Hollywood legend Marlon Brando allegedly expressed concern about MICHAEL JACKSON's relationships with children visitors to his California home.

Jackson's cook STELLA LeMARQUE claims she overheard comments Brando - who died last July (04) - made during a trip to Jackson's Neverland Ranch in the early 1990s.

She claims he said, "What the hell is Michael doing with those kids?"

The troubled pop star is currently on trial in Santa Maria, California, accused of molesting a 13-year-old cancer sufferer.
