Lifetime's controversial Brittany Murphy biopic premiered Saturday, and in doing so, stirred more controversy surrounding the late actress' life and death.
The TV movie became a controversial topic for fans, and Murphy's father, who slammed the project and feared that the starlet’s image was being tainted.
Brittany Murphy died on December 20, 2009 from anemia, pneumonia and “combined drug intoxication,” a cause of death her family is still skeptical of.
Some fans even pointed the finger at Simon Monjack, the 32-year-old's husband who is depicted prominently in Lifetime's The Brittany Murphy Story.
Murphy's family believes Brittany was poisoned to death, although Monjack - now also deceased - may have also fallen victim to the same, accidental fate.
In any case, the film showed the actress struggling to obtain roles in Hollywood after tabloids and celebrity gossip sites damaged her image and reputation.
Dropped by her agent, Murphy was reeling until Monjack, a former paparazzi member turned executive producer and writer, came to her "rescue."
