Simon Monjack Delayed Heart Surgery to Work on Brittany Murphy Foundation

Brittany Murphy's oft-considered-suspicious husband Simon Monjack was due for a heart bypass, but he kept putting it off in order to dedicate himself to the September gala he was planning for the Brittany Murphy Foundation, which aids inner-city children in their discovery of the arts. So Monjack is essentially a martyr.
"Simon needed a [heart] bypass. I was told he needed a bypass, and I said to him, 'Simon, you have so much going on, let's keep you healthy.' I said, 'You want to be healthy. Don't you?' He said yes, but he said, 'The bypass can wait,'" his rep, Roger Neal revealed to People.
What is your take on this tragedy? Was Monjack really as much of a letch as the press made him out to be when he married Murphy? Or was he a smear campaign victim? Or are people just speaking not-ill of the dead?
