Since I was checking on Keshia Knight Pulliam’s tax issues earlier this week, I decided to get an update on Mo’Nique’s situation for the first time since 2016.

Based on the Department of Treasury records, the comedienne and Duluth resident now owes even more money.

In 2016, she had a tax lien filed against her for the years ending 2013 and 2014 for a total of $389,904.98. Last fall, the federal government said she was late paying her taxes in 2015 as well to the tune of $170,720.74.

So the Oscar-winning actress now owes the U.S. government $560,625.72.

That $500,000 she recently rejected from Netflix might have come in handy, eh?

By the way, I didn’t break this story. Several websites posted about this last fall and I just missed it.

So this blogger on digging into Mo'Nique's private financial situation found it right to use it to make light of Mo'Nique's issue with Netflix. What is wrong with you despicable people? It is well known that Black Female Entertainers are being lowballed by Hollywood and instead of using this tax information to argue why it is important for Black Female Entertainers to get a fair pay as their White counterparts, RODNEY HO sees it right to say this is why Mo'Nique should have taken Netflix's insulting $500K. It is clear in RODNEY HO's mind, Black women are unworthy of more and should be happy with the less they are getting because they deserve to forever be in a desperate position. Well, Rodney Ho, Mo'Nique knows her worth and I stand with her!
