The contract dispute between Mo’Nique and D.L. Hughley took another turn with the Precious star apologizing to Hughley’s family for comments she made about his daughter’s sexual assault, but criticizing Hughley again.

Mo’Nique issued the apology while performing at the Duke Energy Center of Performing Arts in Raleigh, North Carolina on Saturday, June 18, according to The Shade Room.

“I’d like to consider myself a woman of honor. So I’ve got to do something right now publicly, that I did publicly,” Mo’Nique said. “And when I f–k something up, I’ve got to fix it up. So I’m going to take care of that right now before I go any motherf–king further. To D.L. Hughley’s family, I want to publicly apologize if I hurt anyone’s feelings. I want to publicly apologize to his wife, to his babies, if I hurt their feelings because that was never my goddamn intention. I never meant to hurt their feelings.”

Moments later she threw more shade at Hughley.

“Oh, but that ni–a D.L., I meant every motherf–ing thing I said,” she added.

The war of words between the two comics started over who was the true headliner when they shared the same stage at Detroit’s Fox Theatre on May 28. Mo’Nique told fans she was supposed to headline the show until Hughley joined the lineup.

“The motherf–ing contract says that a b–ch is the headliner. The headliner. That’s what the motherf–ing contract says,” she told fans at the show. “Mo’Nique is to be the last (expletive) person on the (expletive) stage. She is the headliner.”

She then called Hughley a “b–ch,” the N-word and a “coon” in front of the audience.

It didn’t take long for The Original Kings of Comedy star to fire back. He shared a picture of the Precious actress on Instagram, along with a caption essentially calling her a monster.

“Apparently, the role you played in PRECIOUS turned out to be an autobiography,” he wrote.

Mo’Nique responded by attacking Hughley and an interview he previously did revealing his daughter was sexually assaulted by a family friend. At the time, Hughley said: “My youngest daughter said something happened to her and because it was somebody I liked, I didn’t believe her.”

Mo’Nique brought the interview up in an Instagram post and included the video of Hughley discussing his daughter.

“I find it funny that DL will call out ICE CUBE, KANYE, RIZZA ISLAM, ANGELA STANTON, MYSELF ETC., but he won’t call out the name of the person that violated his daughter,” she wrote.

Hughley’s oldest daughter Ryan Nicole Shepard responded to Mo’Nique in a post shared by her dad and said The Parkers star is “disgusting” and has “no moral compass.”
