Grier met comedian Richard Pryor through her relationship with Prinze. They did not begin dating until they were both cast in Greased Lightning. She helped Pryor learn to read and wanted to help him with his drug addiction. After six months sober, he relapsed. In her memoir Foxy: My Life in Three Acts, she revealed her sexual relationship with Pryor caused cocaine to enter her system. Her doctor informed her that she had a "buildup of cocaine residue" around her cervix and vagina. Grier wrote that her doctor warned her about what he termed the "epidemic". He asked if perhaps Pryor put cocaine on his penis to sustain his erection, to which she replied, "It's not like he has a pile of cocaine next to the bed and he dips his penis in it before we have sex. " The doctor then asked her if her mouth went numb while performing oral sex on Pryor, she said it did and he linked it the Novocaine-like effects of cocaine. Grier confronted Pryor about protecting her health, but he refused to use a condom. Pryor got engaged to another woman while he was dating Grier in 1977.
