Brittany Murphy Video Not For Sale Any Longer


Did you know Brittany Murphy was the maid of honor when Soundgarden front man Chris Cornell was married in 2004? I didn't either, but apparently she was and some guest took videos of the ceremony and reception. Either that guest or someone who got the video was selling it on Craigslist and calling it lost footage of Brittany. Well, Chris decided to threaten Craigslist with legal action if the video was not removed. Craigslist removed it, but if it was a guest who took video of the event it is going to be tough to keep it from being sold if it only has Brittany in it. My guess is it will end up on YouTube in a couple of days though and make it worthless for any kind of sale.

Notice I said Soundgarden front man and not former. It appears that Soundgarden is getting back together.

Still amazing to me what lengths people will stoop to just to make a little $. I mean really, who cares? She was bridesmaid at a wedding, a supposedly private affair. Let it be!

Susan said...

Love Chris Cornell. He's the hottest front man from the 90s bands, hands down.

ITA, Sporky. It nauseates me that people try to cash in on everything. Guess that's the American way.

That's crappy that someone is trying to sell it, but I'm still trying to wrap my head around Brittany Murphy and Chris Cornell being besties. Hollywood is super-small, I guess. They all are friends and they all sleep together.

Babs said...

@ ana ng - Wouldn't "Maid of Honor" imply that she was the bride's 'bestie', not the groom's?

Just sayin'.

dj said...

how terrible! who thinks of stuff like this?

Ms Cool said...

Chris Cornell! Did you know he sang the theme song to Casino Royale starring Daniel Craig? Did you know it has been 6 weeks since we've had a photo of Daniel Craig?

Sporky said...

Susan - yeah, it's really looking that way lately. I hate it.

Excellent seque into that, Ms Cool! ;)

If Soundgarden gets back together - it will take a major miracle. As for the wedding? Brit was one of the best pals of (and clients of) Vicky (his wife). Oddly enough, Chris and Vicky met because of Brit, who was also a pal of Susan's. It's a small fucking world people. Example: me, Chris, and two of my other best pals all have daughters the same age - all with the same name. Funny huh. I was in that wedding too - but lost my copy of the vid when I divorced and moved 3 times. Why the fuck anyone wants to sell wedding videos of dead people is not just sick, it's twisted. By the way, if you read these comments and wanna see a trivia fact? Go back to Enty's NYDay posts of reader photos. Number 61. It's me and Chris Cornell playing guitar together. Thus I assure you - if Soundgarden reunites? Despite reports, It'll take a miracle. ;-)

^^^

Chris tweeted the news on his Twitter- so it came from the horses mouth. Directly.

Guess the coffers have run dry- cause there is no other reason for them to reunite, is there?

chihuahuense said...

why would anyone BUY it either? I mean, really? Weddings are bad enough in person.

Himmmm said...

big difference ebtween a reunion SHOW vs. a getting-back-together (like A.i.C.) full deal. easy to misinterpret, but hey? it sells tix and back catalog albums so why not? next up? a michael jackson and jackson 5 reunion - but MJ will only perform via video. you know, from space.

Ms Cool said...

Thanks, Sporky. It is a slow day here.

ana ng said...

Himmmmmm-
You seem like you are on the inside with Cornell. What really happened with him and Susan Silver? I thought they were solid and then he moves to Paris, marries a younger woman, hangs out with Timberland. Care to share any scoop?

sunnyside1213 said...

Yes Himmmmmm, please share more.

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

Himmmmmmm - pls details! I always thought Susan Silver was the Yoko behind the Soundgarden split and that with her out of the equation, a reunion was in the cards.

jbeebs said...

^^ and there was major drama with Susan Silver, a restraining order... I think.

jax said...

why do i picture Matt Dillion in Singles as Himmmmmm? lol..

we like insider scoop here.

bflogurl said...

Ah, Singles. Best. Movie. Ever. How can you beat Matt Dillon, Eddie Vedder and Layne Staley all at once??

Psyched if Soundgarden goes back on tour.....

Maja With a J said...

