“Hey My Loves” Mo’Nique Responds After Lee Daniels Slams Her & Reacts To New Netflix Deal Talk
Well, we knew it was only a matter of time before Oscar winning actress, Mo’Nique, sounded off about what director, Lee Daniels, said about her recently. We also knew that Mo’ and Lee are both very outspoken individuals, so the public back n’ forth that is now occurring between them was damn near inevitable. Get y’all popcorn ready and read on…

On Monday (July 2), Lee Daniels stated, in an interview with TMZ, that Mo’Nique -and I quote- “needs to shut up” about the claims that he, Oprah Winfrey, and Tyler Perry blackballed her in Hollywood. Even though, he previously told her that she was blackballed, he said he had nothing to do with it, she just ‘didn’t play the game right’ and possibly pissed off some big wigs in the industry with her ‘attitude.’
Mo’Nique on the other hand, says Lee’s claims are an outright lie and that they were angry with her for not shouting out Lee during her Oscar acceptance speech and for not promoting the film, “Precious,” for free overseas, after only being paid $50K for the role.
Now, she’s taken to social media to politely strike back at Lee, but while at it, she decided to put two rumors in check. As we all know, MoNique has previously bashed Netflix for gender bias and racial bias, after she says she was offered pennies in comparison to her White and/or male counterparts. Fast forward to today and somehow a viral rumor has circulated that Mo’ signed a new multimillion dollar Netflix deal.
She captioned her video with this message:
“NETFLIX DEAL. Get it straight from me. “Lee Daniels behave” LOVE YALL FOR REAL.”
Here’s what she said in her vid’:
“Hey my loves. So I gotta address this $10 million Netflix deal. What’s a word that rhymes with jokes, but starts with an ‘H?’ Y’all got it, it’s a god*amn hoax. That is not true my babies. Now, just like that lie can become the truth within 24 hours…just like they can make something like that up, they can make something up, like your girl is ‘difficult and demanding,’ she said, referring to what Lee Daniels claimed. “So this is what I’ll say to y’all. The truth only goes away if we stop talking and y’all know I ain’t gon’ stop talking. And Lee Daniels, you ‘shut up.'”

In case y’all missed our prior report, Lee went off on Mo’Nique, and said that people shouldn’t get his confession about doing Damon Dash dirty, confused with Mo’s claims that he did her dirty too. This came after Mo’ leaked the recording of Tyler Perry indirectly admitting to her that she was done wrong.
Lee Daniels:”I think that people are confusing the Damon Dash [situation] with the Mo’Nique [situation]. The Damon Dash [situation] is completely different from Mo’Nique. …She was paid the money for the budget that we had and for her to bad mouth myself, and Tyler, and Oprah, is disrespectful and it’s wrong. SHE’S wrong, she’s out of pocket. … I respect her actor because she gave me her soul, but I gave her my soul. And for that she was given the…Golden Globe and the Academy Award. And it breaks my heart that she feels that we blackballed her. No one blackballed her. Mo’Nique blackballed her and for her to CONTINUE to talk about Oprah, and myself, and Tyler is disrespectful.”
“I don’t understand her motive…I don’t get it, I really don’t. … We were really down with Mo.’ To get that performance form her, she had to bare her soul to me, I had to bare my soul to her. That was like making love, without having sex, you understand? … There’s LEVELS to that. And for her to think…that I could do anything?!! … I don’t know, it ain’t even worth a conversation…Like, she needs to SHUT UP.”
And the saga continues.
