Brittany Murphy -- 'Accident' Waiting to Happen

3/19/2010 4:58 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

 Brittany Murphy A Los Angeles pharmacy owner tells TMZ he cut off Brittany Murphy, Simon Monjack and Sharon Murphy just months before Brittany's death because he "thought there was going to be an accident."

Official records show Eddie Bubar, owner of Eddie's Pharmacy, has a list of more than 100 prescriptions he filled for Brittany, Simon and Sharon between January 2008 and August 2009, including Vicodin, hydrocodone, Klonopin, and other drugs under various aliases.

One of the aliases was Lola Manilow Murphy. Bubar tells TMZ the alias was Brittany's. Bubar told investigators a courier would pick the various prescriptions up in an envelope approximately every two weeks with the name "Lola" written on it. TMZ has already reported, such an envelope was regularly delivered to the house.

Bubar tells TMZ he cut off Murphy, Simon and Sharon four months before Brittany died, partly because he believed they were using multiple pharmacies to fill scripts.

Bubar tells TMZ, "We thought there was going to be an accident there."

And we've learned there were other aliases used for prescriptions from another pharmacy, including the names Kathelyn Moore, Trevor Williams and Faith Gosselin.

Simon Monjack confirms with TMZ that he used aliases, along with Brittany and Sharon, because, "You know how this town is." Monjack says, "We're the ones who cut Eddie's Pharmacy off."

As for using the alias Lola Manilow Murphy, remember Barry Manilow's lyric, "Her name was Lola."

She just doesn't look well in any of the above photos. Gaunt, white, bags under eyes, and rather blank. Sickly, IMHO.

Wouldn't it be weird if that happens to the mom? I find it odd that these two still have a relationship. Why are they still together? I guess he is just a big mooch. But if I were Brittany's mom I'd leave that loser behind and change my name!

and you know this    

I think everyone here needs to remember that she was found in her autopsy to have died from pneumonia. If she had enough drugs in her system to die from them, tmz would certainly have reported that long before now. I think we are all jumping to conclusions to judge her over information that is illegal for her pharmacist to be providing to the press in the first place. This jerk is obviously just trying to earn money off her story, and illegally, I might add again. He is not allowed to disclose her medical information like this, and I hope he suffers penalties for it.

I believe Monjak when he said WE CUT THE PHARMACY OFF, NOT THE OTHER WAY AROUND. If they were releasing information of this type sue them.
It should be illegal for a pharmacy to release any kind of information that TMZ claims to have. Legal action should follow on this release of any information of drug purchases from a drug store without a subpoena from a valid law enforcement agency.
Sue that pharmacy immediately.

its called DRUG ADDICTION they were getting her drugs in all different names, maybe the other two had a problem too, but its the life that millions of drug addicts lead evry single day. multiple doctors, multiple pharmacies, multiple dollars it could easily stop by creating a system where pharmacies are able to see what other pharmacies are doing but there are billions of dollars moving around in this stuff, and that wont every happen. its sad its tragic, but its addiction, and its a full time 24/7 job to keep someone addicted to opiates stocked. ive said it once and ill say it a thousand times the only way a person gets clean is to literally lose all there money, then they get so tired of trying to find ways to lie to get money to pay these "doctors" and pharmacists that it becomes too much work and you give up and guess what happens to alot of people when they give up, they get better. when you have a combination of unlimited money and unlimited enablers like this husband, in murphys case and hangers on in other famous peoples case its a longer harder road, for the average person they either finally take the turn to the cheaper darker side being heroinne, or they get help. the addict isnt evil or wanting to live this horrible existance its nothing but fear and anxiety and shame, but when you have enough money and enough people willing to hang on to you for that money and lifestyle it delays the chance of getting well, and in some cases they just die. there are great doctors and there are drug dealers with degrees just like in any profession, good and bad, only you would hope when someone becomes a doctor they would do so to help people , you tack on how much less they make from insurance and god forbid some new insurance plan kicks in and you have desperate doctors who turn to dealers and justify it in there minds . this is life. a note to anyone not in on this kind of life, your not missing anything.

Eddie Bubar needs to have all his records examined and watch the show begin.
He will lose his pharmacy and license but the up side is he can make millions on the book that tells all about all the celeb alias game and what they are taking.

I believe even we hardened tmz'rs would be in for multi shock at what he has to tell us

Perahps instead of Eddie Bubar cutting them off....perhaps he should have called the Police. The fact the she got 100's of perscriptions off him in the 1st place, tells me that Eddie Bubar is one of those doctors. He wouldnt have done this for you and I.

Lock their sorry asses up. All of them.

AGREE!!!! Shame on Simon Monjack and Sharon Murphy...Brittany obviously wasn't looking out for herself, her family should of been looking out for, and now she's gone for life because of carelessness on the part of doctors, pharmacists and her family.

Dear Slutty Whores Rock,

TMZ was quoting Monjack. He split up the words, not TMZ:

"Are there no editors at TMZ? You don't split "cut" from "off" when you are trying to convey "cut off", that's just 8th grade grammar. From the looks of your staff, you don't have many graduates.

no no no, they have this wrong, REMEMBER Simon said Hollywood killed Brittany. I can see usually an alias if one was a celebrity... but, 100 prescriptions in 9 months? Meds every two weeks? Is that how meds are dispensed in Hollywood?

Either way, she is gone too soon. I hope someone is still investigating casue of death.
