Brittany Murphy's Husband Simon Talks About Her Death

Brittany Murphy's husband Simon Monjack finally broke his silence about the sudden and tragic death of his gorgeous wife.

“My world was destroyed yesterday,” an emotional Monjack told Access Hollywood on Monday afternoon.

Murphy lost her life Sunday morning after going into cardiac arrest. She was found unresponsive in her bathroom by her mother Sharon.

“[Her mother] Sharon went into the bathroom because she had been in there a long time. Her mom screamed for me and I ran. Then called 911,” he revealed.

In regards to the "flu like symptoms" she had been experiencing in the days leading up to her death he said, “She had laryngitis. She had been tired at the end of the year. She had made a couple movies.”

He also wanted to clear up rumors that he was a bad influence on Brittany. “I don’t know why anyone would think that,” he said. “She found love. We found love. Brittany didn’t get to where Brittany was with anyone controlling her… Brittany was Brittany.”

An autopsy was performed earlier today but the results have been deferred. Toxicology and neurological reports will have to be conducted in order to learn the cause of death, and the results could take up to five or six weeks to come in.

It's just hard to believe that someone so young can pass away from cardiac arrest. It's just tragic!
