Mo'nique is being accused of being a regular user of marijuana and cocaine, as well as dealing cocaine and evading her taxes. The accusations are made by an ex-boyfriend and detailed in this week's National Enquirer. That is what I love about the Enquirer. No matter the list you are on whether it be A-D, if they find something good, they are all over it.
I actually think this story is more interesting than whether Heath Ledger used cocaine at a party two years ago. Who gives a crap whether he did or not. It was two years ago, after he got crushed at the SAGs, and he was having some alone time for the first time in 3 months.
So back to Mo'nique. Her ex-boyfriend is Marvin Dawson who she broke up with way back in 2003. She broke up with him because of his criminal record that included theft, gun and drug possession charges. Why? Because she didn't know, or because he was ruining her little party?
Dawson says Mo'nique is a big hypocrite and that she is guilty of far more serious crimes than he ever was. “Mo'nique threatened my life. She said if I ever told anyone about her lifestyle, she'd hire someone to kill me.”
Dawson claims he is planning to write a book about his life with the star.
Mo'nique's lawyer had this to say about the accusations. “Marvin Dawson has no credibility – he's a nut. If she was dealing in kilos of cocaine, the DEA (drugs enforcement agency) should have her on their suspects list. See if they have anything on her. That's dumb.”
No one said she was dealing kilos of cocaine. Does her attorney know something we don't? It didn't sound to me like Mo'nique was buying kilos, and then selling them to people on the street. I got the feeling from reading it that she has a really good connection and that she sells to her friends, and to people she runs into , and maybe isn't as careful about her record keeping on these transactions as she should be. Somehow I can't imagine Mo'nique meeting some guy and buying a couple kilos at a time. But, I can see her buying enough to make a few thousand every week.
