The financial figures were listed in the petition for probate - the process of a court distributing assets of a deceased person - in LOS ANGELES SUPERIOR COURT, which leaves his estate to a living trust.

The OSCAR-winner's will lists 10 surviving children, aged between 46 and 10 - including PETRA BRANDO-CORVAL, his adopted daughter, whose mother was his former assistant CAROLINE BARRETT.

The will says Brando-Corval or his grandson TUKI BRANDO will not be provided for.

Brando's estate will provide monthly payments to two friend's of the actor's - ALICE MARCHAK and BLANCHE HALL.

The will has named Brando's former made MARIA CHRISTINA RUIZ - the mother of his three youngest children, as their guardian.

The probate petition lists private property worth $3 million (GBP1.6 million) and real estate valued at $18.6 million (GBP10.3 million), which includes his Mulholland Drive home and a Tahitian atoll he purchased in 1966 for $200,000 (GBP111,000).
