Mary-Kate Olsen has been subpoenaed by federal investigators who are probing the mysterious drug death of Heath Ledger. Apparently, the feds want to question the Olsen twin about how Ledger obtained the painkillers that were part of a lethal cocktail of oxycodone and hydrocodone that led to his untimely and accidental death in January.
However, the actress and fashion mogul is keeping mum. Her lawyer Michael C. Miller has twice refused officials and their requests to chat with his client about the circumstances of Ledger's death, insisting that MK knows nothing about how Ledger got the drugs, which investigators think may have been illegally obtained through false prescriptions. The lawyer also said the Olsen twin will not speak with the Drug Enforcement Administration unless she is promised immunity. Olsen and Ledger were friends at the time of his death, and Olsen made headlines when it was revealed that Ledger's masseuse immediately and frantically phoned Olsen after finding his lifeless body in a Manhattan apartment.
Authorities were granted a subpoena that may force Olsen to go before the grand jury if negotiations with her and her lawyer stall.
