Brittany Murphy Passes; Tiger Sets Sail

• It's still unclear what caused Brittany Murphy's death in Los Angeles yesterday morning. While the coroner has indicated the 32-year-old actress appears to have died from "natural causes," it's been reported that lots of prescription drug bottles were uncovered by cops at the scene, and some friends say they'd grown increasingly concerned that she was abusing painkillers. An autopsy is planned for today or tomorrow, but an official cause of death may take a couple of weeks, pending the results of toxicology tests. [NYP, TMZ, People, Sun]

In related news, Tila announced over the weekend that she is pregnant and planning to be a surrogate mother for her brother's baby, which doesn't seem like such a hot idea, does it? [P6, Us]
