Brittany Murphy's father is very mad about Lifetime's 'The Brittany Murphy Story'
Even before the announcement of Lifetime's movie -- which was produced independently and purchased by the network -- Bertolotti has been tweeting about the possibility of his daughter being murdered by her mother, his ex-wife, and constantly retweets fans who offer condolences.
Since the movie announcement, however, he constantly retweets messages from fans and articles discussing how bad the movie looks, and in particular ones targeting "Last Man Standing" actress Amanda Fuller, who plays his daughter in the movie.
"Lifetime's casting was atrocious. Amanda Fuller, the girl playing Brittany, looks absolutely nothing like her," he tells Examiner.com. "Everyone looks ridiculous in their bad wigs and the dialogue is nauseating. To suggest that I was never in Brittany's life since the age of 2 is absolutely despicable. I was always a part of Brittany's life and supported both her and her mother."
However, Fuller says in an interview with TheTVPage.com that she'd blocked Bertolotti after his abusive tweets. "When it comes to the dad, as far as I know -- which is based off of extensive research--he wasn't really a part of her life at all," she says. "He was in jail when she was young and then she tried to have a relationship with him to no avail."
She continues, "It wasn't until she died that he became so vocal in caring so much about his daughter. I think that is kind of sick and I don't really respect that. I know that a lot of her abandonment issues came from the relationship with her dad and that is probably why she sought love in places that she wasn't going to get it. He can say what he wants."
