Did Perez Hilton Predict Brittany Murphy’s Death?
It’s been 48 hours since I heard the news that Brittany Murphy—who I’ve loved since her days on that Disney Channel show, “The Torkelsons”—had died at the way, way too young age of 32 after cardiac arrest, and I’m still shocked. But there’s one person who isn’t: Perez Hilton. Earlier this month, he appeared on a California radio show called “AJ In The Morning.” When asked who in Hollywood he thought was heading towards a Michael Jackson-like demise, he said, “Brittany Murphy, maybe.” Eerie. And when he first posted about her death on his site, he wrote, “It’s absolutely devastating. Especially because this comes as no surprise! We, and those who knew Brittany personally, saw this coming. That does not make this any less horrible.” [SF Gate] In other Brittany-related news, TMZ has gotten their hands on the coroner’s report and is saying that paramedics found a ton of prescription pills in her bedroom—some prescribed to her, some to her mom, and some third parties. It’s yet to be determined if this is what caused her death. So sad. [TMZ]