Himmmm, please tell Chris I still love him and I have since I was 15...Once I went to see Soundgarden play at Circus in Stockholm and we totally made eye contact. Why hasn't he called me? WHY?

Maja With a J said...

*LOL @ jax* yes, the scene where he demonstrates his new car speakers and blows the windows....*L* Chris Cornell is standing on the sidewalk in that scene. I bet that's who he is!!!*L*

Himmmm said...

I say this with all due respect and out of total love: Susan Silver is a psychotic douche nozzle who deservers her own suite in hell where I hope her skin is eaten slowly by rabid maggots with bad breath.

But I meant it in a good way.

If anyone ever doubts what a nice guy Chris is - the fact that he doesn't trash her or wipe her off the face of the earth is proof. I, luckily, am not a nice guy and if I go to hell - the only request I have (other than air conditioning) is that I'm allowed to watch Susan get gang-raped repeatedly by the whole Nazi regeme for eternity. Or maybe that's my idea of heaven - I'll get back to ya on that.

I have always tried not to gossip, honestly, but I'll speak up to defend or correct something if I know otherwise. Thus, anything Susan Silver ever did to anyone is their own issue and not mine. My issue is that she tried to steal credit (and money) from several bands and forced others to do things they never wanted to do. She's the type to offer you drugs, try and screw you in the dressing room, and when you refuse - she cries rape and says you're a junkie. That's Susan.

After he grew a brain and they split, Chris turned his whole life around and deserves nothing but success. HIS success. Chris is a great guy, awesome talent, killer goourmet cook, and sucks ass at basketball. He is the guy who will guest vox for free on an unknown's album just to help out. I'd take a bullet for him (and nearly did). Again, he's no saint and not perfect - but the fact he lived to escape from that beast (Susan) is right up there with the burning bush in terms of "amazing".

Greek chicks rock. :-) I don't speak for Chris or anyone else - just my 2 cents and I'll say it to Susan's face too.

Kat said...

Holy hell, Himmmm!

I, for one, am totally excited about Soundgarden reuniting. For me, they WERE rock in the 90's, and yes, Chris was my primary reason for watching 'Singles' repeatedly.

Glad to read that he's such a nice guy. At least one icon deserves the respect.

Why would anyone try to sell a video of Brittany at a wedding?
In 2004?
Staggering down the aisle?
It's the 'unretouched' toxicology report that will bring big bucks!

Pookie said...

love the insider dish, Hmmmmmm! and yay for cornell being classy enough to threaten craigslist. love it.

MCH said...

Who would want even want to see the footage? Bizarre. I'd rather see wedding footage from HER wedding 'cuz I still can't wrap my brain around that one.

Singles is one of my favorite movies .... "Come to where the flavor is. Come to Debbie country."

Pink Skull said...

Rumor has it there is evidence of her drug use on that tape. that is why cornell did not want to have it released.

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

Himmmmmm - Thanks for the frank assessment. I. Love. It.

Also glad to see there are so many fans of Singles here. I love that film!

Mother Campfire said...

Seriously, #61/Himmmm. Well done. :)

ballyhoo. said...

i'm glad the tape is not going to be sold - some things don't need to be out there just because the public has an insatiable hunger for the taboo.

thanks for the inside scoop, himmmmmmmmmm - very interesting pov!

...*"h"Em"mmmmmmmmmmmm"* can SHUT THE F___K UP. Britt was a "Maid of Honor" @ Cornell's "wedding" because Her FIRST FAKE "fiance" aka *the koke-headed Jeff KWATinetz* was AudioSlave's "manager"...


... "pink skull" = on to *something*. I wonder if that *tape* was the one where the Actress was caught doing drugs on and was subsequently "BLACKMAILED with". Maybe *SKUM-jack* was the 'Craigslist' *seller*...


BTW... Cornell and "grunge" suck a$$. Cornell's "guitarist" aka my online "Em"NEMY Pete Thorne-y aka Pete TW@T can bite my a$$ too... because I'm an "Em"finitely better guitar player and he KNOWS IT. LMAO!!

