From the department of not-so-shocking news: An insurance company is trying like crazy to find a loophole to avoid paying a hefty settlement. The kicker: It's Heath Ledger's policy.
Just days after the late actor's father confirmed that the whole of Ledger's estate would be going, without challenge, to 2-year-old daughter Matilda Rose comes word that the ReliaStar Life Insurance Company is doing everything it can to make said estate worth $10 million less.
The company is allegedly refusing to pay out Ledger's eight-figure life insurance policy on the grounds that his death could have been a suicide.
This, of course, despite the fact that the New York Medical Examiner's Office ruled the death accidental in an official report released in February.
