Was Brittany Murphy's husband sleeping with her mom - literally, not in the sexual sense - after she died? That's the implication of a new coroner's report.

Murphy passed away in December, and Simon Monjack, her husband, died a few months later. Both deaths were attributed to pneumonia and drug use.

Brittany's mom, Sharon Murphy, lived in the home they shared. Which brings us to today's report from the coroner's office about Monjack sleeping with her.

According to a report, an investigator walked through Simon's bedroom with a woman who identified one side of Simon's bed as "her side of the bed."

The woman's name was withheld from the report then, but law enforcement sources have in fact identified her as Brittany Murphy's mom, Sharon.

Simon and Brittany

Married in 2007, Simon and Brittany both have passed on.

Sharon Murphy lashed out today at the L.A. County Coroner's report on Simon Monjack's death, calling it misleading that she shared a bed with him.

In a statement, Sharon says, "I am very disturbed that the L.A. Coroners [sic] office continues to release things to the media that are misleading."

She continues, "The TMZ story with it's [sic] salacious headline suggesting that my prescious [sic] son-in-law Simon and I slept in bed together."

"Infering [sic] sexual contact is journalism at its lowest."

In reality, TMZ's story made it clear - even going out of its way to say - that the Coroner's report did not suggest sexual contact between them.

A Coroner's Office spokesperson says the report, which also says there were meds prescribed to "Sharon Monjack," which she denies, speaks for itself.

The late Brittany Murphy's husband, Simon Monjack, was shrouded in mystery and suspicion from the moment they wed in 2007 until his own death this year.

Now new allegations are flying about her controversial spouse, whose business manager, Jeffrey Morgenroth, says he liquidated a majority of her accounts.

Mr. & Mrs. Monjack

"There were huge amounts in pension and bank accounts, and all of that's gone," he says. "There was money being withdrawn by Simon, hundreds of thousands."

Six months after the 32-year-old star's death in December from pneumonia, anemia and drug intoxication, Monjack had withdrawn 80 percent of her wealth.

His own death from anemia and pneumonia in May ended this sad saga on a tragic note, likely relegating any ulterior motives he had to speculation alone.

Where is the money? What was he doing with it? One person it matters deeply to is Brittany's mom Sharon, 57, who faces financial uncertainty as a result.

Troubled follows Simon Monjack, even in death.

After Monjack died, Jeannette Bycott, an assistant to Morgenroth, says Monjack's mom Linda ordered Sharon Murphy to leave the couple's Hollywood Hills house.

Both Murphys and Monjack lived in the house, and Brittany's mother spoke fondly of Simon, at least in public, in the wake of Brittany's tragic passing.

"Linda basically started acting like everything belongs to her," says Bycott. "Before Sharon could say anything, Linda stated the house was now hers."

Linda Monjack, also grieving the loss of her child, denies any wrongdoing by Simon. "If there is money missing I have no idea where it is," she said.

"He didn't get much, maybe a few hundred dollars, and he paid off debts with it. He spent most of his time crying his eyes out most of the time."

"He was in a terrible state."

Simon Monjack, who died Sunday in the Hollywood home he once shared with wife Brittany Murphy, had a heart condition and was due to have bypass surgery.

This according a rep for Murphy's mother, who also lost Brittany in December.

"I can tell you he was excited about what the future held in terms of the legacy of Brittany Murphy," publicist Roger Neal told reporters. "He looked fine to me."

Neal said he last saw Simon Monjack on Saturday, and used the opportunity to set the record straight: "As far as we know he passed away of natural causes."

Monjack was 40, not 39 as was previously reported, he said. Also, there is no indication that he died of an accidental drug overdose, as some reports suggest.

Simon and Brittany

R.I.P. Brittany and Simon married in 2007.

"He did have a heart condition [and] due for bypass heart surgery. What's been on TMZ I don't believe is correct at all; anything that they have intimated is not correct," Neal said. "He was a man full of life and a man excited about the future."

