Terrence Howard Ordered to Pay $50K to Ex-Wife

The actor is forced to pay up after ugly, public divorce proceedings.

Published February 22, 2012

Terrence Howard's bitter divorce has left him with a hefty $50,000 bill. The actor was ordered to pay up the big bucks in L.A. County Superior Court yesterday after a particularly nasty divorce from his wife, Michelle Ghent Howard. He has 30 days to pay out the money.

TMZ got the breakdown of the money Michelle was awarded. The judge decided she needs: $10k in temporary support for rent, food, etc., $20k for legal fees, $20k for accountants and $1,800 per month for her Range Rover car payments.


Both parties are due back in court in 60 days and if the rest of their court documents are any indication it wont be pretty.  Terrence claims that Michelle often called him a “ni**er” and a “monkey” and tried to extort him, while Michelle claims that her ex has violently assaulted her on numerous occasions ever since they got married in 2010.
