Jennifer Lee Pryor says her late husband, Richard Pryor, did indeed have a sexual relationship with legendary actor Marlon Brando in the '70s. 

Lee Pryor was corroborating Quincy Jones' recent statement that the legendary comedian was bisexual. She says Richard was openly bisexual and wrote extensively about his sexual relationships in his diaries, which will be published later this year. 

“It was the 70s," Lee Pryor told TMZ. "Drugs were still good, especially Quaaludes. If you did enough cocaine, you’d f--- a radiator and send it flowers in the morning."

Jones recently gave a wide-ranging interview with Vulture in which he made mention of Brando's sexuality.

"Brando used to go cha-cha dancing with us," Jones said. "He could dance his ass off. He was the most charming motherf---er you ever met. He'd f--- anything. Anything! He'd f--- a mailbox. James Baldwin. Richard Pryor. Marvin Gaye...Come on, man. He did not give a f---!"

Elsewhere in the Vulture interview Jones said Michael Jackson stole music and ripped off musicians regularly. 

He also derided The Beatles, modern-day rap and pop music—in fact, most styles of music other than jazz—and the world's wealthiest 1 percent. 

Jones even claimed to know who killed JFK and that Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen can play guitar and sing like Jimi Hendrix

So if he's right about Richard Pryor and Marlon Brando, he's not totally crazy.
