“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,” Brando’s son Miko told TMZ.
Jones, 84, told Vulture last week, “[Brando] was the most charming motherf–ker you ever met. He’d f–k anything. Anything! He’d f–k a mailbox. James Baldwin. Richard Pryor. Marvin Gaye.”
Pryor’s widow Jennifer previously confirmed the hookup and said that the openly bisexual star wouldn’t have been ashamed to admit it.
“It was the ’70s!” she said. “Drugs were still good, especially quaaludes. If you did enough cocaine, you’d f–k a radiator and send it flowers in the morning.”
However, Pryor’s daughter, Rain, denied the claims and slammed both Jennifer and Jones.
“Daddy did NOT have relations with Brando … Q was once a brilliant music producer who is losing his mind, and decided to garner publicity for himself with a sensationalized interview,” she griped on Facebook last week. “He spewed out a lie about my father who’s not here to defend himself. Then on top of it all, my dad’s so called widow validated it, because she needs to keep legitimizing herself and tarnish our dad even after he’s dead. She hated Q and Daddy.”
