Brittany Murphy's husband, Simon Monjack, was found dead in his Hollywood Hills home on Sunday night.

The preliminary cause of death is natural causes.

"We concluded there no signs of foul play or any criminal activity involved," said Sgt. Alex Ortiz.

Firefighters responded to a 911 call from a Brittany's mother, Sharon, at 9:40 p.m. He was found unconscious in the master bedroom. Monjack was pronounced dead shortly after paramedics arrived and resuscitation efforts failed.

Simon reportedly died from cardiac arrest, although it is not official.

Law enforcement found several prescription bottles in the house, but none were illegal. There is no reason to believe it was a suicide or foul play. The LAPD closed their investigation and has handed it off to the coroner.

This comes just five months after Brittany's death. He was only 39-years-old.

Sad.

    Bravo.

    I hope you and the media are proud… you've hounded him to the grave, a few months after his wife.



  10. 10

    Wow. This is truly a shock. It's hard to believe that there was nothing going on though. It just seems very weird that he would die right after his wife….. strange.

    Wow…that is so sad! I feel so sorry for the families involved!



  12. 12

    Whoa!! Natural causes my @ss…fishy city to me…



  13. 13

    bout time ya fuck wad



  14. 14

    So you cleared out everyone's posts about how late you are getting this news out. This happened hours ago. I saw it on CNN, but came here to get the details, only to find ridiculous postings. That is the reason I come to this site… to get details on relevant stories. I USED to anyways. Now it's all just about plugging his musical ventures and his gay agenda.



  15. 15

    Just a bizarre story



  16. 16

    people, whats more devastating - that a man died or that the news of him dying was delivered a few hours too late??? hmmmm



  17. 17

    wow. so sad.



  18. 18

    Congratulations to Perez Hilton on helping to kill this man through biased, relentless, and hurtful gossip!!!

    Way to go Perez!!! Keep being a selfish opportunist!



  19. 19

    now don't you feel like a big shit for shitting all over him?????????



  20. 20

    Hollywood is one EVIL & SICK place!



  21. 21

    Rip both of you. Perez your late on everything you post. Post something on here before anyone else gets their hands on it!



  22. 22

    What, no guilty feelings about all you said about him, you hypocrite!! Wasn't he responsible for Brittany's death??
    I guess now you'll be blaming the mother.



  23. 23

    weird………..



  24. 24

    Oh come on! This is crazy. That poor mother. And please, neither one of them, a husband and wife in their 30s (if Brittany was even that old!), died from "natural causes". WTF.



  25. 25

    It's ridiculous to blame Perez for this man's continued poor choices in life.

    Monjack killed Brittany Murphy, IMO- what comes around goes around.



  26. 26

    Re: motherofpearl – He'll only be truly happy if Lindsay croaks.



  27. 27

    I feel the worst for her mom. She found them both.



  28. 28

    SIMON MONJACK WAS A BRILLIANT AND KIND PERSON WHO WILL BE SORELY MISSED BY ALL. PEREZ HILTON LOOK AT WHAT YOU DID. YOU FINALLY DID IT, JUST LIKE YOURE TRYING TO DO TO LINDSEY LOHAN AND RUMER WILLIS. I HOPE YOURE PROUD, YOU FINALLY GOT YOUR POUND OF FLESH, YOU BLOODY MURDERING AIDS SPREADING, BUTT LEAKING PIRATE!!!!!!



  29. 29

    I don't understand what's sad about it, for you perez. You've claimed he killed his wife, supplied her with drugs and made all kinds of other allegations towards him. Who the fuck do you think you are to say 'so sad'? People like you don't have the right.



  30. 30

    HE CAN FINALLY BE WITH THE ANGEL HE LOVED AND AWAY FROM THE MONSTER (PEREZ HILTON ) WHO TORMENTED HIM!!!!

  31. Laury says – reply to this


    31

    Don't even pretend to be sad about this, you hypocrite. Right after Brittany died, you started calling Simon shady and you even insinuated that he might have played a role in Brittany's death.

    I guess none of it matters now, huh. Brittany and Simon are reunited, so let them rest in peace.



  32. 32

    How can they write it off i dont get it!!! How can they close it so fast!! It all sounds fishy!!!



