Fake Brittany Murphy Charity Shut Down

by at . Comments

Simon Monjack is the epitome of a bad seed.

Dude is such a shady character that minutes after Brittany Murphy died, THG readers were speculating that he must have had something to do with her demise.

That's unfair to the guy. But little he does can be taken at face value. Such is the case with the Brittany Murphy Foundation, a charity he started to honor her.

The only problem? It's not really a charity.

The Brittany Murphy Foundation run by Simon Monjack and Brittany's mother Sharon hadn't filed the necessary documents to qualify as a charity or nonprofit.

As soon as this was reported, its website was shut down. It's now back up with the following notice, promising to give back all donations so far ...

Pretty sketchy explanation about getting off the ground quickly ... definitely not to capitalize on media attention paid to the late 32-year-old's tragic death. Naw.

The non-foundation says it will wait "until we have our non-profit status approved before proceeding to insure we can truly honor Brittany's charitable desires."

If those desires included a Simon Monjack Drinking Fund, she's smiling somewhere right now. If they were anything else, we wouldn't be holding our breath.

Slymon Conjack will never change. For him, it has always been about the money (Brittany's) and the celebrity status (Brittany's). He is now conning and controlling a poor grieving mother - watch this space...they will be an item very, very soon!

When I was 32 I thought coming home and finding my boyfriend taking another woman into his bedroom was tragic. Thankfully, I've never dated slimeballs like Simon. You have to expect that if you date someone strange and gross that it might turn fatal.
