Did Richard Pryor and Marlon Brando sleep together?
Earlier this week Richard Pryor’s widow revealed that the comedian had slept with famed actor Marlon Brando.
Jennifer Lee Pryor confirmed to TMZ that the late comedian had had sex with the Oscar-winning actor after Quincy Jones claimed that they had in an interview with Vulture.
84-year-old musician Jones explained that he, Brando, Pryor, James Baldwin and Marvin Gaye all used to go dancing together.
“Brando used to go cha-cha dancing with us,” he said. “He could dance his ass off.
“He was the most charming motherfucker you ever met. He’d fuck anything. Anything! He’d f*ck a mailbox. James Baldwin. Richard Pryor. Marvin Gaye,” Jones added.
When Vulture asked how Jones knew for sure that Brando had relations with Pryor, Baldwin and Gaye he responded that “He (Brando) did not give a f*ck!”.
The comments cracked open a Pandora’s box of questions about fans of the figures who all became idols in their own right.
Jennifer Lee Pryor put some of the rumours to rest after she confirmed that her husband was “openly bisexual”.
“If you listen to Richard’s comedy—the early stuff— he was way ahead of his time on gay rights!!! #noshame,” she wrote on Twitter.
