Quincy Jones revealed many things in a personal interview recently. Jones talked about his opinions on music, the #MeToo movement, Michael Jackson and the talk of Oprah Winfrey should be running for Presidency. One of the things that he revealed in the interview with Vulture was that he knew that Marlon Brando had intimate relations with Richard Pryor. The hook-up news is no big shocker with all the sexual assault talk in Hollywood, especially surrounding Harvey Weinstein. At least this news states there was actual consent. They were two consenting men who were living it up and enjoying life.
In the interview, Jones randomly went from talking about dancing such dances as the Cha-Cha to stating that Brando had sex with anything. Jones even threw out some names. Jones specifically stated, “Marlon Brando used to go cha-cha dancing with us. He could dance his ass off. He was the most charming motherf#$%@ you ever met. He’d f%$# anything. Anything! He’d f&^*5 a mailbox. James Baldwin. Richard Pryor. Marvin Gaye.”
TMZ caught up with Pryor’s widow, Jennifer Lee Pryor in an exclusive interview. Jennifer Lee Pryor confirmed that Jones’ claims were accurate. Jennifer told TMZ that Richard would have no shame about Quincy’s comments. She says the Richard was always very open about his bisexuality with friends and documented it extensively in diaries. Jennifer says she’ll publish those diaries later this year.
Jennifer said, “It was the ’70s! Drugs were still good, especially quaaludes. If you did enough cocaine, you’d f*** a radiator and send it flowers in the morning.” She believes that her late husband would be hysterical laughing at the fact that Jones spilled the beans. Jennifer obviously feels that what happened between Brando and Pryor was all in good fun and there was nothing crazy about it.
