'My world was destroyed yesterday," Simon Monjack tells Access Hollywood of wife Brittany Murphy's Sunday death. Monjack told Access Hollywood that Sunday seemed like "a regular day." "[Her mother] went into the bathroom because she had been in there a long time," he recalled. "Her mom screamed for me and I ran. Then called 911." The writer denied his wife had bad influences in her life. "Brittany didn't get to where Brittany was with anyone controlling her ... Brittany was Brittany."

Monjack, who married Murphy in 2007, is taking comfort in a tweet by Murphy's old flame. "I loved what Ashton wrote on Twitter," he said. Kutcher, who worked with Murphy on Just Married, tweeted: '2day the world lost a little piece of sunshine. My deepest condolences go out 2 Brittany's family, her husband, & her amazing mother Sharon. see you on the other side kid." (More Ashton Kutcher stories.)
