In a recent interview that went viral, Ouincy Jones told Vulture that, “Brando was the most charming mother-ker you ever met. He’d f-k anything. Anything! He’d f-k a mailbox. James Baldwin, Richard Pryor, Marvin Gaye.” This sent the internet into frenzy.
Well, we can put all the unanswered questions to rest. Pryor’s widow Jennifer Lee confirmed the allegations on Wednesday. Jennifer was married to Richard in the early 80’s and again in the 2000’s until his death. According to TMZ, Jennifer stated that it was true, and he would have no shame about it.
“Richard Pryor had a lot of sex in the ‘70’s—and it was with both men and women—including Marlon Brando.” It was the 70’s! Drugs were still good, especially Quaaludes. If you did enough cocaine, you’d f-k a radiator, and send it flowers in the morning.”
Jennifer made sure to note, “Richard would have no shame about Quincy’s comments. He was always open about his bisexuality with friends, and he documented it in detail in diaries, which she plans on publishing later this year.
