Reports began surfacing that toxic mold in the house may have contributed to the deaths of Brittany Murphy and her husband Simon Monjack, but Brittany's mother Sharon says that information is incorrect!
"I have never been personally asked by the coroner or anyone from the Health Department to come and inspect my home for mold. In the last eight months, I have been through the most unimaginable events, which no one could ever fathom. I have and will continue to be very cooperative and fully comply with any such request. It's absurd that this kind of misinformation is being reported by the media."
The official cause of their deaths in pneumonia and anemia.
Plus the family had their home inspected just last year! The family spokesman says:
"Due to the inferior products used by the builder and sub contractors, the Murphy home had a persistent leak problem. Simon Monjack [hired] an attorney and filed a lawsuit against [them].
"In October 2009, to insure the home was safe to occupy, the attorney hired a well-respected company to conduct a full inspection of the home which would include … checking for any possible mold."
Still sounds fishy to us!
