Earlier this year Richard Pryor's former bodyguard made some explosive allegations. He claimed that the late great comedy legend once put out a "hit" out on fellow comedian Paul Mooney.

The bodyguard claims that Richard was upset with Paul, because he allegedly seduced Richard's then underage son Richard Pryor Jr

Richard Jr is now speaking out about the bodyguard's claim.

In a new interview, Richard Pryor Jr disclosed that he received an apology from his father's former bodyguard - after the bodyguard claimed that Richard Jr was sexually abused by Paul Mooney.

While Richard Jr doesn't call Paul Mooney by name, he acknowledges that something inappropriate happed to him when he was underage - and refers to himself as a victim.

Richard claims that he's upset with the bodyguard, not because the story was a lie - but because it was "not his story to tell." 

Richard Jr seems unwilling to name Paul as his accuser, or to clear him. 

Junior says he has not talked to Paul, his sons who staunchly denied the reports, or anyone from his camp since the allegations were made public.
