In a recent interview with Vulture, Quincy Jones revealed that Marlon Brando likely had sex with James Baldwin, Richard Pryor, and Marvin Gaye. Now, Pryor’s widow has confirmed that the legendary comedian did in fact sleep with the film icon.
Jennifer Lee told TMZ that her husband’s bisexuality was no secret and that Pryor would have no shame about Jones’ comments. “It was the ’70s,” she said. “Drugs were still good, especially quaaludes. If you did enough cocaine, you’d f*** a radiator and send it flowers in the morning.”
Pryor’s fluid sexuality was no secret. His bisexuality was documented in his 1995 autobiography, Pryor Convictions, and in Scott Saul’s Becoming Richard Pryor.
Lee told TMZ that Pryor also documented his trysts and relationships extensively in diaries, which she plans to publish later this year.
Jones’ interview also includes other details like dating Ivanka Trump and his brutally honest thoughts on music.
