Comedian Richard Pryor Was Married a Whopping Seven Times

By

Richard Pryor may have died from a heart attack in 2005, but his legacy still lives on, as his comedy paved the way (and the styles) of future generations of comedians to come. Though Richard found mainstream success and made history by being the first black host ever on Saturday Night Live, he struggled with how to bridge the gap between what the public wanted to hear and what stories he wanted to tell. 

This struggle, and the demons he had from a traumatic childhood, led Richard to battle with drug abuse. It also took a toll on his personal life too. The comedian was married seven times, to five different women, and his marriages rarely lasted beyond one year.
