Brad Pitt hasn't visited grandma who lives in 'substandard' nursing home for four years

Brad Pitt hasn't visited grandma who lives in 'substandard' nursing home for four years
Brad and Ange: too busy for nan?
Brad Pitt is obviously very busy admiring wife, Angelina Jolie's, right leg.

The actor's great-aunt, Mary Ann, claims Betty Russell hasn't seen her famous grandson in over four years, and dreams of the day when he'll next visit.

"Betty misses him. He doesn't write, he doesn't seem to stay in contact with her," she revealed, adding: "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… but not anymore."

While Brad and Ange live what we assume must be a pretty cushy family life with their six kids, Betty is apparently stuck in "substandard" care, surrounded by pictures of the couple.

The nursing home where she lives – Rose Manor in Shawnee, Oklahoma – received just one out of five stars in a state inspection, according to The Sun.

Mary Ann told the paper that while Betty is coping – by playing bingo and going out to get her hair done – she hopes Brad will make an effort for his grandma's impending 90th birthday.

Brad has previously claimed he found his Christian upbringing in Shawnee "stifling", saying "I've got my issues with it."
