Simon Monjack is cashing in

February 2nd, 2010 // 26 Comments

A reportedly broke Simon Monjack is charging $1,000 per person to attend a memorial/”charity” event for Brittany Murphy, according to Us Magazine:

On Thursday, Murphy’s husband Simon Monjack is hosting a launch party to celebrate the Brittany Murphy Foundation, which is dedicated to arts education for children. (Monjack claims he started the foundation with $1 million of his own money.)
A source tells UsMagazine.com he is suggesting dollar amounts of $1,000 per individual and $10,000 from corporations to attend the event, which takes place at the Saban Theatre in Beverly Hills.
Says a source, “Everyone thinks it’s very tacky that he is making it so much about money.”

What’s even more ridiculous is the autopsy report isn’t even finished yet, so if anyone actually donates money to this shyster, they’re going to feel pretty stupid when the cause of death comes back as “turkey drumstick.” Or over-consumption of drugs prescribed to Simon Monjack. Same principle.

    Why would he use a picture of his dead wife with what appears to be blood fanning out from her body? I guess that morgue photo wasn’t available yet.

  2. alex

    what a genius, lol

  3. Richard McBeef

    That donation money will get turned into high fructose corn syrup which will be piped directly up that flabby tub of shit’s ass.

  4. Emily

    That looks like blood splatter…

  5. What a jerkoff

    I hope that this “foundation” is being administered by a neutral 3rd party administrator, so all monies will go to charitable causes. If not, then no one should consider giving a penny to this obvious “I’m making money off my dead wife” money grab by this fat fuck…

    It should be called Brittany Murphy Foundation for kids who can’t act very good.

  7. havoc

    Classy.

    And that’s the best photo of her they could find? She looks like a cross between a vampire andt he St. Pauli Beer chick….

  8. Superficial Press: Rough man bites fleshy parts of a dozen crows

    Why is making a lot of money from this event is even an issue. He’s doing it for the children for Christ sake. Is there any decency left…

  9. Cougar Hunter

    Sharon Murphy and Simon Monjack are responsible for her death. Greedy, money-hungry filth. They are probably lovers too.

  10. Veronica

    how horrible. Just wondering if as her husband, he owns the rights to her name, etc?

    This is a bit Joe Jackson-esque, pimping those kids at/immediately after Michael’s funeral.

  11. Get serious

    Let’s get serious here. Brittany murphy was an OK actress in a few high profile movies; she was BY NO MEANS a hugely talented or super in-demand actress, so all this handwringing is ridiculous. Higher profile actors & actresses have died with much less fanfare; let it go.

    As for this asshole, I expect that he will be charged for illegally obtaining prescription pills for his wife. This money grab is nothing more than a fat turd’s attempt to establish a bail fund to get out of jail once he’s arrested…

  12. IMHO

    I’m sure he is afraid that Brittany’s mom isn’t going to let him sponge off of her for much longer… I wouldn’t be surprised if he was trying to convince her that Britt would “want her money to be in the foundation…”

  13. I know this sounds crazy, but I am wondering if he had some kind of hold over her. Maybe I’m just watching too many movies.

    They were such an odd couple and he always seemed so sinister.

  14. cc

    I’d pay $1,000 to punch him in the face. Do you think he’d take it?

  16. Umm…I’ll watch some “King of the Hill” reruns, how about that?

    @ 16 – That sounds pretty good.

  17. It’s always tragic when someone passes well before their time. I’ve never really followed her career but did find her funny and cute in Just Married, and decent in Sin City.

  18. I’m as judgemental and snarky as the next person, but I’m not sure why everyone seems to hate this guy. We don’t know what their relationship was like, and there’s no evidence I’ve seen that HE’S going to make money from the foundation he’s founding. It seems kind of sad that he can’t do anything without being criticized and put down. Though my glass is almost always half empty, I’m going to risk thinking that she must have loved him, and that he honestly mourns her, and that his intentions are good even if his execution is odd. I’ll go back to being a bitchy pessimist later on today.

  19. Garbage man

    And so we mourn the passing of a second rate useless “actress”. A fat capitalist pig want to “create” monies from her death. Are we surprised here?
    This country needs to kick out all the non Christian retards. They don’t really belong here now do they?

    Nobody in their right mind is going to attend this shit. Then again, this is Hollywood we’re talking about.

    “This country needs to kick out all the non Christian retards. They don’t really belong here now do they?”

    I guess you missed the part in the Bible about loving thy neighbor.

  23. Nobody in their right mind is going to attend this shit. Then again, this is Hollywood we’re talking about.

  24. Thanks guys… this is awesome…
    Umm,my first project will be launching soon and I’ll be sure to write up a quick post when it does.
