All the details on Brittany’s sudden and tragic passing

Brittany Murphy died at 10:04 a.m. this morning, according to a spokesperson from the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. The Los Angeles Fire Department received and responded to a call at 8 a.m. from the home of Brittany’s husband, screenwriter Simon Monjack.

Los Angeles police officer Norma Eisenman says a full investigation is being launched to determine the cause of Brittany’s death, and investigators have already been sent to the actress’ West Hollywood home.

TMZ reports that Brittany was found unconscious in the shower by her mother, Sharon Murphy. Paramedics arrived and administered CPR as soon as it was that determined Brittany was in full cardiac arrest. She was then taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead.

In a statement, Brittany’s rep tells HollywoodLife.com: “In this time of sadness, the family thanks you for your love and support. It is their wish that you respect their privacy.”

The only way her husband did it is if he was the one not letting her eat.

steve o is so right. you can’t take 5 minutes to check on your pathetic and senseless advertisements before posting the news?

are you afraid of not having enough money to pay for one of your fancy meals?.

you are pathetic and sad as journalists.

I am shocked by this and saddened, of course, but I am also shocked that an ad would appear beside this news that reads “dropdead look of the day”. Come on, people! Where is the decency and sensitivity?

That is so, so sad. What is this world coming to? Her nasty husband with the awful hair plugs must have had something to do with her death…
