D.L. Hughley is doubling down on his recent comments saying Mo’Nique is a “liar” and everywhere goes, “s–t starts.”

The Original Kings of Comedy star addressed his back-and-forth with Mo’Nique when a TMZ photographer approached him on a New York City street while he signed autographs.

In the video posted online Friday, Feb. 16, the camerawoman asked Hughley if he’d spoken to the Precious star since he took a swipe at her earlier this month.

Hughley smirked at the photographer and kept moving. The woman then asked if he’d be willing to go on Shannon Sharpe’s “Club Shay Shay” podcast to work things out with Mo’Nique.

“I would never go on ‘Club Shay Shay’ and no, I haven’t spoken to Mo’Nique. I think we’ve said all we need to say,” Hughley responded.

The comedian’s answer shouldn’t come as a surprise, considering he recently said “‘Club Shay Shay’ is getting messier and messier.”

The TMZ photographer didn’t give up, and asked Hughley if he regretted any of his comments.

“Not one thing,” he answered. He also shot down the idea of a reconciliation with Mo’Nique.

“I don’t know why there would need to be a reconciliation. She said what she said, and I said what I said. We’re grown people, we don’t have to be in the same space,” Hughley told the photog.

D.L. and Mo’Nique have exchanged words multiple times on social media.

Their latest exchange started when The Parkers star called him out during her viral “Club Shay Shay” interview posted on YouTube Feb. 7.

Mo’Nique said her feud with Hughley started when she appeared on his radio show years ago. Hughley wasn’t there at the time. But Mo’Nique  said his staff asked her to play a game of “Would You Rather.” Mo’Nique agreed, but said she was insulted when someone asked a sexually-charged question about her husband, Sidney Hicks.

She told Sharpe she called Hughley to discuss the matter, but he was dismissive and responded, “Well, that’s how we do it.”

The actress claimed Hughley has been bad-mouthing her around Hollywood since then.

“[He said] I was bitter. I was dangerous with what I was doing,” Mo’Nique claimed. “This went on through the years.”

Hughley immediately responded on Instagram, by saying Mo’Nique wasn’t being truthful.

“Mo’Nique’s a liar,” Hughley said. “When Mo’Nique did call me, I heard her complaints, I listened to her, and I pulled the segment. So if I had been as dismissive as she alleges I was, that segment would’ve aired. It didn’t, because I respected her wishes.”

He accused Mo’Nique of constantly starting “s–t” and said she’s estranged from everyone, including her extended family and her son because “nobody f–ks” with her except her husband/business manager.

A week later, Mo’Nique’s estranged son Shalon Jackson went public with his thought’s on the comedian’s “Club Shay Shay” interview, particularly when she told Sharpe she’s taken “accountability” for her fractured relationship with her son, adding, “Now it’s up to” him to reach out.

Jackson, who is also a stand-up comedian, fired back at his mom on TikTok by suggesting she was acting for the cameras.

“Neither one of us has had the desire to reach out to the other in a very long time, and I don’t think that either one of us anticipates that feeling ever returning,” he said in the video. “I’m tired of hearing my mother’s ‘truths.’ Newsflash, standing in your truth doesn’t make you noble.”

Jackson added that he felt unwanted as a child after his mom left to pursue a comedy career and fame — which she’s admitted in past interviews.

“To this very day, my mother has never expressed to me, when, if, or ever she became interested in me as her son,” he said. “That did lead me down a path of questioning my self-worth and struggling to understand the value of a mother in a child’s life.”

Mo’Nique and her husband responded to Jackson with their own video on Instagram the next day.

Hicks did most of the talking and said, “Those who are parents that have raised their children into adulthood know that there comes a time and a place in which they determine their own decisions, their own path.”

He also suggested Jackson has a “slave’s mentality.”
