Simon Monjack Speaks on Death of Brittany Murphy

by at . Comments

Less than two days after Brittany Murphy died cardiac arrest at the age of 32, her husband Simon Monjack made his first comments about her tragic death.

"My world was destroyed yesterday," an emotional Simon told Access Hollywood. "I loved what Ashton [Kutcher] wrote on Twitter. It was comforting to me."

The message posted by Kutcher, Murphy's ex-boyfriend read, "2day the world lost a little piece of sunshine ... My deepest condolences go out 2 Brittany's family, her husband, & her amazing mother Sharon. see you on the other side kid."

Simon Monjack said that he did not know his wife's former Just Married co-star personally, but thanked Ashton, saying "I couldn't have said it better."

As far as what happened inside the actress' home Sunday, when Murphy was found unresponsive in the shower, Monjack it started as "a regular day."

"[Her mother] Sharon went in the bathroom because she had been in there a long time. Her mom screamed for me. I ran, then called 911," he said.

His world shattered after his young wife tragically passed away, a dejected Simon Monjack found comfort in the words of Brittany Murphy's ex Ashton Kutcher.

The L.A. Fire Department responded to a 911 call from the home and transported Murphy to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead.

L.A. County Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter said the actress' death "appears to be natural at this time." Murphy's autopsy results have been deferred.

With regards to reports that she was battling flu-like symptoms in recent days, Monjack said Murphy was sick, but it did not seem like anything serious.

"She had laryngitis," he said, noting that the 32-year-old had seen a doctor. "She had been tired at the end of the year. She had made a couple movies."

Monjack - who married Murphy in 2007, took exception to the idea that his wife was surrounded people (including himself) who were bad influences.

"I don't know why anyone would think that," he said.

"She found love. We found love. Brittany didn't get to where Brittany was with anyone controlling her or influencing her ... Brittany was Brittany."

Simon Monjack might call himself British, but in my book, being English , this bod is a bl..dy foreigner....immigrant. We have been exporting a lot of these types into the u.s.a. from the u.k., of recent years.

It wasn't Simon that killed her, it was Miss Peacock in the library

I thought I had seen/heard everything. None of you care about her (Brittany) as you say. She has died and all you can see or even concentrate on is her husband and what he has or has not done. People are dying everyday, yound and old. Time is winding up and people are becoming more vicious. Get your lives in order and stop trashing others. Everyone gets what is coming to them. I am sure of that!!!

If I just lost my wife I wouldn't be checking Twitter to find out what her ex-boyfriend has to say about it... Strange...

Who said young person doesn't just die for no reason. My friend, 28 years old died of a sudden heart attack while breastfeeding her baby. Her husband found her and the baby (he thought) sleeping on the couch but when he picked up the baby he said something wasn't right. She never got to hold her baby again and he is now a widower with three small children.
There was a story in our local newspaper of a 30 year old young mother who had a fatal heart attack in her car waiting in the school pickup line. Whomever says that it doesn't just happen needs to learn a little bit more about the human body because anyone can die at anytime of their life for no reason.

I'm getting really tired of hearing that a young person can't die of cardiac arrest. When I was in 10th grade a good friend of mine was playing basketball and he just fell over and died. He just turned 16. He was healthy and just playing on a league team with his friends. It was the middle of the game and he just died of cardiac arrest. There was no murder, no drug use, no medical conditions. Brittany Murphy could very well have died from natural causes. She was pretty under weight which is terrible for your heart, she was feeling ill, and she had a history of diabetes. While I do not know what happened to her and I will not make assumptions like others on here, it is VERY POSSIBLE that she did just die from cardiac arrest. Stop saying that it is impossible. If an otherwise healthy 16 year old could die from cardiac arrest, so could a 32 actress whose health was in question.

OMFG, you mean to tell me he paid this guy off with Brittany's life/(savings)??? omg... I really, really hope someone is looking into this! It would be nice if Arturo would come forward and help Brittany's real family find out the truth about Simon... As for him saying Herbal tea.... I really hope they are checking her system for other maybe posionous substances... This poor girl... RIP
