Confirmed: Brittany Murphy Died Of Multiple Drug Intoxication!

| Filed under: Brittany MurphyDrugs


How very sad!

The L.A. County Coroner has just released the cause of death for Brittany Murphy.

The autopsy concluded it was an accidental death brought on by "community acquired pneumonia," iron deficiency anemia, and multiple drug intoxication.

Sadly, we aren't surprised by the latter, but we still truly feel bad that this had to happen to her.

    She always seemed drugged up but I think her husband contributed to it. Didn't he say they were his drugs?

    I am surprised at you - the coroner's report said she died of pneumonia but that prescription drugs played a factor, so why lead with a headline that it was prescription drugs? Shame on you.

  11. 11

    Did you read the whole story? The leading cause of death is pneumonia.

    HOLLYWOOD KILLS !!!!!!!!!

    very sad

  14. 14

    Hey asshole…

    The "multiple drug intoxication" was from her trying to self medicate the pneumonia.
    Just after I had my second son, I came down with pneumonia myself. I didnt go to the doc.. just took good old neocitrin thinking there wasnt much wrong. The night I finally went into emerg I could barely breathe… doc told me if I had gone to sleep that night, I may not have woken up! Pneumonia is nuttin to screw with!!

  15. 15

    multiple drug intoxication? i know anemia is common and you need to take iron pills…but what other pills were found in her system? oh boy this does not look good

    I figured, so sad.

  18. 18

    No surprise, but still extremely sad.

    Another victim of the Hollywood machine. Young girls looking for fame, fortune and freedom take heed, this could be you if you get in with the wrong people and make poor decisions.

  19. 19

    she did look anemic, she was scarily skinny

  20. 20

    i still cant believe this is eddie murphy's daughter, looks nothing like him

    Re: Chickie319
    no, no, no…..CAP is very treatable and people recover and live long lives…unless in an underdeveloped country. BM's death was PREVENTABLE. The drug intoxication stopped her heart. A very dear family member's autopsy report said the same thing. Dearly deceased died of respiratory failure caused accidently by cocaine and heroine intoxication. Accidently means that she wasn't trying to kill herself.

  22. 22

    that f*ckin moron husband of hers had the balls to go on national television to deny she was taking drugs! duuuh! didn't he know this was gonna be known? murderer!!!

  23. 23

    those of you saying , oh big surprise,fuck you! Drug addiction is DEADLY, and Brittany is another example, I've lost friends,and family to it and have battled it myself,i can tell you i'm damn lucky to be sitting here right now, so those of you picking at her and people who look to substances to fill some emptiness what ever it might be please molested/rape, is the major cause for drug abuse, think that's funny? some of you need to "sober" up and gain a lil something called empathy!

  24. 24

    I'm surprised no one can get their fucking story straight.

    Not surprising in the least, but still very, very sad. :(

  26. babyg says – reply to this


    pneumonia then drugs ! pneumonia was the main cause ! it's sad that drugs were in her system but don't make this something it's not !

  27. 27

    You make me sick Perez. How you can even wake up in the morning is beyond me. Pneumonia is the actual cause of death and YOU fucking know it! I cant wait until the day someone smashes your ugly ass!

  28. 28

    If you would get our facts straight then you would know that the drugs weren't the kind of drugs you wished they were. One was for cramps and the others were over the counter meds like cough syrup. Stop trying to make it seem like she died for a mix of cocaine, heroin, etc.

  29. YUCK says – reply to this


    oh please, you only feel bad because its one less person to talk shit about. you used to tear her down any opportunity you got. you fucking nasty piece of shit. choke on it cocksucker.

    Re: lissalips
    Dear Lissalips,
    I, too, know how terrible it is to lose loved ones because of addictions that they tried so very hard to kick. My heart goes out to you and I am very glad that you are here today to talk about it.

  31. 31

    You stil have to twist the headline dont you? The actual cause was the pneumonia and was helped by the prescription drugs. You make it sound like a drug OD when it wasn't the case at all. Still looking for shock value or something?

  32. 32

    Perez, she had Pneumonia, asshole. She self medicated herself in an attempt to make herself feel better. She made the mistake of taking too much. Don't highlight the drug intoxication without reading the full report!

