Legal battles with landlords never tend to go well, particularly for the tenants, but the fight Mo’Nique, her husband Sidney, and one of their landlord’s, Alice, are involved in is just hitting all below the belt.
Last year, Mo’Nique’s landlord filed a lawsuit against her saying she owed $370,000 in unpaid rent for bailing on the two-year, $20,000/month lease agreement she signed for the Georgia property in March 2011. The couple immediately shot back with a suit of their own, demanding they be let out of their contract because the home smelled of dog feces, wet dog, and urine, plus there was an overflowing septic tank. They also said they had a verbal agreement to be let out of the contract with 60 days notice because of all the problems, and accused the landlord of backtracking. Well now they’re doing a lot more than that.
A new set of documents has been filed in the case, including a string of nasty emails sent between the parties. Sidney said the landlord should be embarrassed by the home she was leasing, and Alice said the couple is just embarrassed that they can’t afford the rent, writing.
