Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Thomas Trent Lewis said on Monday, August 17 that it will take him a week to decide whether to allow 46-year-old actor and singer Terrence Howard to set aside a divorce judgment that will entitle Howard’s second ex-wife, Michelle Ghent, to spousal support and a share of Howard’s professional earnings, which includes money he earned as the lead role in the FOX drama, Empire.
Ghent and Howard were married in January 2010- she filed for divorce from him a year later.
During the trial, Howard’s attorneys played for the court a September 2011 recording that showed Ghent threatening to reveal private information about Howard to the public if Howard didn’t wire her money immediately. Howard then said he sent Ghent $40,000, but according to Ghent’s lawyers, that particular sum was to cover housing expenses.
