He said on Monday that, “My world was destroyed yesterday.”
Monjack also revealed life had been normal for the pair until she was found collapsed in the shower surrounded by her own vomit, although Brittany had been suffering from a sore throat recently.
Recalling how her lifeless body was discovered, he explained to Access Hollywood: “Her mother, Sharon, went into the bathroom because she had been in there a long time. Her mom screamed for me and I ran. Then I called 911.
“She had laryngitis. She had been tired at the end of the year. She had made a couple of movies.”
Monjack has also denied rumours Brittany had been mixing with “controlling” people.
He explained: “I don’t know why anyone would think that. She found love. We found love. Brittany didn’t get to where Brittany was with anyone controlling her — Brittany was Brittany.”
