Christian Brando Has Died At 49

Christian Brando Has Died

Christian Brando, the eldest son of the late legendary actor Marlon Brando, died this morning at 1:47 a.m. at Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center in Los Angeles, Calif. On Monday, Christian's attorney Benjamin Brin announced that the actor was hospitalized with pneumonia. "The prognosis is for a complete recovery," Brin said, "He's going to be OK." Christian was 49 years old.

Christian Brando was born May 11, 1958 as the result of an affair between his father and actress Anna Kashfi. Christian pled guilty to manslaughter in 1990 for killing his sister's boyfriend Dag Drollet.

in 2001, actor Robert Blake claimed that Christian was involved in the murder of his wife Bonnie Lee Bakley. Bonnie had been dating Robert Blake and Christian when she became pregnant and initially claimed Christian to be the father until a DNA test later proved the father to be Robert. Robert was charged with her murder and acquitted, then was later found liable in a civil case.

Christian dabbled in acting, and had small roles in Yentl and I Love You, Alice B. Toklas! but never acheived the level of fame as his Academy Award winning actor father.
RIP

And no RIP from me - that bio makes him sound like kind of a douchebag.

Yes, the death of a human being is, indeed, something to joke about.

Yeah, allegedly.

Too bad this wasn't included in the bio the OP posted:

In December 2005, Deborah Brando launched a suit in Los Angeles County Superior Court seeking financial damages for multiple counts of violence and threats of violence and murder against her and her 13-year-old daughter. Deborah Brando claimed that Christian Brando repeatedly forced her into sex by threatening to smother her with a pillow or to cut her daughter "into a million pieces.". The former couple reached a settlement in February, 2007.


Nice guy.

I agree. See my Darwin 2008 post.

Forgiveness is for Jesus. Humor is for Humans. But I'm sure JC gets a little humor out of this planet from time to time. Oh hell, yes.

Robert Blake accused Christian of murdering their ex, and in court Christian took the 5th on the stand - which is peculiar.
