Simon Monjack, husband of the late Brittany Murphy, has cancelled tomorrow night's memorial and scheduled launch for The Brittany Murphy Foundation, citing "family illness."
Guests, who were asked to donate $1,000 for an individual, $10,000 for a company, were notified of the cancellation by e-mail.
"So sorry but the memorial has been canceled due to an illness in the
family. Â I'll let you know when they postpone it for," read the letter.
Simon Monjack had been highly criticized for the event which was planned just a little more than a month after Murphy's death, with many people accusing him of trying to profit off the passing of his late wife.
