Well damn, it is TRUE. Richard Pryor‘s widow says so. We’re of course referring to the story that Quincy Jones told about Pryor and Marlon Brando hooking up for a mano-a-mano love session back in the 70s
“[Brando] was the most charming mother*cker you ever met. He’d f*ck anything. Anything! He’d f*ck a mailbox. James Baldwin. Richard Pryor. Marvin Gaye,” Jones revealed in the Vulture interview.
Jennifer Lee — who was married to Pryor in the early 80s and again in the 2000s up until his death— told TMZ on Wednesday that it was true and he would have no shame about it.
“It was the ’70s!” she said. “Drugs were still good, especially quaaludes. If you did enough cocaine, you’d f*ck a radiator and send it flowers in the morning.”
She added that Pryor, who passed away in 2005, was open about his bisexuality. He even documented it in his diaries which she says she’ll publish later this year.
“Oooh sh*t!,” says somebody who did the do with Pryor and though their secret was safe.

*In other news about the late funny man, Lee Daniels is back in the director’s chair for the long-in-the-works Pryor biopic, featuring Mike Epps in the starring role.
The filmmaker had the director’s job originally, but eventually backed out due to his insane work schedule, which includes serving as executive producer and co-writer on Fox’s “Empire” and the upcoming music drama “Star.”
During a press conference, the Weinstein Company announced that Daniels will carve out enough time to direct, “Richard Pryor: Is It Something I Said,” which stars Oprah Winfrey as Pryor’s grandmother, and Kate Hudson as Jennifer Lee Pryor.
It was also announced that Jay Z has signed on as a producer, with cameras set to start rolling soon.
Earlier this week, Daniels revealed that he is also working on a musical based on his life.
Speaking to Billboard, Daniels, 59, said he was “in talks about doing a musical film about my life. I’ve had a pretty interesting life. I’ve come from the projects. I’ve been homeless.”
