BRITTANY Murphy’s mom Sharon was accused by the public for the death of her daughter.
After years of trying to defend her name, here’s everything you need to know about her…
Who is Brittany Murphy’s mom Sharon?
Sharon is well known as an American Internet personality and the mother of Brittany.
She hasn’t shared much information regarding her date of birth, but what we do know is she was born and raised in the United States.
Regarding her family, she is the daughter of Elizabeth Kochan, there is no other information about any other siblings or her father.
She was married to Angelo Bertolotti, but their marriage ended up having multiple misunderstandings and extramarital affairs. They got divorced in 1979.
Who was her husband Angelo?
Angelo was the father of Brittany and was heavily involved in organised crime and spent most of his life in and out of prison.
Brittany was just two years old when her parents split.
Angelo was suspicious of the death of his daughter, as he didnt believe it was by a “natural cause” and that there was “a murder situation here”.
He also claimed that the lab reports indicated that his daughter’s hair contained ten heavy metals administered by a third-party with ‘possible criminal intent.’
His claims only increased speculations surrounding her death, but none of it has been confirmed yet.
In January 2019, Angelo Bertolotti passed away after being on life support due to a “long health battle.”
What has Sharon said about Brittany’s death?
Sharon had been very public about the death of her daughter, especially as she became a possible suspect in the public’s eye.
She became furious with Angelo, as she believed he was trying to profit over his daughter’s death.
He would make public statements such as: “that my darling daughter was murdered”.
Yet, according to Sharon he was hardly around in the actress’s life.
Sharon continued to deny she had any involvement in the death of her daughters and eventually stopped answering questions and reports about it in 2012.
In a letter she wrote for The Hollywood Reporter: “I have no choice now but to come forward in the face of inexcusable efforts to smear my daughter’s memory by a man who may be her biological father but was never a real father to her in her lifetime,”
Sharon wrote. “Angelo Bertolotti has relocated to California in his old age to claim he is here for Brittany, as he never was in life. He has made outrageous statements over the past few years, culminating in this latest madness: that my darling daughter was murdered.”
She still continues to defend her innocence, and has since stated that she is satisfied with the investigation’s outcome.
“We will never know for sure,” she wrote. “However, we do know the Los Angeles County Coroner did extensive tests and found that she died of natural causes, and now she is a real living angel in heaven.”
