Jolie's Mum Is Fighting Cancer Battle
ANGELINA JOLIE is hiding a painful secret - her mother MARCHELINE BERTRAND is battling cancer.
The actress' French mum has been quietly battling the disease for three years, according to US tabloid National Enquirer, but things took a turn for the worse late last year (05) and Bertrand had to be hospitalised.
A source close to the TOMB RAIDER star tells the publication that Jolie jetted in to be by her mother's bedside after she checked into a Los Angeles hospital.
The 55-year-old former actress, who was married to Jolie's estranged father JON VOIGHT in the 1970s, reportedly had to undergo surgery.
The source says, "Marcheline isn't just Angelina's mother - she's her best friend too."
