Can the reputation of the late Simon Monjack sink any lower? Yes! People is reporting that according to Brittany Murphy‘s former business manager and accountant Jeffrey Morgenroth, Monjack was “squandering the late actress’s fortune just before his own sudden death in May from pneumonia and anemia, which also killed Murphy.
“‘There were huge amounts of money in [Brittany’s] pension plan and bank account, and all of that’s gone,’ Morgenroth tells People. “I would see it on the statements. There was money being withdrawn by Simon, hundreds of thousands.” Monjack had spent nearly 80 percent of the 32-year-old star’s assets in the months between her death and his own, rattling the financial future of Murphy’s mom,” who technically inherited her daughter’s assets upon her death.
