Michelle Williams worries that history will repeat itself
It’s been the shock split of the year so far.
Sources close to the 32-year-old actress say: ‘Michelle was scared of a repeat of what happened to her ex Heath Ledger [who tragically died from an accidental prescription pill overdose in 2008].
‘When they got together, Jason admitted he likes a drink.
‘Although he doesn’t have an alcohol problem, she was worried.
‘Michelle couldn’t face supporting another man through his problems.’
Michelle – who has a daughter Matilda, seven, by Heath – encouraged Jason, 33, to quit alcohol during their year-long relationship.
Last summer he revealed he was taking a break from boozing but said he wouldn’t commit to being teetotal for ever, admitting: ‘I f*cking love to drink but I’m not really capable of moderating.’
