Christian Brando Dies

chrisbrando.jpgChristian Brando, eldest son of the late Marlon Brando, died today from pneumonia at Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center in Los Angeles. He was only 49 years old. He entered the hospital on January 11th.

As you may remember, Christian served five years in prison for the manslaughter killing of his sister Cheyenne’s boyfriend in 1990. Brando said it was an accident. He and Dag Drollet – his sister’s boyfriend – were struggling during an argument wherein Brando accused Drollet of beating Cheyenne, who was pregnant.

In 2005, Brando was charged with two counts of spousal abuse, to which he pled guilty. Part of his three year probation included drug and alcohol rehabilitation, as well as entering a spouse abuse prevention program.

Rumor surrounded Brando during the Robert Blake murder trial. It was theorized that Brando was the killer of Bonnie Lee Bakley, with whom he was once involved.

Brando has definitely led a checkered life. He died unmarried and without any children. Thank goodness for small favors.
