More Friends Of Brittany Murphy Speak Out Against Simon Monjack

| Filed under: Brittany MurphySad Sad


Stories are continuing to come out about Simon Monjack's behavior while he was married to Brittany Murphy and after her death.

According to her friends, he had a nervous breakdown after her death, and now more friends are coming out saying that it was a "blessing" that he died.

Eric Ziegenbein, a former friend of Brittany, said of Monjack's death:

"People always say it’s a tragedy when someone dies, but in this case it’s more of a blessing. Simon wanted to die. He struggled with depression for much of his life, and he felt like Brittany was the only thing he had to live for. He was a full-blown drug addict by the time they were married, with not many prospects, and when she died he felt he had no reason for living. Their relationship was so destructive it was like they were both waiting to die and just poisoning themselves. It got more and more dysfunctional, until it finally killed Brittany. They were both zombies anyway. It’s not like they had any quality of life left. Sometimes death is a blessing for people who are suffering, and they were both suffering."

Meanwhile, Brittany's half brother Tony Bertlotti says he was not sad when he heard of the news that Monjack had died because he "helped kill my sister."

He adds:

"The guy was insane. He tried to keep my father’s name off her death certificate. That’s two people that have died living in that house within six months. When are people going to open their eyes about what was going on there? My dad and I feel the same way; we are sad for my sister but not for him."

So so sad.

    Love you Brittany and miss you terribly. I'm so sorry it was like this for you, at least you are at peace now and no more worries.

  2. 2

    and that mother of Brittany's was a COMPLETE enabler. For years her mom kept her drugged up

  3. 3

    dont know why nobody say something about while they were alive.
    at least, show a bit of respect and let them rest in peace!

  4. 4

    Would you please quit with that SO SAD shit? It's so totally fake and so fucking annoying.

  5. 5

    Wow, these people are so full of hate.

  6. 6

    After she died, I spoke w/someone who called himself a friend of Brit's, he chastized ME for assuming her death was drug related and that her life was turmoil b/c of drugs cuz I didnt know her, all of the circumstances of her life - well, there he was, a FRIEND of hers, aware and yet not inclined to step in, make himself maybe unpopular for a short time by doing what needed to be done… Friends are not bystanders to tragedy that can be avoided, friends step in and try to make a difference.

  7. 7

    where were these people when she was alive? if they felt she was on her way to the grave they shouldve actually been real friends and helped her out. these "friends" obviously have no idea what respect is saying shit like this about someone who has passed on.

  8. 8

    maybe Eric was a former friend cause he tried to say something and was cut off.Not all people like to hear the truth.We need to be responsible for ourselves

  9. 9

    so bitter

    Re: cdowb021 – totally agree!

    Reading what these two says makes ME sick. Glad you're in a better place Brittany and Simon and away from the vulchers of Hollyweird.

  13. 13

    the guy is dead. stop posting articles about him so he just goes away.

  14. 14

    Doing a quick search with the name "Eric Ziegenbein" will bring you to the fact that this guy is famous for his disrespectful comments about celebrities.

    Very often, the closest relatives of the dead ones try to put the tragedy on someone else's fault.

    Those quotes ain't worth shit. Stop trying to exonerate yourself, Perez.

  15. 15

    I like how all of these people are speaking out NOW instead of DURING.
    Anything for a quick dollar I guess. :/
    both of them are at least at peace from all this two faced fuckery now.

  16. 16

    Damn Perez you must be a psychiatrist or a psychic.You sure knew every little detail and why they did what they did!

  17. 17

    I would have to have a ton of drugs on board to be married to that thing too!! YUCK!! But where was the family when she was in this zombie state?? Real friends and family should have tried to get her help…. now they are just selling their stories…soooo sad!!

  19. luvu2 says – reply to this


    I kinda wish you would not post about this guy anymore. It's just really sad, kinda depressing….

  20. 20

    Read the blessing comment again. That person is saying it was good that they died because they were in pain while living. Totally different from what P tried to make us believe.

  21. 21

    What does this have to do with you Perez. Uh, NOTHING!

  22. 22


  23. 23

    Her mom will be the next one!

  24. 24

    Ummmm it sounds more like the friends are speaking in support of them being together now rather than speaking against him. You rehashing her brother' words don't make your claim correct.

  25. 25

    … we should hope Sharon pulls herself together, gets off the Rx's… then decides to *talk* - we 'JUST' want to hear the TRUTH. … BTW… Sharon "Em" Britt's father Angelo are the only two living ties to Britt we still have - so we don't want ANY harm to come to either. Together they have so many Sweet Stories to 'TELL' about Britt - I've heard many from Her dad… now it's time that Sharon gives her now-SENSELESSLY Departed Daughter a living voice to share some (truthful) sweet Stories "Em" perhaps "not so sweet" *stories* w/ us…

  26. 26

    ^…* Dimlit* needs to go back to Reading Compreh"Em"nsion 101- the quotes Perez used from Eric Ziegenbein and Britt's half-brother Tony are synergistic and prove each'OTHER' valid. There 'WAS' "Em"DEED *something going on* up on Rising Glen, lots of drinking and Rx use/abuse, of which Britt's PR veh"Em"ently DENIED during the lives of both Her "Em" Her *FAKE/arranged "husband" aka SKUM-jack-now-"Em"-the-Box*…

    … "Gr8feet2"- great points and post…

  27. 27

    And why is no one looking at some sort of outside source? They both just so happen to die,so close together,in the same house?? Hmm..I'd look into foul play on the moms part,or maybe a house keeper? Who knows..To fishy for me to feel okay with it happening.I didnt know him,so I have no reason to hate him,i think the loss of someone whos not done anything wrong is horrible.Not to mention,how long had it been when she died that we heard ANYTHING about her?? Forever.SO stop placing your judgment,you have no more a clue then me what was going on.

  28. 28

    Wow…hmm. :-/

    I hope you, someday, realize who you are. You are trying to make money off the deaths of two people. The deaths that have not only affected each perons's own family, but their extended families as well…TWICE, in the same year. This right here…this kind of garbage is not only incomprehensible, but it is also inhuman to report. Forget the people involved in this story. Just forget them for a minute. This little blurb that was written up is blatantly in support of demonizing and wishing death towards a person who may have likely taken his own life because of his destraughts state. And how dare you take quotes from people so fresh off the death of their own daughter or sibling. How f-ing dare you. On a site like this that sees the traffice that you do. I am agnostic, but for the time being I will sit back and believe there is a special place in hell for those like you, to make such gossip and fodder on the heels of such a tragedy in the same married family. Good lord, you showed more human compassion when you got your ass kicked by the Black Eyed Peas for running your mouth.

    Re: Gr8feet2 – I agree!

    people can be cold and rude it is a tragic thing when people die so young regardless of the circumstances. All of these people coming out of the woodwork to try to put in their 2 cents and ruin someone's memory of these 2 people, shame on you and move on.

  32. 32

    funny how there is always people coming up with stories when people are dead, and never when they are alive?..well, except for MJ..his family is still protecting his "reputation".

  33. 33

    To all of you haters out there, he is dead now so you can let it go and allow them both rest in peace

  34. 34

    You need to get your mother out of there, dude, before she bites the big one too!

  35. 35

    Dear Eric Z: You are completely full of shit.

    Re: Lakshmi – Brit's mom is not his mom. He's her 1/2 brother. Brother from a different mother.
