So, if your son just died, what would be the first thing you would do? Would you be able to do anything or would you be grieving? Well, if you are Linda Monjack, you start drooling and seeing dollar signs in your head. Almost immediately after Simon died, Linda tried to kick Sharon Murphy out of Brittany's house. Linda was under the impression that Linda owned it now. Apparently she was devastated that she did not.
However, I am pretty sure she is not hurting for cash. Brittany Murphy's business manager told Kneepads that since Brittany died, Simon drained about 80% of the money from the bank accounts.
"There were huge amounts of money in [Brittany's] pension plan and bank account, and all of that's gone. I would see it on the statements. There was money being withdrawn by Simon, hundreds of thousands."
Who knew Brittany had that much? It sounds like she had a good business manager. He said that after Brittany married Simon he did not really ever get to see her or even talk to her because Simon controlled access to her and also cut off her cell phone. Everything had to go through him.
As for the hundreds of thousands of dollars? Well, this is what Linda Monjack said. "If there is money missing I have no idea where it is. 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."
Umm, how is it possible his debts were just a few hundred bucks? I bet Linda has an idea where the hundreds of thousands of dollars is. I bet no one goes looking for it though.
