LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Amid all the rumors of trouble in paradise for Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, Angelina’s father, Jon Voight, has now spoken exclusively to Access Hollywood in defense of the couple.
Voight – who has had a rocky relationship with his daughter over the years – spoke to Access on Tuesday about the recent reports suggesting the end of Brangelina.
“Nonsense,” Voight told Access. “It’s all made up stuff.”
However, the actor wouldn’t say when he last spoke with Angelina.
Also on Tuesday, a video clip was posted to YouTube titled “TO MOM WITH LOVE – James and Angelina,” which was a tribute to Angelina’s late mother, Marcheline Bertrand, who died on January 27, 2007.
“January 27, 2010 is the third Anniversary of Marcheline’s passing. To commemorate this day, we are celebrating our memories of her with this home video,” the text accompanying the video noted.
The home video was recorded during a trip to Hawaii in 1981, showing Marcheline with a young Angelina and brother James Haven.
The two-minute clip, set to a Hawaiian melody of “Somewhere Over The Rainbow,” ends with the words “We Miss You Mom, With Love, Angelina and James.”
TMZ confirmed Angelina and her brother were behind the posting.