  33. 33

    You are disgusting Perez. An absolute filth. Hounding him with allegations that were uncalled for… just so you could start some bullshit story. You need to start taking responsibilities for the shit that you create. You are an embarrassment to not only the gay community, but to the human race.



  34. 34

    the media killed him.. poor guy



  35. 35

    WHO'S PEREZ'S NEXT VICTIM? LINDSEY? RUMER? JESSE METCALF? JOHN GOSSELIN? SHAME ON YOU! YOU DESERVE THE AIDS YOU GOT!!!!!



  36. 36

    Pretzel, you're not sad. You vilified these two when they were alive.



  37. 37

    Re: h8terboi – I have to say H8terboi may be right!!



  38. 38

    YOUR ALL FUCKING HYPOCRITS! Saying the media killed him and such is BS! IF you are ALL against media and free speech and all the gossip websites, and perez THEN WHY THE FUCK DO YOU HAVE ACCOUNTS ON HERE TO POST SHIT!? BECAUSE YOU READ IT JUST LIKE EVERYONE ELSE!
    This is a sad story and it was posted without any negativity and you guys all talk shit about Perez. Well if Perez died tomorrow because all of everyone's negative comments? WTF PEOPLE l



  39. 39

    A broken heart? Or KARMA dun dun dun….



  40. 40

    i am sure brittany ghost cameback and killed him……….payback time bitch!!!



  41. 41

    Can you people shut up? Perez is doing his own thing and just because he says what is on his mind doesn't make him a "murderer" and other bullshit. Honestly, instead of bitching about everyone else and having no lives….you should actually remember what this post is about. Someone died and you guys are being so rude. Get over yourselves and leave Perez alone.



  42. 42

    shit-talking on the internet kills. Right. Let darwin take care of the weak ones. He has for the most part. Lindsey's next…



  43. 43

    Perez is not responsible for anyone's death. Bashing from the media is part of the game of fame and sometimes this people are worse than they seem. Monjack probably had a weak heart and a huge karma for being a criminal and for seeing Sharon after Brittany died. Brittany came for him and now he has lots of explaining to do wherever he is. How come Perez is responsible for a man who chose such a dark path in life.



  44. 44

    He had a heart attack. But I think he died of a broken heart. Just like Anna Nicole, I knew he was going to die. The sorrow was painted on their faces. That deep sadness, eating crap and not working out was too much for his heart. Its nobody's fault, even I suspected him of harming Brittany because he's a KNOWN CON MAN.



  45. 45

    LOOK AT YOUR HANDS PEREZ. THOSE ARE THE HANDS THAT TYPED THE WORDS THAT MURDERED SIMON MONJACK!!!!!!!! RIP



  46. 46

    hey "h8erboi" shut up and go get a job or somethnig instead of repeating yourself over and over. no one cares what you have to say.

  47. h8er says – reply to this


    47

    Happy now!! See what you did you dick head!!! you have done nothing but spread malcious gossip about him from the moment brittany died. You are sorry now? its too late for your condolences you made his last few months a total misery!!



  48. 48

    Wow did they both die of cardiac arrest?



  49. 49

    Perez Hilton is a fat fart!



  50. 50

    Re: h8terboi

    I think he'll go after Brittany's poor mother…



  51. 51

    Somebody better investigate mama



  52. 52

    This is too much of a coincidence. I don't believe Monjack was that distraught because he'd been talking to the media too much. Doesn't make sense. Hate to say it but is it possible the mom had something to do with these deaths? She's the common denominator. Or was their lifestyle to blame? I really don't buy the coroner's report. I sense a cover up in action.



  53. 53

    Oh yeah, now you say "sad". Poor Brittney's mother. ):

  54. LNW says – reply to this


    54

    Re: That Cat – I've been up since 4 this morning and there was nothing about him dying until 8am, which was a little over an hour ago.



  55. 55

    somethings very very wrong with this!



  56. 56

    to all the people that blame perez hilton: we all know that every reader just visit this blog because of the gossip. gossip is mean. life with it. its not anybodys fault that somebody died, if you life in puplic, you have to live with people loving as well as people hating you. i only agree to one point: it is sad.



  57. 57

    Re: h8terboi – do you really belived that he cared about what a, after all meaningless, gossip site sad about him and brittany? Or that he acctually read that. if you hate this side so much, why do you support it with visiting it?



  58. 58

    Feeling guilty Perez????????



