Actress Brittany Murphy has married screenwriter Simon Monjack in a private ceremony in Los Angeles several weeks ago. This is the first marriage for both.
"It was officiated by a rabbi, and they were surrounded by their families," her publicist told The Showbuzz Tuesday.
Word of the marriage got out after the couple was spotted flashing their wedding rings during a Playboy party at the Kentucky Derby last Saturday.
A source told Us Weekly magazine that Murphy and Monjack were "drinking Crown Royal and didn't want photographers to take pictures of their rings because they were making a formal announcement Monday."
In August, 2006 Murphy broke off her almost two-year engagement to Joe Macaluso. She was previously engaged to her manager, Jeff Kwatinetz.