... *that "said"... I found the m"famous J.R. Watkins excerpt from her *book on "Em"*. The quote here is about the 2002 NYE party in Detroit where Britt FAKED the seizure...

... will post it next "message"....

classalpha said...

... I bolded the pert"Em"nent parts at the bottom. Look at the *prescription meds* Britt was taking WAY BACK IN 2001!!! They are the SAME AS what police found (among *others*) on Her nightstand and all over Her house. Just think about what Her doing *all those drugs* for nearly TEN YEARS DID TO Her - it KILLED HER. Jennifer Watkin's account starts after the *faked seizure* on NYE at the Ponchairtrain Hotel. READ...
"
… A few minutes later, she fell to the floor and started to have a seizure. Brittany's mom blamed Marshall and said she shouldn't have let her daughter get involved with him. I walked out into the hallway and Marshall came out and just put his arms around me. I thought he was never gonna to let go. He seemed so upset and he didn't have anyone to lean on. His aunt was irritated by what was happening and it seemed like she was upset her night was ruined. I just stood there in the hallway, almost holding Marshall up. My husband just looked at me. I shrugged my shoulders. I asked Marshall if there was anything that I could do. He said no and they called him back into the room. When I found out that Brittany was definitely conscious and she was ok, I left.

The next day I went by Marshall's house to check on Brittany. She was sleeping in his room and he was in the kitchen. He was chuckling in a way that told me he was angry and frustrated at the situation. He said "last night was Brittany Murphy at her best!". When I asked what he meant by that he said that she faked the whole thing. I couldn't believe it at first. I mean, why would she do that?

He said it was because he wasn't paying enough attention to her. He said these strippers surrounded him when all of a sudden she fell to the ground. I asked him how he could be so sure she was faking, and he said that he knew because she was talking to him just fine after the incident while she was laying down in the room that he took her to. That is until either her mother would come in or when Marshall confronted her about it being an act. He said she would start acting like she was having a seizure again. He was totally pissed that her mother would blame this all on him when he said she told him she had taken two xanax, two vicuprofens and a valium earlier that day. He had no way of knowing this when he let her drink. Besides, he said that's something she did just about every day. He said she didn't ever just take aspirin for a headache or cramps. He said she broke out the heavy stuff and that it was amazing that she remembered her lines for the movie.

... *continued* ...

"
Marshall was pissed because his party was ruined and according to him, every time he throws a party some chick ruins it. I am guessing that he means Kim. Whenever they were at record release parties or anytime they were out in public, he said she would get drunk and cause a scene, this ended the evening. Marshall can not be linked to drunken outbursts like that. The media is everywhere and they are waiting for something to happen so they can make a buck.

Besides that, it's embarrasing when your woman acts like an idiot. I was gonna say, "Marshall, you can really pick your women!" but his manager Paul Rosenberg beat me to it. He thinks it's hilarious. I'm sure Marshall doesn't.

Well, they were close to finishing 8 Mile and for the rest of time, Marshall avoided Brittany. I kept asking him if he had talked to her about it. He said, "no I don't want to. I don't want nothin to do with her". As usual, he's afraid of a confrontation. He'd rather dodge and run. Even at the 2002 MTV Movie Awards when Marshall was performing onstage, he found out from his manager Paul where Brittany and her mom were sitting so he can make sure he didn't even look in that direction while he was doing his act. I thought that was plain childish. Here it is over five months later and he can't get over it. If you look at Brittany, she is standing up dancing and waving during his part of the show. I told him, "See, she still loves ya". He said, "She's probably just high".


I talked to him not too long ago about Brittany. I said that my daughter was thinking about the good times she and Brittany had. She said she missed her and wants to know if she could have Brittany's number. I reminded Marshall that Brittany did tell her she could call her anytime. The reply that I got from him was "Tell her that it was the drugs she was on that made her fun to hang out with. That wasn't really Brittany. See if she still likes her then". I declined to repeat that to my fourteen-year-old daughter. I wonder what Marshall will do at the movie premier for 8 Mile. It's gonna be hard to dodge her then, huh? It's too bad that their romance didn't last. Out of all the girls Marshall has been with, I liked Brittany the best. "
