Richard Pryor’s widow, Jennifer Lee Pryor, has confirmed that Quincy Jones’ comment about Richard sleeping with Marlon Brando in his latest interview with Vulture was true.

“It was the ’70s!” she said to TMZ. “Drugs were still good, especially quaaludes. If you did enough cocaine, you’d f—k a radiator and send it flowers in the morning.”

“Come on, man,” Jone said. “He did not give a f—k!”
