Marlon Brando's son CHRISTIAN is at the centre of a multi-million dollar lawsuit after allegedly physically and sexually abusing his ex-wife.

DEBORAH BRANDO claims her ex became violent towards her following his father's death last year (04).

Her lawyer Brian Oxman claims the new lawsuit includes details of Christian Brando holding a pillow over his client's face as he forced her to have sex with him.

Oxman, who is also Michael Jackson's family attorney, says, "He would yell, scream, threaten to kill numerous people, including her daughter.

Brando, who spent six years in prison for killing his sister's boyfriend, pleaded guilty to two counts of spousal abuse a year ago (JAN05).
