On tonight’s episode of Hollywood Medium, Tyler Henry comes in contact with a deceased Brittany Murphy when sitting down with actress Jaime Pressly. People know Murphy from her role as Tai in the movie Clueless, starring in Just Married with ex Ashton Kutcher and appearing in many other films as well as TV spots. And, when Henry begins to contact Murphy, he says that:
We have a younger woman who’s stepping forward who feels like she passed away too soon, and when she’s coming through, she’s making my lungs hurt quite, quite a bit. Mentally this feels strange, physically this feels strange … I just saw Britney Spears, so that’s usually a reference to the name Britney.
Pressly, says the name Brittany Murphy in response …
Henry also says that the spirit felt she was in a manipulative situation in her life and was badly influenced. Throughout her marriage to husband Simon Monjack, there were several reports that friends and family felt he was not good for Murphy.
On December 20, 2009, firefighters responded to a call that Murphy had collapsed in her bathroom. Murphy was then transported to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where she died at 10:04 a.m. after going into cardiac arrest. In 2010, the Los Angeles County coroner stated that the primary cause of Murphy’s death was pneumonia, with secondary factors of iron-deficiency anemia and multiple drug intoxication. The report released said that Murphy had a range of over-the-counter and prescription medications in her system, including “elevated levels” of hydrocodone, acetaminophen, L-methamphetamine and chlorpheniramine. The death was ruled as an accident. On May 23, 2010, her widower Simon Monjack, was found dead at their home with similar symptoms. His cause of his death was ruled as acute pneumonia and severe anemia. There was speculation that toxic mold in the home could be a factor. Murphy was just 32 years old when she died.
When Murphy died in 2009, Pressly spoke to Pop Sugar about the friendship they had shared and how their connection had fallen apart when Murphy married her husband. She also said that Murphy’s passing broke her heart.
The Brittany Murphy Foundation was established in January 2010 as a charitable fund for children’s arts education. It also supported the USO and cancer research.
