Iconic comedian Richard Pryor's widow has confirmed he made love with acclaimed actor Marlon Brando.

The romance was brought to the public's attention in an explosive interview with legendary producer Quincy Jones, in which he also implies Brando may have had sex with Marvin Gaye and a mailbox.

The man behind Michael Jackson's biggest albums and a whopping 79 Grammy nominations also slams the Beatles as "the worst musicians in the world", claims to know who assassinated JFK and says he dated Ivanka Trump in the Vulture interview.

"Richard would have no shame about Quincy's comments," Jennifer Lee Pryor told TMZ.

"It was the '70s! Drugs were still good, especially quaaludes. If you did enough cocaine, you'd f**k a radiator and send it flowers in the morning."

She also revealed that Pryor was open about his bisexuality, which he detailed in diaries that she hopes to publish later this year.

Jones and Brando were good friends

"He could dance his ass off. He was the most charming mother**ker you ever met," he told Vulture.

"He'd f**k anything. Anything! He'd f**k a mailbox. James Baldwin. Richard Pryor. Marvin Gaye ... He did not give a f**k!"

The full interview, which includes Jones naming former US President John F. Kennedy's killer as Chicago mobster Sam Giancana, is viewable at
