“Pregnant Man” Thomas Beatie finalizes divorce

Forty-one-year-old transgender and sexuality issues advocate and Hawaii resident Thomas Beatie has recently finalized his contested divorce with wife Nancy Gillespie after he agreed to give her his shark tooth collection.

Beatie is most well-known as the “Pregnant Man” from the unusual circumstances of his 2007 pregnancy. He and Gillespie originally separated in 2012 amid Beatie’s allegations that Gillespie was an alcoholic who had a tendency of committing violent attacks on him.

A judge denied a divorce request in 2013, ruling that the state ban on same-sex marriages indicates that the ex-couple’s marriage had not been valid in the first place. This decision was overturned by Arizona’s Court of Appeals in 2014.

Final arguments presented in on Terrence Howard divorce settlement case

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.
