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.

Initially Simon, 39, and Brittany’s mother, Sharon Murphy, said they believed her death was attributed to a congenital heart murmur but where quick to slam rumors that the actress had an eating disorder or was a drug abuser. As Simon tells People, in his eyes she was “not that ill,” suggesting that he never thought her symptoms were fatal,”She wasn’t coughing up. I’ve had pneumonia and coughed up handfuls of spittle. So yeah, everything surprised us, everything.”

When asked how he feels about reports that her death was preventable, Simon responded, “I don’t know what he said so I don’t want to comment on what I haven’t seen. Case closed, as the coroner said, there’s no foul play.” made an attempt to speak with Simon at his Hollywood Hills residence, but he was unavailable for comment.

This Husband is such a dirt bag..First he said she died because of stress related to being fired from Happy Feet, and he said he was going sue the producers, the movie director etc..

NOW – He is perplexed by the findings of her death..She was abusing Narcotics, and was gravely ill. I hope her family sues the fat husband for essentially being a moron.

Too bad, she was beautiful and funny…what the hell was she doing with that fat ugly loser anyway?
