Legendary music producer Quincy Jones set tongues wagging when he revealed comedian Richard Pryor‘s bisexuality in an interview with Vulture magazine. It sounded like the ravings of a senile old man, but Pryor’s wife Jennifer confirms he did sleep with actor Marlon Brando during the peak of his career in the 1970s.
Pryor, who died of a heart attack at age 65 in 2005, was apparently very promiscuous and didn’t discriminate between willing men or women at drug-fueled sex parties.
Jennifer tells TMZ, Richard would have no shame about Quincy’s comments. She says her late husband was always very open about his bisexuality with friends.
“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.
Quincy Jones also revealed the late singer Marvin Gaye slept with Brando who died in 2004 at age 80.
