The deaths of Brittany Murphy and her husband, Simon Monjack, really did seem too similar to just be coincidence, didn’t they? I mean, they died within five months of each other, and they both passed away in the master bathroom of their home. Something just seemed to be very, very wrong. Either that or Simon decided to end his life in the most tragic way possible, which seemed to have been eliminated as a possible reason for his death shortly afterwards. Now though, it seems there might be a much more logical reason for the two deaths. And that reason might be mold. Mold, as we all know, wreaks havoc on the respiratory system. And because they both suffered from pneumonia, the mold just worsened the condition and as a result, both Brittany and Simon died from it. This comes from Celeb Dirty Laundry,
“The investigations into the death of Brittany Murphy and her husband Simon Monjack has taken a new path. Britney passed away from what was believed at the time to be pneumonia complicated by her abuse of prescription drugs and her husband passed away five month later of the same cause. They both died in the same house.
Apparently the Los Angeles Department of Public Health is looking into the matter because they think mold may have actually killed them both. Because both of them had pneumonia and because mold attacks the respiratory system they believe mold may have been the contributing factor in their death. Brittany’s mother Sharon is allowing investigators to examine their home in West Hollywood.”
Well this is not good news at all. But I am happy about one thing, and that’s the fact that all these rumors about Brittany abusing prescription drugs might finally come to a rest. Once again, our thoughts go out to Brittany and Simon’s family. I still can’t watch a movie of hers without feeling incredibly saddened by her passing that was far, far too soon.
