Timothy’s father, Brando was known for his tumultuous personal life and his large number of partners and children. He was the father to at least 11 children, three of whom were adopted.

In his autobiography, Songs My Mother Taught Me Timothy Gahan Brando’s father wrote that he met Marilyn Monroe at a party where she played piano, unnoticed by anybody else there, that they had an affair and maintained an intermittent relationship for many years, and that he received a telephone call from her several days before she died. He also claimed numerous other romances, although he did not discuss his marriages, his wives, or his children in his autobiography.

On May 16, 1990, Timothy Gahan Brando’s step-brother Christian Brando fatally shot Dag Drollet, the boyfriend of his half-sister Cheyenne, at his father’s residence on Mulholland Drive in the Hollywood Hills. The family drama and trial were heavily publicized that year. He pleaded guilty to manslaughter and was sentenced to prison in 1991.

Timothy Gahan Brando’s brother was released in 1996. In 2004, the information introduced at the trial of Robert Blake for the 2001 murder of his wife, Bonnie Lee Bakley, exposed Christian’s relationship with Bakley and his possible involvement in her murder. In 2005, Christian pleaded no contest to spousal abuse of his then-wife Deborah and was given probation. He died of pneumonia on January 26, 2008, aged 49.

Timothy Gahan Brando’s father Marlon earned a reputation as a ‘bad boy’ for his public outbursts and antics. According to Los Angeles magazine, “Brando was rock and roll before anybody knew what rock and roll was.” His behavior during the filming of Mutiny on the Bounty (1962) seemed to bolster his reputation as a difficult star. He was blamed for a change in director and a runaway budget, though he disclaimed responsibility for either.

On June 12, 1973, Marlon broke paparazzo Ron Galella’s jaw. Galella had followed Brando, who was accompanied by talk show host Dick Cavett, after a taping of The Dick Cavett Show in New York City. He paid a $40,000 out-of-court settlement and suffered an infected hand as a result. 

On July 1, 2004, Timothy Gahan Brando’s father Marlon died of respiratory failure from pulmonary fibrosis with congestive heart failure at the UCLA Medical Center. The cause of death was initially withheld, with his lawyer citing privacy concerns. He also suffered from diabetes and liver cancer. Shortly before his death and despite needing an oxygen mask to breathe, he recorded his voice to appear in The Godfather: The Game, once again as Don Vito Corleone. However, Marlon recorded only one line due to his health, and an impersonator was hired to finish his lines.
