Brittny Gastineau meets half-brother Killian Marcus Gastineau
Brittny Gastineau met her brother named Killan Marcus Gastineau, son of former New York Jets star Mark Gastineau and Danish actress Brigitte Nielsen. Brittny never knew about her brother until now, after 20 long years. Marcus left Britnny’s mom Lisa for Brigitte two decades ago.
Nielsen was formerly married to Sylvester Stallone after appearing in the movie “Rocky IV” in 1985. She then had an affair with Gastineau in 1988 before she moved to Europe for some Italian TV stints.
Killian Marcus, who resides in Italy never get to see Britnny and had never spoken to her. “I’ve always known I have a half-brother, I was told as a kid, but he was totally off the radar. It was like he didn’t exist,” Brittny told People.
She also said that the idea of the reunion came up after her mother, Lisa, met Nielsen at Ivana Trump’s wedding last April. “Brigitte literally said to my mom at Ivana’s wedding: ‘I have a son who wants to meet his sister,’ ” Brittny said.
The reality star and her half-brother Killian got to meet each in Los Angeles just this weekend.
“I feel sad that I’ve had a brother for 20 years that I never knew growing up. He’s very tall and blond, and looks identical to Brigitte. He doesn’t speak much English because he grew up in Italy. He’s really sweet.
