Quincy Jones issued a public apology after spilling a number of wild stories about his celebrity friends.
Jones, who spoke to both GQ and Vulture in candid interviews, took to Twitter Thursday to say he’s sorry for his “bad-mouthing.”The legendary music producer shared many tales in his interviews, saying he allegedly dated Ivanka Trump 12 years ago, calling the Beatles “the worst musicians,” and calling his late pal Michael Jackson a “Machiavellian” and “greedy,” claiming he stole songs.
“My six daughters (who I’m beyond proud of) took me aside to a surprise ‘family intervention’ because of some silly things I’ve said in two recent interviews,” the 84-year-old wrote.
“When you’ve been fortunate enough to have lived such a long & crazy life (& you’ve recently stopped drinking – three years ago!), certain details about specific events (which do NOT paint the full picture of my intentions of experiences) come flooding back all at once,” he continued. “Even at 85, it’s apparent that ‘wordvomit’ & bad-mouthing is inexcusable.
“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,” the producer wrote.
“These friends are like blood family to me… Thank you for calling me out when I’ve clearly made a mistake… many mistakes.”
