Michael Jackson Quincy Jones

Quincy Jones may have backtracked on certain inflammatory statements he made in a magazine interview, but he isn't done drawing attention to himself. Jones recently apologized for saying Richard Pryor and Marvin Gaye slept with acting legend Marlon Brando.

But he isn't done talking.

Now the 84-year-old composer is telling friends that a male music legend is still alive.

Via Blind Gossip -- He says that [male legend] is actually still alive and that he faked his own passing so that he could live a private life. He says he has been in contact with him, that he’s ready to make a comeback, and that he’s going to produce his album.

  • Rayne

    ???? this man.

  • Overpower Radio

    Except the bullets that flew through that car wasn't fake. Maybe he's trynna say MJ isn't dead. He wasn't Pac's producer, and a Quincy Jones / Pac collab doesn't sizzle to me. Either way, I think he's trippin.

  • Aries Dog

    I think he is far from demented. I do think he started to drink again and Is at the “idgaf” end stage of life. I believe every word he says because he has never been called a liar in all the decades he’s been in the limelight (that I know of).

  • Overpower Radio

    Maybe this is his penance ...to say crazy shit, so the world will write of what he said previously as him just being senile

  • Alextra Ballard

    Maaaan,Quincy is str8 delusional or suffering from an onset of dementia

  • dontgetblocked

    Where are his kids? They know Daddy has lost it.

  • Berry Melon

    Those theories are fake, they've been circulating for years now. I saw the morgue image... and the open casket image so it can't be true. Although it's possible due to his vast wealth, but I'm sure he is deceased because there was no reason for him to fake his death in 2009. People claim he faked his death to live a private life - but his life was already private. And personally I don't think the family wouldn't do that, specially MJ's mother - because (lying) would conflict with her religion.

  • KcoolMuziq

    "Although it's possible due to his vast wealth".

    MJ passed away FLAT BROKE! He didn't even own the house he was staying in where he was found at.

    so Prince isn't dead!!!! Trump is president.An alternate reality indeed

  • ?Royalty?

    I don't believe him. I think this is just a ploy to backtrack his earlier comments.

    Pretend to have dementia, come up with some ish you know isnt true, and hope to God you dodge a defamation lawsuit. ??

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    They need to test that man for early-onset dementia. Quincy doesn't seem like he's wrapped 100% tight nowadays.

  • CookieMobster

    Somebody is getting dementia!!

  • Phyllis

    I hope he’s not lyin .. I use to pray to the Most High that I could at least have a dream about Michael Jackson back in the day.. This will make my dreams come true if I could at least come in some type of contact with The King. ????

  • Dane

    That's what I'm thinking, too. Who's going to believe anything he has to say now?

  • Lolly Asher

    The world is a stage and things are not as they seem. BUT. Quincy has steel in his head from a couple of brain surgeries so there's that to factor in.

  • Lorenzo Chaps


  • BloodBlood

    I hope it's Prince ?????

    Quincy has not been crazy before....we will see!

  • Deni Elliott

    Well we know it’s not Michael... Michael would not leave his kids.

  • Victorious82

    Quincy better get right with whomever he calls God. Sounds like he’s getting ready to transition and got spirits visiting him to help him go into the light. Smh


    Not i believe he was molestation Michael Jackson too

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    And why isn’t anyone addressing it!! WHere is his daughters

  • They’re ALL false God’s fools

    When I see a mainstream major news source saying that Quincy Jones said this then I'll believe it. It would be the coolest thing if it were true but I won't even believe Quincy said this until it's reported in mainstream news. oh yea I saw Pac yesterday at the public library.

  • Arrissasso

    Or he’s bored and trolling and these are actually his taxicab confessions.

  • Arrissasso

    In his old age he’s still a very powerful man. Definitely making power plays when he moves, I highly doubt anyone could tell him to stfu.

  • sunni_daze

    That's what it sounds like, a public confessional.

  • guest

    SMDH...Q please stop it!

  • Jessica

    If Quincy said this about a man who had an autopsy performed on him, then old age is truly getting to him.

  • Kanyade

    Michael wouldn't leave his kids like that. This is the stuff of fiction and fantasy.

  • Berry Melon

    Yes, he died in debt but could have easily got out of it. Even though he was in debt, he still managed to live the life of luxury...

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    He did NOT back track. He apologized for running his mouth. He NEVER said what he said was untrue.

  • SweetTEE

    Yep, old people tend to due ish like this before they pass. I have witnessed it. Trying to clear their conscience I believe.

  • Tink Tink

    I say the PTB got to him and made him tell this crazy story that no one would believe, so it would defunct the previous stories he told.

