Late actor Marlon Brando's son has joined Richard Pryor's daughter in dismissing Quincy Jones' claims the two icons slept together.

Jones stated Brando would have sex with anything during a recent interview with Vulture, listing Pryor among those he was intimate with, and Pryor's widow, Jennifer Lee Pryor, confirmed the story, revealing her late husband was open about his bisexuality.

But the actor's son, Miko, insists the claims are not true.

"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," Miko tells TMZ.

After Jones' interview earlier this month, Pryor's daughter Rain took to Facebook to dispute the sexuality claims made about her dad, writing: "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.

"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: "Then on top of it all, my dad's so called widow validated it, because she needs to keep legitimizing herself and tarnish our dad even after he's dead..."

Quincy Jones has yet to respond to Miko Brando or Rain Pryor's statements.
