Simon Monjack Pulls Plug on Brittany Murphy Benefit

by at . Comments

The late Brittany Murphy's husband, Simon Monjack, has abruptly canceled a charity gala in her name just days before the event was due to take place.

Yesterday, we told you about the expensive event Monjack was organizing for his new "Brittany Murphy Foundation," a.k.a. the Simon Monjack slush fund.

Mr. & Mrs. Monjack

The alleged screenwriter's benefit tomorrow at the Beverly Hills Saban Theatre was to celebrate the actress' legacy and to raise funds for art education.

He was reportedly planning to charge an entry fee of $1,000 per individual and $10,000 for corporations to attend the event, raising many eyebrows.

But Simon Monjack has now canceled the party without explanation.

Simon Monjack married Brittany Murphy in 2007.

The Clueless actress died at her Hollywood home in December after suffering cardiac arrest. She was 32. The official cause of death remains unclear.

Her spouse has been active on the PR circuit since, by all accounts defending his wife, but quite possibly with the motive of clearing his own name too.

According to reports, Monjack is insisting that the big-ticket party in his late wife's honor was simply postponed, but so far, no new date has been set.

As with everything he does, Simon is once again bringing the shady. No explanation ... no makeup date ... suing Warner Brothers for "killing" Brittany?

This dude is one bad seed.
