Brittany Murphy's husband Simon Monjack found dead

The British-born husband of late actress Brittany Murphy has been found dead, just five months after he lost his wife.

The body of screenwriter Simon Monjack was discovered at his Los Angeles home, police said yesterday.

His death is said to be due to “natural causes” and police said there was no sign of foul play.

Clueless and 8 Mile star Murphy (32) died in her husband's arms in December after collapsing in the shower.

An inquest found she died from pneumonia complicated by an iron deficiency, anaemia and drug intoxication.

She married Monjack, from north London, in a Jewish ceremony in Los Angeles in May 2007. Police spokesman Sergeant Alex Ortiz said: “There were no signs of foul play or any criminal activity involved.”
