New York (ANI): Late American actress Brittany Murphy"s husband, Simon Monjack, and her mother Sharon have revealed they are selling the actress" Los Angeles home and moving to New York. The reason for the move has been given as it being too painful to stay on in LA as it reminds them too much of the late actress.
“I decided to move back to my apartment in New York as had been my plan with Brittany," the New York Daily News quoted Monjack as telling E! News. “Sharon said that she always loved New York and L.A. is just too painful for her. So would I mind if she moved too? Of course I don"t. “But I should point out we will be maintaining separate residences.“We have been to hell and back together, and we will need each other"s support as we continue to grieve. “I would not want to be in a different city to Sharon. It was just important to me that Sharon would always have stability," he added.
Murphy, who starred in films like “Clueless" and “Girl, Interrupted", died on December 20 last year at age 32. Last month, the Los Angeles County coroner stated that the primary cause of the actress" death was pneumonia, and listed secondary factors as iron-deficiency anaemia and multiple drug intoxication.
Sharon recently put the West Hollywood home where Murphy died on the market for 7.25 million dollars. Though they will move to Manhattan once it"s sold, Monjack and Sharon plan to jointly purchase a Los Angeles condo in order to make monthly trips back “to visit Brittany".
