New York — Before succumbing to her illness, Angelina Jolie’s mother Marcheline Bertrand requested her to marry boyfriend Brad Pitt. Bertrand, 56, reportedly adored Pitt.
Jolie was by her mother’s side at Los Angeles’ Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre Jan 27 when the former actress faced the final hours of her seven-year battle with ovarian cancer. Pitt and Jolie’s brother, actor James Haven, were also there.
“Bertrand was heavily medicated but she was conscious for a lot of time. She asked Pitt to take care of Angelina and the kids (their adopted children Maddox, 5, Zahara, 2, and biological daughter Shiloh, 8 months). And she made a similar plea to her headstrong daughter,” reports hollywood.tv.
“She spent the most time with Jolie and her dying wish was for her to marry Pitt. Even during her darkest days over the past months, Bertrand had urged Jolie to marry him. Bertrand adored Pitt and believed he was an angel sent into their lives to take care of her daughter,” the portal added.
It seems that despite her publicly vowing that she and Pitt would not marry, the actress may walk down the altar to fulfil her mother’s last wish.
