People have long believed that Simon Monjack was a creepy asshole who managed to trick Brittany Murphy into marrying him so he could siphon away all her money until her death. Turns out everyone was wrong. Monjack used up all Brittany’s money even after her death. Ha! Who’s the asshole now?
Brittany’s former business manager Jeffrey Morgenroth says Monjack drained Brittany’s account by 80% before he died in May leaving Murphy’s mom in financial uncertainty.
Morgenroth tells PEOPLE, “There were huge amounts of money in [Brittany's] pension plan and bank account, and all of that’s gone. I would see it on the statements. There was money being withdrawn by Simon, hundreds of thousands.”
Jeanette Bycott, one of Morgenroth’s assistants, says she even once saw Simon’s mom, Linda, ordering Brittany’s mom, Sharon, to leave the Hollywood Hills house Simon and Brittany shared. “Linda started acting like everything belongs to her,” says Bycott. “Before Sharon could say anything, Linda stated the house was now hers.”
Linda Monjack says she doesn’t know what people are talking about and that Simon only got a couple hundred bucks from Brittany’s death which he used to pay off bills.
But Morgenroth describes another shady incident when he went to get Brittany to sign a tax form. He delivered it personally but wasn’t allowed to see Brittany because, according to Simon, she was having a bad hair day. “Simon took [the form] from me. The excuse was her hair was messed up. I was at the front door and Brittany [called down] and said, ‘Hi Jeff, sorry I couldn’t see you, bye.’ It sounded fishy and weird.” Morgenroth also claims Simon cut off Brittany’s cellphone.
Jesus. This tubby bitch sounds worse than Nick Cannon. At least when Nick Cannon digs for gold, Mariah Carey makes him work for it. He has to do stuff like hold an umbrella over her head while she walks across a floor of rose pedals. If Brittany wasn’t a celebrity, I’m pretty sure Simon would have locked her in the basement while he used her money to party with whores upstairs.
