Richard Pryor And Marlon Brando Hooked Up; Pryor's Widow Confirms Relationship

Recently, a rather shocking claim was made by 84-year-old music industry legend Quincy Jones. In a tell-all interview with Vulture, Jones really told all. He not only dished about his own love life (he claims he dated Ivanka Trump), but about the love lives of other celebrities.

Many people brushed off the seemingly outlandish claim Jones made about funny man Richard Pryor having sex with Marlon Academy Award-winning actor, Marlon Brando, but Pryor's widow says it's true.

Jennifer Lee and Pryor were married in 1981, divorced in 1982, but remarried again in 2001. The couple remained together until his death 9in 2005. The widow says that her late husband was very open about his sex life.

She says Jones was telling the truth when he said that Pryor had sex with Marlon Brando, the Academy Award-winner who is best known for films such as 'On the Waterfront' and 'The Godfather'.

Jones was telling Vulture about Brando's indiscriminate sexual appetite. “[Brando] was the most charming motherf--ker you ever met. He’d f--k anything. Anything! He’d f--k a mailbox. James Baldwin. Richard Pryor. Marvin Gaye.”

Lee claims that Pryor never had any shame about the affair. He was openly bisexual and kept a journal of his romantic encounters.

“It was the ’70s!” she said. “Drugs were still good, especially Quaaludes. If you did enough cocaine, you’d f--k a radiator and send it flowers in the morning.”

Pryor was married seven times (twice to Lee). He was also romantically linked to actresses Margot Kidder and Pam Grier.

In his autobiography, 'Pryor Convictions: And Other Life Sentences,' he admitted to being bisexual. He said he had a two-week relationship with a transvestite, which he called 'two weeks of being gay'.

Lee plans to release Pryor's journal later this year. The memoirs detail the star's sexual escapades in vivid detail.

Lee had planned a biopic of Pryor in 2014, but it's been in limbo. One of the problems is that Pryor's son, Richard Pryor Jr., had lawyers send his stepmother a 'cease and desist' letter. Pryor Jr. claims that Lee was using 'illegal, fraudulent' activity to get the rights to make the film and he threatened legal action.

Brando was also known for having a very active sex life, which included relationships with both men and women over the years. He had so many children from different women that he once joked about one son, saying he didn’t know who the mother was.

Brando was one of the few celebrities at the time to be open about his bisexuality, and even spoke about it in interviews.

“Homosexuality is now so much in fashion it no longer makes news. Like a large number of men, I, too, have had homosexual experiences, and I am not ashamed. I have never paid much attention to what people think about me," he said in an interview in the '70's.

In addition to Pryor, Brandon was romantically linked to Marilyn Monroe, Rita Moreno, Rita Hayworth, Grace Kelly, Laurence Olivier, John Gielgud, James Dean and Rock Hudson. His longest relationship was with Wally Cox; though not exclusive, it lasted until Cox's death in 1973, and Brando kept Cox's ashes. When Brando died, his family honored his wishes to have his ashes mingled with Cox's ashes.
