Simon Monjack, the husband of the late Brittany Murphy, tells People that many of the prescription medications found in their house at the time of her death were for his use. Monjack, in his first interview since Murphy’s death on Dec. 20, tells People that the actress had been suffering from “laryngitis and flu-like symptoms” at the time of her death.
Monjack, who is an oral cancer survivor, explains to People he suffers from migraines and seizures and also has a heart condition. He said that Murphy used Vicoprofen to treat pain from severe menstrual cramps. “She was on an antibiotic and was taking cough medicine,” Monjack says. “No [medications] that could have possibly led to her heart attack.” The toxicology reports to determine Murphy’s cause of death are still pending.
