Marlon Brando Ex Sues for Wrongful Death

Marlon Brando's ex-wife is suing for what she calls the wrongful death of Christian Brando (right), the son she had with Marlon.

In a lawsuit filed today, Anna Kashfi claims that the doctor who treated Christian -- who died at 49 -- was reckless in providing medical care and monitoring Christian, which she claims led directly to his death.

Kashfi is also suing Teihotu Brando and Rebecca Brando, both children of Marlon's (but not hers), for interfering with her right to dispose of Christian's remains.

Christian died of pneumonia in 2008.

Kashfi is suing for unspecified damages.
