Scoop: Mary-Kate had ‘nothing to do with’ Heath’s drugs

Mary-Kate Olsen is battling tabloid talk about her role in Heath Ledger’s death. In light of the revelation that, as Scoop! told you Tuesday, the pint-size actress is seeking immunity before speaking with federal prosecutors investigating his January prescription drug overdose, her attorney issued a statement saying, “Despite tabloid speculation, Mary-Kate Olsen had nothing whatsoever to do with the drugs found in Heath Ledger’s home or his body, and she does not know where he obtained them.”

“Regarding the government’s investigation, at Ms. Olsen’s request, we have provided the government with relevant information including facts in the chronology of events surrounding Mr. Ledger’s death and the fact that Ms. Olsen does not know the source of the drugs Mr. Ledger consumed,” the statement continues. (Reports claimed that M-K had refused to be interviewed.)

The attorney concludes by calling media accounts of the investigation “incomplete and inaccurate.”

Well, that settles that. (We don’t argue with extremely wealthy people’s attorneys.)

Miller time over?

Has Sienna Miller been dumped by her married beau? According to a report in the U.K.’s Daily Mail, the blond beauty is desperate to win back actor and oil heir Balthazar Getty, who in turn is desperate to win back wife Rosetta after his affair. Oh, the tangled web celebs weave!

After photos of him canoodling with a topless Sienna surfaced, Balthazar issued a statement saying he and his wife had separated. But some reports claimed that was news to Rosetta, the mother of his four children.

Now, a “devastated” Sienna is said to be blowing up Balthazar’s cell phone, to no avail. A source explained to the Mail that he took off for L.A., where he is “desperately trying to get back with his wife.”

“He realizes he’s made a terrible mistake,” says the source. “He is trying to keep Sienna at arm’s length and hasn’t told her it is over yet, so she is going frantic. She has been calling and texting him constantly and is planning to go to L.A. herself as she believes she can win him back if they have a face-to-face meeting.”

Sienna, did you not catch that “mother of his four children” part? Move on and find a new man!

Miami heat

They may not have confirmed they’re a couple, but Lindsay Lohan and Samantha Ronson “aren’t hiding their affection at all,” an observer who saw the two in Miami tells People. The actress and the DJ were in town to see Sam’s family and spent Monday afternoon chilling at the Delano Hotel’s pool with the Ronson bunch.

“Lindsay and Sam were very comfortable with the group around,” another eyewitness confided. “You can tell they’re so in love. Lindsay seemed to really fit in. It seemed like everyone really likes her.”

The two were also cozy at another family reunion — Sam’s brother Mark’s DJ gig at the Hard Rock Hotel Chicago, reports the New York Daily News. While he spun, S.Ro was “constantly texting with Lindsay, even though Lindsay was seated on the stage near her,” an onlooker told the paper. “They’d text and giggle and just stare at each other.” Ah, young friendship.
