Lost Her Father In 2019
22 January 2019 was a sad day for Pia as Angelo Joseph “AJ” Bertolotti, her father, passed away in Los Angeles, California, at the age of 92. He died with her by his side to the tune of Frank Sinatra playing in his ears.
Britanny’s old man was a Second World War combat veteran and received a burial with military honors. His memorial took place in Riverside National Cemetery in Riverside, California. Pia also started a GoFundMe to pay for the funeral.
Angelo’s death came nine years after his daughter’s death. His baby girl, whom he had with Sharon Murphy, died on December 20, 2009. Brittany’s death was said to be caused as a result of anemia, pneumonia, and multiple drug intoxication, according to the Los Angeles Coroner’s Office.
However, Angelo filed a lawsuit against the office, disputing the coroner’s ruling and seeking further toxicology testing. The lawsuit didn’t go anywhere.
Pia’s Biological Aunt Claimed Her As Her Daughter
Pia was born on October 5, 1980, to father Angelo and his partner at that time. Not many know this, but she was actually raised by her biological aunt, Jackie Duval. Apparently, Jackie claimed Pia as her “daughter” back in 1993 and took care of her.
Alongside many, Pia is thankful for her guardian. On Mother’s Day 2020, she thanked her aunt for everything she had done for her and taught her throughout the years.
While there is not much about Pia’s biological mother, she revealed in March 2017 that her mom had a 70% blockage in her carotid artery.
Pia Bertolotti Still Misses Her Late Sibling Brittany
Murphy and Pia didn’t grow up together as the late actress lived with her mother and the younger sister with her father. They didn’t contact each other for six years during their childhood. However, they would reconcile when Murphy was 19 and Pia was 16.
The younger sister was left devastated after her death. That was in part due to the short amount of time they got to spend together. Pia mentioned in a heartfelt post that she absolutely regretted not getting into singing earlier because she would have loved to share the experience with her late sister.
Following her demise, Pia also noted that Brittany was “afraid of death” and had anxiety attacks since a young age. She discredited the notion that her older sibling had died due to abused medications or had an eating disorder. The mother of four recounted instances from their time together and said,
She had a fear of having heart issues when she was younger. We talked about it. It was a general fear of death. She was super careful about how she took care of herself.
All in all, she denied her sister taking drugs.
Alongside The Late Brittany, Pia Bertolotti Has Two Brothers
Well, Brittany was not the only sibling that Pia had. In fact, the two sisters also had two big brothers: Jeff and Tony Bertolotti.
Once, Jeff posted Brittany’s cover of Somebody to Love for the Happy Feet movie back in 2012 with the following caption:
The Bertolotti woman are very beautiful as I said…
Alongside, Tony also held his sisters in high regard. But, he believed that Brittany was murdered. He elaborated that she couldn’t have died of those causes since she was home with her husband and mother, and the hospital was just 4 miles away.
Tony was baffled that nobody even thought of taking her to the clinic. The fact that Sharon, Brittany’s mother, never picked up the phone from other family members also bolstered his theory. He assumed that there was a coup behind this, and only Sharon, along with Brittany’s agents, knew.
