'Precious' Star Mo'Nique

Weed, Illegal Immigrant

Accusations in Dog Crap Lawsuit

3/25/2012 6:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"Precious" star Mo'Nique's dog-stink legal battle with her landlords just got downright PERSONAL -- with the Mo's husband accusing the landlords of being alcoholics ... and them accusing him of smoking weed in the house.

TMZ broke the story -- Mo's Georgia landlords sued the Academy Award-winning actress and her husband Sidney Hicks last year, claiming they walked out on their rental contract, still owing $370,000 in unpaid rent.

Mo and Sid responded shortly after -- claiming there was a reason they reneged on the contract -- the house smelled like dog crap, wet dog, and urine ... the septic tank was an overflowing mess ... the security gate was broken ... the list goes on.

Now, new docs have been filed in the case, including a massive collection of emails between Sidney and one of the landlords named Alice -- in which 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. Lucky for the rest of us, the case is still pending in court -- which means more awesome documents might still be filed.

I never liked this girl. After that reality show ( which I can't even remember the name now) with all the trashy girls from flavor of love ... We were really able to see through her on that show and she's definitely a bad egg ...
She should go back to wherever she crawled out of ....

I personally Know Alice, the tenant. The house is located in Roswell, GA. Huge beautiful house. I have been there! This house is far from crappy! Monique just doesn't care to pay her damn bills. She realized she could not afford to live in luxury any longer, and makes up bogus excuses' as to why they need to be released from their Legal Binding contract. By doing so, her and her husband Sidney, found it appropriate to bash Alice and her home. This whole situation is because Monique can't afford this house, not because it is crappy. I personally can't wait for all e-mails to be released... Sidney is a terrible person and will hopefully get put in his place by our legal system. In closing, I just hope that one can realize that this house is not what they make it to be. Don't believe how nice it is? Schedule a visit to the magnificent property, see for you self!.

She wouldn't be the first actress to win an Oscar and still act like a piece of ghetto trash refusing to take responsibility for bad behavior...I'm talking to YOU Judi Dench!

Why must every topic become about race? It's so redundant and small minded. I don't like Monique. I think she is the stereotypical loud, obnoxious Black female...which affects all Black females in a negative way. I'm glad her show was cancelled because we've got enough Black women acting like bafoons on national TV right now. But this issue is about someone who didn't pay their rent....end of story.

There was obviously breach of contract here, but when does it become an issue on illegal immigration. LEAVE the hard working men/women out of your ****!

One of my close friends worked for Mo'Nique as her executive assistant. Yes, the landlords are correct and Sidney needs to stop lying. They always smoke weed in the house, hotel rooms, while on jobs, etc. He needs to stop with the comments and man up for once.

Nosy and Concerned    

First of all, IT MAKES NO SENSE to pay RENT ...$370,000 worth of rent and not own the place! Why not just buy your own house...ATL is CHEAP (especially in comparison to California) so that house must be palatial.

Secondly, if its that bad...MOVE! and handle that crap outside of the house...NOT WHILE ACCRUING more high paid rent...

the emails are hilarious! nonetheless, they should have just moved if it was that bad! I couldn't take those smells for more than 24 hours...and they were there for months! that does not make sense AT ALL to me...
