Brittany Murphy's Cause Of Death: Actress Killed By Toxic
Mold Says Mother
Brittany Murphy's mother claims toxic mold found in her
daughter's Hollywood home is to blame for both Brittany and
her son-in-law's Simon Monjack's deaths.
Brittany died of pneumonia in 2009 and just months later her
husband suffered the same fate.
TMZ reports Brittany's mother Sharon Murphy claims the
people who built the house are to blame for the mold that
caused their illnesses. In a new lawsuit, Sharon alleges she
was misled by her lawyers and tricked into giving up her
rights to sue the builders for wrongful death.
According to TMZ, Murphy's mother says her lawyers convinced
her to accept a settlement offer for the construction
problems in January, but they didn't explain that the
settlement included a stipulation so that she would never be
able to sue the builders for their alleged role in her
Not content with this, Sharon has hired a new attorney to
sue her former ones for legal malpractice and demanding they
pay her what she could have won in a wrongful death suit.
When Murphy passed away two years ago at the age of 32, many
speculated her death was drug or eating disorder related,
however it was determined the actress died of natural causes.
