What happened to Brittany Murphy?

Murphy rose to fame in the ’90s and early 2000s after she was casted on Clueless.

Over the years, Murphy had appeared in several films including Girl, Interrupted and 8 Mile.

In 2009, Murphy had unexpectedly died at the age of 32 after collapsing in the shower of her home sometime before 8am.

At first, the Assistant Chief Coroner said that she died from natural causes but it was later revealed that she actually died from pneumonia and combined drug intoxication.

Her cause of death was then ruled an accident, which her father never believed.

Five months later, her husband, Simon Monjack, then strangely died from pneumonia as well.

Who was Brittany Murphy’s husband?

Monjack was known as an English screenwriter, film director, film producer and make-up artist prior to his death.

Like Murphy, he made headlines following his unexpected death at the age of 40.

Over the years, Monjack had written the films Factory Girl and Two Day, Nine Lives.

“He was a disturbed individual who was used to conning people and Brittany was one of his last victims,” director Cynthia Hill said via People. “There was a pattern of behavior that became very obvious the more research that we did.”

The documentary also features appearances from Monjack’s mother, Linda, and brother, James along with his former fiancée Elizabeth Ragsdale, who claims he lied to her about his identity.

The documentary also reveals that Monjack “conned” the actress right before her sudden death.
