rental late fees

Our Land lord charges $10 a day in late fees, which is alright with my wife and I. It's even written out in our renter's lease. But, 2 years ago, my wife was having a difficult time and was unable to pay her rent for a few months. By the time our landlord tacked on all his ''late fees'' it came to almost $9,000.00. Several thousand of which she has already paid back. The rent for our very small apartment is only $250.00 a month. Where did he get this figure from? Am I wrong to think these people abused my wife's nieve nature? I have never heard of such an extreme amount of late fees laid on any one. He was charing her up to $60.00 a day. The LL is still hounding her to this day to pay up the balance or get out! (which he only wants paid in cash, but we still have resiepts)Can someone please help us with this? Is what he is doing illegal?Thank You.
