Simon Monjack Drained Brittany Murphy's Funds, Their Mothers Now FeudingMara Siegler
Allegations have come to light from Brittany’s former money manager Jeffrey Morgenroth that Simon blasted through Brittany’s fortune at a record rate, withdrawing hundreds of thousands of dollars at a time.
“There were huge amounts of money in [Brittany’s] pension plan and bank account, and all of that’s gone,” he tells People. “I would see it on the statements.”
Now, Brittany’s mother Sharon has been left with nothing and is feuding with Simon’s mother Linda who tried to order her out of the couple’s former house.
“Linda started acting like everything belongs to her,” says Jeffrey’s assistant Jeannette Bycott. “Before Sharon could say anything, Linda stated the house was now hers.”
Linda is also denying that Simon used any of Brittany’s money. “If there is money missing I have no idea where it is. He didn’t get much, maybe a few hundred dollars, and he paid off his debts with it. He was spending his time crying his eyes out most of the time. He was in a terrible state.”
Jeffrey is also claiming that Simon had a weird control over the actress while she was alive, going so far as to cut off her cell phone use.
He tells of going to their house to get Brittany to sign a form. “I went down to the deadline and delivered it personally, and I couldn’t even see Brittany. 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.”
I truly hope this is just a odd occurrence and that Simon and Brittany had a wonderful relationship while they were alive.
