For a mere $1,000, you can attend an event honoring the late Brittany Murphy and line Simon Monjack’s pockets support the Brittany Murphy Foundation.
Forgive us for being skeptical, but when the late star’s husband launched the foundation last Thursday, we couldn’t help but wonder what he’s really up to.
Something about that dude is just shady.
Yes, the Brittany Murphy Foundation is dedicated to arts education for kids. Yes, Monjack says he started the non-profit with $1 million of his own money.
But would it surprise you if as head of the foundation, Simon Monjack paid himself a nice six-figure salary for his time? All tax-free of course? Just asking.
That’s just us being skeptical. We have no proof that’s true. But an Us source says “Everyone thinks it’s very tacky that he’s making it so much about money.”
Monjack is requesting donations of $1,000 per person and $10,000 per corporation to attend the event, taking place at the Saban Theatre in Beverly Hills.
For once, Monjack has yet to comment. He has been a talk show and magazine staple since his wife’s death in an effort to clear her name (and his own).
Murphy was found dead December 20 at the age of 32. The results of the toxicology report to determine the star’s cause of her death are still pending.