  33. TLK=3 says – reply to this


    Ummm…the coroner concluded that the primary cause of Murphy’s death was pneumonia, with secondary factors of iron-deficiency anemia and multiple drug intoxication, adding that all drugs in Murphy’s system were prescription medications.

  34. 34

    LIAR!!! She died of pneumonia and iron anemia.

  35. 35

    Re: kidpiglet – i agree with you…they say "drugs" but come on, drugs can be ANYTHING. they totally make it sound like it was hardcore illegal drugs or something…shame on them for publishing it all sketchy… :(

  37. 37

    Listen you dopes! One of my family members died of liver failure at 31. The autopsy report said the cause of death was internal bleeding. The other one just died. The autopsy report said the death was caused by respiratory failure and accidental drug intoxication.
    Brittany would be alive and well right now had she been treated by a healthcare professional and not herself, her husband and her mother. End of story. Spin it however you want. She should not have died. I hope it never happens to someone you love!

  38. 38

    " … we feel truly bad …" Oh yeah right. Just like I feel bad about Kate Gosselin's messed up hair extensions. You are gloating you pathetic worthless morons; Perez, Barbara, all of you. You are gloating that someone else goes down in flames. No wonder everyone hates you.

  39. 39

    So sad, i love her ! =/

  40. 40

    How strange that you feel sad now, I seem to remember when she was alive all you did was post about what a mess she was and how her career was over. Perhaps people like you are a bit to blame for her turning to drugs and dying in this horrible way.

  41. 41

    Perez- You aren't sorry at all. Be honest. How can you be sorry, when you rip apart and judge people you don't know. Karma is a bitch and you will get yours in the end.

  42. 42

    These people have so much money and yet are so miserable.

  43. 43

    Well, sadly we can add the reporting on the tragic case of Brittany Murphy to the long list of Internet cockroach Perez Hilton's failures. Since the day of the tragedy, this lowlife has been hinting that this terrible death was caused by illicit drug use (even warning Lohan and Courtney Love that they could be next.) In the end, he cooks up a misleading headline to attempt to cover up the fact that like with Castro, Michael Jackson, and so many others, he was WRONG again. Ms. Murphy died of pneumonia and anemia. The drug intoxication was merely a contributing factor and was not heroin or cocaine or oxycodone - it was a prescription drug for cramps and some OTC cough medication. What a pathetic failure Perez Hilton is. His mother should be so humiliated right now.

  44. 44

    Bodies are fragile, take care of yours people!

  45. Stepy says – reply to this


    WHY would you skew this sad sad news to focus on the drugs aspect!!

    The report sites Pneumonia as the LEADING cause! The multiple drugs were her trying to medicate the pneumonia! Nothing sinister like you are trying to say!

    You are truly HEARTLESS!!!!!!!!!!!!

  46. 46


    She died of pneumonia with prescription drugs playing a factor! Those drugs were: a cramp medication and cough syrup!! Not illegal
    drugs or hardcore pain killers!! She was just self medicating since she obviously had bad pneumonia and was an unhealthy weight with anemia!

  47. 47

    She could afford decent healthcare. One visit to an emergency room or good family doctor and she would probably still be alive. Do not self-medicate/self-diagnose. Always better to be safe than sorry.

  48. 48

    You are such a dirt bag Perez!! If you really read the report it said the PRIMARY casuse of death was pneumonia! Drugs of course played into it all but that was not the primary cause. Why have a headline like that… like you are happy that drugs played a role in it. You are below scum, I dont know how you sleep at night. You are going straight to hell when you die! You are disreceptul to the living and the dead. At least the living can defend themselves. You are a coward and waste of life and space.

  49. 49

    Re: BitchandILikeIt – Someone already smashed his ugly ass, but you are right, I can't wait for it to happen again.

  50. 50

    anemia and pneumonia are probably a result of being underweight (anorexic). iron deficiency happens when you dont eat enough, and don't get proper nutrients. being that thin her body couldn't fight off infection such as pneumonia. and of course she was on pills too. sad.

