(ANI): Brittany Murphy's husband Simon Monjack has trashed rumours
claiming the actress was popping prescription drugs before her
sudden death on December 20. The 'Clueless" star died aged 32 of a
cardiac arrest at her Hollywood Hills home.
She was rushed to hospital by the paramedics after her mother
found her unconscious in the shower. She was later pronounced dead
by the doctors on arriving at the hospital. According to leaked
documents from the Los Angeles County Coroner's office, a variety
of prescription pills were found in her house, reports the Daily
But Murphy's husband, Simon Monjack has assured Murphy, who was
diagnosed with a heart murmur, was just taking painkillers to treat
menstrual cramps. Monjack said: "She was on herbal remedies, that
wouldn't speed up her heart. There was nothing here that could
endanger her, there was prescription medication in the house for
her ''female time'' and some cough syrup. That was it."
The final cause of death is yet to be determined after results
of an autopsy were deferred.
