Lee Daniels Says Mo'Nique Is Out of Pocket


Last week Lee Daniels promised to pay Damon Dash $2 million after Damon publicly shamed Lee over a movie investment gone wrong [click here if you missed that].

Lee does NOT extend that same courtesy to Mo'Nique...

For years Mo'Nique has been accusing Lee Daniels, Oprah Winfrey and Tyler Perry of blackballing her for refusing to promote the film "Precious" after she was nominated for [and won] an Academy Award [click here if you missed that].

Now Lee Daniels tells Raq Rants
“I fought hard for her to get that job. I wanted her to get that job. And she was paid her money.”
“She was paid the money for the budget that we had. And for her to badmouth myself and Tyler and Oprah is disrespectful and it’s wrong. She’s out of pocket. She’s really wrong.”
“I respect her [as an] 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 speak about Oprah and myself and Tyler is disrespectful.”

First of all, why is he saying all of this now? He couldn’t speak on it when Mo’ was saying her piece last year, so why dredge this up now? Is he trying to deflect from the fact he owes Dame $2milli + interest????

Also, this is really strange wording to me: “I respect her [as an] 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 …”

Given the Golden Globe? Didn’t she EARN it???
And they trading souls back & forth now??? Ummmmkay... 😕

LEE DOES NOT OWE DAME. Dame made an investment in his movie and the movie flopped. Now that Lee has had major success, Dame thinks his money should be recouped because he helped finance Lee's film, when no one else would. Same thing with Monique. Should he have done right by her once the money started to pour in? Of course he should. Was he OBLIGATED? No he was not.

That's was the dumb statement of the day! You invest to make a profit back now where you would lose if it's an OOO meaning public trade or a Gift....nobody is going to give 2 million with out any return. Yes it may have flopped but Lee has recouped money thru other indeavors...he didn't only invest in the film he was helping a friend out. The mentality you have is why Black people don't do business with each other.

@8:51 - ummm, how does Lee Daniels not owe Dame, when Lee Daniels admitted out of his mouth that Dame “deserves his money” and he intends to pay him?

Lee Daniels said: “This black man gave me money when nobody, not Disney, not Sony, not TriStar, not Paramount, not Warner Brothers for a film, he did it. And so for that, you know, he deserves his money. And so I’m gonna work out something for him because I am in the position now to get it to him, so I’m gonna get it to him because I think that it’s the right thing to do.”

@8:51 He still aint shit! He had to have his business aired and be publically humiliated in order to agree to give Dame what he's owed. That's some n*gga shit!

From what I understand the 2million was given to make Shadowboxer & The Woodsman both critically acclaimed but not hits. That got the attention of studios. Precious was still made n a shoestring budget. Lee owes Dame for a small of his success. Has nothing to with Monique. She was paid for her work

8:51 is CORRECT. Investments are risky. I invest in stocks and expect to make a profit. Using your logic, if the company doesn't do well, I should get my money back. What was the AGREEMENT between Dame and Lee? That's the bottom line! It's nice that Lee feels he owes Dame, but he's not OBLIGATED to give him a dime if their agreement does not specify he must. Your last sentence is beyond ignorant. People of all races conduct business with Black people successfully everyday because they both know enough to use WRITTEN contracts, no matter the relationship, or the dollar amount.
