Appointing her mother Sharon as the sole heir of her estate, Murphy excluded her husband Simon Monjack from her will.
Late actress Brittany Murphy left a will at the time she passed away on Sunday, December 20, in which she appointed her mother Sharon as the sole heir of her estate. It is reported that the 32-year-old film star created the will several years ago and it is not known if she amended it or not.
"Brittany's mother was very involved in her life," a source tells E! News. "She really pushed Brittany into the entertainment industry." The source then adds, "I bet changing her will didn't even cross [Brittany's] mind. Sharon was the closest person in Brittany's life, and her mom made sure it was always that way. It seemed like they both relied on each other."
Murphy's screenwriter husband Simon Monjack, meanwhile, was excluded from the will. Monjack himself has not yet issued a single comment on the report.
