A new lawsuit claims Heath Ledger was set up by two photographers who secretly filmed the late actor taking cocaine in a L.A. hotel room, imdb.com reports.
In legal documents filed by an unnamed woman in Los Angeles Superior Court, two Splash News paparazzi stand accused of luring Ledger to her hotel room in January 2006. Eric Munn and Darren Banks allegedly then gave cocaine to the actor while secretly videotaping him. Ledger spotted he was being filmed and became angry, at which point he was promised the tape would be destroyed.
It wasn’t, and a segment of it was screened on Entertainment Tonight after his death from an accidental prescription drugs overdose in January. Munn, Banks and Splash News managing partner Gary Morgan are being sued for fraud, negligence, trespassing and infliction of emotional distress.
