Mo’Nique and Husband Battle With Landlords Over Unpaid Rent [Details]

Rucuss staffMarch 26, 2012

Oscar winner Mo’Nique and her husband Sidney Hicks are battling with landlords of a Georgia home who claim they owe more than $370,000 in unpaid rent.

The property owners sued Mo and Sidney last year after the couple allegedly walked out on their rental contract. TMZ reports that Monique and Hicks reneged on the contract because they were unsatisfied with the property that they claimed smelled of dog feces, wet dog and urine. They also claimed the home had a broken septic tank and security gate.

Now, new court documents show a string of nasty emails between Hicks and a landlord named Alice. The landlord taunts Mo’nique for her canceled “The Monique Show” program and later accuses the couple of smoking marijuana in the home.

TMZ reports:

Sidney claims the landlords should be “embarrassed” by the state of the home.

Alice responds, mocking Sidney over Mo’Nique’s canceled talk show — writing, “We do understand that your business has been greatly affected by the cancellation of your weekly talk show. However we do not want the publicity and heartache/hardship for either of us.”

Sidney shoots back, claiming Alice “has a poor man’s mentality … you talk tough when you are owed but run when you owe.”

And here’s where it gets vicious — Alice refers to the stank in the house, saying, “Maybe the illegal substances you use in our home (i.e. WEED) has weakened your sense of smell.”

Sidney responds, “The only illegal greenery was with the illegal immigrant you brought on our premises to cut down the trees … Maybe the overuse of alcohol has affected you and your husband’s judgment.”

It goes back and forth like that for 136 PAGES.

The case is still pending in court.
