Celebrity - News

In 2009, fans were shocked when they learned that actor and singer Brittany Murphy of "Clueless" fame had been found dead at her home. Even more shocking were the mysterious circumstances surrounding her death, and what she was doing in her final days may help explain her tragic passing away.
Murphy's family friend Alex Ben Block wrote that the actor contracted Staphylococcus aureus (AKA staph) while in Puerto Rico to film a movie, along with her husband Simon Monjack and her mother Sharon. Murphy's mother and husband contracted staph first, followed by Murphy herself.

Murphy's condition deteriorated quickly; Block wrote that she took a large amount of antibiotics, antidepressants, and cough and cold medicine. She also took anti-inflammatory medicine due to pain from her period, which was her second in a month, causing "anemia that cut her red-blood count to a quarter of normal."

The medication did not alleviate Murphy's symptoms, and on the final evening of her life, Block wrote that her had turned blue, and her lungs were filled with fluid. Murphy tried holistic treatments until attempting to see a physician, but her never made it. Her official cause of death was pneumonia.
