Mo’Nique & Husband Leak Secretly Recorded Conversation Of Them Hitting Tyler Perry With Reads & Receipts

The drama between Mo'Nique and her former peers, namely Oprah, Tyler Perry and Lee Daniels, has died down a bit. 

If you remember, Mo'Nique accused the latter of ruining her career and getting her "black balled" in Hollywood last year.

But don’t get too comfortable, because the drama has surfaced again.

Mo'Nique is back on the scene and she is gunning for Tyler. It seems that she has released a secretly-recorded conversation she and her husband had with him.


In the audio recordings, which were exclusively obtained by Rolling Out, Tyler admits that the "difficult to work with" reputation that Mo'Nique has since been assigned from outside sources was unfair. He even went on to say that he would compensate the actress additionally for her role in Precious—which Mo'Nique says never came to fruition.

"This is Tyler Perry talking," he said. "I'm gonna call and find out what money is coming in from Precious, and I'm going to send that to you. I'm going to send that over to you. Whatever it is, I'm gonna send it to you."

Tyler also agreed that Mo'Nique should have been paid to promote the film overseas, a point that she has been heavily criticized for standing by throughout this entire situation.

The tone of the chat seemed to shift a bit, when the actress alluded to Tyler "going Hollywood”; she claimed she would rather speak with Madea, the character he is most famously known for, than the new "Tyler Perry."


"You're talking in Tyler Perry language," she stated in a scolding tone, as Tyler chuckled. "I would ask you to let Mo'Nique talk to Madea, because when you start talking in Tyler Perry language, brother, you talk like you don't get it. Right, [expletive], you gotta laugh at it, 'cause, let me tell you, Tyler, when I watch your movies, I dig Madea. You know why I dig her? You know why I dig her, Tyler?... Because that [expletive] is real to her gut and she don't give a [expletive] how it come out."

"You see, when you stepped away from Madea and you became Tyler Perry the billionaire, this is the conversation we're having, saying, 'What do you want me to do?'" she went on, while her husband cheered her on in the background. "'What do you want me to say?' You're the brother that slept in your car and you needed [expletive] to fight for you to get you up out the goddamn car."

“This is Tyler Perry talking. I’m gonna call and find out what money is coming in from Precious, and I’m going to send that to you. I’m going to send that over to you.  Whatever it is, I’m gonna send it to you,” he replied.

"I don't want you to feel, not one day, that you were mistreated, or that you were treated unfairly," Tyler then shared. "Now, if that means that that's what I need to do [send her money], you do that, and take it from a place of love."

Perry also admitted Mo'Nique was unfairly seen as "difficult" in Hollywood, but when the couple asked him to speak out against the negativity, he was reluctant.

By the time the audio cut off, it was clear nothing was resolved between the two parties.
