The world of celebrity was a different beast back when Marlon Brando and Richard Pryor were big names. Ultimate decadence has always been defined as diddling another dude’s dick just because you can. The only difference is that you kept quiet about it in the 70s. It was called being polite. When you have women throwing their whoopee pie at you by the pound some guys get bored and start fiddling with bisexuality like a paleontologist that found a new type of fossil. Except these curious men like to bury the new bones that they find. Brando and Pryor allegedly just happened to be two switch hitters according to Quincy Jones who initially outed the two as being intimate at one time. Richard’s widow, Jennifer Lee, made things even harder to deny when she confirmed Quincy’s allegations. Now Marlon’s son, Miko Brando,and Richard’s daughter, Rain Pryor, are denying all possible homosexual allegations against their fathers.
“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,” said Miko, Brando’s oldest living son.
Jones was first to allege that the legendary duo had a sexual relationship, telling Vulture that Brando would “f— anything. Anything! He’d f— a mailbox. James Baldwin. Richard Pryor. Marvin Gaye.”
Pryor’s widow Jennifer confirmed the rumor, telling TMZ that her late husband was always open about his bisexuality with friends and would not be ashamed that the relationship was revealed publicly. She also said the comedy icon wrote about sleeping with men extensively in diaries, which she says she plans to release later this year.
One thing to remember as offspring is that you’ll never know all of the places your dad’s dick has been. It’s possible Quincy is just another crazy old coot. It’s also possible Vito Corleone violated Richard’s nether regions at Pryor’s own request. Either way in the words of Rick James “cocaine is a hell of a drug” and the spectrum of sexual activities you would not partake in normally while not on drugs gets slightly smaller when you’re on the stimulant.
