Terrence Howard Ordered to Pay Estranged Wife $50K

by at . Comments

Terrence Howard has been ordered to shell out $50,000 for his soon-to-be ex-wife's expenses in the midst of their ongoing, increasingly ugly legal dispute.

Howard's camp had claimed that the Red Tails star is low on cash and Michelle Ghent Howard's allegations of mistreatment were harming his reputation.

Apparently the judge did not concur.

Terrence Howard and Michelle Howard

According to Michelle Howard's attorney, Karen Donahoe, he maintains a $76,000 / month lifestyle after making $2.6 million as an actor in the past year.

Terrence's attorney, Christian Markey, countered: "He hasn't had a paycheck. No job offers. And he only has $20,000 in cash. She's got more money."

The once-happy couple quietly tied the knot in January 2010, but Ghent filed for divorce a year later ... and said Howard beat and threatened to kill her.

She obtained a restraining order. Howard claims she's a racist, jealous monster who claimed that she "never wanted to marry a n----r in the first place."

An evidentiary hearing is scheduled for April 23.

Until then, Howard owes $1,800 a month for her Range Rover, $20,000 for her attorney fees, $20,000 for accountant fees and $10,000 in spousal support.

TH has had many problems in the past with striking or abusing women. This isn't the first time and so either she knew that and is building her case on his past or he actually is just continuing his pattern. In either case, they married quickly and the relationship fizzled probably because of his controling ways aka prima-donna syndrome and she not being able to deal with it vs. her wanting to be in his world for the fame and riches. They both are probably to blame for what is going on now...it just doesn't seem like their is a victim here...more of two people reaping what they sow.

These men need to stop marrying women for their looks. They always want the women that are of asian decent. They ignore the beautiful black women cause they don't view them as beautiful. But one of your parents is black. I don't feel sorry for him at all.

Black, white, asian whatever, every race has a gold digger. Stop pulling the race card all the time.

IF THESE ACTORS, BLACK OR WHITE, IT DOESN'T MATTER WHICH, JUST RENTED THE WHORES, INSTEAD OF MARRYING THEM, THEY WOULD SAVE A FORTUNE. HOWARD, GIBSON, ETC. OR THEY COULD PULL A O.J., OR A BLAKE. SEE BLACK OR WHITE, SAME PROBLEM.
