    I thought I heard a week or so ago that he had been hospitalized with pneumonia. (Just read the article, and that's what he may have died from.)

    He was part of quite a dysfunctional family indeed.

    ETA: Why am I still thinking of him as a younger man? He's 49!!! Or was.

    Good--I hope he IS dead--He shot his sister's boyfriend right in head, killing him--and because he was Brando's son, he only got a ten year sentence

    I thought that he did it because the guy was beating up his sister on a regular basis, even when she was pregnant.

    Also, Bonnie Lee Bakley (the one that was murdered by Robert Blake, IMO) was hoping that her baby was Christian. I think that she even initially named the baby after him and changed it when DNA proved it was Blake's child.

    Article I read stated in 1990 Cheyenne claimed that Dag Drollet was abusing her, but that may not have been the case, she have been suffering mental illness. Christian shot Dag, was sentence to 10 years for manslaughter. Cheyenne was pregnant at the time of the shooting and gave birth to a son. 1995 Cheyenne was diagnosed with schizophrenia and shortly after hanged herself.

    Wikipedia is reporting he died of pneumonia on 26 Jan. What a sad life he, and a lot of his family, led.

    Marlon Brando was a stellar parent.

    Are there any more Brando offspring left living?

    I wonder why no legitimate news agencies have picked this up. Page six is a gossip column, they do not verify their stories. The latest anyone has on this story is his admittance into ICU for pneumonia. I will believe it when I see it printed somewhere a bit more reliable.

    Wow!!

    I'm with Chloekins, though...I wonder why Fox News or CNN isn't reporting this yet?

    They say it comes in threes. How freaky if the last 2 died from pneumonia.
