Brittany Murphy, Simon Monjack Secretly Tie the Knot!

by at . Comments

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.

Mr. & Mrs. Monjack

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.

Simon himself boasts of having been married and having a "beautiful" daughter. You are obviously NOT a close friend as you cannot have known him for years as others have, nor his lurid actions.

Run, Brittany, Run! We all hope you did not give him access to your credit cards and to your bank accounts! It is all reversable, act fast and hire the best attorney around to get rid of the lying cheating bastard. He does not know that meaning of love, He is a beast that only tries to save himself at any cost. Get in touch with his ex wife and children if you need advice ...or put out a plea on the web, many women (and men) will reach out to help you and share their horrific Monjack stories with you. You are not alone.

Is there anything we can do to stop this Evil person? There must be some way to get him in the press and warn Brittany. It is not too late to stop him, he may not yet have Power of Attorney over all her assets. Any thoughts? Too many innocent people have been hurt by this freak of nature!
I hope she does not get pregnant and have to deal with him for the rest of her life~!

Simon Monjack, still pulling a fast one. Now he has the money he has always desired. Brittany's. Didn't her people check him out? Poor thing, she is the next victim and he is smiling his usual manipulative smile. I hope she has very good attorneys. She will need them. Tragic.

Simon Monjack is a tremendous con artist, sociopath and thief. It is amazing that he is still on the loose and not in jail! He has conned many women into giving him money, changed his phone number all the time (pretending he was important), he somehow lost his family's money on the truly horrific film "Two Days Nine Lives", and has been scrambling to catch a wealthy or at least connected women to open doors for him.
He has been married before. He tried to attach himself to Alexandra Kerry at the Cannes Film Festival a few years ago (luckily the Secret Service must have checked him out asap). He was labled a "slick talking promoter with a dubious background". He keeps claiming he has family money, a wealthy partner's money, etc…but in reality he has nothing. If anyone knows Brittany's Management, they should send advice: have background check done on Monjack…his past is so ugly it is not even funny…he was also bankrupt in the UK…it goes on and on.

Simon is a con artist. He conned his last girlfriend out of her car and money. Left her with awful credit. Frequently uses different SS #'s. He left his other girlfriend in London with a $20,000 credit card bill she was unaware of until he was long gone. He is a master at lying. Brittany BEWARE!!!
