Mo’Nique And Husband Sidney Owe $400,000 In Back Taxes

Mo’Nique had an interesting 2015 after revealing that Hollywood had left her out in the cold after she didn’t “play the game” when it came to promoting her Oscar-winning turn in “Precious” a few years back. It appears that little lapse of work might have gotten her and her manager boo Sidney in some hot water with the feds, since the duo spent two consecutive years dodging the IRS and refusing to pay up. Via MailOnline:

Academy Award winner Mo’Nique and her husband are accused of not paying their taxes for two years – and now the government says they owe nearly $400,000.

The IRS filed a Federal Tax Lien against Mo’Nique and Sidney Hicks on May 9, according to official records in Georgia obtained by Daily Mail Online.

The lien states that the couple, who married in 2006, refused to pay their taxes for the years 2013 and 2014. In 2013, they owed $201,695.99, and in 2014, they owed $188,208.99, bringing the total to $389,904.98.

The federal government has threatened to seize her property and assets if they don’t pay.The couple own a 10,600 square-foot home in Duluth, Georgia they bought for $2.8 million in 2007.

Yikes. DailyMail also found the paperwork confirming that the feds want Mo’Nique to pay up…


Hopefully she can shake that Hollywood stigma and find some work to cough up the cash for these biils!
