Christian Brando in ICU

1/18/2008 2:45 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Christian BrandoTMZ has learned that Christian Brando, the 49-year-old son of actor Marlon, is in bad shape at Hollywood Presbyterian hospital.

Sources tell TMZ that Brando was admitted on Jan. 11 and remains in ICU. The exact nature of his illness is unknown.

Brando was convicted of voluntary manslaughter in the 1990 death of his half-sister's boyfriend, Dag Drollet. Christian got out of prison in 1996.

In 2005, Christian pled guilty to abusing his then-wife. Deborah Presley (who claims she's Elvis' illegitimate daughter).

#23, Bob: Are you saying that Cheyenne committed the murder? How is it that we never read about it in this country? Could you elaborate?

Yes, but it is scary to put it out there. Job security in jeopardy! I can cryptically say that things are shutting down, so to speak. Comatose.

Cheyenne Brando did committ suicide. She hung herself after admitting that she lied about Dag Droulet abusing her. But the point is, christian Brando committed murder...there was no struggle over the gun. Marlon Brando's money and high priced lawyers saved Christian's butt. And as far as Marlon Brando, he was an over-rated ham. He had about as much talent as James Both of them hams. Christian got off easy....why feel sorry for him? And even if Droulet had abused Cheyenne, you don't take the law into your own hands. The whole Brando family is a mess.

Christian is a good man who has gone through a lot in life. He has a good heart and I pray that his recovery is full and speedy. I find it very depressing that people who don't know anything have the most to say. Get well soon brother.

Wasn't he also mixed up with Robert Blake's murdered wife??? I think she was blackmailing him too before she was murdered!

Regardless of whether Christian Brando did the Dag murder and regardless of whether he was involved in the murder of Robert Blake's wife, he is a human being and deserves some compassion right now. My prayers are with Christian Brando and his family.

I'm really sad for him and for his family.
Maybe he'd done some horible things in the past but it doesn't mean that he's a bad man he's a humain like everyone so stop sayin' cruel things on him imagine he's your brother !!!!
Kiss to his family
