Mo’Nique dismisses Winfrey war

The heavyweight star was alleged to have fallen out with Winfrey, her co-producer Tyler Perry and director Lee Daniels after reportedly demanding thousands of dollars to walk the red carpet at the recent Toronto Film Festival in Canada and the New York Film Festival last month (Oct09).

Daniels has since come to Mo’Nique’s defence, insisting she showed no signs of “diva” behaviour, but new reports have since blamed the actress’ manager husband, Sidney Hicks, for making the cash demands, allegedly infuriating Winfrey.

A source tells Us Weekly magazine, “He’s impossible to work with and was the one demanding the payments. She deserves an Academy Award and he’s screwing it up for her.”

But Mo’Nique, who plays an abusive mother in the gritty drama, is keen to clear up allegations she’s at war with Winfrey.

Her representative says, “There is no feud. Only mutual respect and admiration.”
