Sources are saying that Brittany Murphy’s husband Simon Monjack, told hospital staff at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center he did not want an autopsy performed on her. But, the L.A. County Coroner’s office will perform an autopsy on Murphy anyway.
Sources also say, Murphy was very ill in the hours before she went into cardiac arrest. She was apparantly taking prescription meds for flu-like symptoms she had been experiencing for several days. They also say various prescriptions were found in the home — written for Brittany Murphy, husband Simon Monjack, and Brittany’s mom. One source says, “There were a lot … a lot of prescriptions in the house.”
Law enforcement sources tell us TMZ Murphy collapsed in the bathroom and somehow ended up in the shower … there was, we’re told, a significant amount of vomit in the immediate area.
Our condolences to Brittany’s family and loved ones.
Brittany’s ex-boyfriend, Ashton Kutcher tweeted Sunday afternoon, saying, “2day the world lost a little piece of sunshine. My deepest condolences go out 2 Brittanyâ€™s family, her husband, & her amazing mother Sharon.” The actor adds, “see you on the other side kid.”
