Simon Monjack’s death just got a little more mysterious.
It turns out Brittany Murphy’s husband, who was found dead on May 24 just five months after his wife, had two children from previous relationships.
The 39-year-old’s secret brood was discovered after Monjack’s family went through his computer.
Monjack’s mother, brother and therapist took the screenwriter’s laptop after staying with Murphy’s mom at his house last week.
They found emails from two women asking Monjack for child support.
According to website TMZ.com, the screenwriter had a daughter by one woman and a son by another.
Murphy reportedly filed a theft report with police after discovering her son-in-law’s property had gone AWOL.
Meanwhile, Monjack’s family has passed the computer on to investigators, who are now reviewing its contents.
Monjack was found dead in the same Los Angeles home where his wife, actress Brittany Murphy, had died. He appeared to have passed away from a heart attack after delaying surgery to repair a heart condition.
Coroner’s officials won’t be releasing Monjack’s official cause of death for weeks pending toxicology reports.
Murphy died on December 20 at the age of 32 from pneumonia complicated by iron deficiency, anemia and drug intoxication.
Upon his wishes, Monjack was laid to rest next to his wife at the Forest Lawn Memorial Park in the Hollywood Hills.
