Brittany Murphy‘s estranged father died on Tuesday at the age of 92.
Murphy’s half-brother, Jeff, announced the passing of their father, Angelo Bertolotti, saying, “He passed with my beautiful sister Pia at his bedside, Frank Sinatra in his ears and a quiet calm on his face. RIP Pop’s, I’ll miss your crazy insane ass, forever.”
He added that Bertolotti had been on life support and said, “There was just no possible way, short of a miracle, that he was able to roll out of this extensive set of health problems. Anything short of letting him go would be cruel.”
Murphy and her father had been estranged when she passed away in 2009 at the age of 32.
Bertolotti filed a lawsuit against the Los Angeles Coroner’s office, disputing Murphy’s cause of death (it was ruled she died of anemia, pneumonia and multiple drug intoxication). The lawsuit was eventually dismissed.
