Brittany Murphy's cause of death has been determined. It appears the actress died from pneumonia.

It is being described exactly as community acquired pneumonia, iron deficiency anemia, and multiple drug intoxication.

Multiple drug intoxication? So it appears maybe, just maybe, it was a mixture of her diabetic medicine along with other medicine and what she was taking for the flu, which is what her mom was saying all along.

We will keep you updated as more news comes out.

As they await the toxicology reports, Brittany Murphy's husband and mom say that her death had nothing to do with drugs.

They believe her death was caused by natural causes.   There was a report of about 10 medications prescribed to Brittany but Simon says most of those were his. 

Sharon Murphy said her daughter would not even drink on New Year's Eve or take too much caffeine and had a fear of dying.  

Simon Monjack said he is thinking of suing TMZ for the release of the prescription medication as well as the Los Angeles County Coroner's Office for selling TMZ that information. 

Simon has released several photos of Brittany on his own site, which you can see HERE.

There will be a public memorial planned for the end of February, and hopefully the toxicology reports will be back by then.

What do you think?-Dr.FB

Elton John is reportedly helping Eminem battle some addictions.  He has been helping Eminem battle his drug addictions for about a year but is just now making it public.

One has to wonder if this was made public as Eminem's profile has remained low after the death of his 8 Mile co-star Brittany Murphy, whose death at this time is still not known although people think it may have been prescription meds.-Dr.FB

Brittany Murphy was laid to rest Christmas Eve at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Hollywood. 

Michael Jackson's memorial took place there but he was actually buried at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale.

A lot of Brittany Murphy's celeb friends did not attend the funeral due to Brittany's husband Simon Monjack and them not being in favor of him.  I am sorry but situations like that, you put aside differences to pay your respects to your fallen friend.  Respect is stronger than pride.

We still do not know what lead to the actresses death at this time.-Dr.FB
