Our readers hate Simon Monjack.

If you believe half of the things posted about him on this site, you’d think Brittany Murphy’s new husband were sleazier than Spencer Pratt… with a criminal past to boot.

Turns out our celebrity gossip readers might not be too far off base in decrying this odd, unexpected and wholly suspicious marriage.

Word out of the New York Post today suggests that Murphy wed Simon Monjack to keep him from being deported. According to the National Enquirer, Monjack was arrested on expired visa charges on March 27 – just over a month before the couple’s rushed marriage.

The tabloid also hammers the actress’ portly hubby with allegations of bad debts and shady business schemes. Sources told the Post that the clueless cutie knew nothing about this.

Interestingly, Murphy once starred in a movie called Clueless (with Alicia Silverstone).

Simon Monjack’s lawyer denied the allegations, claiming they are being made by “disgruntled ex-girlfriends” and that immigration lawyers have concluded the marriage to Brittany Murphy had no bearing on his visa status.

Sure thing, Simon. It’s your turn, fans. Chime in.
