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.”
