Lee Daniels is sick and tired of Mo’Nique dragging his name through the mud and is ready to let MoMo have it!
According to @PageSix, Tyler sat down for an exclusive interview with “Raq Rants” and spoke about Mo’Nique’s claim that he, Tyler Perry and Oprah Winfrey allegedly blackballed her from Hollywood and paid her unfairly for her work on the film “Precious.”
“I fought hard for her to get that job. I wanted her to get that job. And she was paid her money,” Daniels said. “She was paid the money for the budget that we had, and for her to badmouth myself, Tyler and Oprah is disrespectful and it’s wrong. She’s out of pocket. She’s really wrong.”
He continued, “I respect her [as an] actor because she gave me her soul, but I have her my soul. And for that she was given the Golden Globe and the Academy Awaard… and it breaks my heart that she feels that we blackballed her. No one blackballed her. Mo’Nique black-balled herself. And for her continue to speak about Oprah and myself and Tyler is disrespectful.”
Hopefully they all work it out and get back to making great movies!
