Jennifer Lee Pryor speaks out about Quincy Jones' claims.
Quincy Jones delivered some of the most shocking interviews of 2018 when he sat down with Vulture and spilled the tea on just about everyone. He claimed that he dated Ivanka Trump and alleged that Michael Jackson stole music. He also spoke about Richard Pryor very candidly, revealing the comedian once had a fling with Marlon Brando. "He was the most charming motherfucker you ever met. He’d fuck anything," he said about Brando.
Pryor's widow, Jennifer Lee, confirmed the news but received some serious backlash from the comedian's daughter, Rain, who denied the claim and referred to Jenner as "my dad's so-called widow" who “needs to keep legitimizing herself and tarnish our dad even after he’s dead.”

Jennifer Lee told The Daily Beast that she suggested that the comedian's kids didn't know him the way she did.
"He wasn’t ashamed of it!” she said about Pryor's fling with Brando. “And when people say, ‘Well let him rest in peace, Jennifer, what are you doing?’ then you’re not a fan, because Richard discussed this. He would be talking about it today if he were here. He’d be pissed off that Q was getting a hard time. He’d probably fill you in on the details!”
She added, "They don’t know their father the way I know him, clearly, and I think she’s off-base. But that’s OK, I wish them well.”
