BRAD Pitt‘s mom secretly convinced Angelina Jolie to take the fateful test that led to her preventive double mastectomy.
Jane Pitt apparently urged the actress to see her doctor after Jolie had been shaken by yet another close relative’s cancer battle.
“Basically, Brad’s mom helped save Angie’s life,” a source said.
“When Angie told Jane that she was considering having genetic testing, Jane said to do whatever she thought was best for the children’s sake.
“That was all Angie had to hear. She made a decision right then and there to have it done!
“In discovering that she carries the faulty gene, Angie also learned she may have passed it along to her kids.
“She now has to decide when to tell Shiloh, Knox and Viv that they could carry this cancer gene as well.
“In Angie’s mind, it’s an even more painful decision than the one to have a double mastectomy.
“She’s trying to come to terms with it — and Brad is comforting her, saying, ‘We’ll tell Shiloh, Knox and Vivienne when they’re ready to know.’ But it’s hard for angie to face the prospect.”[imagebrowser id=1194]
