In a twist that no one saw coming, Quincy Jones has claimed in a new interview that he once dated Ivanka Trump.
After calling his former acquaintance Donald Trump a “megalomaniac, narcissistic” and “crazy motherf–ker” in a sit-down with Vulture, the legendary music producer added as an aside, “I used to date Ivanka, you know.”
Vulture’s David Marchese spoke for all of us when he asked: “Wait, really?”
Jones went on to claim that he and Ivanka dated 12 years ago, after she asked Tommy Hilfiger to set up a dinner for them. Jones is now 84 and Ivanka is 36. Twelve years ago, they would have been 72 and 24, respectively.
Jones recalls telling Hilfiger at the time, “No problem. She’s a fine motherf–ker.”
“She had the most beautiful legs I ever saw in my life,” Jones continued. “Wrong father, though.”

Ivanka’s team did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.
But folks on Twitter had questions. Lots of questions.
“Quincy Jones divulging that he used to date Ivanka Trump is a TWIST I definitely did not see coming,” tweeted one user. “This interview is wild!”
So, um, just to be clear: Quincy Jones says that when he was 72, and Ivanka Trump was 24, they dated?
I just don’t even know where to get started with this. https://t.co/zeGU22q3Ea

Quincy Jones says he “dated” Ivanka Trump when he was in his mid-70’s and she was in her mid-twenties. But as a lady who has had invitations to dinner misread: just because he thought it was a date doesn’t mean she did

I don’t know what circle of hell it is where you deny that Quincy Jones dated Ivanka Trump, but that’s where Sarah Sanders will be today

There is so much in this one Quincy Jones interview, but I will say 1) I bet him having to sue the Michael Jackson estate ticked him off, 2) wow at him dating Ivanka Trump and I wonder if Sweet Potato Saddam responds. https://t.co/eu2klB8zpG

Some tweeters questioned whether Ivanka was already dating husband Jared Kushner 12 years ago, in 2006. But Business Insider reported that the couple met in 2007 at a networking lunch arranged by Trump’s longtime business partner, who thought they could do deals together. Trump called their union “the best deal we ever made!”
