Mo'Nique Has A Few Words For Lee Daniels Telling Her To ‘Shut Up’; Responds To Netflix Deal Rumors

The ongoing drama between Mo'Nique and Lee Daniels (with Tyler Perry and Oprah) continues —with no real desire for solutions.

The Comedienne/Actress took to the gram after footage surfaced of the Empire Creator telling her to “Shut Up” hit the internet. 

There’s also a rumor going around online saying Mo’Nique scored herself a $10 million deal with Netflix after previously blasting them.

For those keeping score, Mo’Nique came forward to ask the public to boycott Netflix for gender and color bias.

In her original speech, Mo’Nique says she was offered a $500k deal for a comedy special from the streaming giant. Her comedian counterparts, Amy Schumer was offered $11 million, while Chris Rock and Dave Chappelle were offered $20 million for their comedy specials.


According to one of the “Queens of Comedy” herself, the rumored $10 million deal with Netflix isn’t true as she also has a few words for Lee Daniels. 



As she stands on a balcony in a video captioned “NETFLIX DEAL. Get it straight from me. ‘Lee Daniels behave’ LOVE YALL FOR REAL.”, she begins her message:

“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 hoax. That is not true my babies.”

She added, “ Now just like that lie can become the truth within 24hours – just like they can make something like that up – they can something up like your girl is difficult and demanding.”

She concludes, 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.


Last year, Mo'Nique made headlines by blasting her former peers, including Oprah, Lee Daniels and Tyler Perry.

"I was not 'black-balled', I was 'white-balled' by some Black [expletive] who have no balls, the Baltimore native told a shocked Apollo Theater crowd.

“So thank you, Mr. Lee Daniels. Thank you, Mr. Tyler Perry. Thank you, Ms. Oprah Winfrey. No, baby, I wasn’t blackballed… It would kill me not to say the real [ish],” she said. “You are not paying me equally. You are not treating me fairly. Y’all could suck my [expletive] if I had one.”


During the sit-down chat on TMZ's Raq Rants, Lee Daniels first touched on recently being publicly confronted by Damon for a reason many felt was justified and also addressed Mo’Nique’s claims.

The Roc-A-Fella mogul said that Lee promised to try to get him on as an EP for a Richard Pryor biopic, along with 5 percent on backend profits, but Lee bailed on the project and didn't deliver on his promises to Dame. So, he decided to sue Lee for $5 million.

"I'm going to work out something for him to get it because I am in a position now to get it to him... I don't know if I would be successful if it weren't for him."


While all seems to be well between Lee and Damon, he explained that he feels very differently about Mo'Nique, whom he directed in Precious.

“I think people are confusing Damon Dash [situation] with Mo’Nique [situation] . Damon Dash is completely different from Mo’Nique. Mo’Nique…I worked hard for her to get that job…and for her to badmouth myself, Tyler Perry and Oprah is disrespectful and wrong. She’s wrong. She’s out-of-pocket…Like, she needs to shut up.”

Lee Daniels wants no questions remaining on the table after he explains what went down with Mo’Nique. Head to Raq Rants on YouTube. #tmz #leedaniels @rocktopics #raqrants #monique #youtube
