Earlier this year, Quincy Jones revealed in one of his most transparent interviews ever that friend Marlon Brando would “f*ck anything,” claiming that Richard Pryor and Marvin Gaye were once lovers of his.
While he later apologized for the “word vomit” he spewed in the controversial Q&A, relatives of the “What’s Going On” singer were furious with the legendary producer for making such claims publicly, with daughter, Zeola Gaye, calling Jones “wicked and vindictive.”
Marvin Gaye III is now speaking out as well, telling TMZ that Jones’ claims were false, and while Gaye had no issue with gay people, he simply wasn’t one.
Check out the video below.
The Gayes have reacted much differently than the Pryors, as Richard’s widow confirmed the comic slept with the Oscar-winning actor and would’ve likely laughed off the interview.
