Mary-Kate Olsen’s lawyers released a statement this afternoon regarding this morning’s tabloid reports that M-K was asking for immunity before talking to the Feds. They don’t actually deny that part, but they are adamant about the fact that, as Serena van der Woodsen didn’t know about where Peter the Dead Guy got the coke he OD’d on, M-K knows not where Ledger got his Oxycontin.

Despite tabloid speculation, Mary-Kate Olsen had nothing whatsoever to do with the drugs found in Heath Ledger’s home or his body, and she does not know where he obtained them.

Regarding the Government’s investigation, at Ms. Olsen’s request, we have provided the Government with relevant information including facts in the chronology of events surrounding Mr. Ledger’s death and the fact that Ms. Olsen does not know the source of the drugs Mr. Ledger consumed.

Wait a second: Do these guys think that saying the media reports are “incomplete and inaccurate” is going to make speculation cease? He should have just said, “Mary-Kate isn’t hiding anything; how can she? She’s too skinny.” That would have shut ‘em up.
