Simon Monjack: Meds Were Mine

by at . Comments

In his continued effort to clear Brittany Murphy's name, Simon Monjack says the meds found in her house after her tragic death December 20 belonged to him.

Murphy's husband says she had "laryngitis and flu-like symptoms" at the time of her sudden passing, but was not suffering from seizures, as has been reported.

In his first interview since his wife's death, Simon Monjack says many of the prescription medications found in the house at the time of Murphy's death were his.

Monjack, himself an oral cancer survivor, says he suffers from migraines and seizures as well as a heart condition. "I've had seizures," the screenwriter says.

"We're still trying to establish [why]."

Simon Monjack wed Brittany Murphy in 2007.

He says most of the medications in the Hollywood Hills home he shared with Murphy and her mother, Sharon, were for his own health issues, not Brittany's.

He says Murphy used Vicoprofen to relieve pain from severe menstrual cramps. "She was on an antibiotic and was taking cough medicine," says Monjack.

The grieving spouse believes her death was triggered by a congenital heart murmur. "No [medications] that could have possibly led to her heart attack."

The actress's mother, Sharon, insists that Murphy did not do drugs, and had a naturally "bubbly" personality. "She never even drank," Sharon said.

Toxicology results to determine the cause of death are still pending.
