In separate statements, both Marlon Brando's son and Richard Pryor's daughter have come forward to deny claims that their respective fathers had sex with each other in the '70s.

Their comments come after music icon Quincy Jones gave a wild interview with Vulturek, where he claimed that Brando and Pryor had sex.

"He'd fuck anything," Jones, 84, said of Brando. "He'd fuck a mailbox. James Baldwin. Richard Pryor. Marvin Gaye."

Pryor's widow Jennifer Lee later confirmed Jones' comments when speaking to TMZ, saying the two men had sex and that the late comedian wouldn't be ashamed of it. Lee said Pryor was very open about his bisexuality and wrote about his encounters in his diaries, which she plans on publishing later this year. She also said that drugs were the reason Pryor and Brando hooked up.

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

But since Lee spoke with TMZ, both Brando's son and Pryor's daughter have separately come forward to deny the claims.

Taking to Facebook last Thursday, Rain Pryor, who is one of the comedian's seven children, wrote a lengthy post in which she disputed her step-mother's claims that the two stars had relations, calling Lee a "bottom feeder."

"All you who touted Faux News and preach about wanting blacks to be represented in a great light and then posted Q's interview are irrelevant and full of your own BS," Rain, 48, wrote, according to People magazine. "Q, was once a brilliant music producer who is losing his mind, and decided to garner publicity for himself with a sensationalized interview; and because y'all think and equate Fame and Money with decency, you ate it up like thirsty dogs, as he spewed out a lie about my father who's not here to defend himself."

She added:

"Y'all so thirsty and LOVE THEM but ever know the real source or full story, and you're gonna wonder how 45 became president? WAKE UP!!!...So read this, I don't need you as a fan or a friend. I don't need anyone in my life that thinks a sensationalized interview is relevant and 'incredibly well done,' " Rain added. "People who lie or share information to raise themselves up are bottom feeders no matter how much money or influence they have. Wrong is still wrong!!! #GTFOH."

Rain's Facebook post has since been deleted.

This week, however, Brando's son Miko spoke with TMZ about the story, saying his family is "disappointed."

"The Marlon Brando family has heard the recent comments by Quincy Jones and we are disappointed that anyone would make such a wrongful comment about either Marlon Brando or Richard Pryor," he said.

After all the back-and-forth with the Brando/Pryor family, Jezebel writer Rich Juzwaik put it best with his piece: "How Do People Know Who Their Parents Did Or Did Not Have Sex With?" Click here to read that.
