Jon Lovitz Once Blamed Andy Dick For Phil Hartman's Death
Share this @internewscast.com

At the time of their deaths, Phil Hartman and Brynn Omdahl had been married for more than a decade, with actor Steve Guttenberg telling CNN when news of the murder-suicide broke that, to all appearances, the Hartmans were “a very happy couple, and they always had the appearance of being well-balanced.” But according to Jon Lovitz, the horrifying incident was precipitated by a party at the Hartmans’ home, when Andy Dick, a guest at the party whose use of drugs is well-documented, reportedly gave Omdahl cocaine, per CBS News.

The presence of cocaine at a Hollywood party may not be a story in itself. But as reported by the same source, Omdahl had been in recovery from addiction for a decade by the time Dick provided her with the drug. It was Lovitz’s belief that Dick’s actions led Omdahl into a fresh period of addiction and mental instability directing resulting in the deaths of both her and Hartman.

Per the same source, Lovitz claimed that when he was hired to fill in for the deceased Hartman on the sitcom “Newsradio” –- which also starred Dick -– he told his costar: “I wouldn’t be here now if you hadn’t given Brynn that cocaine.”

If you or anyone you know is struggling with addiction issues, help is available. Visit the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration website or contact SAMHSA’s National Helpline at 1-800-662-HELP (4357).
