Quincy Jones claims a Hollywood icon had a string of male lovers

Producer Quincy Jones has given a revealing interview to Vulture where he shares his frank opinions about a wide range of well known people he’s come into contact with him over his long career.

In the interview Jones, who produced Michael Jackson’s Off The Wall, Thriller and Bad albums describes the late singer as one of the greediest people he came across. He then goes on to label Cyndi Lauper a diva and describes The Beatles as one of the worst band’s he heard live.

Later in the discussion Jones drops that he used to go out cha-cha dancing with Marlon Brando, and says Brando has sex with a string of well known male celebrities including author James Baldwin, comedian Richard Pryor and soul singer Marvin Gaye.

All of the people the 84 year old producer lists have passed away. Gaye was shot by his own father in 1984, Baldwin died in 1987, Brando passed away in 2004 and Pryor died from a heart attack in 2005.

Pryor’s daughter Rain Pryor has disputed the claims from Jones, but his widow Jennifer Lee Prior also spoke up and said the comedian was indeed bisexual.

Jennifer Lee Prior was married to the comedian twice. She became his fourth wife when they married in 1981, but they split up just a year later. They later remarried in 2001. In between their marriages Pryor was married to Flynn Belaine – twice.
