Everyone has a past, but Angelina Jolie, according to a “family friend” of the Hollywood A-Lister, had demons and dark secrets she’d likely want to keep under wraps.
According to RadarOnline, the woman, speaking out for the first time on record, is Cis Rundle, Angelina’s former caregiver when she was just a little girl. It’s unknown why the woman is coming out now, and if she is still on cordial terms with Jolie.
The woman’s claims about Angelina Jolie read like a suspense novel with a plot that’s layered with twists at every turn. But in the general scheme of things, it’s difficult to believe anyone other than big screen directors can make these riveting tales up.
Rundle says she first came into Angelina’s life in the ’70s when the beloved actress was just 3 years old. Marcheline Bertrand, Jolie’s mother, enlisted her to help care for her daughter. One of the woman’s fondest memories of Angelina was the excitement on the child’s face when she dipped her own fingers in wax.
Beyond that priceless moment, most of Angelina’s world went dark and spiraled out of control.
“She just liked that little bit of pain. She liked that edge. She was a wild child. I knew she was always going to be a force to be reckoned with.”
Rundle recalls how as the years went by and Angelina Jolie became a grown woman, she’d hear about her bizarre behavior. Here, she’s talking about other dark moments in Jolie’s life when she experimented with illicit drugs and was free-spirited with her sex life. And even with allegations of her addiction to cocaine and heroin made public, the caregiver says there were more coarse moments over the years.
“I carried her into the hospital. She was in that anorexic stage…it was one of her stages. She didn’t stay, it got worked out. But Marcheline got scared that she wasn’t eating.”
Apparently, during her time at Beverly Hills High School, Jolie was bullied about her lips (imagine that?), was an outcast, and her peers ridiculed her all the time. Look at her now, right?
“She didn’t really like Beverly Hills High School… They used to call her ‘Ubangi Lips.’ They made fun of her because of her lips and the girls were mean to her. She has these broad shoulders and long legs, she moved like a gazelle.”
And just when matters couldn’t possible get any worse, Jolie faced accusations of incest, stemming from a 2001 red carpet incident in which she and her brother, James Haven, kissed on the lips during the Academy Awards. Rundle said the taboo topic ignited a backlash, but she says the public got it all wrong; it wasn’t what it seemed. Nonetheless, Jolie had to endure the pain of the label for a time.
“The day she kissed Jamie at the Oscars, it was the first day Marcheline was treated for cancer. They left the hospital together and got ready together.
“Nobody in the world knew that they spent the day in the hospital. It was like, ‘Look where we’re at now.’ But the world saw something incestual. It was meant to be ‘Here we are.’ They only ever had each other. They had a very tight relationship with each other and their mother.”
Rundle says she spent eight years of her life with the famous but controversial family, and she loves them “unconditionally.” She continues to gush over Angelina, who finally married Brad Pitt in a secret ceremony last month.
At this time, Angelina Jolie has not come forward to confirm or deny the caregiver’s claims of demons and dark secrets, but given the details, it’s hard to believe the woman can still lay claim to being part of Angelina and Brad’s inner circle.
