Tyler Perry, Lee Daniels and Oprah Winfrey aren’t the only folks Mo’Nique hasn’t spoken to in years. According to Gabourey Sidibe, she and Mo’Nique also haven’t spoken in years … four to be exact.
HipHollywood caught up with Sidibe at the Essence Women In Hollywood Awards where she said the two have just lost touch over the years. “We just don’t bump into each other, I’m sure if we saw each other it would be all love.”
Mo’Nique and Sidibe shared the screen some 9 years ago in Lee Daniels’ Precious. Since Mo’Nique has been at odds with Daniels, Winfrey and Perry (who produced the film) claiming they had her blackballed in Hollywood because she wouldn’t promote the film internationally.
Back in 2015 Sidibe expressed her disdain for all the bad publicity Precious was getting as a result of Mo’Nique and Daniel’s feud. “It’s sad to see a project like Precious, that was made with such love, be dragged through the mud by selfishness and lies,” she said on Twitter.
In recent weeks Mo’Nique has continued to blame the trio for tarnishing her name and keeping her out of work for the past 8 years.
Sidibe was mum on Mo’s recent comments but seemed hopeful the group will eventually work out their differences, cracking us a half smile at the suggestion.
Meanwhile Oprah told HipHollywood
she has no desire to hash out her differences with Mo’Nique. “I don’t focus on negativity. I don’t bring it into my sphere,” she said while promoting A Wrinkle In Time.
