Brittany Murphy Foundation Returns Donations

2/15/2010 4:05 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The Brittany Murphy Foundation has re-opened its website after TMZ's story this weekend -- and promises to give back all the donations people made while it figures out that whole "we weren't really a charity" thing.

Brittany Murphy

TMZ broke the story that the foundation -- run by Brittany Murphy's husband, Simon Monjack and mother, Sharon Murphy -- hadn't filed the necessary documents to qualify as a charity or nonprofit group. As soon as we called the foundation for comment, the website immediately shut down.

But late Sunday the website resurfaced with a message: It would return all the donations "until we have our non-profit status approved before proceeding to insure that we can truly honor Brittany's charitable desires."

The website is no longer taking donations and now holds itself out as a private foundation which awaits 501(c)3 non-profit status.

May you rest in peace, Brittany. You were a beautiful and talented actress. I've seen many of your movies and you were excellent in almost every role. You could have had a career in music, too.

Sorry, but if they were so disorganised that they rushed into this with out the proper papers or a plan, exactly what were they planning to do with the money, and how were they going to go about it? There is a reason that charities are regulated. I sympathise with their loss, but this was not such a great idea.

It's time for Brittany to rise from the dead and Zombie Simon's fat ass. This man is a disgrace to Brittany's name and career. Hand cuffs, please.

Thy got caught! Criminal conspiracy plain and simple. Trailer trash trying to make money off of the dead. There are no words to describe the mother and husband's behavior in all this. No one can now question why America still has the death penalty after watching these two since the death of Ms. Murphy. If the guy can't afford hair plugs he should just shave it and not try to steal money from a well meaning public.
