However, a source told People that the two were set up by Williams’ 14-year-old daughter, Matilda, from her first marriage to the late Heath Ledger. She was also briefly married to Mount Eerie frontman Phil Elverum in 2018 before splitting earlier this year.
Williams has previously spoken about finding love after Ledger’s death in 2008, telling Vanity Fair in 2018 that she “never gave up on love”.
“I always say to Matilda,’Your dad loved me before anybody thought I was talented, or pretty, or had nice clothes,” she told the magazine.
She added that while she preferred to keep her personal life private, she wanted to help others on the same journey.
“Don’t settle. Don’t settle for something that feels like a prison or is hard, or hurts you. If it doesn’t feel like love, it’s not love.”
