Music mogul Master P is continuing to explain his side of events regarding allegations from comedian Jess Hilarious. The 31-year-old alleges that the 55-year-old did not fully compensate her for appearing in the film I Got The Hook-Up 2
Jess Hilarious Made The Initial Allegation On The Breakfast Club
Hilarious appeared as a guest host on Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club last week. And seemingly explained that Master P only paid her for one of two scenes that she filmed for the comedy movie, as previously reported by The Shade Room.
That man will talk a good game to you, like even with me, I Got The Hook-Up, I’m still owed some bread for that, I’m not gonna lie to you… I did two scenes. He thought you used one scene, you don’t gotta pay for both of them. No, I stayed there 13 hours to do two scenes.
Charlamagne Tha God, a cohost on the show, followed up by further questioning the comedian. And asked if people are supposed to get paid per movie or per scene.
Hilarious explained that since the movie was a conjunction of skits put together, she should have been paid per skit. And added that she charges $15,000 per skit.
Master P Responded To Jess Hilarious’ Allegations Briefly Online
Master P briefly addressed Jess Hilarious in a series of now-deleted posts shared on Instagram, as reported by The Shade Room.
I love @jesshilarious_official and I know she was just cracking jokes because she signed her contract and got paid what she was owed for I Got The Hook Up 2 but if she tryna squeeze me for another 10k she got that.
In an additional now-deleted post, Master P further shared his thoughts.
For the cowards hiding behind their computers enforcing fake news, I do have @jesshilarious_official contract from 5 years ago for I Got The Hook Up 2 and the copy of the check that was cashed and paid. She was joking about a second check that was never in her contract. That’s the narrative they ran with for clickbait and fake headlines. Thank God for receipts!
Master P Further Explains His Stance On The Breakfast Club
Master P appeared as a guest on The Breakfast Club Monday morning. And explained that he stopped by the radio show to “educate” people.
I feel like… we are destroying each other by not thinking — we just talking. And I feel like — I’m a humble man, I’m a God-fearing man, I come from the streets, I changed my life. I want to show people how to grow up and change and do what I’ve done. And I feel like we don’t value relationships no more. All we value is views, TikToks, likes, followers — But what about… when you’re burning those bridges and you gotta come back on that bridge?…
The 55-year-old went on to explain that people should be thankful for the opportunities that they receive. And if any issues do arise between individuals that are doing business together, those issues should be addressed solely between the involved parties.
Additionally, Master P went on to address Jess Hilarious’ allegations, calling it a “misunderstanding” and “miscommunication.”
We in a production thing, right? We don’t pay for the talent…
The 55-year-old later went on to question why the topic has become such a large conversation.
But why is we talking about that? Let’s be honest, I gave you an opportunity — why is we talking about that? I’m not even in the music business no more, I’m not in the entertainment business. That’s why I’m saying, so you take that and turn it into clicks… It’s all a miscommunication…
Master P asked listeners to change their “thoughts and their patterns.” And instead, pose the question of how can they help one another.
Roommates, what are your thoughts about this?
