Brittany Murphy's mother and husband have said they are convinced the actress died of natural causes, not drugs or an eating disorder.
Sharon Murphy and Simon Monjack said the actress did not use illegal drugs or alcohol and that they were awaiting a coroner's report that would end speculation that prescription medicine caused her death in December.
Simon said some of the medication found in the couple's Hollywood Hills home belonged to him.
He said the 32-year-old actress had a common heart valve problem, but doctors had expected her to "live a long and healthy life".
The pair are planning a public memorial service for the Clueless star in late February.
