Earlier today, reports surfaced about allegations against comedian Paul Mooney and the claim that he sexually violated Richard Pryor’s son, Richard Pryor Jr.
WARNING: Graphic language
Pryor’s former bodyguard, Rashon Kahn, made the allegations, saying that Pryor, Sr. at one point had a $1M bounty on Mooney because of it. Pryor Jr.’s stepmother, Jennifer Pryor, confirmed the allegations, though it was hard to determine how old Pryor Jr. was at the time of the violation. Kahn said he was a little boy, while his stepmother said it happened in the 80’s when the now 58-year-old would have been of age to consent to a sexual relationship.
Since the story came out and after Mooney denied the allegations, TMZ caught up with Pryor Jr. who offered a bit more information about all of it. See what he had to say in the transcript and video below.
TMZ: Is there any truth that you and Paul Mooney had a sexual relationship with Paul Mooney?
