We're sad to report that Christian Brando, son of Marlon Brando, died early this morning. He was 49.

Brando passed away at 1:47 a.m. at the Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center in Los Angeles. He had been admitted to the hospital's intensive care unit on January 11 for pneumonia.

"This is a sad and difficult time for the family," said David Seeley, a lawyer for Marlon Brando's estate.

Christian Brando, the 49-year-old son of actor Marlon Brando, is in poor health at Hollywood Presbyterian hospital.

Sources told TMZ that Brando was admitted on January 11 and remains in ICU. We're unsure about the exact nature of his illness right now.

Brando was convicted of voluntary manslaughter in the 1990 death of his half-sister's boyfriend, Dag Drollet. He was released from prison in 1996.

In 2005, Christian Brando pled guilty to abusing his then-wife, Deborah Presley.
