London: Shortly before her fatal collapse at home, Brittany Murphy told mum Sharon she was dying and asked her for a hug.
"That morning she woke up and couldn`t breathe,” a news daily quoted the late actress’ British husband Simon Monjack as telling a telly show.
"She went out to get some air. Sharon followed her out. She said, `Mom, I`m dying. I love you.` I believe she knew she was dying - this was about an hour... and then she ran to the bathroom," he added.
Sitting next to Simon, 40, Sharon added, "I just knew when she collapsed, I was with her in the bathroom. I was sitting across from her with her little puppy, Clara.
"And she said, `Mommy, please hug me.` And I went to get up and she just collapsed like right there. I started screaming for Simon. He did CPR from the minute she collapsed until the minute the paramedic walked into that room," she added.