  59. 59

    Re: LNW
    I was online at 6:45 Central Time and saw it on my news home page( so it had to had come out even earlier than that). I came directly here to get the details, considering the amount of abuse this site has thrown this guys way over the past few months, only to find nothing. As new posts where coming out there were no posts on this. Finally it said "Brittany Murphy's Husband Found Dead!" 'Details coming soon!', which I figured was when they finally heard the story and were going to other sites to find out the scoop.



  60. 60

    It's true what people on here are saying, your bullying of him was relentless and who knows to what extent that may have contributed to his death. I would be very ashamed of myself if I were you. Even if your actions were not contributory to the cause you still hounded a grieving widower until his death, ffs only last week you were accusing him of bedding his mother in law! Finally when it comes to the point of the refusal to allow his wife to undergo a post mortem, HE'S JEWISH - IT'S AGAINST HIS RELIGION he fought for his believes but I guess, in your shallow opinion, he wasn't figting for the same believes as you, understandingg and acceptance, oh wait a minute, that is what you preach you fight for.. I guess you only care about that when it comes to anal sex right?! AND NO I am not homophobic for your info but you leave a sour tase in everyones mouth you tosser with your own selfish needs. Why you want equality on marriage is beyond me, i can imagine the rest of the world wanting it but you? why would you need it? NO ONE would marry a heartless, bullying, fugly, arrogant and fat twat like you. Work on yourself before criticising others.. prick.



  61. 61

    Well, what to say except karma is a bitch?



  62. 62

    Death supposedly comes in threes-



  63. 63

    Brit's mom should just become a 911 dispatcher.

    Re: ammmber – HA! I love you.



  66. 66

    sad and weird at the same time.



  67. 67

    I USED TO WATCH A SHOW CALLED MURDER SHE WROTE AND EVERYWHERE ON EARTH THE OLD BITCH WHO WAS IN THE SHOW WENT PEOPLE WERE MURDERED. I THINK SOMEBODY BETTER LOOK INTO THE MOTHER. I SAW THEM BOTH ON LARRY KING A WHILE AGO AND SHE WAS KIND OF CREEPY WITH HIM. SOMETHING'S UP. FOR REAL.



  68. 68

    HOLY CRAP!!!! You actually spoke respectfully of someone on here.



  69. 69

    Ill say it one more time..Perez..YOU are a TROLLER, only scum like you kick people when they are down or at their worst, you disgust me



  70. 70

    Isn't it suspicious that her mother was there both times, with Brittany and her husband, and they both died from apparently natural cuases. There are certain drugs that can cause cardiac arrest that aren't detectable.



  71. 71

    I hope this stays on your mind since you hounded him and you feel guilty for the rest of your life you fat fuck!



  72. 72

    Does anyone else find it suspicious that Brittany's mother found both her and Simon dead?



  73. 73

    Isn't that what they said about Brittany when she first died that it appeared to be natural causes. Later we will hear that it was drugs mark my words!



  74. 74

    "Sad."?!?! Really?! YOU'RE the one that ripped him a new one when SHE turned up dead!!! And, now, you're acting as if you have sympathy towards him?! NOTHING ever pointed to the fact that he had ANYTHING to do with her death…and no one can say… But you managed to blame him… Maybe he was still grieving over her death…it had only been, what, 5 months??



  75. 75

    No apologies for the filth you spewed accusing this man of killing his wife Perez? How you called him a creep and a killer? Now all the sudden it's "sad". You are pathetic!



  76. 76

    Re: Little Miss Mess – Not even remotely given she lives there.



  77. 77

    you guys are aware that perez almost never posts on weekends, which just means he's sleeping off his hangover or tending to his wounded rectum



  78. 78

    That poor mother, she's been through a lot!

    I think we need to see whats up with very young people dying of natural causes. 39 is pretty young to have a heart attack and die. We keep hearing prescription meds, and that concerns me because I have been using prescription meds for heart conditions for many many years. Granted I take minimal daily and only use painkillers when necessary. Its very concerning.



  79. 79

    Nothing to do with hacks like you hounding him and accusing him of allsorts while he's still grieveing for his wife. Perez you will burn in hell!



  80. 80

    Congrats Perez, you killed another one.



  81. 81

    I hope you're happy fatboy, you and the Media couldn't help but drive him into his own Misery, or,in this case, death.



