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.
“[Chicago mobster Sam] Giancana,” Jones says. “The connection was there between Sinatra and the Mafia and Kennedy. Joe Kennedy — he was a bad man — he came to Frank to have him talk to Giancana about getting votes.”

Jones says he dated President Trump’s daughter Ivanka — when he was 72 and she was 24.
“Yes, sir. Twelve years ago. Tommy Hilfiger, who was working with my daughter Kidada, said, ‘Ivanka wants to have dinner with you.’ I said, ‘No problem. She’s a fine (expletive.)’ She had the most beautiful legs I ever saw in my life. Wrong father, though.”
And then there’s this: Jones says Marlon Brando’s sexual conquests included some famous men — including James Baldwin, Richard Pryor, and Marvin Gaye.
In a separate interview a few weeks ago, Quincy revealed he has 22 girlfriends and they all know each other.
“Everywhere. Cape Town. Cairo. Stockholm — she’s coming in next week. Brazil — Belo Horizonte, São Paulo, and Rio. Shanghai — got a great girl over there from Shanghai, man. Cairo, whew.”
