Angelina Jolie's Health Crisis
Humanitarian queen Angelina Jolie is allegedly suffering from extreme health problems and Brad Pitt’s not the only one who’s concerned! Friends are worried that Ange is pushing herself too far and that her refusal to take a break from her humanitarian missions could be bringing an underlying illness to the surface.
In September, Ange was in the Middle East to support Syrian refugees in Jordan and visit government officials in Lebanon, Turkey and Iraq, and the usually composed actress was so affected by the emotional stories she heard that she found herself in tears. But along with the important causes, it sounds like Ange should also be concerned about her health. The dedicated actress allegedly told pals she suffered “severe headaches, dehydration and light-headedness” and had “no energy or appetite”, but this didn’t stop her continuing her work.
A source told an American tabloid, “[Ange has] shrivelled to 95 pounds, recently suffered a terrifying collapse and is displaying classic symptoms of the mostly incurable liver disease [hepatitis C]. Friends fear the frail beauty may require a life-saving liver transplant!” A medical expert told the tabloid, “What Angelina experienced can be symptoms of hepatitis” – a potentially deadly virus. The friend hinted that she may have got it in the Nineties, adding, “Pals are frightened she picked up the killer virus with reckless behaviour during her wild young days.”
Even if she’s suffering from something less severe, Ange’s health problems are allegedly having an impact on her family and her upcoming marriage plans. “[Her] devastating health crisis has put her under such tremendous stress, it’s ruining her life. Long-time partner Brad Pitt is desperate to keep her healthy, but Angie’s well-being is always hanging over their heads,” the source continued. Although we really appreciate her work, it’s OK to help yourself sometimes too, Ange!
