Brittany Murphy’s Husband Speaks Out
The husband of actress Brittany Murphy, Simon Monjack, wants everyone to know that she did not overdoes, or have an eating disorder.
“These rumors that she was anorexic? It’s crazy – she was slim, but that was her natural physique,” Monjack tells PEOPLE. “This is what’s killing all of us? How did it happen? Her mum, myself and her family – we want to know why we lost our baby.”
Brittany died Sunday morning from a complete cardiac arrest. Her mother found her in the shower.
When the hospital wanted to do an autopsy, Monjack originally said no, leading many to think that something was awry.
“My initial reaction to the autopsy was – they’re going to cut her open – I couldn’t bear it,” Monjack said, weeping. “That would break her mother, but we realized we needed to know. I look forward to getting the results.”
The results of the autopsy could take up to two months due to toxicology reports.
What a terrible event for this family. Our hearts go out to them.
