Terrence Howard is gonna have to fork over close to $1 million in back spousal support … that’s if his ex-wife gets her way in court.
Terrence’s ex-wife, Michelle Ghent, filed legal docs asking the court to make the “Empire” star cut her a check for at least $909,418 in back spousal support … claiming Terrence has been dragging his feet since he lost an appeal about the issue back in October.
In docs, obtained by TMZ, Michelle says she’s spent at least $820k in legal fees to get Terrence to pay up, so she wants him to also pony up that dough for her lawyers. What’s more … Michelle wants a judge to get Terrence to stop dodging the tab … claiming he’s essentially hiding his “Empire” money. She claims he’s made almost $9.7 million for “Empire” over the last 5 years, so it’s only fair he pay up.
The judge will decide how much Terrence has to pay in a September hearing.
