The late Brittany Murphy’s husband Simon Monjack was found dead last night at his home in Hollywood Hills. His death comes less than six months after Brittany’s untimely death from cardiac arrest in December of last year. TMZ reports:
Law enforcement sources say Brittany’s mother, Sharon, found Monjack unconscious in the master bedroom around 9:30PM, and then called 911.
Monjack was pronounced dead sometime after paramedics arrived.
LAPD is at the home now along with the coroner and a death investigation is underway.
No further details have yet to be released, but I think I know how it all went down: an assortment of moules marinieres, pate de foie gras, beluga caviar, eggs benedictine, leek tarts, frogs’ legs amandine and quail’s eggs on a bed of pureed mushroom all mixed together in a bucket, followed by a double jeroboam of champagne and one wafer-thin mint. I just feel sorry for the crime scene investigation team and whoever got to clean it all up.
UPDATE: Some are suggesting it might be an overdose of prescription drugs. Clearly, they haven’t seen the reenactment video.
