I hate talking about dead people, I really do. Especially dead people who were really sketchy while alive. Case in point: Simon Monjack. If you thought his general sketchiness would die with him, you’re wrong. TMZ is reporting that after Simon’s death, his mom, brother and therapist came to the home Simon was sharing with Brittany Murphy’s mom Sharon, and they went through his things. When they left, they took his laptop, and when they went through it, they found Simon had been communicating with two different women about two different love children he had, one a son, one a daughter.
TMZ has learned …a laptop computer has unearthed a secret Simon Monjack carried to his death — he had two kids.
Simon’s mom, brother and therapist stayed at Simon’s home last week with Brittany Murphy’s mom, Sharon Murphy. We’re told when they left they took Simon’s laptop.
At some point they went through the computer and found emails from two women who wanted money from Simon for child support. According to people who have reviewed the emails, Simon had a son by one baby mama and a daughter by another.
Also in the computer … wire transfers of large amounts of money — as much as $48,000 in a single transfer. Simon was sending the money to lawyers, as well as someone in Europe for some sort of settlement.
We’re told Simon’s mom and brother felt the coroner should have the computer and handed it over. The coroner’s office is currently reviewing the contents.
Sharon went ballistic and filed a theft report with cops.
I know some people choose to think that Simon really loved and adored Brittany, and that his heart was broken when she died, and that was what led to his death. Bless you for your optimism. Personally, I think Simon was so very shady in life, that we’re only now getting a good glimpse of his true shadiness now, in death. It would be interesting to know the ages of these love children, and if one or both of them were conceived when he was with Brittany. I would also be interested in hearing more about Monjack’s true financial state, and if he was really as wealthy as he claimed. As for Sharon and the police report… ugh. If he had children, they are his heirs. Not his mother-in-law.
