Washington, May 19 : More than a year after her mother's death, Angelina Jolie has finally sold the California house Marcheline Bertrand called home.
Bertrand lost her battle with ovarian cancer January 2007 at the age of 56, and pals claimed that Jolie had since struggled to let go of the pad, which was full of memories.
A source told the National Enquirer that though the actress had been urged to sell the place, she had been unable to do so until now, reports Contactmusic quoted.
"They were incredibly close. Marcheline was an actress as well, and responsible for getting Angelina involved in film," the source said.
"She had been urged to sell the place by family and friends, but wanted to hold on to one of the last things she could touch or feel of her mother's spirit.
"Finally, after more than a year, she tearfully let it go," the source added.
Pregnant Jolie recently admitted that she and partner Brad Pitt would be welcoming twins into the family. However, she refused to reveal whether the babies would be boys or girls.
