Actor Terrence Howard his ex-wife, Michelle Ghent, have been entangled in a bitter court battle for years. Although Howard and Ghent divorced back in 2013, Howard reportedly refused to pay a divorce judgment and Ghent later filed documents asking the court to order her ex-husband to pay up.
Last week, Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Helen Zukin ruled that Ghent should be paid $263,137 in back spousal support. In addition to that lump sum, Judge Zukin also ordered Howard to give Ghent $1,055,970 because his income has greatly increased since becoming the star of Empire. Additionally this week, there will be a ruling on how much he will need to pay to cover Ghent’s attorney’s fees. Those expenses are believed to be excess of $1 million.
