Richard Pryor WantedTo Pay Someone $1 Million To Kill Paul Mooney

 Richard Pryor was allegedly ready to put a hit out on Paul Mooney. They were once close friends but then things went left sometime during the shooting ‘JoJo Dancer’ back in 1986. Word on the Curb is Mooney “violated” his son, Richard Pryor Jr. According to Pryor’s former bodyguard Rashon Kahn he said when Richard Pryor found out he told him he was ready to pay $1 million for someone to kill Mooney. Considering Pryor’s drug use at the time, Rashon waited a few days before he confirmed Pryor’s claim but sure enough he was just as sure as he was before.

For years rumors have circulated that Paul Mooney was gay and would cruise Hollywood Blvd looking for sex but this is the first time he’s been accused of molesting a child. Mooney has denied having sex with Richard Pryor Jr allegations.