  51. 51

    Whoever is writing this site needs to get over themselves. They said Pneumonia was the main cause, but the drugs were a contributing factor. They also stated that the "drugs" were for cramps (Vicoprofen) and over the counter medicines. There were no comments about illegal drugs in her system. It's sad, but it was an accident. This happens more often than you would think. Heath Ledger had more drugs in his system, but you were never this mean to him or his family.

  52. 52

    "Multiple drug intoxication" makes it seem like she was some junkie or was abusing over the counter medication. The reality is that she was taking cramp medication and cold medicine for her pnemonia. How many women out there take some sort of cramp meds … a lot! It's sad what happened but lets not make this out to be something its not.

  53. 53

    I wish people would start taking better care of themselves, especially when they have access to the best health care America has to offer. So sad.

    Re: bert1913 – You must be kidding me. She's not Eddie Murphy's daughter. Murphy is her mother's lastname. She didn't use her father's lastname, he is an italian mobster.

  56. 56

    It was PNEUMONIA you idiot, not drugs. The drugs contributed, but with the extremely low blood count and her lungs trying to send O2 to her system, without the benefit of enough red cells to deliver it, she probably would have died in the hospital on a respirator. I think your report is completely irresponsible and tells the part of the story you've been supposing all along, instead of the truth. You fixed it in a more recent article, but you just made yourself completely irrelevant to me and I won't be bothering with your shoddy, "tabloid," reporting. You are so busy working on your own fame, that you forgot how you got famous. Reporting tidbits of truth that you saw through your own eyes.

  57. 57

    your post is really misleading, she wasn't high she was self medicating her illnesses with cough syrup and low dose pain medicine….

  58. 58

    Please die in every hospital in the U.S. EVERY, single day from pneumonia……BUT it is never noted that their death was ACCIDENTAL. NEVER! NEVER! NEVER! NEVER! NEVER! NEVER! There is a lot to be said about the language that is used.
    I think that Perez hates beautiful women, but in this case his report and the reports of every other blogger and news person, may save a young woman's life. Love, idolize, and protect Brittany, people, but please don't let her death be in vain. Something went very wrong. She should be alive today to kick her grotesque husband to the curb and tell her needy mother to get a life!

    Hey idiot, why dont you read the stuff you plagarize?

    One of the drugs was for cramps, the others were over the counter. She was weakened by pneumonia and anemia and tried to medicate herself through what she though was the flu.

    Take your snide comments and shove them.

  61. 61

    Hey Perez, why do you contribute to the media hype when CLEARLY the autopsy does not indicate what drugs were in her system? The more detailed report will come later and drug intoxication can happen during illness much easier and with dosages that are within therapeutic range. It's called hepatic or renal insufficiency and if she had pulmonary problems her kidneys/liver were not being adequately oxygenated to excreet the drugs. How shameful of you to smear her name like that before the real results are even out. Who knows maybe she was using dangerous levels of narcotics, but maybe not and you've just claimed that was her cause of death. SAD!

  62. 62

    To come to her defense yes she did have pneumonia and severe anemia which didn't help her in taking those medications. But those meds were prescription medications one for cramps and the over the counter drugs were cough syrup for her cold plus other prescription drugs. In the end she was not at fault if you are under a Dr. care you believe in your Dr. and follow what they tell you take sometimes these Dr. get caught up in other crap and this is where you get drug interactions and stupid other preventable mistakes.. RIP Brit…

  63. 63

    They didn't show my message, they are controlling what people write. Free speech!

  64. 64

    You are an asshole you should be ashamed of yourself lying that it was drugs I hope she haunts you for all the bad shit you posted on her you suck!!!!!!!!

  65. 65

    :( such a shame, but no surprise. RIP

  66. 66

    you're so ignorant..the main cause of death was pneumonia and the drugs aka the MEDICINE she was taking and anemia contributed to it. You make it seem like she ODed and you have ever since it was reported that she died. How about instead of confirming something that is completely exaggerated on your part, write an article remembering her and saying something that shows you have compassion. You disgust me

  67. 67

    The drugs were cough syrup and cramp meds. It's making me VERY ANGRY that people are throwing the DRUG word around like she died of a heroin overdose. NOT right and Perez should be ashamed of himself. He IS responsible for making Brittany feel bad when she was alive.
