Brittany Murphy Dies at 32

 

Movies such as Clueless, Just Married, and 8 Mile come to mind when you think about Brittany Murphy.  Last night, she died from what doctors are calling natural causes at age 32 yrs old.  The death is very unexpected and she will be truly missed.  She died after collapsing in the bathroom.   She is due to appear in Sylvester Stallone’s upcoming film, “The Expendables,” set for release next year.

She dated Ashton Kutcher, who costarred with Murphy in 2003’s romantic comedy “Just Married.”

Kutcher sent a message on Twitter Sunday morning about Murphy’s death: “2day the world lost a little piece of sunshine,” Kutcher wrote. “My deepest condolences go out 2 Brittany’s family, her husband, & her amazing mother Sharon.”

Reggie Bush & Kim Kardashian end there 2-year relationship...

Reggie Bush & Kim Kardashian end there 2-year relationship...

Recently plenty of rumors have been spreading about these two.  From Reggie’s cheating ways to the problem of Kim Kardashian always craving the spotlight.  Well according to People Magazine, there relationship has finally run its course and was mainly due to “too much time apart” as a source close to the couple reported.  People Magazine reports, “they never get to see each other, ever,” the source says. “It’s been a long time coming. They still love each other and are part of their lives, but Reggie spends six months out of the year in New Orleans, so it’s tough.” 

I don’t too much care about celebrity’s personal lives but since everyone else is reporting it, I figure we should too lol.  They did make a nice couple though.  Maybe they’ll find there way back to one another…
