Mo'Nique Sued for Unpaid Rent


Academy Award winning actress, Mo'Nique, has been largely M.I.A. since walking away from her successful talk show back in July [click here if you missed that] and according to a new lawsuit filed against her, that's not all she walked away from...

Mo'Nique's former landlord in Atlanta is suing her for $370,000 in unpaid rent and other charges after Mo'Nique broke the 2 year lease she signed back in March.

But  there's two sides to every story, right?

Mo'Nique counter sued insisting she be let out of her $22,000 a month rental contract because the house is unfit, describing it as smelling like dog feces, wet dog and urine; plus there's a mold problem, an overflowing septic tank and the security gate is broken. Mo'Nique also claims there was a verbal agreement that she could break the lease with 60 Days notice because of the issues.

Now it's up to a judge to decide.

Why after all of this time in her career and fame would she be renting anything. When you have the money pay chit off..

Umm Snitch she didnt walk away from that show, it was cancelled!

She needs her ample ass kicked for paying rent on anything let alone $ 22 k a month. She repeatedly makes poor decisions in her life and obviously has no common sense.

Open Marriage = This down low mooch was my last option. I'll show him and not pay for his booty palace anymore. The smell she complains of is the odor from his past lovers.

Why did not she wait and find a smart business minded white man to marry and to help with her business affairs.

I never watched her talk show. She's too obnoxious. Anyways I'm sure if she cleans after her pets, the apartment wouldn't smell like dog.

Dude, 22 thou a MONTH??? Who the f*ck does that?? I don't care how filthy rich you are (and I don't Monique falls into that category), if you're going to drop THAT kinda money, monthly, then why not actually BUY something??

Sorry, you will never convince me that's logical.

@ 9:58 are you in her bank account? do you know the balance? do you know all her avenues of income/investments/etc? STFU.


IF she can afford to rent 22k per month home. let her be. she can AFFORD IT. Just because yall broke asses cant afford it doesnt mean she cant. It would of been stupid of her to buy a home in a place she knew shes was only going to stay temporarily in, and then try to sell a home in this shitty market. Yall can stfu. You can clearly tell who is broke and doesnt know real estate.

A lot of you need to go back to school. Asking why she rents anything, proves that you failed to pay attention during English lessons. Your 'comprehension' skills are in shambles!
Monique rents in Atlanta, Georgia because that is not her main city/ state of residence. She had to move to that city to shoot her television show!
Would you buy a house, if you knew that you were only in that city a couple of months a year on business?

Some women who are big stay in mental abusive relationships. She needs talk therapy so she can get rid of the bastard.

I wouldn't be surprised if he controlled the finances.

Um I don't care what her pockets look like, 22k a month in ATLANTA? I could see NYC, but ATL? Fraud capital of the US?

@ 11:05

The hood and ghettos you live in dont cost anything near to 22k, not even 1k, so I can see why youre so surprised. Venture into the higher class areas of ATL, and you'll see 22k is quite the norm.

Anonymous said...

@10:52 The fact that she's being sued for over 300K is proof that she can't afford 22K per month. That's a lot of missed payments. And what's more stupid paying someone past due rent of over 300K or owning a comfortable home for less than that price? You don't have to have money or know real estate to see that 22K is a ridiculous amount to pay for rent.

Anonymous said...

I understand renting especially if its not going to be permanent. I just can't wrap my head around 22k a month. Call me a broke ass all you want, Im sure there was something cheaper available.

Anonymous said...

Well she didn't spend money on her family cause she doesn't even fool with them. He husband is making a fool of her. She might do have low self esteem.

$22K month in ATL. Wow. I see gorgeous houses in ATL for $400-500. She could have paid off for the house in 2 years. No wonder stars like these end up filing for bankruptcy. I loved Monique in The Parkers but she was too loud and out on her show. I wondered how it lasted as long as it did.

Anonymous said...

I'LL BET that the show was paying the rent. When it ended, that ended too. If she could afford it she wouldn't be getting sued imo. She also has the option of subletting it to someone else. But i'll also bet for that $$$ you can BUY a mansion WITH equity in the ATL. I know someone who did it personally, and they aint banking like Mo. SMH.

Was the house stank with dog poop, urine, mold, septic tank, etc when she agreed to rent it? She nasty for agreeing to rent a health hazzard

RENT!?? Monique don't own her home, GTFOH!!

Monique is always trying to scam somebody out of stuff, always want perks and deals, fat bitch
wasn't shit in L.A and I see she still ain't shit in Atlanta.

People if you pay 22,000 for RENT, why is it you don't own a home??????

BTW if Monique have a DOG then we all know where the smell is coming from.

MONIQUE IS JUST TRYING TO GET OUT OF THE CONTRACT, BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY, SCAM!!!!

Smart rich white men are looking for dimes, models, Naomi, Jessica White, Garcelle Beauvais, not fat, obnoxious women like Monique.
white men ain't checking for fat white girls, never mind a pig like Monique.

@ 11:30 Are you death, dumb, blind, or all 3? She was in ATL TEMPORARILY so why would she buy a home there, when shes only going to be there TEMPORARILY, & when her main residence is in Maryland? For what reason? To please you?Would your broke ass pay for it? I think not.

