Brittany Murphy's Family: She Never Did Drugs

1/21/2010 7:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Brittany Murphy's mother and husband just appeared on "Today" -- one month after her death -- to slam rumors the actress used drugs and had an eating disorder.

Simon Monjack & Sharon Murphy: Click to watch
Simon Monjack says his wife wasn't taking anything "for her mood, anorexia, mental illness" -- adding she only used prescriptions for her "menstrual time."

The two also took aim at Warner Bros. and anyone involved in "Happy Feet 2" -- a sequel offered to Brittany and then taken off the table after rumors of her being fired from another movie started circulating -- saying that anyone who takes the role intended for her is "horrible."

selfish people.. so the happy feet movie should just die? what about the rest of the cast? maybe these parents need to think a little more about the big picture and realize that the world doesn't revolve around their desires

Hey, a job's a job. The dead girl had no signed contract stating that ONLY she could lend her voice to a cartoon. Give me a break! These parents need to stay home, keep away from the press and simply grieve for their child. I'd say they're trying to get their 15 minutes of fame. I think THEY are horrible. Of COURSE their kid took drugs! They were all over the place. It doesn't matter if they were legal or not - drugs kill when abused.

Of course she was taking drugs. It didn't take an Einstein to see she was on something. Her looks even started changing.

the fact that he's calling anyone who takes the role "horrible" is completely ridiculous. people can't refuse roles that are most likely going to offer them A LOT of money because she's passed on. it's not like she lost the role because she died, they pulled the role from her a week before. she's gone, but life goes on. they can't just cancel the second movie because this guy is horrified at the prospect of anyone but her doing the voice of gloria. get over it.

and 4 plates of food? i don't think so. not unless it's one of those restaurants with ridiculously small portions, which i'm doubting.
