Brittany Murphy Has Passed Away

December 20, 2009 / Posted by:

What. The. Fuck. 2009 just needs to turn the fuck around and walk away. TMZ is saying that Brittany Murphy died early this morning in Los Angeles. Brittany was just 32.

TMZ reports that Brittany went into full cardiac arrest at her home this morning. Brittany was rushed to Cedars Sinai by ambulance. She was pronounced dead on arrival. It’s not known whether Brittany’s husband Simon Monjack was with her at the time.

Brittany is probably best known for playing Ty in Clueless and for being the voice of Luanne Platter on King of the Hill, but she was also in Freeway (my personal favorite), 8 Mile, Girl Interrupted, Riding in the Car with Boys, Uptown Girls, and Sin City.

This hasn’t been confirmed by Brittany’s rep, so I’m keeping the question mark in the title until or if it does get confirmed.

Damn. Way harsh and sad.

UPDATE: Unfortunately, Brittany’s rep confirmed that she died at 10:04 this morning at Cedars. Her rep issued this statement to People:

“In this time of sadness, the family thanks you for your love and support. It is their wish that you respect their privacy.”

The LAPD has opened up an investigation into her death. An autopsy will be performed tomorrow.
