Someone might be lying in that whole Marlon Brando hookup with Richard Pryor story that broke last week, courtesy of Quincy Jones' explosive interview with Vulture, which saw the music titan reveal the lustful connection with the two figures.
Mike Brando, Marlon's oldest living son denied the headlines in a new article by TMZ, which was published on Monday (February 12). "The Marlon Brando family has heard the recent comments by Quincy Jones and we are disappointed that anyone would make such a wrongful comment about either Marlon Brando or Richard Pryor," he said in a statement. Meanwhile, Pryor's daughter, Rain, also denied the claims in a since-deleted social media post, which read "daddy did NOT have relations with Brando."
Still, it doesn't align with Pryor's widow, Jennifer, who confirmed the wild revelation. TMZ also caught up with Jennifer, who confirmed the wild news, saying, "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." Jennifer also revealed that Richard would have had no shame in Quincy's comments as the comedic staple was actually quite open about his bisexuality with friends. In fact, he even documented it in diaries, which the widow plans on publishing later this year.
In his Vulture interview, Quincy held nothing back by talking about Brando's wild sex life."[Marlon] Brando used to go cha-cha dancing with us. He could dance his ass off," he revealed. "He was the most charming motherfucker you ever met. He'd f**k anything. Anything! He'd f**k a mailbox. James Baldwin. Richard Pryor. Marvin Gaye."
