Brittany Murphy's Husband Simon Monjack Found Dead

Five months after the sudden death of actress Brittany Murphy, her husband Simon Monjack has been found dead.

Simon's body was found late Sunday night at his home in the Hollywood Hills, and strangely enough Police spokesman Sgt. Louie Lozano says the preliminary cause of death is "natural causes."

He tells The Associated Press that investigators are still at the scene early Monday and he does not have any more details on Monjack's death.

"We have detectives at scene," Lozano said. "They are conducting their investigation. Once we have further information, we will provide it."

At 9:24 p.m. Sunday, the Los Angeles Fire Department responded to a 911 call for an “unspecified medical aid request,” according to spokesman Brian Humphrey.

Brittany died on Dec. 20, after going into sudden cardiac arrest because of "drug intake," according to the Los Angeles County coroner's office.

Simon Denies Affair With Brittany's Mother

Her death was ruled accidental, the result of pneumonia complicated by an iron deficiency, anemia and multiple drug intoxication.

After her death Simon moved in with Brittany's mother and very recently had to deny rumors of that he was romantically involved with Brittany's mother.

We're pretty shocked about his sudden death, but shortly after Brittany's death we found out they both had several prescriptions written out to them and were taking a cocktail of meds. More details coming soon!
