was so shocked by tabloid reports about her new husband's shady past she hired a security team to check him out. The actress stunned Hollywood when she secretly wed producer Simon Monjack
last month and she has spent the past few weeks defending the Brit amid reports he's a conman who owes hundreds of thousands of dollars and faces deportation.
However Murphy insists she has no problem standing by her man, because she's confident the reports of his past shady dealings are all "preposterous lies." The Little Black Book
star tells In Touch Weekly
magazine, "Everything was just so fabricated and hurtful."
Despite reports Monjack rushed to wed the actress to avoid deportation after outstaying his work visa, Murphy states her new husband has lived in the U.S. for 15 years and that their families have known each other for years.
She claims the reports were fabricated by a "crazy ex-assistant" or a "crazy former girlfriend." She adds, "We're trying to figure it out."
