Mo'Nique

Dog Crap Lawsuit's Ruining

My Oscar-Winning Reputation

4/7/2012 9:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0406_monique_01
"Precious" star Mo'Nique is completely humiliated by the sordid accusations that have surfaced in her landlord lawsuit -- dog feces, weed, illegal immigrants -- and now, she wants the entire lawsuit sealed from the prying eyes of the public.

Mo filed legal docs in the case last week -- claiming she's an "Oscar-winning actress, television host, and otherwise public figure" ... and the bitter lawsuit's crushing her good rep.

TMZ broke the story -- a nasty legal battle has been raging between Mo and her landlords since last year, after she and her husband Sidney Hicks walked out on their rental contract ... because the house allegedly smells like dog poop and urine. But then it got personal.

The landlords fired back with their own legal docs last month, including several emails in which Mo's hubby Sidney accuses them of being alcoholics and using illegal workers. The landlords accuse Sidney of smoking weed in the house.

Now, Mo says the lawsuit has become a massive embarrassment -- and her landlords are capitalizing on the national media attention by throwing fuel on the humiliating fire.

Mo insists the personal email exchanges filed by her landlords had NOTHING to do with the case -- and will only serve to “unnecessarily harass, embarrass, and cause public ridicule if the record is not sealed."

Mo'Nique says leaving the case open constitutes a violation of her privacy -- and the judge must have agreeed ... because until further notice, the case has been sealed.

Mo'nique is full of mo'crap...as for her reputation, it was ruined long ago...she is egotistacal, and in general a poor actor. Like her eating cravings, she can't control her dog either. Buck up Mo' and realize you are being held accountable...see at HomeTown Buffet Mo'...and a quick Happy Easter shout out to all the christians...the homos and lesbos don't care about easter,so to them I say " you look fab-u-luz "

SHE WAS SO ANNOYING THAT BET TV CANNED HER, THE SHOW, AND HER FAT A$$ DESPITE IT BEING THE NUMBER SHOW ON THE NETWORK! THAT TELLS A LOT OF THIS FAT CHIC. AGREE WITH THE LANDLORD. CASE CLOSED. #TRUTH!!

I believe Mo'nique! I once rented a house
and the smell was so wretched that after 4 months
I had to break the lease and move out.

No need to worry about your reputation with me Mo. I haven't a clue who you are. Those award shows are way to boring to watch. So once again your rep is safe with me.
