Simon Monjack Opens Up About Losing Brittany Murphy

Since the untimely passing of his wife, Brittany Murphy, Simon Monjack has had little sleep. He recently sat down with People magazine to dismiss rumors of drug addiction and eating disorders.

The 39-year-old widower asserts, “These rumors that she was anorexic? It’s crazy–she was slim, but that was her natural physique.” Monjack adds, “Her mum, myself and her family–we want to know why we lost our baby.”

Explaining why he was hesitant to have an autopsy, Simon tells the magazine, “My initial reaction to the autopsy was–they’re going to cut her open–I couldn’t bear it.” Breaking down into tears, the British screenwriter adds, “That would break her mother, but we realized we needed to know. I look forward to getting the results.”

However, he was clear about what he expected from the toxicology results. Monjack says of a drug overdose, “I can get rid of that one right now.” I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
