Richard Pryor Jr., the son of late comedian Richard Pryor appears to confirm that he was molested by his father's former friend, Paul Mooney.

"Whatever happened in my life, it happened when I was young. Way before the '80s," Pryor Jr. told TMZ when asked about the allegations against Mooney made by his late father's former bodyguard.

The TMZ reporter then asked him whether the relationship between the two of them was consensual, to which he replied:

"How can any relationship be consensual if I was a teenager?"

His response comes a day after Mooney released a statement denying all of the allegations made against him. Pryor's former bodyguard, Rashon Kahn, claimed that his former boss put a hit out on Mooney after he had sex with his young son. The hit was reportedly worth $1 million.

"From Jo Jo Dancer [1986] on their relationship became fragile because Paul Mooney had f*cked Richard's son by that time," Kahn said.
