Mo’Nique earlier this month apologized for remarks she made in reference to the alleged sexual assault of Hughley’s daughter; She later came under public criticism via social media from his eldest daughter, Ryan Nicole Shepherd.

Performing at the Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts in Raleigh, North Carolina on June 19, she said, “I like to think of myself as a woman of honor, so I have to do something in public that I do in public and when I do *** it, I have to fix it. So, I’ll take care of that now – to the D.L. Hughley family, I want to publicly apologize if I hurt anyone’s feelings.

I want to publicly apologize to his wife and children if I hurt their feelings because that was never… my intention. I never meant to hurt their feelings.

Hughley said of Mo’Nique, “You just get so many breaths in your life and I refuse to use another one on someone like that”

Asked about the apology on Wednesday, Hegley said: ‘I haven’t heard anything, I don’t listen to it – not at all.

I can tell you this: I work, my family is intact, I just came from providing a benefit to the people affected by the tragedy in Buffalo. I go home and see my granddaughter.

Heggley said he “has no words or breath for a person like this,” drawing the line in attacks on his family.

The feud between the two initially started when Mo’Nique Hughley tore on stage during The Comedy Explosion, an event that they both did, at Detroit’s Fox Theater on May 28.

On her set, Mo’Nique said she specifically signed up for the show as the headline, and accused Hughley of threatening not to perform if he had to go ahead with her.

“The contract – the main contract says ab**** is the main – the main – let me say it again, the main one,” Mo’Nique said. That’s what the mother contract says, that Mo’Nique be the last person to have sex with the mother on stage…that’s what I sign, I’m over 30 in this and I don’t open the door to ‘Nobody.’

Hegley, in response, shared a frame of Mo'Nique from the 2009 movie Precious in an Instagram post addressing her engagement

She continued: ‘The contract said the headline, the contract said the headline, the contract said the headline, but… D.L. Hughley turned to ab**** and said, ‘I won’t perform if I do that… I won’t go out if I do that’.. So when I leave this mother, headline left.

Mo’Nique has indicated that she has a ‘history’ with Hughley, saying he has publicly criticized her in the past professionally without any provocation.

In response, Heigley cited Mo’Nique’s previous business controversies, naming a group of people and companies whose problems Mo’Nique has expressed in the past to illustrate its history of professional grievances.

“Oprah was the problem, Tyler Perry was the problem, Charlemagne was the problem, Steve Harvey was the problem, Lee Daniels was the problem, Netflix was the problem…Now it’s my turn,” Hegley said. “At some point it couldn’t be anyone else, it’s you!! I learned my lesson…I wonder who’s next…”

Hegley referenced Mo’Nique’s Academy Award-winning performance in the 2009 film Precious, as she played the mercurial, abusive, and manipulative mother of the titular character.

“Obviously the role I played in a precious movie was autobiographical,” he said.
