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.
