The latest case of “did they or didn’t they” rages on…
In the undying debate of Marlon Brando‘s sex life, the silver screen icon’s oldest living son says his dad did NOT get it on with Richard Pryor, despite multiple people claiming otherwise.
Miko Brando told TMZ:
“The Marlon Brando family has heard the recent comments by Quincy Jones and we are disappointed that anyone would make such a wrongful comment about either Marlon Brando or Richard Pryor.”
The family’s statement comes a week after Quincy Jones claimed The Godfather star would “fuck anything” back in they day — like, even a “mailbox” — and spilled a few male celebs the actor purportedly tangoed with.
While nothing has since come up about Brando’s alleged encounters with Marvin Gaye and James Baldwin, the Brando-Pryor hookup was confirmed by the comedian’s widow Jennifer Pryor, who said Pryor was very open about his bisexuality.
But apparently, the kids remember the ’70s differently. Pryor’s daughter Rain Pryor denied that a tryst ever went down between the two, saying in a now-deleted post that Pryor had a relationship with a trans woman once, but “Daddy did NOT have relations with Brando.”
For what it’s worth, the A Streetcar Named Desire star was open about his dabblings in dick — he famously told a French journalist in 1976:
“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… Homosexuality is so much in fashion, it no longer makes news.”
Oh, but it does!
Do you believe the Brando family? Would an aloof actor like Brando share hookup stories with his children over Quincy Jones? We’ll let you decide.
