Quincy Jones Ivanka Trump

Quincy Jones has apologized for making inflammatory statements about deceased celebrities who are not here to defend themselves. The 84-year-old music legend was criticized by many for slandering dead celebrities.

In a statement issued on Thursday, Jones said his six daughters pulled him aside for a surprise "family intervention" due to some "silly things" he's said lately.

"I have LEARNED MY LESSON! Let me tell you, I'm so grateful for my daughters because they aren't scared to stand up to their daddy," he wrote.

He added: "I'm an imperfect human & I'm not afraid to say it. And I'm sorry & I'm not afraid to say it."

In a revealing interview with Vulture magazine, Jones said he once dated Ivanka Trump, and he accused Michael Jackson of stealing songs from other artists.

He also said comedian Richard Pryor and R&B crooner Marvin Gaye slept with actor Marlon Brando.

  • Tiffani Jett

    So, everything he said was a lie? I think he was being honest and his daughters did not like it.

  • You Could Never

    Just saw this. I just hate they shut him up lol. And I dont think it was them. I think it was the Looma-Knatty who told him to hush.

  • Kayke

    He shouldn't have apologized.

  • klwbaby

    I think for the most part what he said was true, but his kids and several people wondered why he was talking about it now.

  • SpillyNillie

    Who came to your crib at 2:08 a.m. Quincy???

  • James Hudson

    Even if it were true (which I doubt) the shit about Marvin Gaye & Richard Pryor was WAY out of pocket, He had NO business saying that shit because they dead & can't defend themselves. But he apologized & spoke on his drinking so I'll chalk up his comments to that.

  • Applebootay

    Silly, word vomit and badmouthing are not necessarily lies. He did better just to stay quiet. This nothing to debunk what he previously said....

  • L.T.L. Since 2007

    HAHAHA! This cat is 84 and gave no fvcks cause he ain't retract shyt.

  • Applebootay

    Welll....ummmmm...he said it was his new 2 year sobriety(not drinking) that made all his/those memories come flooding back....

  • You Could Never

    He sure didnt retract anything. *snort*

  • Junkanoo

    lf it's true then why apologize the illuminati got his ass together

  • James Hudson

    Well he basically said he stopped drinking 3 years ago...Its obvious he's a "Dry Drunk" still an alcoholic just not with the liquor. It makes you lash out because your body still craves alcohol, So Quincy lashed out with the lies about Richard & Marvin & Ivanka

  • Meme

    What I don't understand is why those loose lips revealed nothing about himself correct me if I'm wrong but he didn't say anything about himself did he...I'm wondering if "those" rumours are true about him? But what's baffling me even more is why he went teetotal at that very ripe ole age

  • L.T.L. Since 2007

    I just hate they shut him up lol.

  • James Hudson

    You better believe they got him right together, to them its all about money & his lies & allegations about Marvin Gaye & Richard Pryor whose brands still rake in Millions annually, Quincy got that late night visit at 3:am they didn't knock or call they were standing over his bed.

  • You Could Never

    Daddy Q was pouring that tea just like that gif. JUST LIKE IT. I was like ummm hmmm Mr. Q...go ahead. Who else? YOU DONT SAY.

    I hope next week he like fukk it and goes back to spilling. Bc BABYYYYYYEEE he knows where the bodies are buried lol

  • EMILY POST

    Too late now?

  • angrysolo
  • Applebootay

    OK....that's a spin...however, he never said he lied.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Back peddling and puzzay popping ...

  • i troll it like i see it

    Uh we can't unhear what you said honey...

  • ???TheRider???

    I called this weeks ago, said Rashida, Kidada, and QDIII need to come get they daddy. I guess they called for backup from the other three kids.

  • Roxie Moxie

    Why doesn't he include himself in the mix and talk about how he's a doo-doo chaser who likes getting head from men? Nah?

  • Pitty Patty

    Sounds like somebody was getting ready to expose Quincy so now he apologizing. He still didn't say he was lying.

    I'm sorry means I shouldn't have said what I said. Not that what I said was a lie.

  • Meme

    teeheehee that's some rude awakening lol

  • HoneyyGoodMoneyy_

    Quincy ...........OK .. now sit down & shut the hell up.

  • hottlanta

    I wanna send him a "Thank You" basket because some women always bragging/boasting that I don't have any women friends because they are bitchy and will tell all of your business. Well Quincy knocked that lie out of the box.

  • ShWa

    Somebody had a chat with him because he was doing too much!

  • James Hudson

    Of Course he was lying he's 85 early stages of Alzheimer's & Dementia he didn't even realize what he was saying.

  • JRock

    I'm pretty certain that an apology won't help because your words are indelibly etched on social media and your rants will most likely never be forgotten by the family and friends of these people who you dropped a dime on and who may have been hurt by your diarrhea of the mouth. It doesn't matter if what you said may have been true. These people are dead. Let them rest in peace and keep their secrets buried. Now take your decrepit old ass somewhere and stand in the corner and I mean don't move dammit!

  • Meme

    yes you would think that if youre living in a glass house you'd just keep a low profile, you most certainly do not start skimming pebbles even if its just in the river coz one of them just might end up through yr window

  • Meme

    haha

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    He still didn't lie.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    That is exactly what I just wrote.

