Richard Pryor’s Daughter Says He Had A Secret Relationship But It Wasn’t With Marlon Brando + Blasts the Black Community for Believing It

Well, that Quincy Jones interview really set the gossip world ablaze!

You’d better believe that publications are jostling to book him right now…

The icon had made some interesting claims during a chat with Vulture.

"[Brando] used to go cha-cha dancing with us. He could dance his [expletive] off. He was the most charming [expletive] you ever met. He’d [expletive] anything. Anything! He’d [expletive] a mailbox. James Baldwin. Richard Pryor. Marvin Gaye.”

The interview then asked, "He slept with them? How do you know that?"

Quincy shot back; "Come on, man. He did not give a [expletive]! You like Brazilian music?"

What a segue! Haha.

The late comedian's widow, Jennifer Lee Pryor, has since responded to this explosive allegation, stating, "It was the '70s! Drugs were still good, especially quaaludes. If you did enough cocaine, you'd [expletive] a radiator and send it flowers in the morning."

And now his daughter, Rain, has some thoughts on all this. 

She hopped onto Facebook to throw in her take. While she confesses that her dad was definitely super sexually liberated, she believes that he never had sex with Brando. He did, however, apparently sleep with a Trans woman, which is catching a lot of headlines for whatever reason. 

"Daddy did NOT have relations with Brando," she penned. "There were no trips to his South Pacific Oasis, no flowers or love notes between. Not even a film role. Why this sudden need to drag Daddy through the Hollywood mud? I find it tasteless and infuriating."

"My dad was very open with his life, so much so that news of his relationship with a trans woman in the early '70s and '80s wasn't really newsworthy nor notable," she explained. "As a child I knew her, not as the trans person in our home, but the lady whom everyone accepted. So much acceptance I did not know she was Trans until recently."

"As one of his children, I should not have to defend my brilliant and bruised father to anyone. I should be commenting on his genius comedy and the fact that he not only wrote, directed and produced ... he had an office at Columbia Pictures and was once one of the Richest men. I should be sharing prolific anecdotes because he was an activist and so brutally honest. But instead I am sharing much vulnerability with some mean spirited gossip rag readers who believe anyone with money and fame."

"Bottom line. This man Richard Pryor, is not your Hollyweird scandal performance. He is our Daddy. He is our perfect imperfection. He is our legacy and we are most certainly his. So get a life and focus back on what’s really going on in the world."

In another Facebook rant, Rain says the fact people believe Quincy Jones so easily is in part why Donald Trump is in office.: 

“All you who touted Faux News and preach about wanting blacks to be represented in a great light and then posted Q’s interview are irrelevant and full of your own BS,” she wrote in a Facebook post. “Q, was once a brilliant music producer who is losing his mind, and decided to garner publicity for himself with a sensationalized interview; and because y’all think and equate Fame and Money with decency, you ate it up like thirsty dogs, as he spewed out a lie about my father who’s not here to defend himself.”

And Rain didn’t omit a response to Pryor’s widow. In fact, Lee was hit with equal blame and even accused of some disdain.

“Then on top of it all, my dad’s so-called widow validated it, because she needs to keep legitimizing herself and tarnish our dad even after he’s dead. She hated Q and Daddy,” she wrote.
