Quincy Jones as 22 girlfriends

Quincy Jones has 22 girlfriends.

The 84-year-old producer - who has six daughters and a son, Jolie with first wife Jeri Caldwell, Martina and his only boy, Quincy III, with second spouse Ulla Andersson, Kidada and Rashida with third wife Peggy Lipton, Rachel from a brief fling with Carol Reynolds, and Kenya with former long-term partner Nastassja Kinski - is romantically involved with a string of women around the world and they're all aware of one another.

He said: "I got 22 girlfriends...Hell yeah. Everywhere. Cape Town. Cairo. Stockholm--she's coming in next week. Brazil--Belo Horizonte, São Paulo, and Rio. Shanghai--got a great girl over there from Shanghai, man. Cairo, whew."

Asked if they know about one another, he added: "Yeah, I don't lie. And it's amazing--women get it, man. Don't you ever forget they're 13 years smarter than we are. Don't you ever forget it."

But the 'Thriller' producer insists he'd never date anyone his own age and wishes he could keep the "fat and old" away from his house.

Asked if he'd go out with anyone his own age, he told America's GQ magazine: "Hell no! You see me with an 84-year-old woman? Are you crazy?

"Why not??? Why? For what, man? There's nothing...there's no upside. You gotta be kidding. I got me some technology out there that keep fat and old away from here. Buzzes if they're too old.

"But you'd be surprised.... These women, the young ones, are aggressive now. Oh my God, they're fearless, man. All over the world."

Quincy admitted there are some restrictions on the ages of the women he dates.

He said: "Well, my daughters gave me new numbers, because they kept saying, 'Dad, you can't go out with girls younger than us.' I said, 'Y'all are not young anymore....' So the new numbers are 28 to 42. They gave them to me."

Despite his own advancing years, the music legend insists he still has a desire for sex.

Asked if the desire had gone after he reached a certain age, he said: "Not to me. Hell no. Never. Uh-uh."

Quincy thinks his punishment for his womanising ways is to have beautiful daughters.

He said: "When you've been a dog all your life, God gives you beautiful daughters and you have to suffer. I love 'em so much. They're here all the time."

But he has no regrets about his life or behaviour.

He said: "Je ne regrette rien de tout. I don't regret s**t."
