Brittany Murphy’s Pharmacist Had Cut Her Off

More details have emerged on the sad case of recently deceased actress Brittany Murphy. TMZ reports that a Los Angeles pharmacy owner, Eddie Bubar, had to cut the actress off after she’d brought in too many prescriptions. His pharmacy had over 100 prescriptions between Janury 2008 and August 2009, for the actress, her husband Simon Monjack and her mother Sharon Murphy.

Brittany also used aliases to fill her prescriptions and sent in a courier to pick up her medication. Simon insists that the use of a pseudonym was to keep the press (and uh, TMZ) off their tail and that they were the ones who stopped going to Eddie’s Pharmacy.

Whether or not that’s the case 100 prescriptions for someone who was not chronically ill seems excessive and in light of the cocktail of drugs found in Brittany’s system at the time of her death makes us believe the pharmacist’s side of this sordid tale.
