Mo’Nique and Husband Continue Battle With Landlords Over Unpaid Rent, Deny Claims of Smoking Marijuana
Oscar winner Mo’Nique and her husband are continuing to battle with landlords of a Georgia home who claim they owe more than $300,000 in unpaid rent.
Mo and her hubby, Sidney Hicks, are embroiled in a court battle with property owners who say they’re behind $360,000 on an agreed $22,000-a-month rental contract.
TMZ reports that Monique and Hicks have admitted to not paying the money because they’re unsatisfied with the property that they claim smells of dog feces, wet dog and urine.
Additionally, they claim that the home has a broken septic tank and security gate.
Now, new court documents show a string of nasty emails between Hicks and a landlord named Alice.
In it, Alice taunts Mo’nique for her canceled “The Monique Show” program and later accuses the couple of smoking marijuana in the home.
“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 [...]
“Maybe the illegal substances you use in our home (i.e., weed) has weakened your sense of smell.”
Hicks later fired back saying,
“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.”
The case is still pending in court.
