Brittany Murphy’s husband wants to sue Hollywood now

January 27th, 2010 // 47 Comments

So remember when Simon Monjack said not being in Happy Feet 2 is what really killed Brittany Murphy and we all had a couple laughs? He’s literally going to sue Warner Bros. for wrongful-death over it:

The Daily Beast has learned that Simon Monjack, the much-maligned husband of Brittany Murphy, is only days away from filing a wrongful-death action against Warner Brothers, claiming that the studio is responsible for the unexpected death of the 32-year-old actress last December. “They killed her,” he told me. Although the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office hasn’t released a final cause of death, Monjack and Brittany’s mother, Sharon, who also spoke to me, are convinced that the once-promising star died of a heart attack from the stress caused by Warner Brother’s canceling of a contract just two weeks before she died. Murphy was excited to have begun production on the sequel to the animated hit Happy Feet, but when she was fired by Warner Brothers, Monjack says, “She was devastated.”

Excellent move. Because suing an entire movie studio for somehow killing his 32-year-old wife in her own shower doesn’t at all make Simon Monjack look guilty. No, really, what was the thought process here?

SIMON: I should probably get the heat off me fast… I know! I’ll eat this stick of butter. I mean, sue Warner Bros. — No, both! Nom nom nom nom.
BRITTANY’S GHOST: I switched all the butter with non-fat margarine while you were sleeping.
SIMON: What did I ever do to you?! Oh, right.

    I still can’t believe this warthog was married to her. First BTW.

    I didnt get the lead in my high school play.
    5 months later my grandfather died.

    I am filing a lawsuit against the school in the morning.

    Wow. Love really IS blind.

  7. antoine bugleboy

    Him and OJ should team up as a hilarious crime-fighting duo, bounded together by their restless mutual search for “the real killers”.

  8. Beejoo

    @7> Yeah, that might have been funny back when it was relevant…and before everyone else and their mother made the same joke.

  9. Turd da Third

    He is just white dump truck trash (he wouldn’t fit in a trailer..)

  10. Turd da Third

    He is suing because his gravy train just ended and he needs to find a new source of income for doing nothing..

    Are you sure she wasn’t crushed to death?!

  13. Colin

    I think I’d have more success suing the Fish writer for emotional distress for showing me that last pic of Jabba the Monjack’s ass. Or Donatella Versace’s breasts. Or Madonna’s anything.

    I know that Brittney was an actress, but you can really see her flinch in photo #3 when Tubbo tries to kiss her. It also looks like that little dog was lost at that moment.

    And it wasn’t too brilliant of Simon to have lots of perscrip drugs lying around the house for those special times when Brittney got really really insecure.

    But, by all means Simon, file a wrongful death lawsuit against NBC (and against Gelson’s too, while you are at it).

    She was found dead naked in the bathroom with her legs up.The investigators didn’t understand why there was a walrus swimming in the pool.

  16. Rhialto

    You can tell that she was an animal lover.

  17. Joe

    WB shitcanned her contract when they found out she was a diabetic. They couldnt get insurence or want to pay the preimum
    In Hollywood once your outed for being a diabetic nobody will hire you if your sick and they cant get insurence.

  18. Gando

    @15 Didn’t they notice that greasy trail from the bathroom to the pool?!

  19. Joe

    Making a movie, record or even a band with a type 2 diabetic is a real pain in the ass. Its worse then a drug addict
    These people get horrible mood swings, get batshit crazy, never sleep and have to stop, bitch, eat and pee every hour.
    Its months of pure insaniety on the set or in the studio

  20. Look, if you’re going to sue Warner Brothers for anything, sue them for that abomination “Catwoman”. Maybe you can file a class action suit with Halle Berry.

    “Berry arrived at the ceremony to accept her Razzie in person (with her Best Actress Oscar for Monster’s Ball in hand), saying: ‘First of all, I want to thank Warner Brothers. Thank you for putting me in a piece of shit, god-awful movie . . . It was just what my career needed.’ “

  21. What a loser

    Uh, yeah. Sure. Go ahead & sue Warner Brothers, you fat tub of lard. While you’re at it, sue Nostredamus, Jesus & Santa Claus. You have a better chance of stealing money from them, you fat money grubbing piece of shit.

    Brittany murphy was an OK actress, who was WAY too highly strung. More than likely, the stress of her being an emotional wreck to begin with is what killed her. Let’s not make her out ot be someone she’s not. She definitely doesn’t deserve this handwringing & browbeating. Too bad she’s gone, but let’s move on…

  22. This isn’t going to end well for him.

    @22 – Yeah, morbid obesity rarely does.

  29. thats the dumbest shit ive heard so far today.

  30. justifiable

    #17/19/28 The ass you’re talking out of is bigger than Monjack’s since Halle Berry, Victor Garber, Wilford Brimley, Delta Burke and Mary Tyler Moore, to name a few, are all working – so clearly they have no trouble getting hired. If you’re an undependable high-strung basket case who nods off on the set and can’t remember your lines, THAT will get you fired.
    BTW, Murphy’s mother was the one who said she had a history of diabetes, but then again she and Monjack told everyone Murphy didn’t have an eating disorder and never abused presecription drugs.

    Well, he’s the biggest cootie *I’ve* ever seen…

  32. how the hell did that fat bastard land a hottie in hollywood?

  33. First Time Commenting

    My god, would love to see snaps of a few of you. I stopped to read this because I was bored shitless. I really couldn’t give a shit about this story. I am more interested in how well those that make the comments rate! Stop trying to be ‘The Superficial’ because you can’t pull it off!

  35. Let’s all make it a class action lawsuit!

    None of us were going to be in Happy Feet 2 either! Warner Bros. ruined our lives! Them and McDonalds!

    WE WANT OURS!!

    @ 32 – I’m wondering if she had low self esteem and figured “this abominable schlub will never leave me”.

  36. Keith

    Man this gives fat, pale, unattractive men all over the world lots of hope. If you look like artie lange, you could marry a washed up, anorexic, coked up actress too!

  37. I just noticed she’s protecting her lips with a dog in pic 3.

  38. Looks like she was gonna suck his face off!

  39. How can you sue without the cause of death? I am confused that Murphy played a role in the movie “Spun”, which makes me skeptical of the use a methamphetamines. Did she ever like the drug?

  40. i just heard that they found drugs in her system.

  41. if you’re having a you’re in no wrong!The Inseparables Love Flats were made by Christian Louboutin in the early 90s,while he started working for Roger Vivier in 1988 and in 1991 the Louboutin Shoes label was officially born.(the story continues right after the jump with more images!)

  42. That is for me to be very fond of this shoes the lock design,from the chart we can see that this package is a pair of locks of red Christian Louboutin Shoes,very delicate,only the details of the entire paragraph on the bag for a lot of extra points.

  43. Victoria Beckham (Victoria Beckham) is a huge fan of Christian Louboutin.
    “Red shoes” high recognition, it’s another advantage of the female stars free advertising.
    This brand of red to not work, female celebrities feet directly under the Nama red will grab your attention … …

  44. Thanks of your infomation,i have read it is very helpful for me.

  45. Thanks of your infomation,i have read it is very helpful for me.
