This may come as a shock to you guys but apparently during the freakishly short time between Brittany Murphy and Simon Monjack‘s deaths, he pissed through 80% of her finances, according to her business manager. On top of that, Simon’s mom also allegedly tried to kick Brittany’s mother Sharon out of the house. People reports:
“There were huge amounts of money in [Brittany's] pension plan and bank account, and all of that’s gone,” says Morgenroth. “I would see it on the statements. There was money being withdrawn by Simon, hundreds of thousands.”
Even in the wake of Monjack’s death, trouble followed. Jeannette Bycott, an assistant to Morgenroth, says she witnessed a scene in which Monjack’s mother Linda ordered Sharon to leave the couple’s Hollywood Hills house.
“Linda started acting like everything belongs to her,” says Bycott. “Before Sharon could say anything, Linda stated the house was now hers.”
This is what police detectives call a “gang-bang of motives.” Okay, maybe they don’t use that term, but they should. First, you have Sharon Murphy who’s being kicked out of her daughter’s home by her shady con-man son-in-law who just farted through the entire estate. Then, you have the con-man’s mother who wants her hand on that cash and house and probably isn’t too happy her son got sloppy with the whole charity scam. She taught him better than that. Also, Simon’s mom is the one who floated the mold theory as the cause of his and Brittany’s death even though somehow Sharon is perfectly healthy and says there’s no mold. If this was an episode of CSI: Miami, Horatio Caine wouldn’t know what the fuck.

“Fuck it. It was the penguins. *shoves on sunglasses*”
