Brittany Murphy's Mother Says Toxic Mold Killed Actress
Tue, 20 Dec 2011 11:49:37
The late Brittany Murphy's mother is launching a bombshell claim that toxic mold found in her daughter's home for killing her daughter and son-in-law and is launching a lawsuit against her former lawyers for allegedly preventing her from filing a wrongful death case.
Murphy died in 2009 after suffering a cardiac arrest linked to pneumonia and anemia, while Murphy's husband Simon Monjack died five months later from the same ailment.
Ma Murphy is claiming toxic mold killed the couple and is blaming the builders of the property for causing the deaths. She has filed a lawsuit against her former lawyers for legal malpractice, claiming they duped her into agreeing to a settlement and giving up her rights to sue the property builders.
According to TMZ, the distraught mother alleges the attorneys convinced her to accept a settlement over the construction problems in January, but failed to explain to her that she would then be unable to take action against the builders.
What a mess. Good luck to Ms. Murphy on sorting through all of this drama.
