Richard Pryor’s daughter is calling bullshit on Quincy Jones’ claim that her father had a sexual relationship with Marlon Brando.
Earlier this week, Jones made the startling revelation during an interview with Vulture, in which he also claimed to have once dated Ivanka Trump. Jennifer Lee Pryor, the late comedian’s widow, confirmed Jones’ story to TMZ saying Richard would have no shame about his comments since he was open about his bisexuality with friends.
Now, Richard’s daughter, Rain Pryor, has come forward to denounce Jones’ claims and she’s pissed at her dad’s widow for backing them up. In a lengthy Facebook post, Rain not only blasted Jones and Jennifer Lee but the black community for equating “Fame and Money with decency.”
“All you who touted Faux News and preach about wanting blacks to be represented in a great light and then posted Q’s interview are irrelevant and full of your own BS,” she wrote. “Q, was once a brilliant music producer who is losing his mind, and decided to garner publicity for himself with a sensationalized interview; and because y’all think and equate Fame and Money with decency, you ate it up like thirsty dogs, as he spewed out a lie about my father who’s not here to defend himself.
Then on top of it all, my dad’s so called widow validated it, because she needs to keep legitimizing herself and tarnish our dad even after he’s dead. She hated Q and Daddy.”
“It’s funny how during a time of huge inequality, it would have seem to matter more, and , now it’s sensationalized news, but the characters are wrong, and it’s all done to elevate the egos of sad empty people who’s money is proving it doesn’t buy happiness.
However, Daddy did NOT have relations with Brando. There were no trips to his South Pacific Oasis, no flowers or love notes between. Not even a film role.
Why this sudden need to drag Daddy through the Hollywood mud? I find it tasteless and infuriating. At least get the details right, but of course we live in the age of faux news is real unless we disagree for our own agendas, and people need to stay relevant by dishing dirt.”
