Terrence Howard's ex-wife, Michelle Ghent, is accusing him of hiding his fortune from the court and is demanding the he scrape up almost half a million dollars as soon as possible.

According to TMZ, Ghent claims that the actor owes $481,715 in back spousal support and legal costs, and she is seeking a court order to force him to pay up. That number has grown from the $325,000 Ghent claimed Howard owed her back in May.

Howard says that most of his earnings go toward the spousal support of another ex-wife, Lori McMasters, and there isn't enough left over to pay Ghent. However, Ghent is accusing her ex of fraud, stating in her court docs that the actor admitted back in 2013 to creating "fake debt" to McMasters.

Ghent adds that Howard has been planning to withhold spousal support from her and even told her, "I am not gonna give you one cent." According to the court docs, the actor earned at least $1.3 million last year alone and has enough work lined up for the next couple of years that will pay him well.
