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."

Wouldn't pharmacy records be covered by privacy laws? I understand this information leaks all the time -- but the *owner* of the pharmacy telling it to TMZ without any subtleties?

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.

Now, enough on Brittany. There must be an individual in TMZ who is so obsessed with Britanny story that it keeps cropping up continuously forever since when...
Now, her face looks like a ghost that never leaves people. Stop it please.

7. Remind me again why i am supposed to feel sorry for these drug addicts?


Because they wouldnt be drug addicts if doctors couldnt continually abuse the law and get away with it. What if this was your kid? Stop being stupid.

It is so brutally sad. Pain Pill addiction is so inhumane. To get off pain pills is monumental. The withdrawal is so painful that most people just stay on the meds until something tragic happens ie: overdoes, arrest and yes death. The pharmacist should have called her doctor and told him what his thoughts and concerns were. Just to cut her off OBVIOUSLY didn't help. She was way too far gone by then. Same with Cory H. How very very sad.

@Miles saying "He wouldn't have done this for you or I."

Actually Miles, prescription drug abuse and prescription "kiting" is not limited to Hollyweird types. Unfortunately, millions of people are addicted to and do the same thing Murphy and her family did.

Very sad. It does seem that her husband and mother were both aware of the problem she had but kept on pumping her full of drugs instead of helping her get OFF the drugs, most likely because she was their "cash cow". And FYI: IT IS ILLEGAL IN THE UNITED STATES TO GET PRESCRIPTIONS UNDER ALIASES, ESPECIALLY BENZO'S AND NARCOTICS. Seriously, he is a disgusting pig and her mother seems to love him, so both of them can ride off into the prison sunset together and let Brit rest in peace....it seems they didn't let her do that in life. sick sick SICK

Why isn't her "husband" and her mother being investigated regarding her death. Am I the only one that finds it peculiar those two are hooked-up together now that she is deceased and/or were they actually "together" before she died?

She was just a future washed-up actress anyway. Once they get into that pattern they almost always remain there.

Maia? I'm TOTALLY weirded out by the whole thing. It's like the mom and hubby are a couple now. I would definitely be looking into her death closer. It's all way too fishy.
