Terrence Howard just can't seem to get on the good foot these days. Two weeks ago he was dumped from the "Iron Man 2" sequel and replaced with Don Cheadle. Last week he told NPR that he only learned of his dismissal through the trades and this week reports are leaking that the Oscar-nominated actor is being sued for assault!
Composer and jazz pianist Andrew "Tex" Allen, who worked on Debbie Allen's Broadway version of "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof," alledges that Howard, one of the stars of that production, punched him repeatedly during a rehearsal last January. Tex Allen is the brother of Debbie Allen and is seeking $5 million in damages according to the New York Post.
WTF reported last week that Howard could be "different," but administering beatdowns is out there even for him. Maybe he needs to sit down with Oprah, Dr. Phil or Flava Flav. Something's up with that brother.
