Simon Monjack continues to deny rumors that drugs or an eating disorder were to blame for the death of wife Brittany Murphy.
Monjack appeared on the Today show Thursday morning, along with Murphy's mother, Sharon Murphy, answering hard questions from host Matt Lauer about rumors of Murphy's drug use and anorexia.
"Let's set the record straight once and for all – Brittany was not taking any medication for her mood, for anorexia," Monjack said. "It's utterly ridiculous that these rumors have perpetuated."
As previously reported by PEOPLE, Monjack, who says he suffers from a heart condition and seizures, claimed most of the prescription drugs found in the couple's home are his. He told Lauer his late wife used Vicoprofin and Sarafem during her menstrual cycle.
When Lauer brought up the possibility of an eating disorder, Monjack replied, "Absolutely not. You just need to go to her favorite restaurant, Chateau Marmont, and speak to any waiter, who would tell you that she would happily order four plates of food and eat them all."
Cocaine QuestionLauer also pressed about rumors of Murphy's cocaine use over the years. A "physical impossibility," Monjack said, because of a heart condition Murphy suffered called mitral valve prolapse.
Monjack also had some harsh words for Hollywood. He said the rescinded offer for Murphy to play the role of Gloria in Happy Feet 2, which occurred a week prior to her death and followed her loss of another job, broke her heart.
"They have blood on their hands, and I hope they wash them with very hot water because of the way they treated Brittany Murphy while she was alive," Monjack said, admitting he recently received a press release confirming that Murphy was not fired but that it was a mutual decision.
