Movie Director Tried to Warn Brittany Murphy About Simon Monjack

by at . Comments

Brittany Murphy may have been buried on Christmas Eve, but husband Simon Monjack still can't rest in peace.

That's because new sources and reports continue to link Monjack to credit card fraud, mounting debt and visa violations, among other shady charges. The fact that he won't shut up raises a few questions for many, as well.

Take George Hickenlooper, for example.

The director, who was close to Murphy and almost cast her in the role of Edie Sedgwick in Factory Girl, said he approached the actress about her plans to marry the British screenwriter. He advised against it.

"The last thing I told Brittany is: “Do you know this guy? I mean do you really know him? Do you know what you are doing by marrying him?'" Hickenlooper said this week. "At this point, Brittany became angry and told me she knew Monjack better than anyone and then hung up on me.

"A few months later I tried to phone her to see if she was alright and Monjack would not let me speak to her."

Wife and Husband

Monjack has come under fire since his wife's death because many prescription pills were found by her bedside.

Asked about the medicine, Monjack's defense isn't exactly re-assuring.

“I know what the inference is by all those pills," he told The Daily Mail. “That she was some kind of addict, but addicts hide away their pills. They do not leave them on the nightstand like Brittany.”

That's true. Unless the addict's significant other is enabling his/her habit.

Why can't everyone stop looking for someone to blame. These people are hurting so badly from her death. Your concern is so intense with what happen to her and you do not even know her imagine how her loved ones feel and then you sit and discuss if her husband or her mother had anything to do with her death. What if it was your loved one and everyone blamed you? Does the fact that they are celebrities give us the right to cause excess pain to their families in the time of their death? No they are people to maybe the public and the media should start thinking about that.

These two were into dope right up to their eyeballs! I have serious doubts about mother, too. That aside, his track record's not looking too good. I think Brittany fell prey to the tempations that he provided her. He's bad news - as belicoso intimated, he's another Howard Stern.

I don't know if warning someone is enough. I'm sure Anna Nicole had enough warnings about Howard K. Stern and look at how that turned out. The courts need to make an example of these enabler types. When you're manipulating a celeb for your own financial gain or for the chance of financial gain (as in Stern's quest for possibly profiting from Anna's bogus estate claim against the Marshall family) there need to be consequences when the means of manipulation are so incredibly dangerous as prescription drug abuse. It's a shame that the list of celebs who died this year from basically the same cause needs to be extended seemingly every few weeks.

There is more and more coming out about this creep. If he had anything to do with her death, I hope they can nail his butt!!
