Brittany Murphy’s mom gets everything

December 22nd, 2009 // 65 Comments

Brittany Murphy’s apparently executed a will years before she married Simon Monjack which leaves everything to her mother Susan Murphy, according to TMZ:

The house Brittany owned and died in was held in trust — a trust created several years before she met Monjack. He is not listed on the title.
We do not know if Murphy amended her will after she was married. So far we have no evidence Murphy drafted a codicil (amendment) to the will.

Granted, Brittany Murphy had enough money to pay off her husband’s debts at the beginning of their marriage, how much could she honestly be worth right now? She really hasn’t done anything lately and I doubt Brittany made millions doing “Faster Kill Pussycat” with Paul Oakenfold. But if she did, somebody tell a famous DJ I’m awesome at talking over shit, too. Just ask the guy who sat in front of me during Avatar last night. Tell me not to have phone sex read The Nativity Story out loud before Christmas… Why do you hate America?!

    Her mom will get everything, including Brittany’s acting ability. Now she needs to get a really really really small container.

    I can’t believe Luanne left nothing to Mr. Dauterive.

  3. Anna

    I’m sorry…. but it’s kind of catchy.

  4. who dat

    Who cares?

    I want to talk about gay sex! I’m gay!!!

    Wheeee…

    You can’t cut your spouse of a will – sorry – state law will override. Unless there is a pre-nup waiving any statutory rights….

    #2, not to make light of a sad situation but that was pretty damn funny.

    Does her Mom get all the prescription meds too? If so, where can I tap some mommy ass?

    Yo, counselor, help a guy understand your claim.

    If someone’s will says her mom gets 100% and spouse gets zero what will the state law do to change that? Are you saying that spouses are guaranteed a minimum percentage?

    How might this change the arrangement? Will says 100% to mom–none to spouse. 50-50? 75-25?? What if there are kids?

    What good is a will if state laws override?

    That don’t sound right…I am asking you sincerely-not busting balls as usual.

    @#5 – You comments assume that the estate transfers pursuant to a will and probate. Would not the grantor of a revocable trust be able to designate benficiaries without running a foul of statutory resrtictions. Additionally, I am sure that her estate attorney’s contemplated some amount to be paid to the husband…i.e. $100,000 or some other nominal sum. I find it hard ot believe those slick LA ambulance chasers would drop the ball like that.

    My favorite lawyer joke…

    A guy walks into a bar and starts screaming, “All lawyers are assholes. All lawyers are assholes. All lawyers are assholes.” Another guy walks up to him and says, “Hey, I take offense to that,” The first guy says, “Why? are you a lawyer?” Second guy says, “No, I’m an asshole.”

  11. who dat

    Enough of this will talk.

    Let’s talk about gay sex. That’s hot!

    Uh, try doing some reasearch before writing a story. While not a fan, I do know that Brittany Murphy continued to be the voice of Luanne on “King of the Hill”, and was earning over $150,000 a voiceover episode. She was making over $3,000,000 a year on that alone; that may not be much to you jaded hollywood types, but that’s a SHITLOAD of money in my book. Her lying con-artist husband didn’t get any of that, and her residuals (which will be worth millions for years to come) will go to her mom as well. Bottom line – her scumbag con-artist husband lost MILLIONS by not being listed in her will. Just shows that crime does NOT pay…

  13. i saw that this was her third engagement. she will be missed by her fans.

  14. some one loves these celebrities! but i love the people in uniform who serving our nation. they defend our freedom & safeguard our safety,
    show your respect and love @Seekuniform.c oooooooooooooo m

    Good for her. High or not, she took care of her family. Hopefully this will help shut down some of the speculation surrounding her untimely departure. I know for a fact, she was charming, well spoken, and a great voiceover artist. Now I know she was a devoted daughter as well. Sorry for your loss Mother Murphy, you raised a great kid.
    Rest in peace Sweet Luanne, tell Buckley I said Hi.

  16. friendlystoner

    pretty sure this is a rip of of some shit dance tune called The way she moves, well that the lyrics anyway. Oakenfold – your old and shit, everytime i`ve seen you, you play good tunes but mix like my 90yr old granmother who has parkinsons.

