Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt Prepare For Funeral

January 30th, 2007 // 4 Comments

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have begun preparations for Angelina’s mother, Marcheline Bertrand, who passed away this past Saturday. The Sun UK reports that the couple had to abruptly leave New Orleans when Jolie received the news that her mother had taken a turn for the worse.

The Hollywood actress was spotted talking anxiously on her mobile phone at an arts centre in New Orleans on Friday, according to the British paper. She and boyfriend Brad immediately flew to LA. They arrived at around 4pm on Saturday and were at actress Marcheline’s bedside until she died around 7.54pm.

Angelina and her mother were extremely close as she has been estranged from her father Jon Voight for years. A source said: “Angie was dreading this moment. She felt she had already lost her father – and now her mom too.”

    Please take down the photos. Doesn’t the family deserve to mourn in private? We’ve no business butting into their lives right now, and posting the pics just makes the Paps feel entitled to continue butting in.

    You pay very dearly for being in the public eye. You are richly rewarded financially and given a lot of influence, but in the end you have sold your privacy.

    I’m with Meg. I’ve lost both my parents, and it’s a wrenching time. There should be a line between celeb stuff and human stuff. My heart goes out to Angelina.

    Of course no one wants to be the center of attention and have their pictures posted after such a tragedy, but its not as if THESE ACTORS didn’t know what they were getting themselves into when they began ACTING. It was their CHOICE and they are dealing with the consequences that they have always been AWARE of but choosing to remove their pictures will only make the people who VIEW them feel better, and not make Angelina and Brad feel better or effect then ANYWAY, so stop being a SELFISH FAN and SUCK IT UP.
