Simon Monjack died from a broken heartIn a shocking turn of events this week, Simon Monjack, who was Brittany Murphy's widower, was found dead at 39 in his Hollywood Hills home just five months after his movie star wife passed away. According to his spokesman, Monjack was due for a heart bypass, but he kept putting it off to focus on a September gala for the Brittany Murphy Foundation, which helps inner-city children discover the arts.

"Simon needed a [heart] bypass. I was told he needed a bypass, and I said to him, 'Simon, you have so much going on, let's keep you healthy.' I said, 'You want to be healthy. Don't you?' He said yes, but he said, 'The bypass can wait,'" his rep, Roger Neal, told PEOPLE.
