Richard Pryor’s Widow Confirms He Slept With Marlon Brando

While legendary musician Quincy Jones was the first to share that comedian Richard Pryor slept with actor Marlon Brando, Pryor’s own widow is now confirming the shocking news, saying the influential stand-up was always open about his bi-sexuality.

Pryor’s widow, Jennifer, told TMZ that her former husband would be cracking up at Jones’ surprising reveal, saying he was unashamed of his sexual adventures and even documented them extensively in his journals, which she plans to publish later this year.

The comic infamously joked about giving men fallacio in his first recorded stand-up special, Richard Pryor: Live and Smokin,’  which you can watch here.

As for his time spent with Brando, Jennifer chalks it up to the times.

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