The accidental overdose theory was floated by the celebrity gossip site yesterday, just hours after Sharon Murphy discovered him unconscious in his bedroom.

Sadly and eerily, Sharon was the one who found her own daughter's lifeless body five months ago and made the dreaded 911 call to the paramedics afterward.

"It is a very sad day for Ms. Murphy," Neal said. "In less than six months she suffered a double loss. We are asking that the media be as respectful as possible."

"She's devastated. She's very strong. I don't know how you handle something like that. She is resting. Sharon loved Simon as a son. They were a close family."

The rep said Simon Monjack dreamed of carrying on his wife's legacy.

"Brittany's dream, as was Simon's, was to help children who want to learn to do ballet, sing, etcetera, who couldn't afford it. [He] would raise money for it."

The late Brittany Murphy, who passed away in December, received no fewer than 200 pills a month from January 2008-August 2009, and sometimes as many as 400.

The actress used an alias, Lola Manilow Murphy, at Eddie's Pharmacy in L.A. for nearly two years before the pharmacy finally cut her off four months before she died.

Mr. & Mrs. Monjack

Pharmacy records show Murphy got regular prescriptions for hydrocodone (Vicodin), clonazepam and Klonopin (anxiety), and Vicoprofen (a Vicodin/ibuprofen combo).

What's more, she doubled up on some prescriptions certain months.

Brittany Murphy (1977-2009).

For example, during one month in particular, Murphy was prescribed 200 hydrocodone and 100 clonazepam; another month it was 300 Vicoprofen and 100 Klonopin.

All the prescriptions were prescribed by Dr. Richard Kroop. One of many doctors under investigation in the case, he was paid a visit by authorities Friday afternoon.

The owner of Eddie's Pharmacy told TMZ he cut Brittany and her family off months before her death because, "We thought there was going to be an accident there."

Turns out he had his finger on the pulse there. Much like when THG told you in May 2007 that Simon Monjack was a shady character. Sometimes you just nail it.

The deaths of Michael Jackson, Brittany Murphy and Corey Haim raised questions regarding prescription drugs, and have sparked an investigation, sources report.

The California State Attorney General's Office is investigating a number of doctors who prescribed meds for the aforementioned stars, all of whom died recently.

This Was It

Several dozen doctors are being investigated for allegedly prescribing medication without medical justification. The A.G. is also looking at their various aliases.

Sources say between 25-30 doctors are being "actively investigated." As we know, Dr. Conrad Murray already faces a manslaughter charge in the Jackson case.

He may not be the last. Two doctors who prescribed drugs to Anna Nicole Smith also face charges in connection with the former Playboy model's 2007 death.

The deaths of these stars beg many questions about the ethics of prescribing certain drugs, and have now prompted a California Attorney General's office investigation.

Continuing this disturbing trend, Haim's death earlier this month has already been linked to a massive drug ring, with a criminal investigation sure to follow.

Brittany Murphy’s husband Simon Monjack is furious over a report that the star obtained medication - a majority of which is MIA - just before she died.

The late actress, who died in December, allegedly secured a prescription for 120 hydrocodone pills 11 days before her death. Only 11 were found after.

At the recommended maximum of four per day, she would have taken only 44 of them, and you can do the math there. So where are the missing pills?

Monjack says the pills were prescribed to Brittany’s mom Sharon, a cancer survivor, and the report is so outrageous that he's considering legal action.

What a surprise there.

Mr. & Mrs. Monjack

THE MONJACKS: Simon Monjack has been outspoken since Brittany's passing. Is he trying to clear her name, or his own? What is his agenda at the end of the day?

The release of Brittany Murphy’s autopsy report on February 26 ended all rumors and hurtful speculation that the actress had abused drugs, Simon says.

But a day after that report was released, a website claimed that 109 pills were missing from a bottle of 120, leading to renewed speculation over Murphy.

