*Terrence Howard is battling to overturn a financial settlement he signed with his second wife Michelle Ghent at the time of their 2012 divorce, and on Monday, the judge in the case said he will take a week to determine whether to set aside Howard’s divorce judgment that entitles his ex-wife to a spousal support and a share of his earnings from the hit TV series “Empire.”
The 46-year-old Oscar-nominated actor had been on the stand Thursday, Friday and Monday to testify about why his 2012 divorce settlement with Ghent should be overturned. Howard said that Ghent threatened to release embarrassing recordings and other damaging information about his health if he didn’t give her money.
During his often tearful testimony, Terrence revealed that he and Ghent smoked weed, used cocaine and ecstasy and watched a lot of porn together during their relationship, according to TMZ. Howard claims since their divorce, he’s a changed man. The gossip website reported he told the court: ‘I refuse to get high. I refuse to watch porn.’
A restraining order was enforced after Ghent filed a domestic-violence suit against Howard on July 28, a day before the statute of limitations ran out on an incident that happened while they were in Costa Rica in 2013. The retraining order is still active.
A surprising detail emerged while Terrence was on the stand. According to the NY Daily News, an attorney representing Ghent referred to Howard’s third wife Mira Pak as his “ex-wife.” Pak filed for divorce in March and it was quietly finalized on July 27, according to court documents. She was pregnant with son Qirin when she filed, and the divorce docs addressed child-support considerations, the LA Times reports.
Terrence and Mira got married in October 2013 and she gave birth to Qirin in May 2015.
Well, one thing can’t be denied, Terrence certainly has a particular type!
