Richard Pryor put a $1 million bounty on Paul Mooney‘s head after learning his good friend and fellow comedian had sex with Pryor Jr. … at least according to Pryor’s ex-bodyguard, but Mooney’s calling BS.
The bombshell accusation came from Rashon Kahn in an interview posted Monday by Comedy Hype. According to Kahn … Paul had sex with Richard Pryor Jr. when Jr. was in his 20s, and when Richard Sr. found out, he wanted Mooney dead.
Kahn claims Richard Sr. offered him $1 mil to kill Mooney or to find someone else to do it.
Paul Mooney’s publicist, Cassandra Williams, tells TMZ … “there is no validity to Rashon Kahn’s statement as it relates to Mr. Paul Mooney.”
In the clip … Kahn claims Richard and Paul’s “relationship became fragile because Paul Mooney had f****d Richard’s son by that time. He violated … Paul took advantage of the situation.”
Kahn says he thought Richard was just high when he first mentioned the bounty, so he double-checked with him the following week, and claims Richard made it clear he was serious.
It’s certainly relevant to mention Kahn is currently promoting an upcoming tell-all book.

Richard Pryor wanted to have Paul Mooney killed for sleeping with his son Richard Pryor Jr. According to Richard Pryor’s bodyguard Richard Pryor Jr was a little boy at the time. Wow. Wow.

TRUE-RP jr. confirmed this at the luncheon I gave after Richard’s funeral service–he announced it to the entire restaurant full of guests! I have it on tape.
