Is someone trying to harm Brittany Murphy?

(Someone besides her crooked husband, Simon Monjack?)

A source who used to work for the clueless star says she talks darkly of “a high-powered Hollywood player” who is allegedly stalking her.

When Simon Monjack, her then-boyfriend who she secretly wed in May, disappeared for a span of 10 days in April, Brittany claimed he was abducted by agents of a mysterious figure.

“When he came back, he had head injuries,” says a source close to Brittany Murphy. “He was pale and sometimes had trouble standing.”

Moreover, the former staffer also claims Brittany Murphy – who is worth tens of millions, minimum – said she was unable to pay him… because the money had been used for ransom.

However, the alleged kidnapping seems to exactly coincide with the dates reported by The National Enquirer that Simon Monjack, a British citizen, had been detained on immigration charges by federal authorities for overstaying his visa.

Simon Monjack, a screenwriter, is certainly not short of enemies… many readers of this very celebrity news publication among them.

As our readers’ irate comments attest, a bevy of sources have posted unflattering stories on the Internet about his past relationships and business dealings.

On June 13, a man identifying himself as Arturo Globenfeldt posted a message on Monjack’s IMDB page claiming he owes him $16 million in film investment money.

Globenfeldt, who is from Portugal, did not immediately respond to an e-mail. Reps for Brittany Murphy and Simon Monjack also did not respond to a request for comment.

The Hollywood Gossip take: It finally makes sense why Brittany Murphy would marry a man as shady as Simon Monjack. She is also insane! It’s a great match!
