Brad Pitt`s grandmother is desperate for him to get in touch
The `Moneyball` actor - who raises six children with his partner Angelina Jolie - hasn`t seen or corresponded with 89-year-old Betty Russell for some time, and his family are unsure why he has stopped contacting everyone outside of his immediate family.
In an interview with The Sun newspaper, Brad`s great-aunt Mary Ann Lenier said: "Betty misses him. He doesn`t write, he doesn`t seem to stay in contact with her.
"I`m sure he`s busy but I don`t know why he doesn`t stay in contact with his grandmother. He used to send her flowers every month and call her once in a while.
"She used to hear from him a lot but not any more. I know he stays in contact with his mother and father. They even go and visit him and Angelina when they`re on film sets in different places.
"Betty`s daughter Betty visits her every day and brings her magazine articles about Brad. I`m sure she misses him."
Betty turns 90 this year and Mary Ann would love it if Brad - who last returned to his hometown of Springfield, Missouri, when Angelina was pregnant with their twins Knox and Vivienne, now three - made a special visit to see her.
She added she said: "She`ll be 90 on April 25. Her daughter might give her a party."
