The Los Angeles County Coroner released its report on Simon Monjack, the deceased husband of the deceased Brittany Murphy. The report indicates that Monjack died of pneumonia and anemia, which is what Brittany died of five months previously. The coroner also found traces of prescription medication in Monjack’s blood, although not enough to have contributed to his death as they did in his wife’s.

Jeez, first this guy cons Brittany Murphy into marrying his shady ass so he can ride her coattails to fame, then he drives her into an early grave, then he shacks up with her mom, then he tries to bilk mourners out of their money by soliciting donations for a fake charity, and then he had the audacity to die of the same thing that killed his wife because God forbid he come up with an original idea. Whatta catch.

Plus, how dumb do you have to be to die of something easily treatable that killed your wife only weeks before? Like, “Oh, my wife, my wife, she’s dead, I am distraught. And how odd that my grief is manifesting as the exact same symptoms of the illness that killed her. Must be a sign from the universe that our love knew no bounds, and not an indication of my utter stupidity!” That’s like watching someone get eaten by a shark, waiting five minutes, then deciding that the blood in the water just makes it a more comfortable temperature for swimming.
