In a new unauthorized biography of Angelina Jolie author Andrew Morton alleges that she had a sexual encounter with her mother Marcheline Bertrand’s live-in boyfriend, according to The Daily Telegraph.
A source tells Now magazine, “Marcheline had a live-in boyfriend whom she was very much in love with, but Ange slept with him when she was 16 and barely out of school.” Angelina’s reps have not responded to the allegations.
The magazine goes on to say that the mother and daughter had a difficult time repairing their relationship after the admission and that Angelina also had a falling out with her brother, James Haven, over the incident. Her brother has since forgiven her so much that he made out with her at the 2000 Oscars.
Marcheline Bertrand died of cancer in 2007 and Angelina Jolie was devastated by her passing. Jolie often praises her mother and cites her as her main inspiration for choosing acting as a career as well as the motivation behind her involvement with so many charitable projects. Here is a tearful Angelina talking about her mother during a press conference promoting Jolie’s 2008 Oscar-nominated movie Changeling:
