*Mo’Nique is embroiled in a legal battle with her landlord over allegations her home smells and suffers a serious problem with mold, reports TMZ.

The actress has filed legal papers in Fulton County, Georgia in a bid to be released from her $22,000-a-month tenancy agreement on grounds that her house is in a terrible condition.

Her legal move comes in response to a lawsuit filed by her landlords, who allege the Oscar winner has illegally backed out of her rental contract and owes them approximately $370,000 in payments, according to the website.

Mo’Nique maintains she entered into a verbal contract with her landlords which allowed her to back out of the deal.
