Five months after Brittany Murphy passed away, her husband Simon Monjack a screenwriter who was only 39, followed. On Sunday, May 23, 2010, Monjack was found unresponsive on the same bed his wife was found dead on. Authorities say that Monjack died of a heart attack similar to that of which caused Murphy’s death. Monjack’s representative, Roger Neal assured that Monjack’s death was not a suicide and also revealed that Monjack mentioned that he was planning on having a surgery late this year to fix his heart problems.
Monjack’s mother said that her son ‘died of a broken-heart’, claiming that Monjack’s heart problems were always known but that the sorrow of Murphy’s death aggravated the problems much more. She said: “He’s had heart problems and been in deep distress since Brittany died. We think he has literally died of a broken heart.”
Although they both died too young, Monjack and Murphy will be brought together again as Monjack will be buried next to his wife at Forest Lawn Memorial .
