Angelina Jolie's mother, Marcheline Bertrand, recently passed away from cancer, but according to Star mag, she had a dying wish for her only daughter (do I smell a Disney movie?): to marry partner Brad Pitt, father to Shiloh Nouvel and adopted dad to Maddox and Zahara. Uh, remember when she wore that vial of Billy Bob Thornton's blood around her neck? What makes Star think she's normal and would succumb to good ole' Midwestern Brad's pleas for marriage, or her dying mother's for god's sake. You can't tame a wild woman who likes to write with and wear blood; though you may erase her tattoos, you'll never erase her craziness. From Star, via Celebitchy:

Star can reveal exclusively that before succumbing to her illness, Marcheline, who was 56, shared tender last moments with each of them. “Marcheline was heavily medicated, but she was conscious for a lot of the time,” says the source. “Marcheline asked Brad to take care of Angelina and the kids [their adopted children Maddox, 5, and Zahara, 2, and their biological daughter Shiloh, 8 months],” says the source. And she made a similar, equally impassioned plea to her headstrong daughter.

“She spent the most time with Angelina — she told Angelina that her dying wish was for her to marry Brad,” says the source. “Even during her darkest days over the past months, Marcheline [had urged] Angelina to marry him. Marcheline adored Brad and believed he was an angel sent into their lives to take care of Angie.” So now, adds the source, despite Angelina publicly vowing in the past that she and Brad would not marry, “there is no way Angelina’s going to let her mom down.”

I think what's important to note is that "Marcheline was heavily medicated" thus conjuring these images of Brad as an "angel sent into their lives to take care of Angie." Sounds more like medication-induced hallucinations than an impassioned dying wish. And who could the source be that was there at her final moments? Did her hospice nurse sell out?
