Days after Brittany Murphy’s father, Angelo Bertolotti, declared his intent to sue Lifetime for its biopic The Brittany Murphy Story, he has revealed shocking details about his daughter’s death.

During a new interview in which Bertolotti was asked his opinion about the investigations of Brittany and her husband, Simon Monjack, he bluntly responded, “Sharon Murphy [Brittany’s mom] should be interviewed and investigated, first and foremost.”

He furthered his explanation by saying:

“Let her explain why she had my daughter execute a will, leaving everything to her mother and specifically excluding Simon. Let Sharon explain why she decided to do this right after Brittany and Simon told her of their plan to move to New York and have a baby. Let Sharon clarify how she was planning to support herself for the first time in decades, once Brittany moved away. Let her talk about auctioning off Brittany’s underwear, passport, SAG card and clothes. There are many unanswered questions that have to be addressed. Out of three people living together in the same house, only one survives and benefits financially.”

When asked the follow-up question, “Do you suspect Sharon Murphy of being involved in the untimely deaths of Brittany and Simon?” Mr. Bertolotti responded, “Yes, I do.”

As it was previously reported, Bertolotti and his ex-wife have been accusing each other of being involved with Brittany’s tragic death that happened in December 2009. Most recent lab reports allegedly suggest the actress, who died at age 32, may have been poisoned.

“By the time Brittany collapsed in her bathroom there was probably nothing the paramedics or hospital staff could have done to save her,” pathologist Dr. Richard Shepherd recently stated. “But had she been taken to the hospital 24 hours earlier and given intravenous drugs, there is a very good chance she would have survived and would still be here today.”
