Late actor Marlon Brando‘s son has joined Richard Pryor‘s daughter in disputing Quincy Jones‘ wild claims that the two icons slept together.
In a revealing interview with Vulture magazine, the 84-year-old music legend claimed Brando had sex with Pryor and the late R&B crooner Marvin Gaye.
Pryor’s widow, Jennifer Lee Pryor, confirmed the allegations to gossip tabloid TMZ, revealing her late husband was open about his bisexuality in his diaries.
But the actor’s son, Miko Braondo, insists the claims are not true.
“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 tells TMZ.
Pryor’s daughter Rain took to Facebook to dispute the sexual trysts with Brando. She said Jones was “losing his mind.”
Rain wrote Jones was:
“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 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.”
Quincy has yet to respond to Miko or Rain’s statements.
