Brittany Murphy husband, Simon Monjack found dead in same Hollywood house – only 5 months later – now things are getting strange.

British screenwriter, and husband of Brittany Murphy – Simon Monjack was found dead Sunday (June 23, 2010) night at his Rising Glen Road mansion in the Hollywood hills.

Monjack, 39, was pronounced dead after the Los Angeles Fire Department was called at 9:40 p.m. to the home for a medical emergency. Brittany’s mother, Sharon Murphy, reportedly lived in the home with Monjack, and according to a CNN report, it was Sharon who found the unconscious Monjack in his bedroom and called for help on Sunday night.

Brittany Murphy, 32, Simons Murphy, his wife of less than three years, died five months ago in December from a combination of pneumonia, an iron deficiency and multiple drug intoxication, a coroner said. The drugs involved were legal and used to treat a respiratory infection, according to an autopsy. See my blog report on it:

Now Brittany’s husband Simon Monjack is dead, too. And, yet again, reports have surfaced that there were significant amounts of prescription medications in the house. “We’re not sure if it is natural causes or a possible accident, maybe because of the prescription medication found there,” Ed Winter, the assistant chief coroner in L.A., told People magazine on Monday.
“We concluded there no signs of foul play or any criminal activity involved,” Sgt. Alex Ortiz, another police spokesman, told the AP.

A Monjack family spokesman, meanwhile, told the magazine that Simon was due for a heart bypass operation in the near future. “I don’t believe he had an overdose,” the spokesman said. “If you have a heart condition, you’re going to have prescription medication for yourself. You’re going to be on some kind of medicine.”

At the time of his death, Monjack, a Brit, was known in Hollywood as a sometime director, with a history of messy romantic entanglements, bad debt, and other legal trouble.
Monjack was outspoken about his grief following Murphy’s December death. He described how he had lost his “best friend and soul mate” as the “Clueless” and “Girl, Interrupted” star was laid to rest at Forest Lawn Memorial Park on Christmas Eve.

Celebrity drug addicts, and those who supply them with drugs, have all sorts of ways to try and convince people that they are sober individuals, with no connections to illicit substances. Simon’s death is now amid a torrent of speculation that he and his deceased wife Brittany Murphy had had problems with cocaine and prescription medications.

When his wife died in December, there were pill bottles lying all around the house. But Monjack had explanations: She was hypoglycemic; he had heart problems and survived oral cancer.

However the Murphy’s died – the fact is that both are now dead. A tragic end to a wonderful actress and her husband, both who died way to early in their lives.

For me, it is still a question whether these deaths are just another sad Hollywood drug related death story, or just a strange set of co-incidents…

Brittany Murphy’s Cause Of Death – Pneumonia

Brittany Murphy's Cause Of Death - Pneumonia

I’m a big Brittany Murphy fan, and was shocked to hear about her sudden and tragic death. Now, we find out from  the Los Angeles County coroner’s office that her death was accidental. It seems that Brittany Murphy died from pneumonia, but anemia and prescription drugs also played a role in her death.

According to the Los Angeles County coroner’s office. The primary cause of death was community-acquired pneumonia, with contributing factors of iron deficiency anemia and “multiple drug intoxication.”

Poor Brittany died Dec. 20 at age 32 after collapsing at her Hollywood Hills home. Her mother and husband have said the actress didn’t abuse prescription medications or have an eating disorder.

Details about the drugs the “Clueless” and “8 Mile” star had in her system will be released in several weeks when a complete report is done. LA Coroner’s spokesman Craig Harvey declined to detail what types of drugs were involved but said they “were all prescription medications” which could have been perscribed to her, or not.

Pneumonia seems to fit, because both Murphy’s husband (Simon Monjack), and mother (Sharon Murphy), told investigators the actress had been experiencing flu-like symptoms in the days before she died.

Simon Monjack told The Associated Press last month that his wife did take several prescriptions, including an anti-seizure drug, but did not abuse the medications.

Whatever … to take a line from Clueless. It will not bring this great talent back, bless her and her family.
