Richard Pryor’s widow confirms he slept with Marlon Brando


Richard Pryor’s widow, Jennifer, has confirmed what Quincy Jones said in a recent Vulture interview: Pryor slept with Marlon Brando.

In the interview, Jones claimed, “[Marlon] Brando used to go cha-cha dancing with us. He could dance his a** off. He was the most charming motherf***er you ever met. He’d f*** anything. Anything! He’d f*** a mailbox. James Baldwin. Richard Pryor. Marvin Gaye.”

And after the Internet went a little nuts about the claim, Jennifer came forward to confirm it: Yes, Pryor was bisexual. And no, he wasn’t ashamed by it.

“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 said.

She also claimed that Pryor had been open about his sexuality with his friends and said that he had documented it in diaries. She told TMZ that she would eventually publish those diaries, too.

The Jones interview

Jones’ claims about Pryor and Brando were part of a bigger interview in which he also claimed to have dated Ivanka Trump.

Speaking about the problems of the era of Trump, Jones, who recently claimed he had 22 girlfriends, said, “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 motherf***er. Limited mentally — a megalomaniac, narcissistic. I can’t stand him. I used to date Ivanka, you know.”

He followed that up with, “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 motherf***er.’ She had the most beautiful legs I ever saw in my life. Wrong father, though.”

Basically, Jones is on a roll, and we’re all just trying to keep up with whatever he’s going to say next.
