Mo’Nique‘s landlords are suing her because she broke a 2-year lease (which she signed back in March) and owes them $370,000 in unpaid rent and other charges.

But the Academy Award winning actress says her house smells like dog crap, and she doesn’t owe them sh*t! (pun intended)

So now she’s counter-suing them, demanding that they release her from a $22,000/month rental contract because her house smells like dog feces.

TMZ has all the details below:

Mo’Nique filed the papers in Fulton County (Georgia) in response to her landlords’ lawsuit — which claims the actress bailed on her two-year lease agreement, signed in March, and owes $370,000 in unpaid rent and other charges.

But Mo says it’s all crap … literally … insisting there’s a damn good reason she’s walking out on the rental contract — the house stinks of dog feces, wet dog, and urine (of unknown origin) … not to mention an overflowing septic tank.

But it doesn’t end there — according to Mo’Nique, the house also had a bad mold problem and the security gate was busted.

Mo’Nique claims she struck a verbal agreement with the landlords, allowing her to renege on her contract with 60 days notice because of all the problems — but Mo’ claims her landlords aren’t living up to their word.
