Quincy Jones is on a roll.
He recently stated that at 84-years old, he currently has 22 girlfriends spread out around the world. Now in a new Vulture interview, the 27-time Grammy Award winner claims he used to date Ivanka Trump. Yes, THAT Ivanka Trump, as in the daughter of the 45th president of the United States.
Jones, who turns 85 this March, said he met Ivanka about 12 years ago through his daughter Kidada Jones. He shared the story with David Marchese along with his opinions of Donald Trump.
What’s stirred everything up? Is it all about Trumpism?
It’s Trump and uneducated rednecks. Trump is just telling them what they want to hear. I used to hang out with him. He’s a crazy motherfucker. Limited mentally—a megalomaniac, narcissistic. I can’t stand him. I used to date Ivanka, you know.
Yes, sir. Twelve years ago. Tommy Hilfiger, who was working with my daughter Kidada said, ‘Ivanka wants to have dinner with you.’ I said, ‘No problem. She’s a fine motherfucker.’ She had the most beautiful legs I ever saw in my life. Wrong father, though.
In 2006, Trump would have been about 25 and Jones who would have been a vibrant 73. Marchese did not ask any further questions about the alleged affair and Jones did not offer additional details.
Ivanka Trump turns 37 this year and is married to Jared Kushner, a senior adviser to her father. They married in 2009 and have three children together. Kushner and Trump first met in 2007, which is after the time that Jones said he dated Trump.
Neither Papa Trump or First Daughter Trump has taken to Twitter as of yet to address the issue, but that is sure to come. Trump is known to offer his unfiltered opinion about celebrities. He has name-checked Jay-Z, Steph Curry, and Jemele Hill on Twitter in response to criticisms of his conduct as president. There is little doubt he will do the same when a man (an older Black man no less) claims he once dated his beloved daughter.
In the meantime, somebody put Uncle Q down for a nap. Ask one of those 22 girlfriends to get him a good pillow.
