Brittany Murphy's Cause of Death Revealed?

January 21, 2010

Brittany Murphy’s husband Simon Monjack appeared on The Today Show this morning and strangely blamed Hollywood for her death.

Monjack appeared alongside Murphy’s mother and was interviewed my Matt Lauer. He told Lauer that Murphy was upset that she’d be dismissed from Happy Feet 2, due to supposedly untrue rumors that she’d been fired from another film. He then said,  "Hollywood broke her heart. They have blood on their hands, and I hope they wash them with very hot water because of the way they treated Brittany Murphy while she was alive."

Wow, those are some fighting words. Monjack also said that Murphy’s most likely cause of death was a virus that spread to her heart. The coroner has yet to make an official ruling on the actress’ cause of death, but the report is expected soon.
