Scott Eastwood makes emotional call to late girlfriend’s dad

LOS ANGELES, Aug 27:  Actor Scott Eastwood, who recently opened up about the tragic death of one of his first loves, Jewel Brangman, has finally got in touch with the girl’s father.
Jewel, 26, died two years ago in a fatal car accident in Los Angeles. She was driving in Los Angeles in a hired 2001 Honda Civic after a shoot when she was involved in the crash.
The faulty airbag over-inflated and shot a piece of metal into her neck causing brain injuries which subsequently killed her.
Her father, Alexander Brangman, filed a lawsuit for wrongful death against the makers.
Scott, 30, the son of actor-director Clint Eastwood, mustered up courage and called Jewel’s father, who opened up about their emotional exchange, reported People magazine.
Alexander admitted that he was “disappointed” in Scott for not making contact earlier, despite the fact that he and Jewel had split 6 months prior.
“I was disappointed he didn’t come to her celebration of life. Many people were actually disappointed. Many of her friends flew across the country to pay their respects and condolences. There wasn’t even a flower sent,” he said.
Despite this, he acknowledged that Scott was extremely apologetic about his silence when he eventually got in touch.
“I was angry – but everybody grieves differently. You know, he’s a kid, too. I didn’t know what his grieving process is – I’d like to get to know more of what he went through. Because that’s a difficult thing,” Alexander said. (PTI)
