Regardless of the backlash Mo’Nique endured for more than 13 years, the actor is finally making a comeback in a major way and many fans believe 50 Cent played a vital role in promoting Lee Daniels to apologize. The rapper posted a series of photos of Mo’Nique on Instagram and encouraged everyone to join him in supporting her. “I Gotta get @therealmoworldwide back in the pocket, we only suppose to cancel s*** that ain’t good for the culture. we need you to WIN again now MONIQUE.”
Not too long after, Daniels appeared to have a change of heart. During her “Mo’Nique and Friends: April Fools Day with The Queen of Comedy” event on Staten Island, fans were left stunned after she brought out “The Paperboy” director on stage as a special guest. “I am so sorry for hurting you in any way that I did,” Daniels said in an emotional video captured at the show. “Y’all, and she was my best friend — my best friend. Y’all think that ‘Precious’ was just … That was God working, through both of us.” He added, “And we’re gonna f****** do it again!”
Mo’Nique has replaced Octavia Spencer in Daniels’ Netflix thriller “Demon House” and the two will work together again after more than a decade at odds. Spencer had to pull out because of scheduling conflicts with her other projects.
