Brittany Murphy’s widower Simon Monjack is blaming Warner Brothers for the death of his late wife Brittany Murphy.
The actress died Dec. 20 in her home.
Monjack said Warner Brothers fired Murphy from the sequel to the animated film “Happy Feet.” The firing happened two weeks before she died.
In an interview with the Daily Beast, Monjack said “She was devasted. They killed her. It’s a cruel town. You’re disposable as an actress or actor.”
Monjack says he plans to file a lawsuit against the movie studio for indirectly contributing to her death.
Murphy was too young to die. She was only 32 years old, so it’s understandable why Monjack wants to point the finger at someone. It’s part of the grieving process.
But Warner Brothers is not responsible for Murphy’s death. People get fired or laid off on a regular basis, especially with our current economy.
The Los Angeles coroner’s office has not yet released the cause of death. Unless the certificate says “death caused by Warner Brothers,” I don’t think the movie studio should be held responsible.
