Recently we shared what seemed like a resolve to the Monique D.L. Hughley contract feud but Steve Harvey is now addressing what Monique said about him during her rant.
According to Complex during a Steve Harvey Morning Show discussion on Wednesday, he and his panel broached the topic after playing a clip of comments Mo’Nique made about Hughley and Harvey at the dispute-spurring show in question.
“Let me just open by saying I could care less than a…about what you think about me because clearly—clearly—I’m not your problem,” Harvey said Wednesday, as heard starting around the 30-minute mark in the video below. “And you know what? Anyone who knows me, who really knows me, can’t even make that statement.”
Later, Harvey reflected on what he believes “the mission” of all stand-up shows is: entertainment, first and foremost. He also did some theorizing as to what may have transpired in this particular instance to have resulted in the confusion over each performer’s headlining status.
“Her management, whoever he is, simply stated ‘I got this gig, you co-headline.’ I promise you that’s what was told. … And that was incorrect information because D.L. put that contract online,” Harvey said. “He was 100 percent headlining. Co-headlining affects the money. If you’re co-headlining, you’re gonna get the same cash.”
Regardless, Harvey added, those in the audience would not have been aware of any such disagreement. As shown below, Mo’Nique and Hughley have both since shared paperwork related to the May 28 show in Detroit on social media.
Wednesday, Mo’Nique shared an hour-long video on Instagram.
In addition to Hughley, Harvey is also mentioned in the video as Mo’Nique pushes back against a “false narrative” from Hughley about her stand-up career.
“I’ve never stopped being a stand-up comedian, baby,” she said near the end of the video. “I’ve been out there on that road doing my thing the whole time, so stop trying to put a false narrative out there—that’s Steve Harvey’s big word—stop trying to put a false narrative out there.”
Elsewhere in the same video, Mo’Nique also disputed Hughley’s claims of the audience not enjoying her time on stage on the night in question. Instead, according to Mo’Nique, the audience gave her standing ovations both upon entry and upon exit from the stage.
“Just your night was bad, D.L.,” Mo’Nique said, later adding that Hughley did not “meet the challenge” of that audience.
See the full video below. Mo’Nique is joined in the hour-long discussion by her husband Sidney Hicks.
Update: Monique just shared a clip of D.L. Hughley, in an attempt to explain why she said “how can DL’s wife suck the d**k of a coward”, On Instagram she wrote:
(This is based upon DL’s own words that you just heard.) @realdlhughley When I said “how can DL’s wife suck the d**k of a coward”, this is what I meant. When my husband & I say we have to fight for the little girls coming up behind us & u see DL didn’t believe his own daughter over a friend, because he seemingly likes his friend more than he LOVED HIS OWN DAUGHTER & didn’t want to be bothered by the inconvenient truth. This highlights why the BLACK WOMEN isn’t believed when she publicly speaks about her trauma. What does the BLACK WOMEN & his (DL’s ) BLACK WIFE have coming. Watch who stands with this man & your looking at the same ones who will sit down, when you our sisters are being attacked. I find it funny that DL will call out
ICE CUBE, KANYE, RIZZA ISLAM, ANGELA STANTON, MYSELF ETC., but he won’t call out the name of the person that violated his daughter.
THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS FOR THE PEOPLE WHO SAID I JUST NEED TO LET THINGS GO!
P.S. Thank you AMEER S.
WE LOVE US 4 REAL
SIDNEY HICKS & MONIQUE HICKS
We arent sure what this has to do with the contract, but it most definitely got personal!
