We're learning a little bit more today about Brittany Murphy's husband, Simon Monjack.

Just as Brittany Murphy had leapfrogged from a failed engagement to a quick marriage, Monjack was also on the rebound when he swapped vows with the 8 Mile star in 2007, having just emerged from a divorce.

Monjack and his former wife, Simone Roberta-Monjack, dissolved their marriage in 2006 and he was ordered to pay his ex $66,403 in a settlement.

The wannabe Hollywood player, who, as we reported, had money troubles before hooking up with Murphy, had only finished paying off his debt to his ex-missus this past March.

Murphy ended her engagement to production assistant Joe Macaluso in August 2006 and married Monjack in May 2007.
