Brittany Murphy's husband says that Brittany Murphy died of a broken heart, Simon Monjack, Brittany's husband, told Larry King. Simon Monjack told Larry King, “You want to know what broke Brittany Murphy’s heart? Hollywood broke Brittany Murphy’s heart.”
“Hollywood is a village and once you upset the villagers, they talk, and they gossip, and they rumor,” Simon Monjack said. All the gossip about Brittany Murphy reportedly caused her to lose the job of voicing Gloria in Happy Feet 2 just a week before her death, Monjack claims. Not getting to reprise her role in the animated sequel allegedly upset Murphy a great deal. “They have blood on their hands,” Monjack said.
Snark Food says, "Over the years, Brittany Murphy dealt with endless rumors of drug use, especially cocaine, and was often accused of having an eating disorder due to her sometimes frail appearance. Simon Monjack and Sharon Murphy, the late starlet’s mother, have vehemently denied those rumors."
Brittany Murphy's mom said, “She had a fear of dying. She would not take too much caffeine. She wouldn’t even have a glass of champagne on New Year’s. She was just high on life, and people see that as something else I guess.”
Simon continued to defend his wife's death, on the Today Show on Thursday saying that Brittany did not take mood medication for anorexia or mental illness.
So Brittany Murphy according to her loved ones, died of a broken heart and not the prescription bottles at her bedside. HM!
Brittany Murphy died December 20, 2009.
