    Default Brittany Murphy's Husband Found Dead in LA

    Simon Monjack, husband of the late actress Brittany Murphy, was found dead at his home in the Hollywood Hills late Sunday, Los Angeles police sources said.



    Screenwriter Monjack died at the home in the 1800 block of Rising Glen Road, just five months after the death of his wife.

    At 9:24 p.m. PT Sunday, the Los Angeles Fire Department responded to a 911 call for an "unspecified medical aid request," according to spokesman Brian Humphrey.

    Law enforcement sources told TMZ that Murphy's mother, Sharon, found Monjack unconscious in the master bedroom.

    Paramedics attempted to resuscitate the 39-year-old on arrival, but he passed away from cardiac arrest, The Sun reported.

    Murphy -- who starred in "8 Mile" and "Girl, Interrupted" -- died aged 32 from pneumonia and a drug overdose of prescription painkiller Vicodin on Dec. 20, 2009, a coroner's office report said.

    After her death, British-born Monjack blamed Hollywood, saying film bosses had "blood on their hands."

    He said Murphy was devastated just days before she died when an offer to be the voice of Gloria in the "Happy Feet" sequel was withdrawn.

    The star voiced Gloria in the original penguin flick.

    I would venture to guess that a boat load of prescription drugs will play a huge factor.
    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly.

    Los Angeles, California (CNN) -- The widower of actress Brittany Murphy, found dead in his home Sunday night, was scheduled to undergo heart bypass surgery this summer, a spokesman for the actress' mother said.

    British screenwriter Simon Monjack, 39, was pronounced dead after the Los Angeles Fire Department was called to his Hollywood home for a medical emergency, police said.

    There were no signs of foul play or criminal activity in the death, Los Angeles Police Sgt. Alex Ortiz said.

    Roger Neal, a spokesman for Murphy's mother, Sharon, said Monjack delayed the heart surgery until after a fundraising gala for the Brittany Murphy Foundation in September.

    Murphy, his wife of less than three years, died just five months ago.

    Sharon Murphy found Monjack unconscious in his bedroom and called the fire department, a family friend said.

    An autopsy is scheduled to be conducted Tuesday, according to the Los Angeles County coroner's spokeswoman.

    Sharon Murphy, who shared the house with Monjack, "loved him like a son" and is devastated by his death, Neal said.

    It is the same Hollywood Hills home where Brittany Murphy lived.

    Murphy, 32, died in December from a combination of pneumonia, an iron deficiency and multiple drug intoxication, a coroner said. The drugs involved were legal and used to treat a respiratory infection, according to an autopsy.

    The often bubbly, free-spirited actress appeared in films such as "Clueless," "8 Mile," "Don't Say a Word" and "Girl, Interrupted."

    She also lent her voice to animated works, including the movie "Happy Feet" -- in which she also sang -- and a regular role on the animated TV series "King of the Hill."

    Monjack and Murphy were married in May 2007. The couple had no children.

    The foundation's gala, which still may be held, was organized to raise money for children to study music, dance and other arts, Neal said.
