Simon Monjack Cleaned Out Brittany's Bank Account

We always had a feeling Brittany Murphy's husband Simon Monjack was a shady guy, and now we have proof!

Brittany's former business manager Jeffrey Morgenroth tells People that Simon drained Brittany's cash reserves by 80 percent by the time of her death in December until his own death from anemia and pneumonia in May.

"There were huge amounts of money in [Brittany's] pension plan and bank account, and all of that's gone," says Morgenroth. "I would see it on the statements. There was money being withdrawn by Simon, hundreds of thousands."

Of course Simon's mother paints a completely different picture. His mother Linda tells People magazine, "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."

Just one month after he passed away we found out he had two secret kids that Brittany never knew about. Brittany's mother Sharon found emails from two different women who wanted child support from Simon. According to people who have seen the emails, Simon had a son by one baby mama and a daughter by another.

He reportedly transferred $48,000 in a single transfer. He was also sending money to lawyers and sent someone else in Europe money for a "settlement."

He was always such a shady guy, nothing surprises us about this guy. It's sad that Brittany fell for him and trusted him with her life and finances.
