Brittany Murphy Foundation Returns Money!!

| Filed under: Brittany MurphyLegal Matters


How convenient! An explanation!

After it was revealed this weekend that the Brittany Murphy Foundation was not properly registered as a charity DESPITE soliciting money, husband Simon Monjack and mom Sharon Murphy pulled down the site.

Last night, the website was relaunched with this letter:

Dear friends,

We began the Brittany Murphy Foundation to honor Brittany's wishes and to give her family, friends, and fans a way of keeping her legacy alive. In an effort to get the foundation off the ground quickly, we established it as a private foundation with plans to apply for nonprofit status down the road. However, after some thought, we have decided instead to wait until we have our nonprofit status approved before proceeding to ensure that we can truly honor Brittany's charitable desires. Any donations made up until this point will be returned until we have all our paperwork solidified.

We would like to thank the thousands of people who have reached out with kind words of love and support; you have made the hardest journey a little bit easier.

We hope you will bear with us and check back regularly for updates on the foundation. We hope to have it back up and running as soon as possible.

If you have any questions or want to write to us, please feel free to email us at info@brittanymurphyfoundation.org.

With love and sincere gratitude,

Sharon Murphy and Simon Monjack

The website no longer accepts donations, and is now calling itself a private foundation which awaits 501(c)3 non-profit status.

We're not sure we buy this!! Things just keep getting shadier and shadier.

So, so unfortunate and sad.

    Perez shut up, you're like a cat that cries the mouse. You nearly make me barf. You have no right to mourn anything that's related to Brittany Murphy after the torrents of insults you put her through.

  2. 2

    What kind of idiots were giving money to this conman?

  3. 3

    That's perfectly normal when someone begins a foundation. It takes some time to obtain non-profit status. Not shady.

  4. 4

    What's unfortunate and sad is how other websites post this stuff days before you.

  5. 5

    But if they had done nothing, this site would continue to harrass them, smear their name and slander their intentions….damned if you do, damned if you don't….

    That's incredibly shady. Hard to believe he wouldn't know to apply for non profit status BEFORE taking money.

    Perez, you're a twat who should have his lips stapled shut and his fingers chopped off so you can't produce your slanders anymore. There's nothing shady about what he did; for you to insinuate otherwise is ludicrous. Asshole.
    Know what's shady? Your settlement with the BEP manager. Where's all your righteous indignation? Oh, right. You probably received compensation for a punch you so richly deserved.

    I saw that creep on Larry King and her mother is very strange as well. What a FREAK! Karma will get him!

    those two are freak'n CREEPY…… i'd have to say i bet those two are fuck'n, and i bet i'm right

    Whenever I'm forced to stare into the face of this froggyman, I get this one reoccurring thought in my head, SHE COULD HAVE DONE BETTER!

    I would bet that the two of them were and still are having a relationship and it's possible that Brittnay found out about it and they had something to do with her death. Too many weird things surrounding this whole story from way back. Dot the I's and cross the T's and you will have the whole truth. Simon and Sharon are two peas in the same pod.

    this whole situation gets shadier by the day. i hope he is under investigation.
