Paul Mooney's Twins Defend Dad after Bodyguard Claimed Comedian Molested Richard Pryor's Son

Paul Mooney's son slams Richard Pryor Jr.'s sexual abuse claims against his "ailing" and "old" dad, saying if it were true they would have come out with the claims years ago. 

Mooney's sons, Daryl and Dwayne Mooney, came forward to deny the sexual abuse claims against their father, also updating people about his current health condition. According to the two comedians, claims made by a bodyguard should not be taken as hard evidence that something indeed happened years ago.

Slamming Kahn for Defamation

"Coming out with some stuff like that when Paul is ailing, after he’s old. If the [expletive] was hot, you should have told that [expletive] years ago. Richard Pryor Jr. ain’t said nothing about it so why you gon tell somebody’s business?" he asked.

The twins slammed Rashon Kahn's claims, saying he decided to butcher their father's name and decided not to mention all the things that Richard Pryor Sr. did.

The Mooney twins claimed that at one time when his son was only 13-years-old, Richard Pryor Sr. hired a 26-year-old prostitute to take his virginity.  

The Controversial Allegations

Allegations of Paul Mooney sexually harassing Richard Pryor's son three decades ago came after Rashon Kahn, Richard's former bodyguard, wrote about it in his book. According to Kahn, the abuse led to Richard Sr. threatening to put a $1 million hit on Mooney's head. However, they never acted on the idea. 

A Faulty Timeline

According to Kahn, in 1986, there was already a strained relationship between Pryor and Mooney. This accusation was highly contested though because Paul and Richard Sr. would still hang out with one another in the '90s.

Mooney's representatives add that if their client did indeed do such thing, it would have been impossible for Richard Pryor Sr. to still be friends with him two decades after.
