Bad News for Mo'Nique and Her Husband

Looks like times have been hard.

Published June 3, 2016

Mo'Nique and her husband Sidney Hicks are going through a rough patch.

The couple have been slapped with a tax bill totaling a whopping $400,000 by the IRS, the Daily Mail reports, and could wind up homeless if they don't pay.

The tax 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 — including a 10,600 square-foot home in Duluth, Georgia, they bought for $2.8 million — if they don't pay.

According to the Bessie star, times have been tough in recent years. Last year, Mo famously revealed she had been "blackballed" in Hollywood after being deemed too difficult to work with and that she was even supposed to play Cookie Lyon in Empire before Lee Daniels backed out of their verbal agreement. 

Hopefully times will get better for these two soon. Earlier this year, Mo and her husband launched their own satellite radio talk show centered around their open relationship. Catch up on the details with BET Breaks above.
