Richard Pryor's widow confirms that he slept with Marlon Brando

In an interview with TMZ published on Wednesday afternoon, Richard Pryor's widow confirmed that he slept with actor Marlon Brando.

The unexpected tryst first came to light in an off-the-rails interview that music producer Quincy Jones did with Vulture, which was published on Wednesday morning. In the interview, which quickly went viral for its plethora of wild claims, Jones alleged that Brando was "the most charming motherf-cker you ever met."

"He's f-ck anything," Jones said. "Anything! He's f-ck a mailbox. James Baldwin. Richard Pryor. Marvin Gaye."

When the interviewer pressed him and asked how he knew that information, he changed the subject.

"Come on, man," he said, frowning. "He did not give a f-ck! You like Brazilian music?"

TMZ contacted Pryor's widow, Jennifer Lee Pryor, who confirmed the alleged hookup.

"Richard would have no shame about Quincy's comments," the outlet paraphrased. "She says the comedic legend was always very open about his bisexuality with friends, and documented it extensively in diaries."

She plans on publishing his diaries later this year.

About Pryor's sexual encounter with Brando specifically, Jennifer was very blunt.

"It was the '70s!" she proclaimed. "Drugs were still good, especially quaaludes. If you did enough cocaine, you'd f-ck a radiator and send it flowers in the morning."

Richard Pryor died of a heart attack at the age of 65 in 2005.
