Brittany Murphy has hit back at rumors she was fired from her new movie, currently filming in Puerto Rico, and replaced by Twilight‘s Rachel Lefevre.
Reports out of Puerto Rico suggested that Clueless star Brittany, 32, was thrown off the film set for being difficult, while there was talk that her British husband, Simon Monjack — who was reportedly hospitalized on Saturday — fought with locals.
However, her rep says these stories are not true.
“The allegations currently circulating on the internet about Brittany Murphy and her husband Simon Monjack read like a fictional plot from one of the 50 plus movies Ms. Murphy has successfully completed without incident,” says the rep.
“She was not nor has she ever been fired from any job big or small. Mr. Monjack did not engage in any alleged scuffles. Though do to creative differences Ms. Murphy and the production mutually parted ways.
“As far as wanting to allegedly “sabotage this project”, to the contrary Ms. Murphy wished this production nothing but the best. Puerto Rico gave Ms. Murphy a brief insight into its wonderful culture and warm people. Ms. Murphy would like to take this opportunity to thank the public for their continued support.”
