The most-hyped hook-up of the ’70s didn’t happen — or maybe it did, depending on who you believe.
Marlon Brando’s son Miko has added his name to the naysayers, shooting down claims put forth by legendary music producer Quincy Jones that Brando once had sex with comedian Richard Pryor.
“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,” Miko, the actor’s son with second wife Movita Castaneda, told TMZ.
Jones, 84, told Vulture in a wide-ranging, eye-opening interview that Brando had quite a notorious sex drive — and took it upon himself to name a few of his famous conquests.
“He was the most charming motherf–ker you ever met,” Jones said of the “On the Waterfront” actor. “He’d f–k anything. Anything! He’d f–k a mailbox. James Baldwin. Richard Pryor. Marvin Gaye.”
Not buying Jones’s story was Pryor’s daughter, Rain, who was on same page as Miko Brando.
In a series of Facebook posts, she vehemently denied a hook-up, and called Jones a once “brilliant music producer who is losing his mind and decided to garner publicity for himself with a sensationalized interview.”
She also took a jab at her father’s widow, Jennifer, saying she “hated Q(uincy) and Daddy” and is continuing to “tarnish our dad even after he’s dead.”
“Daddy did NOT have relations with Brando. There were no trips to his South Pacific Oasis, no flowers or love notes between. Not even a film role,” she wrote.
Jennifer previously confirmed Jones’s story to TMZ — and said that Pryor would have no shame in the tryst being made public, as he was always open with his bisexuality.
“It was the ’70s! Drugs were still good, especially quaaludes. If you did enough cocaine, you’d f-k a radiator and send it flowers in the morning,” she said, adding that the comedian would find Jones’s gossiping hilarious.
Pryor died of a heart attack at 65 in 2005 and Brando died a year prior at 80.
