The widow of comedy legend, Richard Pryor, confirmed he did have sex with Academy Award winning actor Marlon Brando.

The revelations about Brando’s sex life came out during a tell all interview by music producer Quincy Jones.

Entertainment website Vulture interviewed Jones about his life and career, which included a strong friendship with Brando.

During the interview Jones recalled that Brando would often go cha-cha dancing with him when his story took a turn.

‘He’d fuck anything. Anything!’ Jones said.

‘He’d fuck a mailbox. James Baldwin. Richard Pryor. Marvin Gaye.’

The Vulture journalist – David Marchese – interviewing Jones pressed him on the matter and asked him how he knew Brando had slept with those men.

Come on, man. He did not give a fuck!’ Jones said.

Not surprisingly the internet was rife about the truth of Jones’ comments after the interview was published.

But Pryor’s wife, Jennifer Lee, confirmed his account.

The producer and actress told TMZ that Pryor was never shy about his bisexuality.

In fact, he wrote about it in great detail in his diaries, which Lee plans to publish later this year.

Lee explained the men’s sexual relationship as being a product of its time.

‘It was the ’70s! Drugs were still good, especially quaaludes,’ Lee said.

‘If you did enough cocaine, you’d fuck a radiator and send it flowers in the morning.’

Lee also told the gossip website that Pryor would probably be laughing about Jones’ sharing details about his sex life to the world.

Bisexual Brando

While he alive Brando was very open about being bisexual.

‘Homosexuality is so much in fashion, it no longer makes news,’  Brando told Gary Carey for the actor’s 1976 biography, The Only Contender.

‘Like a large number of men, I, too, have had homosexual experiences, and I am not ashamed.

‘I have never paid much attention to what people think about me.

‘But if there is someone who is convinced that Jack Nicholson and I are lovers, may they continue to do so. I find it amusing.’

A book titled, James Dean: Tomorrow Never Comes, released in 2016 claimed that Brando was in an S&M relationship with heartthrob James Dean.

‘I got the impression that Jimmy was engaged in a cat-and-mouse affair with Brando, with Brando being the cat, of course,’ Dean’s friend and actor Stanley Haggart told the book’s authors.

‘Brando seemed to be toying with Jimmy for his own amusement. I think Brando was sadistically using Jimmy, who followed him around like a lovesick puppy with his tongue wagging.’
