In Touch can exclusively reveal that Brad Pitt's mom, Jane Pitt, has purchased a Bible as a wedding gift to her son and future daughter-in-law, a contentious decision as Angelina has never declared a faith, and has even taught Buddhism to her son Maddox.
“It was a special wedding gift,” Kris Burnett, the salesperson who sold Jane the Bible, tells In Touch. “We prayed with Brad’s mom and sister over the Bible, asking the Lord to lead the way in Brad and Angelina’s life.”
The Bible, purchased at Mardel Christian & Education, cost about $130 and had the name "Angelina" embossed on the cover.
And according to therapist Dr. Paul Hokemeyer (who does not treat the couple), Jane’s Bible gift sends a strong message. “The purpose of a gift is to honor the recipient, not to push an agenda,” he tells In Touch. “By giving Angelina a Bible, Jane is invalidating Angelina through passive-aggressive behavior. It’s subtle, destructive and will corrode Jane’s relationship with her future daughter-in-law.”
