Quincy Jones has been revealing some pretty wild things about all of his years in Hollywood recently, and now he’s apologizing for some of the things he said. From his stories about having dozens of girlfriends around the world who know each other to talking about how the Beatles aren’t great musicians, Jones’ interviews have been the talk of the town for weeks.

Now, it looks like Quincy’s 6 daughters sat down their famous father for a surprise intervention, telling him his recent interviews are entirely too much and he needs to scale it back. He thanked his girls for taking him aside saying, “I’m so grateful for my daughters because they aren’t scared to stand up to their daddy. I am an imperfect human & I’m not afraid to say it.”

He also expands on what he said during these interviews, and attributes a lot of his stories to living a long crazy life, and being sober for 3 years now. He says, “certain details about specific events come flooding back all at once, & even at 85, it’s apparent that wordvomit & bad-mouthing is inexcusable.”

Though Jones most definitely spewed off some insane stories nobody was expecting, most onlookers were more entertained than offended and loved how unfiltered his interviews have been–but of course, his daughters probably weren’t as entertained.

Check out Quincy’s full statement below where he’s apologizing for some of his outlandish revelations.

    The damage is done, Quincy. Shame on you for ranting and spreading a bunch of lies! While some people may forgive you and accept your apology maybe because of your age and your ignorance, but I am sure the majority will not. I think you’d be very angry if the roles were reversed. Shame on you!

  2. Hell we KNOW hollywood is crazy but he may not have needed to say it.LOL Hey he’s 85 and when you get up in age sit don’t matter some times. LOL You say it anyway.

    • Yes but elderly people can lie. There are some nasty 80 plus people still living and all of these are not always telling the truth. I have two in my family (one 88 and one 91. My lying aunt-who married into the family by my uncle) no one hardly goes around her. She lied on just about everyone when I was growing up. She still lies on certain issues. She was a drama queen.

    So now we should just hit the delete button in our brain and forget his whole disgusting smear campaign of all the dead people he dishonored! I cant wait until we get to read all of the dirt he has done in his 85 years and from what some have said, there’s plenty!

  4. At 85, how much more “growing” can he do? I’m glad his daughters intervened. He ought to have known his comments were inappropriate. He’s long overdue for a neurological exam, seriously, considering the mental illness in his family and his brain surgeries.

    Sorry Queency, your apology is too late you’ve already spilled the beans and can’t un-ring that bell. But it will be interesting to see what skeletons start falling out of your closet after you drop dead.

    I’m sure his daughters were horrified. What would happen if there was a nasty tell all on him and his Family. I’m all about that decency. If someone writes a tell all autobiography, ok. If they live out and tell you their business, ok. However, if they have passed away and never revealed publicly things they did privately among friends, keep it to yourself. Q was spilling the tea on other people’s business. Why didn’t he talk about his sorted life?
