Simon Monjack, the husband of the late Brittany Murphy, has been found dead at his Hollywood Hills apartment
Simon Monjack, the husband of the late Brittany Murphy, has been found dead in his Hollywood Hills apartment, aged just 39.
Almost five months to the day since the tragic death of his actress wife – who died from pneumonia complicated by multiple drug intoxication – screenwriter Monjack is thought to have passed away on Sunday night.
The Los Angeles Police department has confirmed a 911 call was received at 9:24pm.
Brittany’s mother Sharon is thought to have found Simon unconscious at his LA home and called for medical help.
The cause of his death is still unconfirmed, although reports suggest he may have died after suffering a heart attack.
Just last year Monjack spoke of his heart problems. ‘I suffer from seizures. I had a heart attack coming back from Puerto Rico last year,’ he told reporters in an interview after Brittany’s death.
