“Empire” star Terrence Howard was vanquished at a critical court hearing Friday and ordered to pay his ex-wife a whopping $1.3 million in overdue support and interest.
A Los Angeles judge refused to grant the Oscar-nominated actor another delay and ruled he owes second wife Michelle Ghent $263,137 in back spousal support and another $1,055,970 due to his surge in income playing patriarch Lucious Lyon on his hit Fox show.
Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Helen Zukin said Ghent and her lawyers were “forced” to litigate the case for years because Howard refused to pay a divorce judgment entered in May 2013.
“This has gone on long enough,” Zukin said Friday. “The Court of Appeals determined it’s a valid judgment, and it’s time to enforce that judgment.”
The judge set a follow-up hearing for next week to rule on the hefty attorney fees Howard must pay to Ghent’s lawyers after he lost his attempt to overturn the judgment. Altogether, the legal fees are expected to top another $1 million.
