Brittany Murphy’s husband Simon Monjack gave a long interview to The Daily Beast where he said he is days away from filing a lawsuit against Warner Bros. for contributing to his wife’s death. Simon says that Brittany suffered massive amounts of stress after the frog fired her from the sequel to Happy Feet. Simon believes that all the stress led to her having a heart attack. Simon wants to see the frog (sans top hat) in court.
The L.A. County Coroner still hasn’t released a cause of death, but that’s not stopping Simon. Simon thinks that Warner Bros. only fired Brittany after they read unconfirmed rumors about her behavior on a movie in Puerto Rico, “Warner Brothers relied on conjecture and hearsay about the Puerto Rico film for why they canceled Brittany’s role in Happy Feet. You’re disposable as an actress or actor.”
In past interviews, Simon swore that Brittany never abused illegal or prescription drugs. Simon said that most of the medications found in the house at the time of her death belonged to him.
Simon also denies that he’s a gold digging bear who has a history of being a con man. Er. Somebody needs to tell Simon that this lawsuit against Warner Bros. really isn’t helping his cause.
