Richard Pryor Jr, the son of late American stand-up comedian, Richard Pryor has confirmed the bombshell report that comedian Paul Mooney sexually assaulted him when he was a minor.
This comes after the late comedian’s former bodyguard, Rashon Khan made the allegations in an interview with Comedy Hype.
Khan claimed Pryor Sr. and Mooney’s personal and professional relationship began deteriorating around 1986, because “Mooney had f**k*d Richard’s son by that time.”
According to Khan, Pryor was so angry when he found out Mooney assaulted his son, and even tried to hire a hitman for $1 million to kill Mooney, now 78. Pryor died in 2005 at age 65.
TMZ recently caught up with Richard Jr, who is openly gay and asked him to comment on the allegations.
“Whatever happened in my life, it happened when I was young. Way before the eighties,” said Richard Jr, now 58. When asked if he was in a consensual relationship, Richard Jr. said, “How could any relationship be consensual if I was a teenager?”
