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."

To all the idiots blaming Simon and/or Sharon, SNAP OUT OF IT!? Do you really hear what you are saying?? Blaming a friend or family member is absurd! If she had a drug problem then she and only she is to blame, period! Of course you can say if drug dealers didn't deal or docs didn't prescribe well then drug companies shouldn't have created it and so on and so on. Addicts are just that, addicts....and addicts become a completely different person as the need for the drug gets stronger and stronger. Without even realizing it or trying (most of the time)they learn how to be an addict - how to obtain it legally, illegally, how to lie, how to cover up, how to make their friends/family believe they aren't an addict when confronted....so yes, Simon or Sharon (if not addicts themselves) may have questioned it but she may have pulled the wool over their eyes easily. So stop blaming them - if they ignored it completely the worst it makes them is enablers who didn't know what to do or believe or it makes them stupid, niave people thinking she'd be ok but it doesn't make them killers or to blame in a legal way. If that were the case then there would be a long line of guilty people facing legal action in every addicts life. Stop being stupid by saying foolish things just to feel you add to the post because you come off dumber than Simon and Sharon. I'd like to see any one of you that blame him in the same situation, sure, you say you'd know what to do and it would save the victim but you have no clue. I had a friend who luckily realized their problem with drinking and got help - as I participated in their recovery by going to open meetings, going to events, researching, hearing stories etc, I learned just how addicts work and how easy it is for them to prove they are not addicts. So wise up, educate yourselves and open your eyes to real life instead of what you THINK happens in life and then give your opinion - you would be amazed at how differently your outlook would be!

It is addicts like this that makes it hard for pain patients, such as myself, from getting the medications we need to control pain. I have had two pain clinic doctors(one that moved his practice, which pushed me to my second doctor) and both have told me horror stories of their work in pain management.

There will be nothing learned from these incidents and people who are abusing prescriptions drugs will continue to abuse them. Instead of making it harder for those that need these drugs to reduce pain or other ailments, the various governments(Federal and state) in the United States, and elsewhere, needs start enforcing the existing law more stringently. The DEA needs to be better utilized, but not to the point that they scare away doctors from pain management and from writing whatever prescriptions that are needed.

Sure, that is all in the perfect world, but I can dream.

Don't blame her husband and mother for being enablers. She was the spoiled, junkie actress. No one forced pills down her throat. Hmmm... So much for "poor Brittany dying from H1N1"

How sad that the two people who should have been helping her, instead apparently fed her addiction and contributed to her untimely death. Shame on them! RIP, Britanny!

yes 47, that's exactly what happened. Instead of a shooting gallery, Brittany's house was a pill popping gallery. Everyone was so high and self medicated they were lucky to be able to dress themselves. Neglect, enabling, controlling, addiction. End GAME.

Guess this explains why the mom and Simon are still cozy. They are probably moving to NY so they can get a new set of pharmacists.

Why blame other people? She was an adult who chose to put those drugs into her body. I'm sure nobody forced her. Stop blaming her husband.
