"We are disappointed that anyone would make such a wrongful comment".
Marlon Brando’s son has responded to claims that his father once had sex with comedy icon Richard Pryor.
Last week, legendary producer Quincy Jones made the claims in a wide-ranging interview with Vulture, saying: “Brando used to go cha-cha dancing with us,”
“He could dance his ass off. He was the most charming motherfucker you ever met.”
He’d fuck anything,” Jones added. “Anything! He’d fuck a mailbox. James Baldwin. Richard Pryor. Marvin Gaye… He did not give a fuck!”
But while the outlandish claims were given unlikely validation by Pryor’s widow, it seems that Brando’s family aren’t so sure after all.
In a denial issued on behalf of his entire family, Brando’s son Miko said: “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.”
Pryor’s daughter Rain has also denied the claims and instead accused Jones of “losing his mind”.
“Q, was once a brilliant music producer who is losing his mind, and decided to garner publicity for himself with a sensationalized interview; and because y’all think and equate Fame and Money with decency, you ate it up like thirsty dogs, as he spewed out a lie about my father who’s not here to defend himself,” she wrote.
She added: “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. Y’all so thirsty and LOVE THEM but ever know the real source or full story.”
