At the beginning of the week, Richard Pryor’s widow, Jennifer Lee, claimed Richard and Marlon Brando had a relationship during the 1970s. While speaking with reporters from TMZ, Jennifer said she had read journal entries from him which stated that he often hooked up with men.
However, according to his daughter, Rain Pryor, that isn’t the truth. In an Instagram post, Rain said he “did not have relations” with Brando and there were never trips to the South Pacific Oasis or love notes or romantic gifts.
On Thursday night, she claimed that there “wasn’t even a film role involved.” Additionally, Rain stated the story is just conjecture for the sake of generating views and ratings.
She rhetorically asked why everyone felt the need to “drag” her father through the mud. Rain added, “we live in the age of faux-news-is-real unless we disagree for the sake of our agendas.”
All you who touted Faux News and preach about wanting blacks to be represented in a great light and then posted Q’s…
Just yesterday, it was revealed by Quincy Jones in an interview with Vulture that Marlon and Richard had allegedly gotten together.
Jones claimed Brando “was the most charming motherf*cker you ever met,” and he’d “f*ck anything!”
Either way, regardless of the stories are true or not, Rain merely wants everyone to stop focusing on her dead father and look at the real issues instead.
The daughter of the famous comedian said he was “brilliant and bruised,” and a “brutally honest” political activist. Fans should be talking about his comedic genius and not his alleged fraternizations.
During an interview with People Magazine in 1973, Brando admitted to having relationships with men. He stated it was something he was “unashamed of,” but the idea that he had gotten together with Jack Nicholson was “laughable.”
