The heartbroken husband of deceased actress Brittany Murphy opened up about the actresses last minutes of life in a recent interview with The Daily Beast.  

Brittany’s widow Simon Monjack told the site that she had gone to the bathroom around 8 am, and was in there for a while.  “That was her comfort zone.  It was the only Brittany-size room [in the house].”  When Brittany’s mother went in, Brittany was laying on the floor unconscious.

“I came running in. I immediately started doing CPR. I felt a tiny heart beat. I was pushing with the heel of my hand. And every second I pushed, I felt my hand become stronger and her heart weaker. And then it stopped. And I kept pushing. She died in my arms. I knew she was dead.”

How heart-wrenching! Simon insists that Brittany spiraled into depression and exhaustion after Warner Brothers fired her from a sequel to Happy Feet last December. “They killed her,” Simon says, claiming she suffered a heart attack from the stress caused by the studio canceling her contract two weeks before her death. “She was devastated.”

“I hope no one ever has to go through what I did,” he adds.  “To lose the love of your life in front of your eyes. It was all a surreal nightmare.”

It is pretty impossible for your heart not to go out Simon after reading this.  But some still suspect that drugs were involved with her death.  What do you think?
