Richard Pryor’s Widow Confirms Quincy Jones’ Claim That Pryor Slept with Marlon Brando

Quincy Jones’ eyebrow-raising interview with Vulture revealed a lot of things: his relationship with the Trumps, his feelings on the state of music today, and he even said Michael Jackson stole music. He also shared a claim about the late Richard Pryor: that the comedian had sex with The Godfather star Marlon Brando.

Jones’ claims seemed a bit hyperbolic—he also said Brando would, and I quote, “fuck a mailbox.” But Pryor’s widow, Jennifer, confirmed to TMZ that Pryor and Brando did, in fact, hook up.

In his interview, Jones said that Brando was “the most charming motherfucker you ever met,” and he would “fuck anything.” By anything, he meant anyone: “He’d fuck a mailbox. James Baldwin. Richard Pryor. Marvin Gaye,” Jones said.

The interviewer, David Marchese, seemed incredulous. “He slept with them? How do you know that?” Marchese asked. Jones laughed and said, “Come on, man. He did not give a fuck!” Jones then immediately and inexplicably steered the conversation to Brazilian music.
