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.

Two friends that were supposed to travel with him called the police when they still couldn’t reach him 16 hours later. The police went to his apartment and busted down the door. They found him in bed, in sweatpants—next to bottles of prescription pills and a crack pipe, which is extremely sad because he’d been sober for more than a decade and had just wrapped an MTV show called “Gone Too Far” where he helped inspire drug addicts to overcome their addictions. See an interview he did about the show above. [People]
