Simon Monjack, the 39-year-old widower of actress Brittany Murphy, is found dead in his Los Angeles home!

Simon Monjack, the widowed husband of actress Brittany Murphy, was found dead in the master bedroom of his Los Angeles home Sunday evening of reported natural causes. Radar Online spoke with Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter who said, “this evening, Mr. Monjack was found unresponsive, paramedics responded to the house, he was pronounced dead at [9:45 p.m. Sunday].” This comes just 5 months after the December 20th death of wife Brittany.

While no illegal drugs were found on the scene, officers did find prescription drugs in the home – though they declined to name what they were. The preliminary cause of death is natural causes but a report will be issued following an autopsy and toxicology reports.

TMZ reports that it was Brittany’s mother, Sharon Murphy, who found Simon unconscious and called the paramedics. In an eerie twist, it was also Sharon who found her daughter Brittany unconscious and called rescue workers in December of last year.

i don’t understand how all of these prescription drug induced cardiac arrests are always initially called “natural causes”. no, i don’t have inside info, but really, does anyone doubt that’s what happened here? i guess it’s just paramedic policy, but being found dead in your bed at the age of 40 with that history, does anyone really think for one second it was ‘natural causes’ (however remotely possible that is)? i don’t know anything about this guy nor the rumors, but yes, it’s very sad. is this a particularly rough year in hollywood?

Sadly, this is the only way this story could end. He was demonized in the press before and after Ms. Murphy died. He was probably a very nice man in real life. We will never know. Celebrity is an addiction. There are thousands of celebrities and only a handful of real stars. Unfortunately, we only read about the bottom feeders these days. Celebrity deaths have been very high this year. Heaven only knows how many more will go before the end of the year.
