Richard Pryor’s widow, Jennifer confirmed Wednesday afternoon that the late comedian did indeed sleep with Marlon Brando.
Jennifer Pryor confirmed the news to TMZ, after Quincy Jones said in an interview with Vulture, that Brando would “f*** anything. Anything! He’d f*** a mailbox. James Baldwin. Richard Pryor. Marvin Gaye.”
TMZ caught up with the late comedian’s widow who verified Q’s allegations.
“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.”
Richard would have no shame about Quincy’s comments. She says the comedic legend was always very open about his bisexuality with friends, and documented it extensively in diaries. Jennifer says she’ll publish them later this year.
Jennifer and Pryor were married twice..the first time, August 16, 1981 – October 1982 and then June 29, 2001 – until Pryor’s death on December 10, 2005.
