Adding to the trauma of her personal life, in her early twenties, while pregnant with his child, her boyfriend was killed by her older stepbrother, Christian. Christian maintained that it was accident, but spent several years in prison following a plea bargain.
In the next few years, Cheyenne Brando began suffering from mental illness including depression and possibly schizophrenia. On April 16, 1995, Cheyenne Brando died by suicide. She was twenty five years old.
