Celebrities: Brittany Murphy’s husband died a few months after her

Brittany Murphy was loved by everyone she knew, but the one she loved was not who he appeared to be – new details about her husband have been revealed, and they are grim.

In 2009, the famous actress Brittany Murphy shocked the whole world when she collapsed in her home and died.

More than ten years later, her death is still shrouded in mystery, but thanks to HBO’s new documentary titled “What Happened, Brittany Murphy,” fans will have the opportunity to uncover the details of her final days.

The documentary, which premieres on HBO Max on October 14, 2021, not only focuses on the days leading up to Brittany Murphy’s death, but it also sheds light on her relationship with her husband, Simon Monjack.

These two had a pretty tumultuous relationship, but they only died five months apart and of similar causes, just that. Was it love? Or something more?


The upcoming documentary series, produced by Blumhouse Television, takes a keen interest in SImon Monjack’s dubious past, and his behavior has come to light as they dig deeper into their research.

The documentary would include interviews with Monjack’s mother, Linda, his brother, James, and his former fiancee Elizabeth Ragsdale. Before Monjack moved to Murphy, he had a relationship with Ragsdale, who claims he lied to him about his identity.

They got engaged after a brief date. Ragsdale became pregnant soon after, and Monjack insisted that she give birth on American soil.

Four months pregnant, she boarded a plane he paid for to New York, where he told her he would find her. He never did.

“When I got to my little studio in New York, I called him, and he answered. I said, ‘Simon, I got to …’ and before I could say that sentence , he hung up on me. He left me pregnant and abandoned “,

Ragsdale tells in the documentary series.

Cynthia Hill, who directed “What Happened, Brittany Murphy?”, Described Monjack as “a troubled individual who used to swindle people,” and she believes Murphy was one of her latest victims.

Hill’s documentary series will also feature new interviews from sources who have been close to the talented actress, as well as footage from her private life.

For example, an interview with makeup artist Trista Jordan revealed how terrible Murphy looked while working on her latest movie, “Something Wicked,” just before her death in 2009.

According to Jordan, Murphy had sunken eyes and looked like a very sad person. She was also in great pain and could barely stand.

Murphy’s career took off in 1991. She notably starred in the Fox sitcom “Drexell’s Class”, which launched that year. She then focused on movie roles, starring in several blockbuster movies, including “Beautiful to Die”, “Girl”, “A Stolen Life” and “Cherry Falls”.

Brittany Murphy has also managed to make a name for herself in the dubbing arena. She lent her voice to Luanne Platter in the animated comedy “Kings of Texas”.

She enjoyed fame, but unlike many, it didn’t go to her head – it made her loved. Despite the drama surrounding her disappearance, Hill says most people she’s spoken to remember Murphy’s kindness. Hill said:

“Everyone was so consistent when describing her. She was so generous, caring, and always thought of others.”


Brittany Murphy was pronounced dead at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in December 2009 after collapsing at her West Hollywood home. The coroner’s report found pneumonia to be the leading cause of death.

It was also shown that she was suffering from symptoms of iron deficiency anemia and that she was taking various over-the-counter and prescription drugs, which contributed to her death.

On the day of her death, Brittany Murphy had taken the following medications: an antibiotic (Biaxin), migraine tablets, a cough suppressant, an over-the-counter nasal spray, an antidepressant (fluoxetine, aka Prozac), an anticonvulsant (Klonopin) , an anti-inflammatory (methylprednisolone), a beta-blocker and Vicoprofen (to relieve menstrual pain) “.

Before giving up the ghost in her bathroom, she appealed to her mother to tell her that she loved her. The woman quickly called 911, but it was too late. Murphy’s death sparked many conspiracy theories as well as criticism of Monjack.

Before his death, he made a statement calling himself “America’s most vilified man.” He also urged people not to believe everything they hear and read before declaring his deep love for his wife.

A few months later, on May 23, 2010, Monjack, who was 39 at the time, was found dead in the couple’s home, in the same bedroom as his late wife, and his death was attributed to pneumonia and to anemia as well.

The fact that the deaths occurred within five months of each other, in the same bedroom, and had the same cause, raised suspicion among all who heard the story, but Sharon Murphy, the mother of the actress, quickly kept silent.

Later in November 2013, Murphy’s father Angelo Bertolotti broke the silence on the matter, saying he felt a murder was involved and that it was by poison.

He reportedly requested additional toxicology testing and claimed that the results showed the presence of up to ten heavy metals in his system.

Sharon quickly denied Bertolotti’s claims in an open letter, thus putting an end to the rumors. Brittany Murphy’s father was nowhere near as close to her as her mother, which gave her more weight with her fans.

In her letter, she called Bertolotti’s claims lies based on “fragile evidence” and hinted that he wanted to exploit her.

Either way, nothing more was revealed about what really happened if, indeed, there was more at stake. Bertolotti died in 2019 at the age of 92, but the Mystery surrounding Brittany Murphy’s death persists to this day.


Sabrina Ouazani is an actress much appreciated by the general public, who has lived through many trials. The pretty 32-year-old brunette had the pain of losing the man of her life. Back on the brutal disappearance of her fiancé whom she struggled to overcome.
