Is Brittany Murphy's Former Home Jinxed?

There seems to be a jinx on Brittany Murphy's Hollywood Hills, Calif., house where both she and her husband died only months apart. The 8,000-square-foot abode, which was willed to her mother, is scheduled for a January 31 foreclosure auction with a minimum bid amount of $4,035,666, reported the Real Estalker.

Whoever purchases the stigmatized property may also have to pay back taxes. Currently, Los Angeles County has the 1997 home assessed at about $3.93 million, with more than $50,000 in property taxes due, a clerk at the assessor's office told AOL Real Estate. The first installment of $27,775 that was due in December has not been paid, while installment two, in the amount of $25,250, is due mid-April.
