And he took his secret to the grave with him.
Simon Monjack's mother, brother, and therapist, along with Brittany Murphy's mother Sharon found his laptop that contained emails from two separate women asking for child support.
According to the emails, Simon had a daughter and a son and was transferring large amounts of money, as much as $48,000 to his lawyers and to someone in Europe for some sort of settlement.
To add more craziness, Brittany's mother filed a police report when Simon's family took the laptop and gave it to the coroner.
And we thought this story couldn't get any weirder!!
