- Legendary music producer Quincy Jones apologised Thursday for two recent viral interviews that he gave to Vulture and GQ.
- Jones, citing a “family intervention” from his daughters, apologised for his “wordvomit” and “bad-mouthing” in the interviews.
- In his interview with Vulture, Jones claimed that he “used to date” Ivanka Trump, and that Marlon Brando and comedian Richard Pryor had a sexual relationship.
The 85-year-old producer shared a note on Twitter saying that his six daughters gave him a “family intervention” over the interviews.
“It’s apparent that ‘wordvomit’ & bad-mouthing is inexcusable,” Jones wrote in the note. “I am sorry to anyone whom my words offended & I’m especially sorry to my friends who are still here with me & to those who aren’t.”
