According to reports, Brittany Murphy was fired from an upcoming film that was shooting in Puerto Rico for being difficult on set and a detriment to production.
We’re not sure which film, but Murphy’s IMDB profile indicates that this film may have been The Caller, which also stars True Blood cast member Stephen Moyer.
It took about 15 seconds for Brittany to be replaced, too. Twilight and New Moon star Rachelle Lefevre reportedly hopped on a plane as soon as Murphy was out.
A source also says that Brittany was so pissed about getting booted from the film that she didn’t want to leave Puerto Rico and had “plans to sabotage the film.”
That would qualify her as a Grade A nut job.
Not a good weekend for Brittany Murphy. Or Simon Monjack.
The really interesting part of Brittany’s movie set ouster was that the weird British con-artist she married in 2007, Simon Monjack, got into a fight with some locals.
Could there be a connection between the whole Puerto Rico incident and Monjack arriving at LAX airport “incoherent” and having to be hospitalized Saturday?
Murphy thought that Simon Monjack was having an asthma attack, but medical personnel boarding the plane evidently felt it might be even more serious.
Con-jack was released from the hospital last night and even picked up some burgers before heading home, but it makes you wonder … burgers? Really Simon?!
