The pair became close, and the source described Angie as 'eccentric and beautiful' with an interest in the 'dark side.'
The source claimed that the young Angie was a wild child, drinking alcohol, taking acid and smoking weed in her early teens.
But Angie was always generous, they said, frequently lending friends money and giving to the homeless.
They said: 'She was always a wonderful person and we had a wonderful friendship. People don't realize that she was always charitable, wild but charitable. I hadn't seen her one time for six months and she gave me money.
'As she was better funded than us, Angie would always be generous in sharing with me and other friends. She could not walk by a homeless person without offering food or money and remarking that homelessness is awful.
'That was when she was 14. It's not a surprise that she has become so important in giving a voice to refugees around the globe.'
The source added that Angie was a rebellious youngster who was 'anti-Beverly Hills.'
'We partied. We drank and smoked cigarettes and took acid,' they said. 'We roamed about wherever we could get on the bus.
'She tried to do the things that were wild, that were anti-Beverly Hills. We dressed in black and thought we were anarchists.
'We didn't want to drive fancy cars and we would stick up for people who were being bullied at school.'
In one letter she wrote that she had met 'Mr Perfect.' 'I met Mr Perfect. I don't know his name, he's a great kisser, I'll never see him again!' she wrote. 'When I get back we'll have another one of those nights'
