Steve Harvey shares his thoughts on the ongoing feud between D.L. Hughley and Mo’Nique stemming from the comedic stage when Mo’Nique traded insults towards the fellow comedians. Harvey ain’t having it and insists, “I’m not your problem.”
The Celebrity Family Feud host said, “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.” He addressed the comments on The Steve Harvey Morning Show. “And you know what? Anyone who knows me, who really knows me, can’t even make that statement.”
He then said that the mission of stand-up comedy is entertainment and gave his input on what went wrong, insinuating her management team is to blame.
“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.”
Mo’Nique and D.L. Hughley shared receipts of what really happened, and both believe they were supposed to be headlining the show. Mo’Nique took to Instagram live earlier this week to reveal what happened between her and Hughley, explaining their falling out. All from an interview on his show where the interviewer wanted to play “Would You Rather” with former The Parkers actor. The question was inappropriate, asking if she would rather have her husband sleep with Lee Daniels with a condom or Karrine Steffans without a condom.
Harvey believes the audience wouldn’t have noticed who the headliner was supposed to be if the comedians didn’t say anything.
