My Ex Is Dead, Now Pay Up, Suckers!

In a case of extremely bad (or at least distasteful) timing, the ex-wife of recently deceased Christian Brando is suing Christian's lawyers, alleging they hosed her out of money.

In a suit filed yesterday in L.A. County Superior Court, Deborah Brando says she discovered in December 2007 that executors of the Marlon Brando Living Trust had altered it by forging Marlon's signature and that they intentionally tried to deceive her and screwed her out of property.

Deborah Brando is suing for fraud and deceit, conspiracy and professional negligence. She's asking for an unspecified amount.

Lawyers for the will's executors couldn't be immediately reached for comment.