    RIP Brittney Murphey, loved you in 8 mile (shit film tho), Dont say a word and Sincity.

  17. Almost Sherlock Holmes

    The mother, huh. Would that be the mother that “found” her passed out in the shower? (Read the news report – SHE was the one who found Brit.) Just sayin.

  18. Ronald McDouchebag

    she was more than wealthy, she was making bank, she on King of the Hill for 13 seasons, plus what King of the HIll will make in syndication, her mom is set for life, superficial dude, you have no clue what you’re talking about

  19. Mama Pinkus

    can we spare any sympathy for this mother who lost her only child? rest in peace baby girl

  20. toopier

    I know that she is gone and all, and this may seem a little mean…but that eyebrow is scary!

  21. A lot of these medications are also meds used to treat migraines. How about we let go of the speculation and guessing games until the tox screens come back and tell us for sure? I always like Brittany Murphy and I am sad that she’s gone.

  22. Man, that sucks for the husband. I guess he was left out entirely?

  26. I don’t think its fair for the husband. Well but he doesn’t need anything too. As for her mother, she has to take care of all the assets and liabilities too if any.

  27. robynnn

    Why would she include her mother in her will???
    It’s usually expected that the parent will die before the child….that’s pretty sketchy.

  28. abby

    Uh, what about LouAnne on ‘King of the Hill’?

  29. gia

    her mom also claimed she had diabetes…once her blood pressure goes through the roof, there’s nothing stopping the heart attack.

  30. John Daly

    Tiger Woods was seen running away from her house….! The SOB probably fucked her to death….the horny black bastard that he is.

    Now if I could only whup his black ass on the golf course!

  31. Donk Donkerson

    Wow…she looks hot in these pictures.

    Oakenfold is a tool.

  32. JFS61

    I thought California was a common law state – So unless there’s a prenup, I would think he’s would be entitled to half of her earnings after they were married, in addition to any real property acquired thereafter.

  33. Hi Guy’s,
    some one loves these celebrities! but i love the people in uniform who serving our nation. they defend our freedom & safeguard our safety,

  35. Scumbaggy

    Her dad’s a pro guido-banger so blood Family is king with Brit. Mommy gets it all. OTC & mulitiple scrip pharma is the new designer drug…

  36. Gerald_Tarrant

    Maybe her death was an accident. She was just so emotionally troubled because of the research she was doing for her next role as the Joker in the new Batman. She couldn’t sleep. So she took a few pills to help her and……oh damn, this lame ass excuse was already used?

  37. Gazza

    She really was FUGLY wasn’t she?

    Also, her mother ‘Sharon Murphy’ is of Jewish Eastern European ancestry.

    Could someone tell me why she has an IRISH name then?

    Puzzled!

    I hope that fat tub of lard gets nothing. Shame on him to go blab to the gossip rags before a memorial service is even held.

    In contrary with many other overrated hollywood bitches with their brilliant publishers.This is a totally underrated girl.

    5 is right…regardless of what is put in trust. A spouse can elect to take their share of an estate from the decedent. This is to prevent the deceased from writing their spouse out of the will. Most states won’t even allow you to say “My spouse can’t take anything from my estate” That clause will be striken unless some type of prenup was signed stating that the surviving spouse takes nothing. Generally, it is about 1/3 of an estate but each state has different levels enabling a spouse to elect from the state.

    @ #44 – Did you get your law degree by filling out the back of a cereal box or Phoenix Online University? A trust instrument will pass the corpus of the trust outside of probate. Am I the only one who has ever established an A/B Trust? How can the probate court strike anything from a trust? You are correct that a spouse can take their share of the estate from the decedent. What happens when there is no estate, dipshit? Let me guess….first year? Probly law review too. Hope whatever firm hires you has rock solid malpractice coverage.

  45. friendlystoner

    i`m know a lot more about politics and economics than i do about law, so i dont know who is right, but #44 defo just got put down by by #45

  49. Songs better than Heidi Montag. They used every trick in the studio on Heidi and it was still unremarkable.
