Brando's Estate Sued By Former Business Manager

MARLON BRANDO's former business manager is suing the late actor's estate for sexual harassment and wrongful termination.

In a lawsuit file don Monday (04APR05), JO AN CORRALES of Kalama, Washington, claims that she was subjected to a hostile work environment and that Brando exposed his genitals, touched her inappropriately and insisted she watch porn films with him.

The suit demands 10 per cent of the $5 million (GBP2.6 million) in residuals that Corrales claims Brando received during the time of her three-year employment, which ended in 2004.

In December (04), Corrales filed a claim, a precursor to the lawsuit, seeking $3.5 million (GBP1.8 million), but it was rejected by Brando's trustees, says DAVID J SEELEY, a lawyer for Brando's estate.

In the lawsuit Corrales claims Brando subjected her to sexually graphic stories "including several documenting his sexual escapades with minors over the years".

Corrales also alleges that in the two years before the actor's 1 July (04) death, she and other women were called derogatory names and subjected to sexual innuendoes. She also claims that she was removed as co-executor of Brando's will 12 days before he died.
