We're used to people with the name Britney hooking up with random dudes and getting married a lot. But usually it's Britney Spears doing the deed.
The Gossip was thrown for a loop when it learned Brittany Murphy recently married screenwriter Simon Monjack, which Us Weekly reported this morning.
We were pretty clueless about these surprise nuptials, if you know what we're saying. We're saying Brittany Murphy starred in the movie Clueless back in 1995.
The 29-year-old actress, who called off an an engagement to another man (Joe Macaluso) just over eight months ago, was spotted partying with Simon Monjack at the Playboy event at the Kentucky Derby on Saturday.
They were both wearing wedding rings.
"[Murphy and Simon Monjack] were drinking Crown Royal, and [they] didn't want photographers to take pictures of their rings because they were waiting to make a formal announcement on Monday."
Monjack's recent writing credits include Factory Girl, which features a nude Sienna Miller.
The source adds, "They were dancing in the V.I.P. section and around DJ Reach's booth. They looked very excited, happy and jovial."
This is the first marriage for Brittany Murphy, who also briefly dated Ashton Kutcher.
We can only guess how this must have shocked their families. With any marriage, you expect a period in which the parents can get to know their future in-laws, like with Kanye West's mom and Alexis Phifer.