The article asked why so many pills prescribed in the first place, and by whom, while saying Simon Monjack has provided no help in locating the doctor.

As always, the bad seed has his own version of events.

Brittany Murphy had a lot of drugs in her system when she died in December. Her death has been ruled an accident, but several questions about it linger.

The actress obtained a prescription for 120 hydrocodone (Vicodin) pills 11 days before her death, but on the day she died, there were only 11 pills left.

Suspicious, no? Moreover, the L.A. County Coroner's Office cannot locate the doctor who prescribed the pills and are currently on the hunt to find him.

According to the Coroner's report, the medication prescribed specifically to the fallen star were supposed to be taken a maximum of four times a day.

But since 109 of the pills were missing from the bottle when she died, only 44 should have been gone if Brittany had maxed out on the prescription.

Brittany's husband, Simon Monjack, says he is vindicated by the accidental death findings, but officials want to know why so many pills were prescribed at all.

A member of the Coroner's Office recently went to Simon Monjack to assist them in locating the doctor who prescribed the meds, but he was not any help.

Why are we not surprised in the least?

The cause of Murphy's death is listed as "accidental" - the result of pneumonia, prescription and over-the-counter drugs - but is still far from a closed case.

Will the missing doctor be found? And if so, will he ultimately face legal action like the enablers/doctors who treated Anna Nicole Smith and Michael Jackson?

According to Brittany Murphy's recently-released autopsy, "multiple medications were present in the blood, with elevated levels of hydrocodone, acetaminophen, and chlorpheniramine."

Because these were prescription drugs, not illegal ones, attention-loving husband Simon Monjack says the report vindicates him.

"She never did anything that she was accused of!" Monjack told Us Weekly. "We never hid anything. And that's been the case with everything in our marriage. Maybe with her death, people will start to realize - yes, we had a lot of prescriptions around, but if you look at some of them, they date from 2001!"

Simon and Brittany

Monjack - who has been accused of setting up a fake charity in his late wife's name in order to extort mourners - says he found "solace" in the autopsy and rejects the idea that Murphy's death could have been prevented.

"Any death could be prevented," he said. "It's a tragedy."

True. But this wasn't the case of someone getting hit by a drunken driver. Murphy's death has been ruled an "accident," but either Brittany, Simon or both were negligent in some manner when it came to the medication in her system.

In the end, Monjack wants people to leave him alone and "stop coming out with these ridiculous stories" about his relationship with the actress.

"Our marriage was dogged by these ridiculous rumors. Brittany's life was dogged by ridiculous rumors, and the truth always wins out," Simon said. "I hope people have the sense to really understand that everything was beautiful and wonderful in our relationship and so pure."

Just shut up for a few days, dude, and we'll be happy to never say a word about this tragedy again.

The list of drugs in Brittany Murphy's system when she died have been released by the L.A. County Coroner's office today, and it's not a pretty picture.

According to the report, "Multiple medications were present in the blood, with elevated levels of hydrocodone, acetaminophen, and chlorpheniramine."

"L-methamphetamine was also present."

The report says, "It should be noted that the pattern of use of these medications suggest treatment of symptoms of a cold or other respiratory infection."

"Acetaminophen and hydrocodone are components of Vicodin. Chlorpheniramine is considered an active ingredient in some over-the-counter medications."

The late Brittany Murphy with Simon Monjack, who she wed in 2007.

"L-methamphetamine is a component of some inhalers."

The Coroner believes that Brittany had pneumonia and tried self-medicating with prescriptions and over-the-counter drugs ... and it ultimately proved fatal.

The report notes that "Possible adverse physiological effects of elevated levels from these medications cannot be discounted, especially in a weakened state."

"Therefore the manner of death is Accident."

Simon Monjack, you're in the clear. Except for trying to bilk people through the fake foundation you set up in Brittany's name. That was real shady, man.

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 ...

Brit Found

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.
