Iconic US music producer Quincy Jones‘ claim that comedian Richard Pryor and late actor Marlon Brando were lovers has been confirmed by Pryor’s widow, Jennifer Lee.
Jones had made the allegation in a no-hold-bared interview with New York Magazine.
He said Brando was sexually wild and that he would sleep with anything.
“He’d fuck anything. Anything! He’d fuck a mailbox. James Baldwin. Richard Pryor. Marvin Gaye,” Jones had said.
In the interview which went viral online, Jones also described the Beatles as “the worst musicians in the world” and claimed that Michael Jackson stole “a lot of stuff” from other musicians.
He also claimed to know the identity of the man who killed President John F Kennedy.
Jones added that he briefly dated US President Donald Trump‘s daughter Ivanka, and described Trump as a “fucking idiot”.
Speaking to TMZ, Pryor’s widow said that her late husband, who was openly bisexual, often cracked up about his relationship with Brando being made public.
“It was the 70s! Drugs were still good, especially Quaaludes. If you did enough cocaine, you’d fuck a radiator and send it flowers in the morning,” Lee said.
She added that Pryor had written extensively about his sexual relationships in his diaries, which she says will be published later this year.
