BRITTANY Murphy's death has "destroyed" her husband.

BRITTANY Murphy's death has "destroyed" her husband.

The late Clueless actress' spouse, British screenwriter Simon Monjack, has spoken out about his beloved wife who died of a cardiac arrest at her Los Angeles home on Sunday and his devastation at her passing.

He said: "My world was destroyed yesterday."

Monjack also revealed life had been normal for the pair until she was found collapsed in the shower.

Recalling how her lifeless body was discovered, he said: "Her mother Sharon went into the bathroom because she had been in there for a long time. Her mom screamed for me and I ran. Then I called 911.

"She had laryngitis. She had been tired at the end of the year. She had made a couple of movies."

Simon has also denied rumours Brittany, pictured, had been mixing with "controlling" people.

" I don't know why anyone would think that. She found love. We found love. Brittany didn't get to where Brittany was with anyone controlling her. Brittany was Brittany, " he said .

Monjack also praised his wife's ex-boyfriend Ashton Kutcher's moving tribute to the actress.

"I loved what Ashton Kutcher wrote on twitter. It was comforting to me. I couldn't have said it better," he said.

Ashton had previously written: "2day the world lost a little piece of sunshine. My deepest condolences go out 2 Brittany'sfamily, her husband, and her amazing mother Sharon. see you on the other side kid."

After her death it was reported Monjack didn't want Brittany, 32, to have an autopsy - which was completed on Monday.

The Los Angeles County coroner's office is waiting for the results of toxicology tests before they release the autopsy report.

This week Los Angeles chief coroner Ed Winter, who investigated the death of pop star Michael Jackson, insisted the autopsy concluded her passing was not caused by drugs. The toxicology and neurological results are expected to take up to six weeks to come back.
