Sharon Murphy finally breaks her silence! In an open letter, she discusses the devastating news of her daughter’s alleged murder reports by Brittany’s estranged father, who ‘claims’ their daughter was poisoned. ‘His claims are based on the most flimsy of evidence,’ writes Sharon for The Hollywood Reporter.
Sharon Murphy shoots down poison claims of her daughter, Brittany Murphy‘s passing which was four years ago. Though she’s still mourning her daughter, Sharon deemed it necessary to set the record straight once and for all.
Prescription drugs were found in his system, but the dosage was not lethal.
Two months after British screenwriter Simon Monjack, 40, was found dead in his Hollywood home May 23, coroners have finally determined the cause of his death — acute pneumonia and severe anemia. Ironically, his wife Brittany Murphy died of the same causes in Dec. 2009.
Wow, can you believe this? Brittany left her mama everything, while husband Simon Monjack got nada!
Wow, this is some kind of crazy. Before her death, Brittany Murphy was closer to her mother, Sharon Murphy, and husband Simon Monjack, more than anyone in the world. Curiously, however, the actress left everything to her mom and nothing to her hubby, reports TMZ.
The actress, who died Dec. 20 2009 at the age of 32, left a handwritten will in her manager’s safe. Additionally, she had a drafted a more formal letter after she married Simon in May, 2007. In this version Simon, 40, agreed to be excluded from the will. Brittany wrote, “I am married to Simon Monjack who I have intentionally left out of this will.”
Multiple prescription drugs were found in Brittany’s system at the time of her death.
The Los Angeles Coroner’s Office released actress Brittany Murphy’s full autopsy report Feb. 25 and the new information reveals her death was an accident and her system was full of prescription drugs.
Radaronline.com gave a breakdown of what drugs were listed in Brittany’s autopsy report. Propranolol, Hydrocodone, Phenazopyridine, Fluoxetine, Dextromethorphan, Chlorpheniramine were in her stomach and while there were methamphetamines in her urine and in her blood/heart.Read more
Reports say Brittany Murphy could have lived had she gotten help sooner, but her husband is surprised by coroner’s results.
Simon Monjack has spoken out after the L.A. County Coroner released details of the cause of his wife Brittany Murphy‘s death on Dec. 20 and he claims he and his mother didn’t take her to the hospital — even though she was suffering from pneumonia — because she was “not that ill” the day she died.
“Everything [surprised me and Brittany’s mom about the report],” he told People on Feb. 3, “I expected [the cause of death] to be her heart.” The reports says Brittany, 32, died from pneumonia, with multiple drug intoxication with “iron deficiency anemia” contributing to her death. Had Brittany gone to the doctor, the coroner says her life could have been saved.
Brittany Murphy’s grief-stricken mom and husband appeared on “Larry King Live” last night to talk about her tragic death — and they weren’t entirely lucid.
The late Brittany Murphy’s husband, Simon Monjack, and mom, Sharon Murphy, appeared on “Larry King Live” Jan. 20, discussing Brittany’s tragic death one month ago on Dec. 20, at age 32.
The pair discussed the details of her death, repeating their claim that the young actress died of natural causes, that she did not do drugs or have an eating disorder. The autopsy performed just after her death was inconclusive, and the toxicology and tissue test results have not come back yet.
Losing a loved one suddenly, at such a young age, is a horrible tragedy, and we can’t imagine how terribly sad the two must feel. That said, the two seemed distant and their responses to King’s questions weren’t always 100% rational. Read more
Could you miss the funeral of someone you loved so much?
Brittany Murphy will be laid to rest tonight during a private funeral at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in the Hollywood Hills, but there’s one family member who says he won’t be attending — Brittany’s estranged father, Angelo Bertolotti. He tells Radar Online he never received an invitation to the ceremony, and even if he did, he would probably be too sad to go. “I just don’t want to see that happen,” he says. “I just want to remember her alive.” Read more
Could a cocktail of prescription medications have caused Brittany’s death?
An investigator’s report from the L.A. County Coroner’s office revealed a shocking account of Brittany Murphy’s last moments – and the unnatural amount of prescription drugs found at her house.
Brittany “had been complaining of shortness of breath and severe abdominal pain” for 7 to 10 days before her death, reports TMZ, but attributed the pain to menstrual cramps. According to the notes, from LA Investigator Blacklock, Brittany went into the bathroom on Sunday morning, shut the door and never came out. An hour later, her mother, Sharon, went to check on her and “discovered the decedent lying on the floor unresponsive.” Brittany’s husband, Simon Monjack, heard her mother’s screams, went to help and called 911. By the time the paramedics had arrived, Brittany was “without signs of life.”
Sharon, our hearts go out to you during this unimaginably difficult time.
A few hours after her son-in-law, Simon Monjack, returned from the hospital, Brittany Murphy‘s mother, Sharon, also came back to the couple’s West Hollywood home, where she joined other family members and was spotted looking completely devastated.
“The family is very distraught,” Ed Winter, the assistant chief coroner for L.A. County, told HollywoodLife.com on Dec. 20. “They are asking for privacy and there will be no spokesperson. No one will be coming out tonight to speak [to media].”
A source tells us Simon Monjack was holed up inside the couple’s home crying and shaking his head.
Just a few hours after his wife was pronounced dead, Brittany Murphy‘s husband, Simon Monjack, was spotted returning from the hospital in his car, then later frantically pacing back and forth inside the home, a source at the scene reveals exclusively to HollywoodLife.com. At one point, he also appeared to be screaming into a phone.
While he was understandably upset, what’s really odd is the fact that he reportedly didn’t want an autopsy performed on his 32-year-old wife — a test that could answer why she died at such a young age!