  • JRock

    Sounds more and more like Alzheimer's with Q. Hopefully his family is supportive and gets him medical treatment for it. I know people (family and friends) with Alzheimer's. Trust and believe it's no joke. I was invited to dinner at a friend's home just this past Sunday, February 25 and their grandma, whom I've met before on several occasions kept saying she'd never met me. Even as we spoke and I tried to engage her in present-day conversation, she kept saying "who are you and when did you get here?" Every 5 minutes it was like I just arrived. I just don't believe anyone black or white who industry or society has labeled as a legend would fake their own death. And the thing with people who have Alzheimer's is one day they are totally lucid and of sound mind and the next day....well....

  • Readytochokemothernatureout

    Quincy has issues sotra like my beautiful Uncle I believe...dementia

  • Bossy704

    I do believe folks would clone Michael. I didn't believe in that nonsense but then I saw a mask of Heidi Klum on this chick and I swear I would not have known that wasn't her. I don't put it past his greedy family to create a Michael clone. They have enough candidates in the family to make it believable.

  • blue skies


  • AveIvy

    Where does Quincy say that? It doesn't, Blind Gossip said that he did.

  • KarmaBackAround

    I KNOW he aint talkin bout mike..mike pulled a makaveli yo???

  • KayCeiSoul

    Q did not say that in his interview. Not cool.

  • Knocked Kneed and Pigeon Toed

    Rashida Jones. She passes for white in the movies and shows she's in but that's her pappy.

  • Knocked Kneed and Pigeon Toed

    If this ain't the truth. Like he needs to cleanse whats left of his soul.

    SMDH..... Come on Uncle Q....sit yo ass down.....please....

  • primadutch

    Why not...Janet shipped her daughter off and ain't said shit in over 25 years... I put nothing past this family!

  • Phyllis

    Exactly!! Sometimes older people tell all just like Q is doing. It may sound strange to us, but I refuse to believe that when older folks speak on things we don’t understand that they have Alzheimer’s or dementia.

    Michael involved them.

  • interestingconcept1

    First of all he didn't say that. Secondly it's gossip...I listened to his interviews this was never uttered not a word of this.

    Sigh. People need hits on their blogs I guess.

  • Deb Roberson

    At the time of his death, MJ still owned the Sony/ATV catalogue...he had massive debt BUT if he had decided to sell his catalogue, he could have paid off his debt AND still had plenty of money to live. He didn't want to sell his catalogue...he was proud of it. Anyway, his estate is back to being the BILLIONAIRE DOLLAR EMPIRE it was meant to be. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/c30f447f4b270eb1f638db7751cfce086d04b760280bdfd7675a88180fe7f2e7.gif

  • Deb Roberson

    Michael was pretty much (self) exiled from the US after the 2005 trial. He didn't even want to live at Neverland. After Neverland was raided, he felt it was "tainted"... after being acquitted, he was feed up with being in the US...he needed a break, the trial took a lot out of him...so he left the US and he lived overseas pretty much. He only came back to the US to do his "This Is It" tour, but unfortunately he died before he could...So he was renting a home (where he died) because he hadn't been living here in the US. Michael and his kids had been travelling overseas and lived in Ireland and Dubai for awhile.

  • KcoolMuziq

    Right after the trial yes.

    But in the years since. MJ and his kids moved to Las Vegas for a long while which is where he hooked up with Conrad Murray. Whom was first his kids doctor. Until they made an “arrangement” together. That lead to MJ and his kids moving back to Cali into the “rented” residence he was ultimately “ murdered” in. While he was preparing for his ‘This Is It’ tour comeback.

  • KcoolMuziq

    A catalog that he had borrowed so much against since he was financially strapped. I believe if he had lived he would have ultimately sold it eventually. But his feuding with Sony (which is the sole reason he stopped releasing albums through them)was the reason MJ desperately tried to hold on to it.
    Since they were adamant in trying to get COMPLETE control of it. Which I believe lead to his death.

  • Polly Jackson

    definitely gotta be michael

  • Polly Jackson

    yes michael is a genius

  • Deb Roberson

    AGREED. If Michael was alive and was able to complete the tour, I think that would have helped with his debt. I'm sure he would have continued recording as well. Maybe he would have held on to the catalogue. If he hadn't been murdered the possibilities are endless. RIP King Michael

    What is Quincy smoking???

  • suganspice68

    Michael felt very comfortable while he lived in Ireland, nobody bothered him there.

  • suganspice68

    Paul McCartney most likely was still salty at Michael for buying the Beatles's catalog.

  • Deb Roberson

    Yes he did...he kept recording and was making breakfast for his children :) https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/ffb39d259e659572ff2d140251295fde9683976a25a3075ca2db27da1c9c5dad.jpg
