Pryor and Brando

In a long and rambling interview with Vulture last week, Quincy Jones made several strange allegations.  The one that got our attention was regarding the sex life of Marlon Brando.  “He’d fuck anything.  Anything!  He’d fuck a mailbox.  James Baldwin.  Richard Pryor.  Marvin Gaye”.  It was Pryor’s name that surprised most people.  The first person to publicly refute the allegations was Richard’s daughter Rain.  “Daddy did NOT have relations with Brando.  Why this sudden need to drag Daddy through the Hollywood mud?  I find it tasteless and infuriating.”  You know who it didn’t infuriate?  Richard Pryor’s widow!  Jennifer Lee, who actually married Pryor TWICE, confirmed the Brando story.  She told TMZ, “It was the ‘70s!  Drugs were still good, especially Quaaludes.  If you did enough cocaine, you’d fuck a radiator – and send it flowers in the morning.”  According to Lee, Richard kept a diary of his sexcapades, and she’s planning on publishing it later this year.

Not surprisingly, Rain isn’t too fond of her step mommy or her comment on the subject.  “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.”  Then Rain confirmed yet another dalliance.  “My dad was very open with his life, so much so that news of his relationship with a trans woman in the early 70s and 80s wasn’t really newsworthy nor notable.  As a child I knew her, not as the trans person in our home, but the lady whom everyone accepted.  So much acceptance I did not know she was Trans until recently.  There were no murmurs, nor was it tabloid news or execution by public opinion.  It was just another day in our lives.  It was just another identity I can assess.”
