Screen icon Marlon Brando has settled two lawsuits with former girlfriend MARIA CHRISTINA RUIZ over child support issues.

The ON THE WATERFRONT star had been hit with a suit for $100 million (GBP66 million) in damages plus monthly financial support for fathering three children in a 14-year relationship.

Ruiz's attorney, DONALD WOLDMAN says, "We've reached an overall, amicable settlement of all issues between the parties."

In her court petition, Ruiz had stated that she, "devoted all aspects of her life to...Brando's needs, the interests of their children, his personal interests and well being, to the exclusion of her own."