  82. 82

    wow dont know what to say about this one



  83. 83

    Perez and company you're guilty as charged. You made fun of him and didn't let the man grieve.
    YOU ARE A BULLY! And bad karma awaits those who ridicule others to an early grave.



  84. 84

    you are so not sad, you hated him.

  85. @v@ says – reply to this


    85

    Fishy that they both died, and in their thirties.



  86. 86

    He died of a broken Heart! People like you perez are the scum of the earth!!!!! Speculating and spreading lies about a greaving husband when you dont know the truth. Imagine what all those lies must have done to him. Yes Perez its SAD indeed



  87. 87

    To all the Perez haters:

    If you think Perez is such an idiot and you hate him so much, WHY DO YOU COME HERE??? It takes time to set up an account. Why did you do that? It takes time to read this stuff and then make your cruel comments. Why do you bother? I can't imagine wasting my time reading something that so clearly disgusts me. Set yourselves free from your hatred - STOP COMING HERE! And for heaven's sake, stop making your useless and hateful comments!

  88. Rosh says – reply to this


    88

    You do realize this happen like nearly 10 hours ago.. Your a bit late.
    And don't fucking sit there and pretend your sad Perez. You couldn't give two shits about him. You know it and we all know it.
    You a giant fake Perez and I can't believe its taken me this long to realizes that a lot of what the haters are saying to you is right.



  89. 89

    Re: SnottyMomma5 – You think Perez should be sad over the death of a criminal. He's just being pollite.



  90. 90

    The press or Perez aren´t responsible of these deaths. Brittany and her husband chose their lifes and obiously they were wrong. I can remember every post about them and Perez did advice about they were doing drugs in the last years, too much pills, her erratic behaviour and bad face.



  91. 91

    You know Perez, you and people like you are directly responsible for this. i remember when he lost his wife, you had a feeding frenzy of pure speculation about him being involved in a negative way. Even when reports came out that it was not so you still fed the doubt.
    When someone is grieving they are vulnerable and a caring society supports that and does everything in their power to prevent harm. You just made it worse and so in the end this Gentle man gave in under the power of negativity.

    Of course people like you live in a narrcisitic world where you really only care about yourself and care little in the effect you have on others.
    If you read this I am sure it will not effect you in anyway. You will project your guilt onto me the writer or others.

    Personally for me this ends me reading your site and anything else like it as in doing so I purpetuate this type of misery inflicted on others and I just will not do that anymore. At some point we have to stand in integrity.

    To anyone reading this without a sense of avoidence of truth I encourage you to do the same. Perhaps then vulnerable people might be able to get the help they need to survive trauma and not have to suffer, day after day, spiteful, hurtful attacks by cowards!



  92. 92

    Re: lghshr
    Well, if it weren't for the haters that come on here, Perez wouldn't have much of a site, now would he? So before you ass-kissers start getting all sanctimonious and preachy, and dictating what people should say on here, think about it before you spout out your idiotic comments.



  93. 93

    Never a very healthy looking man even when she was still alive. But I also blame the media and you, personally, for his death. No doubt the cause will be drugs, but the reason is the constant, unrelenting hounding by you and others like you. IMHO.



  94. 94

    I've always been a huge Perez Hilton fan for the fact that you were the less hypocritical person in Hollywood. Apparently I'm wrong, and your motto is complete B.S. You can't go from hating someone and accusing them of murder, and then being sad when they died.
    Youre site basically turned into you critizizing everyone, and being so mean and rude. I liked it better when it was just facts and not your nasty and cruel opinion on everything !



  95. 95

    I keep coming back hoping for new current news….but you keep failing your fans perez. Goes to show you … your not on top of your own game. I keep saying it… your not worthy. I hope your talentless 15 mins are nearly up.

    I feel so bad for Britts mom. But it does seem a little suspicious she was there again. Although Simon was heartbroken and Britt's mom and Simon were really close after Britt died.

    I remember perez saying he was tormented in school. No Perez is a monster!!, he is relentless in his hate and celebrates his wanna be's.



  96. 96

    He died of a broken heart.



  97. 97

    This is soo sad! :(



  98. 98

    RIP!



  99. 99

    Could be heartbreak. Johnny Cash died about four months after June Carter Cash. You know, some people still know how to love.
