Feb. 8 (UPI) -- Richard Pryor's widow says the late comedian indeed slept with Marlon Brando.

Jennifer Lee confirmed the hookup to TMZ after record producer Quincy Jones claimed in a new interview that Pryor had sex with Brando, who died in 2004.

"It was the '70s! Drugs were still good, especially quaaludes. If you did enough cocaine, you'd [expletive] a radiator and send it flowers in the morning," she said.

Jones had told Variety Brando slept with Pryor, who died in 2005, as well as writer James Baldwin and singer Marvin Gaye.

"He was the most charming [expletive] you ever met," the 84-year-old record producer said. "He'd [expletive] anything. Anything! He'd [expletive] a mailbox. James Baldwin. Richard Pryor. Marvin Gaye."

Lee, who married Pryor twice, said the comedian was open about his bisexuality with friends and wouldn't be fazed by Jones' comments. She said the comedian detailed his relationships in diaries, which she plans to publish this year.
