In some extremely unexpected news, actress Brittany Murphy’s husband, Simon Monjack, was found dead in his home over the weekend, according to this report.
Murphy, the former girlfriend of Ashton Kutcher, was eventually declared dead of natural causes … although there were medications found in her system. Granted they were all prescription medications, but the fact that a woman in her early 30s could died of natural causes was hard to believe. Murphy’s heart was weakened because she suffered from an eating disorder, so that probably played into her death.
Her husband, Monjack, has died of natural causes, reports are saying. He was 39.
Murphy, known for her roles in 8 Mile and Clueless, and Monjack, a screenwriter, shared a home with Murphy’s mom, Sharon. I can’t believe how she’s feeling, losing her daughter and son in law in a five month period. At the time of Murphy’s death, Monjack said they were planning on moving to New York. Sharon should probably take that move. Or move somewhere. I can’t imagine living in the home where two people had died in less than a year.
The police ruled out foul play in Monjack’s death.
