Why do you care Deborah Presley Brando? You sued Christian with the trumped up domestic abuse charges. You deliberately humiliated him to get money out of him/estate. Why don't you crawl back under the rock you came from.

If you are refering to me, my name is not Donna. Where has Donna made such comments about you?

You hurt and humiliated your ex-husband very much with the high publicity spousal abuse charges details after you divorced him. He'd already suffered enough with his name dragged through mud with that Bonnie Lee Bakley saga and the shooting of Dag Drollet. Then you went on TV planning his funeral, being so nice to him, part of his "family". You keep using the Brando name even though you divorced him. I think you are crazy.

Somebody needs to get to the bottom of that dodgy will. I'm surprised Christian didn't try and do something about it.

True. There does seem to be something fishy about it.

Christian and I were "doin something about it" when the domestic episode occured. He was out of his mind with grief and pain. I did not press any charges. The State of California did that. THe State also imposed a restraining order for three years, to "protect" me, because of his history. The probation and resraining order expired two days after Chrisitan died. We probably would have gone back to Kalama and stayed with JOAn. Donna was threatening him with more prison time andknew he was leaving. She, in my opinion did not get him the help he needed. She did not know his body, his history of lung problems. It is the saddest story. He lost his father. I will fight thes people in court until justice is served. I have lost everything and have nothing more to lose. Christian is not coming back. Someday, I will tell my story and set the record straight. So many people have a piece of the truth, but most of what I hear is not true. I was there.

You slept with him knowing he had a wife. You use my name. He gave it to me. He would have never have married you. You know that. My heart breaks for you. How sad he did not leave you anything.Yet, he assigned his rights to me. But the 360,000 dollars he spent with you should have been some consolation. use the name as long as you can. You have to loay your head down at night knowing in your heart, that the love of his life still lives on the other side of the hill. I am sure you were a good maid, and driver. You need better council. Do you have a liscences to be a "social worker" , and drug counciler? I did not think so. Summary Judgement. He loved his mother and made me promise to take care of her for him. He as too ashamed of you to let you close to those he loved most. I am his family. I will be sealed to him and remarried tohim in my Temple this summer for time and all eternity. Annulments are not recognized in Heavean. I feel so sorry for you. See you in court on his birthday. Poor thing. Prayers and Love,

You also neglect the fact that Christian brought all of the things that happened to him upon himself. You know he abused you. The difference betwen you and I , is that I don't tolerate it. He never had any intention of marrying you. He never intended to leave you one cent. You need to get a job. You are too pitiful to hate. you remind me of a sad stray puppy.

Deborah. Why did he divorce you? You keep saying he loved you, and you two were going back to Kalama, etc, etc. He had been forced into rehab and pay compensation because of those domestic abuse charges. It doesn't make sense what you are saying. I think he wanted to stay away from you.

From what I have read and have come to the conclusion is; the poor man was desparate for peace, stability, proper love and tranquility in his life. Maybe HE wanted to go and live in Kalama with JoAn, but not with you, or with Donna, or any of the vultures after a piece of Marlon's estate. He needed to get away from all that.

He had his reasons to divorce you and agree to the restraining order to keep away from you. He didn't want contact from you, or go back to you. He was forced into contact when you and your daughter filed the lawsuit against him in October 2005, suing him for domestic abuse and having to make a settlement of assigning his rights to you. You claim that you didn't press charges for the domestic issue, the State did it. What about the lawsuit suing him then? Are you blaming the State for that too? What were you hoping to get out of that lawsuit, other than dragging Christian down further? Did you receive any compensation or any of that $360,000?

It's true that Donna didn't give him the help he really needed sooner or he still would be alive. She wasn't good or helpful for him. Also I don't believe Christian intended to marry her. There are a few of us reading about Christian Brando who would have treated him much better than she did.

That interview with JoAn about her memories of Marlon and Christian is really sweet. I'm not surprised she feels lonely and misses them. Kalama seems like a really cool place to live. Christian should have been allowed to move back to Kalama sooner.

I thought you went to court and had the restraining order lifted a few weeks after it was enforced. I remember reading in either Globe or National Enquirer that you made an appeal through them to get in contact with Christian, who was missing, and had the restraining order lifted because you wanted to talk to him after he filed for a divorce in 2005. Now you say the restraining order expired two days after he died! What happened? Did you have the restraining order put on Christian again when you decided to bring the lawsuit against him.

I appreciate your concern. The truth will be revealed soon. Nice to know so many people care, even though they never knew any of us. Love, Deborah

Yes it would be nice for the truth to eventually come out, but I can't help thinking that your version of events would be stretching the truth.

Yes both these two need to leave him in peace. Even if there's something unusual about the will, it would be difficult to prove it was forged.
