Brittany collapsed in the bathroom of her home on December 20, 2009 after suffering from flu-like symptoms for several days.

She was with her mother Sharon and screamed “Mom, I can’t catch my breath, help me” and passed out in her arms and those of her husband Simon Monjack, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The coroner said the cause of death was pneumonia, combined with anemia and “multiple drug intoxication,” both prescription and over-the-counter, including cold medications and painkillers.

“Brittany was…she was a soda bottle; she was the sun. She was so effervescent and awesome and for her to die like that, in such a bloody way and in such a toxic relationship, was just terrible.

Adding: Not only because he’s your friend, but also because everyone can’t see him anymore. »

Breckin revealed he was at Ryan Phillippe’s house when he heard sirens, neither of them realizing it was for Brittany, who lived “five houses down” from Ryan.

“When we all heard it, it was terrible,” he noted.

“Brittany was so talented, and only the surface had been treated. She was such a good singer, and seeing how many people were getting into music and movies, I was like, ‘Oh, I would have loved to see Brittany do that,'” he said.

Breckin remembers auditioning for The Clueless with Brittany and how “easy” it was, since they played boyfriend/girlfriend several times.

After Clueless, they worked together for eight years on King of The Hill.

Breckin voiced Joseph Gribble, Mr. Haggerty and Kid #2.

Brittany voiced Luanne Platter, Obadiah the Donkey and Sir Reginald Featherbottom.

“And then Britt and I did King of the Hill together for eight years. And then I took over the role that she played – not when she died, before that, like the character’s voice changed and I took over, but she was still Luanne from King of the Hill .

Brittany Murphy died at age 32 on December 20, 2009, five months before her husband Simon Monjack died of the same causes – raising questions about the causes of their deaths.

In 2021, an HBO Max Films documentary examined Brittany’s death in a documentary titled What Happened, Brittany Murphy?.

Her death and that of her husband five months later have intrigued the world since his passing, with some theories including mold in their home as well as Simon’s controlling nature over her.

Brittany and Simon married in May 2007 and lived in his Hollywood Hills home, which was previously owned by Britney Spears.

Brittany bought it in 2003 for $3.9 million.

The mold theory, however, was rejected in 2010 by the medical examiner’s office.

In 2013, Brittany’s father, Angelo Bertolotti, requested a new toxicology report, in which he suggested she might have been poisoned.

He went on Good Morning America in November 2013 and said that “there was definitely a murder situation here,” and added that “it’s poison,” via THR.

His mother Sharon had disputed this assertion.

Filmmakers spoke to The Corner about the cause of her death, who wondered how she became so anemic, according to Rolling Stone.

“To develop anemia of this nature, she was not eating. How did all this develop? the corner told them.

Simon allegedly told Brittany to lose more weight and get plastic surgery during their marriage, according to Rolling Stone.

He also allegedly refused to take Brittany to the hospital in her final days, which could have saved her life.

Simon had two secret children, which Brittany was unaware of while he was alive, and he allegedly lied about his own health and stated that he had cancer and was cured of it through the use of shark cartilage, according to the documentary.

He allegedly spent $3 million of Brittany’s money over three years and was Brittany’s agent, business manager and makeup artist.

A month after her death, Simon told The Hollywood Reporter that Brittany had a feeling there was something wrong in the house and tried to avoid going there at all costs.

Brittany had thought the house was unlucky, Simon said in January 2010 (four months before his death), per THR.

They had planned to move to New York in 2010 to start a new life and have children together.
