Brittany Murphy's husband Simon Monjack, who died just five months after his movie-star wife, passed away from pneumonia and severe anemia, says an LA County coroner spokesperson.
Ironically, Simon passed away in the same house as his deceased wife, and like Brittany, was found by Murphy's mother Sharon. Some prescription drugs were also found in his system, but not enough to be lethal, according to CNN.
Brittany Murphy's cause of death was due to a combination of pneumonia, an iron deficiency and multiple drug intoxication.
