The late Simon Monjack was, by all accounts, a shady individual with his fare share of detractors - the list of which is sure to grow with the following revelation.
A laptop has unearthed a secret Brittany Murphy's husband carried to his grave when he suddenly passed away last month. Two secrets, to be more accurate.
Kids. Illegitimate ones. With different women.
Simon's mother, brother and therapist stayed at his home last week with Brittany Murphy's mom, Sharon Murphy, who had been living with Brittany and Simon.
When they left, they took Simon's laptop. At some point, they went through it and found emails from two women wanting money from Simon for child support.
According to TMZ, citing people who have reviewed the emails on Simon's computer, Con-Jack had a son with one baby mama and a daughter by another. Wow.
BAD SEED: Simon Monjack was a shady man indeed.
He was really living up to his seedy reputation. Also in the computer were wire transfers of large amounts of money - as much as $48,000 in a single transfer.
Simon, who our readers decried and lambasted from day one, was sending the money to lawyers, as well as someone in Europe for some sort of settlement.
Reports say the family of Simon Monjack felt the coroner should have the laptop and handed it over. The coroner's office is currently reviewing the contents.
Oh, and Sharon Murphy apparently went ballistic and filed a theft report with the local police, adding another interesting twist to this already bizarre saga.
Brittany Murphy died after suffering cardiac arrest in December.
What else was he hiding? Did Brittany Murphy know about Simon's children? Was he siphoning her money to pay their child support? We may never know.
