depth is Britney’s bi-polarity…

    Hee heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

  39. D. Richards (Stain.)

    #23? Are you fucking serious? I’m a bleeding heart? Right.. You come to Superficial much?

    You’re a fucking moron, baby. ‘Sampan’, right? Maybe you could go on a shooting spree in the name of Heath Ledger. It’d be fun! You’d look, and be just like your friend, Cho Seung-Hui; the Virginia Tech killer.

  40. fergernauster

    What’s Britney up to today?

  41. BaconMessiah

    #31 Oh yeah and your a fucking laugh riot. Pls stop, oh great arbiter of humour, my sides hurt.

  42. Oh well

    Atleast heath was rich and had lots of money to contribute to taxes with, and he had a lovely jaw line.
    More people will care about his death than any of your deaths.

    Papahotnuts – it would be cool if you died soon and your ashes were scattered around a glory hole.

  43. BaconMessiah, I got sumthin’ for yah. It’s not a bouquet of roses either you stupid cunt.

  44. Wow… this place stinks worse than an overrated actor in body bag.

  45. Have some respect for the man’s work.

  46. #21 – I disagree… his movies made me explore my more sensitive side… I’ve cut down beating my kids to twice a week now, and I realize how much it hurts my calloused hands.

    And am I the only one to say Ha hmmmmmm to his “friendship” with the 12 year old boy looking Oslen? NAMBLA mo’fuckas…

  47. Too Soon?

    Heath misunderstood Jack Nicholson’s advice and tried methadone acting.

  48. #39 – Your comment was actually #12, not #11. CougarTexas Melloncamp was #11. I’m sure Sampan knows Cho quite well.

  49. BaconMessiah

    #43 oh goody what is it, a picture of your prolapsed colon?

  50. fergernauster

    #42… “a lovely jawline”, indeed; however, the nose was a little flat and unsculpted, wasn’t it? A bit like an ABC-wad of “Juicy Fruit”. Ah, well. N’er mind. He WAS, by most accounts, a very handsome pup.
