Mo'Nique swallowed her pride and apologized to fellow comedian D.L. Hughley for disrespecting him and his family.

It all started when Mo'Nique called out D.L. following a contract dispute over a comedy show in Detroit. Mo'Nique was under the impression that she was a co-headliner with D.L.

The dispute went viral after Mo'Nique launched into a 10-minute rant onstage.

“N***a, your name is D.L., what the f**k does it stand for? How far are you bending over, n***a?" She went on to call out D.L. for not supporting his daughter when she revealed she was molested.

D.L. responded to Monique's rant on his popular radio show.

"Now I know what Tyler Perry knows, I know what Lee Daniels knows, I know what Oprah knows, I know what Steve Harvey knows, I know what Charlamagne Tha God knows, I know what Netflix knows," he said.

Mo'Nique apologized during an appearance at an event over the weekend. The comedian said, "I like to consider myself a woman of honor. So, I've got to do something right now, publicly, that I did publicly." She added, "To D.L. Hughley's family, I want to publicly apologize if I've hurt anyone's feelings because that was not my intention."

The apology comes after Netflix settled a discrimination lawsuit with Mo'Nique. Th terms of the settlement were not disclosed publicly.

D.L. Hughley addressed his dispute with comedienne Mo'Nique who accused him of contractual shenanigans recently.

Mo'Nique was upset that she was removed as headliner in favor of D.L. during a comedy show in Detroit last weekend.

She called D.L. a down-low brother and other disrespect in a 10-minute rant on stage at The Comedy Explosion at the Fox Theater in Detroit.

"That's what the motherf**king contract says," she told the audience. "'Mo'Nique is to be the last motherf**king person on the got d*mn stage. She is the headliner.' That's what I signed the contract for."
 

 
Another clip showed Mo'Nique suggesting D.L. is on the D.L. She also expressed her sympathy for his wife.

After some back and forth, D.L. provided receipts in the form of his contract which confirmed he was headliner.

Then Mo'Nique produced her contract, which was actually drawn up by her husband, Sidney Hicks.

A frustrated D.L. said he originally turned down the opportunity to do comedy gigs with Mo'Nique, but he changed his mind when others told him that things were different with her.

He decided it would be wrong not to give Mo'Nique a chance because she had never crossed him.

"Now I know what Tyler Perry knows, I know what Lee Daniels knows, I know what Oprah knows, I know what Steve Harvey knows, I know what Charlamagne Tha God knows, I know what Netflix knows," he said on his radio show on Tuesday. "Saying yes to Mo'Nique is an occupational hazard."

He accused Mo'Nique of delaying the start of her set hoping the audience would get restless. "Mo'Nique actually felt that she had merit... She knew she had to get onstage or she would in breach of contract."

He wondered why Mo'Nique got on stage to drag him, his wife, Stevie Harvey, and his support dog if she thought she had a legitimate dispute.

"What does Steve Harvey have to do with your contract? What does my wife have to do with your contract?" he said.

D.L. accused Mo'Nique of "trying to weaponize Black femininity." You proceeded to assault my sexuality. You have the temerity to assault someone's sexuality - a man's sexuality - given who you lay next to?" he said, referring to rumors that her husband (pictured) is bisexual.

D.L. Hughley produced his contract to prove he was scheduled to headline The Comedy Explosion at the Fox Theater in Detroit, Michigan.

Fellow comedian Mo'Nique was furious because she believed she was the headliner at the same show. She ranted and raved about the unfairness after she was removed as headliner hours before the show began.

She claimed removing her as headliner conflicted with her signed contract.

Mo'Nique called Hughley a "b*tch" and she hinted that he likes it from the back.
 

 
Hughley responded by urging Mo'Nique to check the order of appearance on the ticket stubs.

"All you have to do is check the order of names on the ticket stub from last night and you'll see who's confused," he said.

He added that he was warned repeatedly not to work with Mo'Nique.

"Against my better judgment, over the objections of my team and 4 other occasions where I said NO, I decided to take a chance and work with Monique."

He then said Mo'Nique has a habit of blaming everyone else for her problems.

"Oprah was the problem, Tyler Perry was the problem, Charlamagne was the problem, Steve Harvey was the problem, Lee Daniels was the problem, Netflix was the problem... Now it's MY turn. At some point it can't be everyone else, IT'S YOU!! Lesson learned."

Mo'Nique hopped in the comments and demanded that Hughley produce his contract. So he did.

Then Hughley asked Mo'Nique to produce her signed contract. So she did - sort of.

Hughley noted that the contract was drawn up by a company called Hicks Media, Inc., which happens to be the same company owned by Mo'Nique's husband, Sidney Hicks, whom she married in 2006.

He wrote: "HICK'S MEDIA INC?? HOLD UP!! THAT'S YOU!!! YOU REALLLY SHOWING EVERYONE A CONTRACT YOU SUBMITTED FROM YOUR OWN COMPANY..."

Mo'Nique went to war with fellow comedian D.L. Hughley over a contract dispute.

She went off on D.L. at The Comedy Explosion featuring D.L. Hughley at the Fox Theater in Detroit, Michigan.

While on stage, she called out D.L., saying she was supposed to co-headline the event with D.L., but she was removed as headliner hours before the show began, which she says conflicted with her signed contract.

"That's what the motherf**king contract says," she told the audience. "'Mo'Nique is to be the last motherf**king person on the got d*mn stage. She is the headliner.' That's what I signed the contract for."
 

 
Another clip showed Mo'Nique suggesting D.L. is on the D.L. She also expressed her sympathy for his wife.

"What kind of real n*gga would ever attack a got d*mned black woman? Ni**a, your name is D.L., what the f**k does it stand for? How far are you bending over, n***a? On the DL."

Hughley responded to Mo'Nique's tirade. He said Mo'Nique was "confused" about her order of appearance on the bill.

"All you have to do is check the order of names on the ticket stub from last night and you'll see who's confused," he said.

He added:

"Against my better judgment, over the objections of my team and 4 other occasions where I said NO, I decided to take a chance and work with Monique."

He then said Mo'Nique has a habit of blaming everyone else for her problems.

"Oprah was the problem, Tyler Perry was the problem, Charlamagne was the problem, Steve Harvey was the problem, Lee Daniels was the problem, Netflix was the problem... Now it's MY turn. At some point it can't be everyone else, IT'S YOU!! Lesson learned."

Mo'Nique responded to Hughley in the comments.

"THE FACT THAT YOU POINT THE [PEOPLE] TO THE TICKET STUBS FOR THE ORDER OF THE NAMES VERSUS TO YOUR CONTRACT IMPLIES THAT YOU DON'T HAVE A CONTRACT THAT SHOWS YOU ARE THE HEADLINER LIKE I DO. EITHER SHOW YOUR CONTRACT OR SHUT UP! STOP MESSING WITH PEOPLE WHO HAVE NEVER MESSED WITH YOU & CONSIDERED YOU A COMRADE IN COMEDY. BUT I THANK YOU DL BECAUSE YOUR THE REASON WHY I FIGHT FOR MY PEOPLE LIKE I DO. ANYTIME YOU OPENED FOR THE KINGS OF COMEDY, AND I WAS THE HEADLINER FOR THE QUEENS OF COMEDY & YOU THINK YOU SHOULD CLOSE THE SHOW OVER ME IS AN EXAMPLE OF THE BIAS THAT BLACK WOMEN HAVE TO DEAL WITH IN THIS BUSINESS. I WON’T EVEN DISCUSS AWARDS."
