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."

Why are all people in Hollywood so unhappy after they get fame & fortune?
I'm glad I'm a nobody and drug free!

Pharmacists and doctors are licensed by State Boards. The purpose of these Boards is to protect the public. They need to start revoking licenses of many, many people to put them out of business and send a message.

Brittnay has had more 'fame time' with her death story than she did when she was alive. She was cute and had potential until she hooked up with her f'd-up husband. Perhaps fame isn't suppose to be strectched so thin...everyone is not meant to be the 'it' person for years and years. Bittnay became a hanger on to her 15 minutes...

Poor Britney just wasn't getting the man/woman loving she so richly deserved.

If she had been getting regular loving then she wouldn't have died in her own vomit on the bathroom floor.
What is it with all these pill heads? Such unhappy people.
Why hasn't her husband been arrested for getting all the meds for her?
if he truly loved her then he wouldn't have killed her.
More loving is needed. More nudity.

It sounds like all three were using pain pills. Or, if not, it was only Britanny getting the drugs. Her mom and her husband should have put a stop to this abuse but, again, I think they all were involved. How could a mother enable a child like that. There's something funny going on with the Mother and Monjack. They are moving to New York together?? Oh well, I'm so sorry that the talented Ms. Murphy is no more.

simon monjack is pure slime. when all is said and done we are going to find out that he is at the bottom of all of this. poor brittany. she needed love and care; not an enabler. i don't know what he and her mom are doing together but they both look shadier and shadier with every report.
RIP brittany, you were in a lot of pain and you deserved better than this.

I really like her. You know the movie "Clueless" Donald Faison's character made me want braces (even though me teeth were straight).I never had to get them but I really wanted to be cool...

and you know this    

Isn't it totally against hippa laws for this pharmacist to give this information to the press? You can't release info about someone's medical history, esp aliases and what meds they were on. Hope the family sues his ass off.

It sounds like they should look at the husband too. Did he get mother and daughter hooked on pills? R.I.P Brittany

RE:::"""14. 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?

Eeewwww.....I recall reading they were moving to NY together,but to me, it just peaked my interest( & bothered me) a WHY?Just couldn't wrap my head around the 2 of them 'together',YUCK! So,you're saying they 'hooked up'?For real? Can't stand the turd always blaming 'this town' crap....& his "cause I don't look like Ashton Kutcher" remark was way too,THAT's why he thinks people didn't like/accept him? Needs a lobotomy, this guy. With all the weirdos here in NYC, he still wouldn't fit in..... then he'd say it was 'this town' that was to blame for him being such an unacceptable sleazy greasy fugly wart.Thinking this mom has some issues,like blinders perhaps.Keeping anyone in that haze long enough gives one alotta 'power' over them,huh?Never could understand why it was her mother who found her & not the hubby.....didn't they share a bedroom??

This is the age of technology. Why do we not have databases that cross reference who is getting prescriptions filled from where? Why are people allowed to use aliases? Why wasn't "Lola" asked for ID? Laws need to be change, and people need to be prosecuted.

Yes, laws need to be made to stop people from Dr. shopping and pharmacy shopping. HIPPA laws should not exclude pharmacies from communicating with each other. After all, pharmacists are licensed like Doctors.
