Veteran comedian Mo’Nique Hicks is speaking out and breaking down numbers about her recent lawsuit. The actress filed a lawsuit against Paramount and CBS for unpaid royalties from her popular sitcom ‘The Parkers. The breach-of-contract lawsuit alleges the defendants artificially depressed the show’s profitability to “retain millions that would otherwise be contractually due” to Mo’Nique’s production company.
Now Mo’Nique is breaking down the numbers. In a message shared on social media, Mo’nique and her husband allege that “The Parkers” cost $70 million to produce and made $700 million over the years, but she is being told the series is more than $1 billion in debt.“Don’t pay us any more, but don’t pay us any less.”
