Brittany Murphy’s widower Simon Monjack is speaking out again about his wife’s death, and he and her mother are saying major movie studio Warner Brothers is responsible for Murphy’s death.

Monjack said in a recent interview with The Daily Beast that the studio canceled Murphy’s contract and dropped her from the sequel to Happy Feet just two weeks before her death. He is convinced the stress of the firing sparked a heart attack that killed Murphy, though no official cause of death has been determined.

“They killed her,” Monjack said. “She was devastated.”

Prior to the cancellation of Murphy’s contract, the actress was fired from a film called The Caller. Rumors blamed Monjack’s difficult behavior on the film’s set in Puerto Rico for her firing.

“It’s a cruel town,” he says. “Warner Brothers relied on conjecture and hearsay about the Puerto Rico film for why they canceled Brittany’s role in Happy Feet. You’re disposable as an actress or actor.”

    Oh please! People get fired everyday and are is MUCH worst shape than Brittany Murphy was. Brittany’s husband needs to mourn the loss of his beautiful wife, and not assess blame.

    I have to agree with Deborah — this isn’t the way to go Simon. It really looks as if you’re just trying to milk more money out of Brittany.
