Lee Daniels and Jahil Fisher

Director Lee Daniels and his significant other Jahil Fisher attended the 2016 BET Honors in Washington DC. Daniels credited R&B legend Patti LaBelle with helping him kick his drug habit. “I called her up one night at three o’clock in the morning. (I was) babbling, babbling, babbling. I was high as a kite," Daniels recalled. "She said, ‘Lee, do you know Jesus?’” Daniels addressed Ms. LaBelle personally, saying: “La, that I’m even here with you tonight, when you were responsible for me getting off drugs, I love you."

  • iWasteTime

    Push through Fanny!!
    Tristan if you were 5 years older!!

  • T’acheItEzee15

    Well, I wish I could say everyone looks nice, but uhm..I'm not going to name names. Tristan Wilds is on his grown man status.

  • countrygal

    All the women look amazing!! I love Monica's get-up. She looks like a baby doll.

  • harley_quinn2.0

    Everyone looks great. Janelle is beautiful. Love her ??

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    I love Janelle Monae, such a pretty girl and I like her music vibe. Monica and Toni's dresses...ugh. Giselle is pretty, but she has such a funky attitude to me. Kyemha, I like your hair, but not so much your dress this time. Lee Daniel's boyfriends hair...**snickers**

  • Cricket404

    Everyone looks fab, even Toni sucking in her stomach. Gizelle is a Creole by way of Louisiana and Texas, she reminds me of Mrs. Tina, Beyonce Gizelle Knowles mama.

  • PhenomenalWomanThatIsMe

    Are those plugs??

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    Agreed. She looks like a younger Tina.

  • harley_quinn2.0

    How old is he? Tell me at least 25.

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    His hair? Dunno, but that flip...that is the style you get so you can constantly, dramatically flip your hair back. Amusing to me.

  • iWasteTime

    I think he is 25 or 26.
    But I'm ....I just need him to be 30 ... lmao!

  • Vonn

    Lee's boyfriend reminds me of Leon playing Little Richard with that damn hair. Wooo

  • iWasteTime

    She said, ‘Lee, do you know Jesus?’”
    She didn't. She smooth cussed your azz out .. lol

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    Ha! YES!!!!!! And now that I think about it, Leon stayed playing a famous singer, Lil Richard, David Ruffin. If he'd have played Eddie Kane Jr., he'd have the trifecta! LOL!

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    Nah, you can be a super cougar!

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    You know she did! She cussed him first and then led him to Christ. LOL!

  • iWasteTime

    there levels to it ?!!?

  • Vonn

    Listen, I've been crying laughing since she posted this pic. Today is a good day.

  • harley_quinn2.0

    He's old enough to do whatever in my book??

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    Always! If you're 40 and you're messing with someone who's 30, then you're technically a cougar, but only a base level cougar, but if you're 40 and he's 20-25, then you're a super cougar! LOL! Don't try and figure out my logic, just nod your head and laugh! LOL!!!!

  • Kanyade

    I love seeing "The Wire" alumnus doing great things. Tristan is such a cutie and looks sharp in his suit.

  • Milani

  • It’s Taurus Season

    I get it. She looks good still. But damn Toni. Nobody else is showing anything hun. Boderline inappropriate. IDK.

  • stav

    Her skin is fair , and they both have light eyes , those would be the only similarities. They look nothing alike.

  • SpillyNillie

    Everyone looks goodt! Toni's dress is everyTHANG...Janelle is cute as always...Monica's face is BEAT...Tristin drives me Wild!

    Murning Ya'll!!

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Tristan looks very handsome in that suit. I love a man in a well tailored suit.

    Fantasia looks nice and I like the bottom half of Khemas dress.

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    Exactly what I was thinking. Maybe for another occasion. The Grammys or a music award show maybe.

  • nicelyput32


  • Blaque Mahogany

    Which ones do you like?

  • It’s Taurus Season

    This is what I was thinking too. Its a beautiful dress. Just...kinda out of place perhaps.

  • It’s Taurus Season

    I dont think Micah just has a drug problem. I think its some bipolar disorder/various mental issues in there and they go hand in hand. A LOT of Bipolar people abuse drugs and alcohol really bad.

  • T3

    Gizelle looks like a young Vanessa Williams to me. She's a very pretty lady.
