Aussie actor Heath Ledger, star of the gay romance movie "Brokeback Mountain", suffered from depression, insomnia and addiction, according to reports from Australian newspapers The Courier-Mail and the Herald Sun.
A source interviewed by the Herald Sun said, "Heath was shattered by his split from Michelle. He became a recluse. He barely slept. He was dealing with terrible mood swings."
"He adored his daughter, Matilda", said the source, "and when Michelle called it quits he missed Matilda so much that he was thrown into a deep, dark depression."
The Courier-Mail reported that he had spent several days at a drug rehab clinic battling an addiction to heroin following his split with fiancee Michelle Williams in September.
In November he had told an interviewer that he suffered from insomnia and was regularly taking Ambien sleeping pills.
Ledger was found naked and unconscious in his Manhattan apartment on January 23. Paramedics were unable to revive him and he was later pronounced dead.
Police said his death was possibly due to either an accidental overdose or suicide. Several different prescription anti-anxiety and sleeping pills were found in the star's bedroom, however, no obvious signs of suicide, like a suicide note, were found at the scene.
