Quincy Jones has a lot to say in a new interview with New York Magazine, but we’re not sure how much of it’s true. For one thing, the 84-year-old producer says he knows who really killed President John F. Kennedy.

Jones says he dated President Trump’s daughter Ivanka — when he was 72 and she was 24.
