It's being reported that the charity that Simon Monjack set up for his wife, The Brittany Murphy Foundation, is a scam. Monjack has begun refunding donations made following revelations that he did not register the foundation as a charity with the California Secretary of State's office and the IRS. Monjack published the following on the foundations site:
"We began the Brittany Murphy Foundation to honor Brittany's wishes and to give her family, friends, and fans a way of keeping her legacy alive. In an effort to get the foundation off the ground quickly, we established it as a private foundation with plans to apply for nonprofit status down the road. However, after some thought, we have decided instead to wait until we have our nonprofit status approved before proceeding to ensure that we can truly honor Brittany's charitable desires. Any donations made up until this point will be returned until we have all our paperwork solidified. We would like to thank the thousands of people who have reached out with kind words of love and support; you have made the hardest journey a little bit easier."
