Did Simon Monjack Die of Drug Overdose?

by at . Comments

How did Brittany Murphy's husband suddenly die just months after the actress herself succumbed to cardiac arrest at her Los Angeles home at age 32?

Law enforcement sources say there are signs that an accidental overdose of prescription drugs may have left Simon Monjack dead at home last night.

Mr. & Mrs. Monjack

There is no official word yet, but a well-placed source says, "There were a number of pill bottles on the nightstand in the bedroom; some were empty."

This is clearly and eerily similar to the death of Monjack's wife, Brittany Murphy, in December, after which an array of prescription drugs were found.

On the nightstand of the same bedroom where Monjack died, no less.

Many of the drugs on Simon Monjack's nightstand were the same as the ones found after Brittany died, too. But the actress' death was ruled natural.

R.I.P. Brittany Murphy and Simon Monjack.

One law enforcement source says that the two causes of death that seem most plausible right now are both "natural" and "accidental drug overdose."

Monjack suffered a heart attack during a November incident when he had a medical emergency aboard an airplane and paramedics met him at LAX.

Brittany's mother, Sharon Murphy, discovered Monjack's body. Sharon was also the one who found her daughter, Brittany, unconscious in December.

Those close to Monjack never recovered from the death of his wife. Sources say he was often unshaven and had gained considerable weight since.

He repeatedly and very publicly decried reports that hinted his widow died of a drug overdose and described living every day without her as painful.

The 39-year-old made a fortune trading currency but his wealth brought him little comfort. A source who knew Simon Monjack well told Radar Online:

“In past months he didn’t feel well. He never told me exactly why but he was having physical problems as well as being emotionally devastated."

Hollywood.. Drugs.. Coverup.. Nuff said


I have a great deal of respect for Britney, she is missed. She was always good in everything she did. Monjack, no I don't have a lot of respect for him. Britney was very sick when she died. I think if he had cared more about her health instead of her money, she might still be alive. I hope they didn't go to the same place, so Britney won't have to put up with him, anymore.


Now Simon and Brittany can be in heaven together. He missed her too much maybe they really were soul-mates and he couldn't take the pain of being without her. I hope no one posts mean comments, show some class and respect for the two of them please. Life is short enjoy it while you can!!!
