    Jewish screenwriter Simon Monjack reportedly died of the same conditions that caused the death of his wife, Hollywood actress Brittany Murphy.

    The results of an autopsy have revealed that Mr Monjack, found dead in his California home in May, died from acute pneumonia and severe anemia.

    A Los Angeles coroner said his death was “just like Brittany” and ruled out a rumoured drug overdose.

    Born in North London, Mr Monjack was best known for writing the screenplay for the 2006 Andy Warhol biopic Factory Girl, which starred Sienna Miller.

    He met Ms Murphy, whose mother, Sharon, is Ashkenazi-Jewish, through mutual friends. In 2007 they married a Jewish ceremony.

    Mr Monjack, 39, had said his “world was destroyed” when his wife died in his arms at December 2009. The actress, who shot to fame in the teen film Clueless, was just 32.

    In the aftermath of her death Mr Monjack’s mother told the JC that her son had “lost the love of his life.”

    But she said his faith and the guidance of his Los Angeles rabbi had helped him keep together.
