Simon Monjack Found Dead; Due For Heart Bypass
A spokesperson for Simon Monjack, Brittany Murphy’s mother Sharon, and the Brittany Murphy Foundation released a statement today saying, “Simon needed a heart bypass. I was told he needed a bypass, and I said to him, ‘Simon, you have so much going on, let’s keep you healthy.’ I said, ‘You want to be healthy. Don’t you?’ He said yes, but he said, ‘The bypass can wait.’ ” Linda Monjack, Simon’s mother, reported Simon had a history of health issues. She said her son was “unwell” and that he suffered a slight heart attack about a week before Brittany Murphy’s death. Investigations revealed there was no foul play in either death, however a plethora of prescription drugs filled the couple’s home.
An inside source reported, “Brittany’s mom and Simon stayed in the same house together after Brittany passed. I don’t think either one could handle moving on yet. Her death was sudden, and coming to grips with it was taking time. Her mom was her best friend, and she is still grieving. Sharon Murphy may handle Simon’s arrangements. He did want to be close to Brittany forever and he could be buried near her at Forest Lawn in the Hollywood Hills.”
Brittany Murphy and Simon Monjack were married in 2007. Brittany Murphy died of complications from pneumonia and anemia on December 20, 2009. Before Brittany’s death they were planning a move to NYC to start a family. At his wife’s funeral, a visibly emotional Simon Monjack talked about their relationship and called Brittany his best friend and soul mate.
