DL Hughley Gives the Final Word on Monique Drama


Over the Memorial Day weekend Mo'Nique went off on DL Hughley from the stage in Detroit after complaining that SHE was the headliner and should have gone on last [click here if you missed that].

DL explains what REALLY happened...

Yesterday during a segment on his radio show, DL claims Mo'Nique showed up late to the venue on purpose in an effort to subvert the comedy show line-up and when that didn't work, she went off. DL says he never saw Mo'Nique that day and she never expressed her displeasure with the line-up with him. 

DL also called out Mo'Nique for referring to her husband/manager as, 'Daddy,' when she's the one who pays him, saying that makes him her son. Finally DL blasted Mo'Nique for her disingenuous claims of being disruptive for 'her people.'

I found it funny that Monique didn't say anything about the promoter. The artist ain't got nothin to do with who headlines. Its all up to the promoter. Monique did try to blow up the Spot and like always she ends up with smoke comin out her ears and nose.

Did it make a difference for payment for each artist, if not stfu

Monique has delusions of grandeur. She has messed up her own brand. She's so sickening until it's unreal. I can't with this cow...

I think Monique's issue was a combination of a few things; when the headliner conflict came up, Monique was informed of D.L.'s refusal to go on if he wasn't acknowledged as the headliner and went last; Monique was still pissed about some things D.L. had said about her during the 'Precious' era & her lawsuit with Netflix; so it wasn't just about the headliner contract issue, it brought other issues to the surface as well. But my thing is, Monique should've handled the contract dispute with the promoted, privately; she should've stepped to D.L privately and had a conversation about things he had said about her in his stand-ups and how he handled the headliner conflict; but all this extra shit, playing out on social media, on both their parts, is childish and immature. And I wondered why no yt mainstream blogs really picked up the story; because it's childish Bf embarrassing to watch two 50 something year olds arguing over who's the real headliner on non-contractual agreement word documents. It's downright fucking embarrassing and D.L should've just ignored her and released a general statement. Not going tick for tack on social media, when the real issue is with the promoted. Smh.

Btw- Fuck Monique! What makes her think she should headline over DL Hughley? In what universe? That's what's so funny about this whole entire thing. She tried it though. LOL

I believe the final word is Did Monique Finish The Show As The Headliner? I have yet to hear someone answer this question. If she did in fact headline the show, she was right but if DL was the headliner, then the line-up was as he stated and the promoters are playing games with the both of them. Who actually closed the show?

I have never been so disgusted by DL in all of my life! How dare he weaponize the incest & sexual abuse Monique endured as a closer for an argument. Who even brings childhood rape up to win an argument? Them throwing dirty blows at each other as adults is different from him using child rape and incest to make a point. God he’s awful. Monique experienced incest and sexual assault at the hands of her brother, but DL called her Precious, who was raped and impregnated by her dad and the forced to perform oral on her mom. See, DL is messy. He did that because she questioned his name DL, and he went into gaslighting mode where he presented his case as if he is a pseudo psychologist, but he was really trying to destroy her for questioning his manhood. That was weak as hell. Some things should be off limits, and weaponizing child rape and incest is one of them. We have enough of a hard time getting children and adults to come forward with less than 25% of rapes ever being reported. Monique has a mouth on her but he could have struck back in so many other ways. His entire response was nothing more than gaslighting and deflection.

I commend DL for his final response too all this. Monique had a lingering bug up her wide asz. She used this format to verbally attack DL. This bish and all her problems with folks. That b.s. ain't comedy, go lay on a couch bish an let them help you discover you the fyckin problem. Bish 'If I was your cellmate'.

@12:26 Nobody cares about an Oscar when it has literally nothing to do with a lineup for a stand up comedy routine. She never used that Oscar to advance her career so why should anyone else? She thought everybody would bow down to her when she got nominated and it backfired and ruined her career.

@1:24, You commend a man for using incest and child rape to win an argument because of a blabber mouth woman that got under his skin? My God you are sick! If she called him fruity he could've called her a dagger, but to weaponize child rape is vile and so are you. What raised you? I hope you don't have daughters because you will let anything happen to them.

12:38 he wasn't talking about her being an abuse victim. It was about her being an abuser and horrible person. And her calling her husband who doesn't work except for her as daddy.

Her career is in the shit house because of her actions. Bottom line.

@1:42, HE SAID her entire life is a PRECIOUS biography, not the only work shes done, but her life is a Precious BIOGRAPHY.The entire movie was about incest and child rape. Monique is a victim of incest and child rape and he knows that. He wanted to cut deep. That is the entire premise of the movie. That's called GASLIGHTING.That's narcissism 101.

@1:42, He didn't say the mom, he said Precious. Black folks always weaponize sensitive information to hit back. This is why Black victims hate coming forward.

@1:36 Right, even Halle (who's considered Black in the eyes of white folks) said winning an Oscar did nothing for her career. Mind you, she still looks good and has been unproblematic since becoming a mother. Someone needs to tell Mo'Nique that she needs new management because this is a prime example of why some husbands need not be in control of their wife's career.

Halle wasn't honest if she said that because the Oscar moves you up in pay grade. She began to make around 20 million a film after her win. This is standard. Also, keep in mind she's a sex symbol. Viola makes more now too. You also have to have a powerful agency who will go to bat for you. It's who you know, not what you know. Denzel's Oscar raised his fee too. Black women just have it a bit harder.

Halle said, there's an assumption that when you win an Oscar that you no longer have to audition and hustle for roles; which, in her case, wasn't true. Halle still had to audition and hustle for every role that came after Oscar. Now, her fee may have jumped $2-$3 million, but she's definitely not making $20 million a picture. In fact, C list yt reality TV stars make more money than your standard B list black actors; Morris Chestnut, Shemar Moore etc. Black actors don't make a whole lot of money. I don't think Taraji saw a milli until after her nomination for Benjamin Button. And even then, she was averaging close to a million for the Z list TV projects that she did. In order to see that $10+million per film price tag you gotta have proven bankability with yt ppl; and there are only like 5 black ppl that have proven bankability: Halle, Denzel, Samuel L, Will Smith, and Kevin Hart.

@5:00, You are most certainly wrong because Halle was offered 20 million for the movie Bruised and that's a Netflix movie. Go look it up. No one said she didn't have to audition to see if she's the right fit.

I don’t care for DL at all but atp I hope they can just kiss and make up. They both been in the game too long for this.

Anonymous 10:51 AM has it EXACTLY right. If she was led to believe she was headlining but later found out she wasn't, that's an issue she needs to take up with HER OWN MANAGEMENT TEAM (aka her Manager/Daddy/Husband) and the PROMOTER. DL Hughley was just another performer. He doesn't have control over who the promoter CHOOSES to headline the show.

For the amount of time Monique has been in the industry, I'd expect her to understand that. But I'm starting to believe Monique isn't very intelligent. And when her incompetent Manager/Husband/Daddy screws up her business deals, he blame shifts to other people who did nothing wrong. And apparently Monique is so gullible, dumb and easily manipulated, she believes him.

Her Manager/Daddy/Husband probably told her she was the headliner to manipulate her into doing the show so he could get that $$$$. Then when she found out she wasn't the headliner, he told her it was DL Hughley's fault.

It's so sad that Monique has let her clearly incompetent husband completely ruin her career. Her comedy and acting career could have skyrocketed after she won that Oscar. Instead they're almost non-existent, due to mismanagement.