If you're going to go away to college in a different state, would you buy a home there, when you KNOW that you're only there temporarily during the school year, and after you graduate you going back home?Does it make sense? Okay then, dumbass.

But lets be real. Its obvious you've never been to college.

22k For rent when you can get a decent home in a great community fro less then $15oK... Stupid idiot!!!

You CAN own homes in more than one place. Why couldn't she buy another home in Atlanta? Jeez folks!

@11:38 Okay, we get it! You're a die hard fan of Mo'Cheap. You're the only one defending her. Yes, we know all those posts are from the same person.

My ex bought a second home where he was working temporarily. It made sense. And he rented it when he wasn't there anymore. (should have stayed with him I know...)

Monique's post oscar career is interesting. She didn't try to parlay that win into bigger endeavors like J-Hud keeps trying to. She could have at least try to move that show to a bigger network like wendy has.

Then again,maybe she is afraid of success, some folks are.

IT is funny to see her Post Oscar Career. Seems that all that foolishness of not showing up, showing out, and being a pain in the ass didn't work in her favor. Perhaps her and "open marriage" Sydney need to re-think their approach. Or this won't be the last lawsuit that she is served with.

Well, I doubt 11:30 is "death" since they just posted and all- nice irony there, though. And regarless of whether or not people knew the details of her living/location situation, the main point is this clown was RENTING a home for 22K. And miss me with the "get out of her pockets mess" because her ass is getting sued for non-payment and is just trying to bullsh!t them and the public to save face by claiming that she "refused" to pay instead of her not being able to.

As aformentioned, that's a LOT of back rent (What? like a year and a half) and I refuse to believe that (if she even had a long term lease or one at all) that she couldn't somehow get out of it or show why she wasn't paying rent if the living situation was THAT atrocious, before it got THIS out of hand.

Even if it was temporary, $22K A MONTH is ridiculous. Executive and corporate housing is less than that. She gon' learn when she's broke.

She could have had a nice place in Buckhead for $1,500, maybe $2K. Not no damn $22K. That's Hampton summer rental prices right there, no matter how "upscale" the area is.

I am a landlord. If a tenent has to break the lease early, we work out a deal. They can walk away, but not scott free. The law is however on the Landlords side...thats likely why mold was mentioned. That my dear is the deal breaker for MO. If she wants to prove it in court...it is cheap to do so or She can strike a deal involving a lil change and avoid this. my rents are $1,200-$1,600.00. That is easy to resolve between renter and landlord. This is a lot of money, so I suspenct she will go to court. I doubt she is broke. These type of disputes occur all of the time.

Anonymous said...

I agree with 1:14PM
She should have been able to settle the dispute more amicble.

Yes, we all understand this was temporary housing, but GTFOH! this is ATLANTA we're talking about. I've lived in the ATL twice over the last 25yrs & never came across any property that desirable for 20K + a month. I'm sure this home was huge to spare room for those little kids of hers. But remember, Mo'Nique is hood-rich, not "wealthy". That property should have been thoroughly inspected by her entourage of hood-friends.

....besides, Atlanta has some real shytty areas. Please.

I tried to watch her show but after the 2nd night I couldn't take the coonin and hollering and of course the BABBBYYY. Monique is known for her diva ways and being quite nasty. She has burned many bridges in Hollywood. SMH I find her funny and loved The Parkers it's a shame she has let her attitude block her blessings. $22,000 for a rental house in ATL-Yeah, they saw her ass coming. I don't care what section it was in that rent was OTT and she was crazy to sign that lease.

Ugh. I hated the Parkers. She exemplified low self esteem at its finest, chasing after a man who insulted her and had no interest. When she finally found a fine ass man to marry her, she stood him up at the alter for that same damn man.
Yes, it's TV. But all facets of entertainment send a message, and that was a negative one. That's why so much money is spent on advertisement, because some people buy into everything.

I couldn't get with that loud, fat chick runnin' down what appeared TO ME to be a hostile (DL?) brotha premise either.

But the show had a lot of fans even it I wasn't one of 'em.

Do betta, Mo.

I, for one, am looking forward to your Hattie McDaniel project.

The only thing more annoying than Monique was her sidecoon Rodney. I absolutely loath that man. Even though she seemed to have good guests, I could never really bring myself to watch a full episode of her show.

Anonymous said...

The issue isn't why she's renting. She can do whatever she wants. The issue is the fact that she's a damn fool for not having an attorney draw up a contract stating that the lease could be broken under certain circumstances. Her verbal agreement doesn't hold water in the state of Georgia. If it did she wouldn't be sued.

If she knew she was only going to be in Atlanta temporarily, she could have rented a three bedroom Condo or something. There is no way she should've been renting a house for $22,000 a month on a BET salary. I don't care how deep her pockets are, that much money for rent is stupid.

Anonymous said...

You guys are very dumd and ignorant. Many wealthy people rent out property. Its just simplier fo them during situations. Example: when actors are on location filming, they rent places to stay in. Also Mo' Nique did leave the show, it was not cancled.

These are the issues which should be taken into account before giving a house on rent.It is better to consult with a professional who deals with such matters.Thanks for the article.End of lease cleaning Sydney
