This is unimaginably tragic.
The team did release a statement on the matter, though (below):
This is just heart wrenching!
Brittany Murphy died suddenly at 32 years old in December 2009, but the coroner is only now reporting that if her mother Sharon called the ambulance 24 hours earlier, the Clueless starlet would have survived a combination of pneumonia and anaemia.
But her mother was supposedly only following Brittany's wishes by avoiding calling the ambulance.
Brittany refused to get medical help for her stalled breathing because she was so terrified of the paparazzi.
If only mama called 9-1-1 before Brittany fell lifeless in her arms, but she also may not have seemed as sick as she truly was in the hours leading up to her death because she was so sedated by drugs! *TEAR*
The grief the lost star's mother feels already must only be heavier with this new information.
Truly, there is no one to blame. This was such a bizarre tragedy and the only thing that matters is that a very talented, lovely woman is gone forever.
We miss you everyday, Brittany!!!
