Quincy Jones Apologizes for Controversial Claims in Recent Interviews: 'I Am An Imperfect Human'

Quincy Jones has issued an apology following the publication of controversial interviews, in which he made several bombshell statements, including the allegation that Michael Jackson “stole a lot of songs” and that he once dated Ivanka Trump.

The legendary Thriller producer issued a statement on Thursday (February 22) following a “surprise family intervention.”

“A couple weekends ago, my six daughters (who I’m beyond proud of) took me aside to do a surprise ‘family intervention’ because of some silly things I’ve said in two recent interviews &…I have LEARNED MY LESSON! Let me tell you, 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. And I’m sorry & I’m not afraid to say it,” he wrote.

“Even at 85, it’s apparent that ‘wordvomit’ & badmouthing has contradicted the very real messages I tried to relay about racism, inequality, homophobia, poverty…you name it. And of course I don’t want that.”

“I’m 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,” he added.

“Love, an 85 year old bow-legged man who is still learning and growing from his mistakes.”

    The old turtle who should have expired a decade ago had some senior citizen moments and the blood thirsty journalists abused the idiot. I bet it made him feel special in these sad and delusion-filled twilight years of his now irrelevant life.
    Sad. Old ppl are so sad. I guess they will shove him right into some care house now.

    He spoke the truth. Richard Pryor’s wife wasn’t even upset about it. I think it’s good to show that the “good old days” were just a more private version of stuff that happens now.

    Old people always use their age as an excuse. He knew what he was doing.

    I love when he revealed that Marlon Brando had a thing for black men.
