Actress Brittany Murphy, who died on December 20, 2009, was apparently born with mitral valve prolapse, because of which one of the valves in her heart couldn"t close properly. According to her husband, Simon Monjack, this illness always haunted her.
And while doctors have stated that it is a situation that can be handled and saw no reason for Murphy to worry, Monjack reveals that she had a fear of dying young. Murphy died due to cardiac arrest at the age of 32. However, the cause of her death hasn"t been found out yet.
