Gabourey Sidibe is refusing to lose weight according to a report published by The National Enquirer on Monday.

The publication said that a newly slimmed down Mo'Nique was attempting to get her Precious co-star to shed pounds from her 350 pound frame. The Oscar winner allegedly wanted the 30-year-old to feel the same renewal on life she has been experiencing in recent months.

Mo'Nique went from weighing a high of 300 pounds to less than 220. She has shared pictures of her weight loss on Twitter and has spoken out about her new figure and what it's done for her.

"Mo'Nique's weight loss journey has been slow but steady, and the results have completely changed her outlook on life," a source said.

The source went on to say that Mo'Nique believed she could convince Sidibe to follow in her footsteps. Mo'Nique sympathized with being a large woman in Hollywood and wanted to offer the younger actress help on how to battle the bulge.

"Mo'Nique knows how hard it is to be heavy, and since she and Gabby have discussed their battle of the bulge, she thought she could reach out," the source said.

Mo'Nique allegedly offered to perform dual workouts with Sidibe over Skype, but the overture was rejected.

"Gabby loves Mo'Nique and thinks it's great that she's losing weight, but she's just not interested in dieting at this point in her life," the source said. "She says she knows she has to do something, but she'll do it in her own time and on her own terms."
