'Precious' Star Mo'Nique

Sues Landlord

My House Smells Like Dog Crap!

Academy Award-winning "Precious" actress Mo'Nique is suing her landlords in Georgia -- demanding she be let out of her $22,000-a-month rental contract ...because her house smells like dog feces.

Mo'Nique filed the papers in Fulton County in response to her landlords' lawsuit -- which claims the actress bailed on her two-year lease agreement, signed in March, and owes $370,000 in unpaid rent and other charges.

But Mo says it's all crap ... literally ... insisting there's a damn good reason she's walking out on the rental contract -- the house stinks of dog feces, wet dog, and urine (of unknown origin) ... not to mention an overflowing septic tank.

But it doesn't end there -- according to Mo'Nique, the house also had a bad mold problem and the security gate was busted.

Mo'Nique claims she struck a verbal agreement with the landlords, allowing her to renege on her contract with 60 days notice because of all the problems -- but Mo' claims her landlords aren't living up to their word.

It's unclear if Mo'Nique has since moved out. Calls to both sides have not been returned.

TMZ plz stop reporting news about black celebs because the racist comments are too much. Just stick with the white celebs since obviously they are perfect, have no money issues, don't commit crimes, and have no weight issues.

Bloody h**l, the house smelled of dog faeces and urine and had mold and a busted security gate but she's only pissed about it now? Allow me to guess, Mo'nique has a dog.

Know someone who needs thicker hair? Go to Ebay and get "Simplyshelli" hair serum. You add it into any shampoo. It makes your hair super thick. Seriously.

Fuck Celebrities    

$22k a month for a rental in GEORGIA?

This woman is an idiot and will be broke in no time... there aren't too many movie roles for morbidly obese people.

She is not an Academy Award winning actress. She was nominated for an Academy Award but she did not win.
Everytime I see a picture of her- I vomit a little in my mouth.