  • hottlanta

    Nope. Did Dump tweet about him lying saying he was with his wife, excuse me his prize possession his daughter. That is how I know he was telling the truth.

    NYU apologizes for watermelon flavored water, Kool-Aid at Black History Month event

    New York University issued an official apology to students this week for serving watermelon flavored water and Kool-aid at a Black History Month event, two foods associated with racial stereotypes.

    University President Andrew Hamilton issued a statement, apologizing for the "inexcusably insensitive" incident, noting that the decision came from the school's catering company, as reported by The New York Times.

    The university president also apologized for the response by members of the administration who tried to dismiss a black student's questions about the food choices, after the student posted the back-and-forth on Facebook on Tuesday.

    The catering company, Aramark, fired the two employees after it was revealed they had violated its policies requiring consultation with student leadership and campus cultural organizations for special event menus.

    "We have zero tolerance for any employee who does not adhere to our values or contradicts our longstanding commitment to diversity and inclusion," the company said in a Wednesday statement.

    The independent research university is ranked among the top employers for racial diversity in the nation and has an institution focused on racial issues at its law school, the Center on Race, Inequality, and the Law.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    Good catch.

  • Pitty Patty

    I dont see how it hurt them. Richard and Marvin's legacies are secure. Most people already knew they were bisexual. The other people who didn't believe it were in denial. Just like when Patty supposed;y exposed Luther. Who didnt know Luther was gay or Freddie Jackson? Folks gotta get their heads outta their asses and wake up.

  • V Dubb

    Shut yo ass up old man!!

    I don't want to go to a majority white affair and be served Water melon Koolaid at that.

    Besides everybody know that Grape with Lemon is the only way to go.

  • V Dubb

  • ???TheRider???

    I'm not. I haven't had kool-aid since I was a teenager and I don't really care for watermelon. It's ok, but I wouldn't seek it out.

  • justlooking

    THIS

  • hottlanta

    Naw the cherry mixed with coke makes the best cherry coke everrrrr.

    I haven't had no koolaid since the early 80s.

  • hottlanta

    That comes from 2 people who never had any exposure to anything told them they were cute and they don't wanna be around other women so they can be the center of attention. They want all eyes on them. They feel threatened around other woman, they make it a competition.

  • justlooking

    Girl it's many folks in denial about Lutha and Freddie. God Bless his soul,

    HE LOOK PIT TI FULLLLLLLL https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/5acad6f55855329463cf0a81b19c3f05b24fadeec5cb7ec9f40b10351ebd0168.jpg

  • V Dubb

    Crazy thing is...the females who say this aren't attractive so they really aren't in competition and the attention you may get will be of the "friend zone" variety.

  • angrysolo

    zactly, i haven’t thrown a full bag of sugar in a pitcher in a hot hot minute

  • angrysolo

    not one dam, i muss be the onliest one that doesn’t believe he wrote or even knows this statement was released.

  • Sally Wright McLinn

    He probably just had dinner with Ivanka, not a date. But he's so old and she's so young and pretty he thought it was a date. If she ASKED HIM, then it was a dinner meeting.

  • Sally Wright McLinn

    this made me wonder if the cooks were black or white. Aramark hires a lot of minority and female cooks.

  • Ni Ni

    Somebody had to been playing with photoshop. I refused to believe that Freddy let his teeth get like that.

  • yvette46

    He need to sit his old coon, Alzheimer's, white loving women ass down..

    Exactly! That's all I'm saying! I know my ass ain't perfect, and I check my sh*t when I feel myself pointing fingers. But if you want to "be real" now, then be all the way real and include the sh*t you did too.

  • Vegas1989

  • JRock

    Uh uh. Cherry kool-aid is the best! Grape is second. And dammit if you aren't going to serve the right flavor then I'm just not interested!

  • hottlanta

    I get it but these extra chicks say ALL FEMALES with attitude as if we are not friends with them we are missing out on something great. Judge Mathis had to check one and tell her women don't deal with you because you have a stank attitude but yet you wanna say someone else has an attitude.

  • Alicia.Ashe

    Ha! He didn’t retract tho.

  • hottlanta

    I saw one looking like a California oak tree talking that mess and I was saying to myself bytch please.

    The wife who said it probably screws the vacuum cleaner. Anything with a suction cup.

  • V Dubb

    ?? Hey Boo!!! You know I have no sense.

  • V Dubb

    ??????? and oaks are big and ugly. Right!!!!

  • hottlanta

    Please them girls didn't only make him apologize they made him sign them papers so everything will be in order so they won't be fighting when he dies. So if anything go down they can say he was in sound, mind and body.

  • Kay Gee

    You CAN'T UN-RING THAT BELL...You told people's business like a gossipy ass itchbay, and I can't forget that. You are now disgusting, no matter how "important" you are. There is no more growing for your old behind, you are pushing that senility button pretty hard. I recognized it many months ago when you were on the LSSC you couldn't stay on topic for anything, and you were rambling. You have caused irreparable damage to some of the greats in OUR CULTURE, including yourself!!! #imstillpissedatyou
