Mo’Nique and Lee Daniels are continuing to fight. As you may know, Mo’Nique claimed that Mr. Daniels blackballed her back in 2015, after they worked together on the set of his 2009 film, Precious.
The actress won an Oscar for her performance that year, but since then, hasn’t found work in the scene. Recently, Mo’Nique doubled down on the allegations, claiming that Oprah Winfrey and Tyler Perry blackballed her as well.
However, the actress is merely digging a hole for herself which is getting deeper and deeper. Hollywood is a place of collaboration, connections, and the appearence of mutual respect. It’s one of the reasons why actors rarely bad mouth each other, even if she don’t like each other that much.
During an interview with the tabloid magazine, TMZ, Lee Daniels responded to her allegations and said she needed “to shut up.” And considering Mo’Nique’s nature, she wasn’t about to let that go, and subsequently responded on Instagram.
In her video message, she said, “Lee Daniels, you shut up!” The disgraced actor went to claim that she recently was in the process of receiving a $10 million deal with Netflix.
Daniels spoke about Mo’Nique on Monday, telling the tabloid magazine that he was allied with her for a long time, and put a lot of work into getting roles for her.
According to Daniels, he “fought hard for her to get that job.” Mo’Nique won the Oscar for best-supporting actress for her appearence in the movie, Precious, as an abusive mother.
However, according to the Hollywood rumors, Mo’Nique is impossible to work with, unprofessional, and whenever something doesn’t go her way, she talks horribly about those whom with she has worked.
Daniels echoed this sentiment, stating, “For her to bad-mouth me, Tyler, and Oprah, is disrespectful and it’s wrong.” The director added that she was totally out of line.
