Secret’s Out! Simon Monjack Had Two Children


Brittany Murphy‘s husband, Simon Monjack, had a secret that he carried to the grave.  A laptop has unearthed evidence that Monjack had two children! Simon’s mother, brother and therapist stayed at Simon’s home last week with Sharon MurphyBrittany Murphy‘s mom – and apparently took the laptop when they left.

While going through the computer’s files, they found emails from two women who wanted money from Monjack for child support.  It seems he had a son by one woman and a daughter by another. Files for wire transfers for chunks of money were also found, as  large as $ 48,000 in one go. He was also sending cash to lawyers, as well as to somebody in Europe for some sort of settlement deal. It just gets more and more mysterious. (And sad. And creepy.)

Simon’s immediate family strongly felt the coroner should have the computer and handed it over, and the office is currently reviewing the contents. Sharon has angrily filed a theft report with the police.

Cause Of Brittany Murphy’s Death Revealed: Drugs, Pneumonia

Brittany Murphy

The L.A. County coroner ruled today that Brittany Murphy‘s death was accidental, according to TMZ. The cause is listed as “community acquired pneumonia, iron deficiency anemia, and multiple drug intoxication”—a lethal mix of untreated illnesses, tragically coupled with over-the-counter self-medication.

Despite the role chemicals played in Murphy’s passing, the news doesn’t directly contradict widower Simon Monjack and mother Sharon Murphy‘s denials that Brittany was addicted to drugs or alcohol. “Everyone used to say she was wasted, she was this, she was that,” the elder Murphy told People. It was hard for anyone to imagine that somebody was so high on life.” Monjack, who has faced intense scrutiny following his wife’s death, recently claimed that the majority of prescription drugs found in their home belonged to him. Murphy was 32.

Brittany Murphy’s Husband Denies Murder Rumors, Plans Expensive Charity Event

Simon Monjack & Brittany Murphy

For someone who denies being a “con artist,” Simon Monjack sure finds innovative ways to get his hands on people’s money. Brittany Murphy‘s widower, who plans to sue Warner Bros. for “killing” his wife by dropping her from the cast of Happy Feet 2, has announced a charity event in her honor, with tickets reportedly running $1,000 a person, and $10,000 per corporation.  The money will go towards the Brittany Murphy Foundation—which Monjack happens to run—and some are smelling a rat. “He’s gotten away with so much,” a source told Us Magazine. “He thinks he can get away with this.” Said another, “everyone thinks it’s very tacky that he is making it so much about money.”

Though Monjack has yet to respond to the insinuation, he’s busy denying far more serious charges. “It’s just so absurd. Why would I kill my wife? [The rumors are] kind of just weird, very, very weird,” he told the UK’s Daily Mirror, responding to rumors of criminal negligence on his part—or worse—after he tried to keep Murphy from undergoing an autopsy. Referring to the large amount of prescription drugs found in their home, he admitted she took some painkillers and anti-depressants but “Most of the drugs are mine. I suffer from seizures. I had a heart attack ­coming back from Puerto Rico last year.” The cause of Murphy’s death is pending the coroner’s results, expected within the next month.
