Marlon Brando & Richard Pryor Were Lovers, Pryor’s Widow Confirms
Richard Pryor’s widow has confirmed that the late comedian slept with Marlon Brando, after record producer Quincy Jones claims “Marlon Brando would “f**k anything”, and that includes several men.
Jones first made the allegation in a wide-ranging interview with New York Magazine while talking about Brando’s sexual habits. “He’d f** anything. Anything! He’d f** a mailbox. James Baldwin. Richard Pryor. Marvin Gaye,” the producer said.
Pryor’s widow Jennifer Lee Pryor later corroborated Jones’s comments, telling TMZ that the comedian, who was openly bisexual, would be “cracking up” about his relationship with Brando being made public. “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,” she said.
Lee Pryor added that Pryor had written extensively about his sexual relationships in his diaries, which she says will be published later this year. The comedian was married seven times to five different women. He and Lee Pryor divorced after a year together in 1982, but remarried in 2001 and remained together until his death.
Richard Pryor died in December 2005 at age 65. His problems with drugs included an infamous event in 1980, in which he set himself on fire after freebasing cocaine and suffered burns over more than half his body.
Brando died in July 2004 at age 80. He had relationships with numerous women over the years and fathered at least nine children – with some reports saying he fathered 11 or 12. According to the New York Daily News, he acknowledged having homosexual relationships in the biography, “Marlon Brando: The Only Contender.”
