Brittany Murphy's father responds to Sharon Murphy's open letter

In response to Sharon Murphy’s open letter to The Hollywood Reporter, AJ Bertolotti said, “This was to be expected from a disgruntled ex-wife, who even attempted (unsuccessfully) to question my paternity. Our contentious relationship through the years prompted Brittany and I to meet in secret on many occasions.

I find it interesting that Sharon reached out to the same outlet she attacked after a derogatory article was published by THR following Brittany’s death (Sharon said that Alex Ben Block's statements about Brittany's death in The Hollywood Reporter were "100-percent untrue"). It was written by Alex Ben Block, who also met with the Department of Homeland Security/ICE officials to discuss their extensive surveillance of Brittany and Simon.

Sharon falsely exclaims that I somehow stand to profit from learning the true cause of death of my daughter and son-in-law. That is completely untrue. I haven’t sued anyone for money with respect to Brittany’s death – Sharon did (twice and also considered suing the Los Angeles Coroner). I haven’t asked anyone for donations with respect to Brittany’s foundation – Sharon did and was later forced to return the monies collected under false pretenses.

I haven’t sold and would never dream of parting with any of my baby’s personal belongings – Sharon did (including Brittany’s passport, her SAG card, her used underwear, swimwear, clothes, etc.) I didn’t benefit nor ever sought to benefit from Brittany’s or Simon’s life insurance policies – Sharon did. After collecting on those life insurance policies, Sharon let Simon’s grave sit without as much as a headstone for years, until his mother Linda Monjack paid to have one put in. At this point, with respect to Brittany’s and Simon’s untimely deaths, I would ask people to think: Cui Bono? Therein lies the answer to this mystery.”
