Meet 'Conjack,' Brittany Murphy's Hubbie

When Brittany Murphy died on Sunday, attention turned to her husband, who fought to save her. Who is Simon Monjack? He met Brittany when she was 17, but they did not marry until 2007. Nicknamed “Conjack” by some, Monjack has been accused by Factory Girl director George Hickenlooper of suing to get an executive producer credit on the film after he contributed story material so that he can scam his way on to other productions. Hickenlooper used the opportunity of Monjack's wife's death to slam him, recently blogging, “He is a con man and a bad guy. When Brittany married him I warned her and warned her as did so many others. I only hope to God that this creep wasn't instrumental in her sad sad demise.”
