In a recent interview with Vulture, Quincy Jones made some eyebrow-raising claims including that Marlon Brando and Richard Pryor once had sex. Now Marlon Brando’s son Miko Brando is denying the story.
“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,” Miko Brando told TMZ.
Jones had described Marlon Brando as” the most charming motherfu*ker you ever met. He’d fu*k anything. Anything! He’d fu*k a mailbox.”
He went on to name Pryor, James Baldwin and Marvin Gaye as notable names Marlon Brando had slept with.
Pryor’s daughter Rain Pryor also denied the allegation. In a social media post, Rain Pryor says that her father did have a relationship with a transgender woman at one point in his life. However, she says “Daddy did NOT have relations with Brando.”
The post has since been deleted.
Jennifer Lee Pryor, the wife of the late comedian, has said that the alleged fling between Richard Pryor and Marlon Brando did occur.
“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 told TMZ.
