Brittany Murphy Fired, Simon Monjack Hospitalized

by at . Comments

According to reports, Brittany Murphy was fired from an upcoming film that was shooting in Puerto Rico for being difficult on set and a detriment to production.

We're not sure which film, but Murphy's IMDB profile indicates that this film may have been The Caller, which also stars True Blood cast member Stephen Moyer.

It took about 15 seconds for Brittany to be replaced, too. Twilight and New Moon star Rachelle Lefevre reportedly hopped on a plane as soon as Murphy was out.

A source also says that Brittany was so pissed about getting booted from the film that she didn't want to leave Puerto Rico and had "plans to sabotage the film."

That would qualify her as a Grade A nut job.

Not a good weekend for Brittany Murphy. Or Simon Monjack.

The really interesting part of Brittany's movie set ouster was that the weird British con-artist she married in 2007, Simon Monjack, got into a fight with some locals.

Could there be a connection between the whole Puerto Rico incident and Monjack arriving at LAX airport "incoherent" and having to be hospitalized Saturday?

Murphy thought that Simon Monjack was having an asthma attack, but medical personnel boarding the plane evidently felt it might be even more serious.

Con-jack was released from the hospital last night and even picked up some burgers before heading home, but it makes you wonder ... burgers? Really Simon?!

Why do so many assume it's drugs, such as cocaine? It could be meth. It could be diet related, maybe poor eating habits are to blame. It could be diet pills, it could be anorexia or bulimia, and maybe it could be stress. It could be many things. No one knows yet, the LAPD and the medical examiner haven't released any additional info, so don't be so quick to assume or jump to conclusions. It's bad enough that the poor girl passed away. Give it and her family a rest.

It is very sad to hear that Britney has passed away today. I hope her family and friends can cope with this tragic loss durring the holiday season. I cant even imagine how they all feel. As for her husband I do say he looks a bit on the weirdo side. I unfortunatly have a feeling its going to be drug (cocaine) related just like Heath Ledgers death. Its sad to see such a beautiful girl wasted away like that.

Brittany, So very beautiful and too young to leave this world. The Holiday season is really started to Blow Chuncks. Her Husband seems like another sleezeball to add to the collection of Great Humanitarians I.E. Tiger Woods The FLA. daughter killer and JOE JACKSON The Godfather of Child Pimping.......
It will undoubtably be Drug related or Foul Play. Brittany I am so sorry you got tangled up in the Hollyweird Seazedpool and drowned.

John, Heroin causes respiratory depression, not cardiac. Either it was the combo of drugs with her anorexia a stimulant, or poorly cut heroin - but no, a heroin OD by itself would not cause cardiac failure.

FYI: It was a heroin OD - Same thing thing Simon suffered from on the airplane!
