Ledger's Father To Honour Bar Investment

The father of late actor HEATH LEDGER has vowed to honour his son's commitment to invest in a trendy New York bar.
Ledger was found dead in his Manhattan apartment following an accidental overdose of prescription drugs in January (08).
Before he died, the star reportedly signed up as a silent investor in a Brooklyn drinking establishment called Five Leaves - but his untimely death "put the project in jeopardy".
But Ledger's father Kim, who is executor of the late actor's estate, has reportedly decided to honour his son's wishes and continue backing the bar.
A source tells New York Post gossip column PageSix, "(Kim) knew how much the project meant to Heath. (He) released the funds to finish construction."
