He allegedly just tied the knot for the fourth time.
But Terrence Howard’s previous marriage has come back to haunt him once again.
The actor’s ex-wife Michelle Ghent has accused the 44-year-old of not paying his court ordered spousal support, which amounts to more than $100,000.
According to court documents obtained by the website, the Oscar nominee has lagged on his payments to Ghent.
‘Since the commencement date of 5/15/12, Terrence Howard has only made sporadic payments to me totaling $18,435 and owes an arrearage sum of $63,303… Terrence Howard owes me $122,221.64 including interest… legal fees to my lawyer, $15,500,’ according to the papers.
Ghent also said that Howard’s alleged failure to pay her has ruined her credit score and forced her to move out of her apartment.
‘During our recent reconciliation, Terrence Howard frequently made charges on my credit cards as Respondent does not have his own credit cards and promised to reimburse me for his charges,’ she alleges.
The pair tried to rekindle their relationship earlier this year with a trip to Costa Rica, and Ghent says Howard still owes her for that holiday.
‘At Terrence Howard’s request, I charged our 7/2013 trip to Costa Rica on my credit card. The unreimbursed charges for the Costa Rica trip and prior charges are approx. $18,282.’
The filing also reveals Howard earned $856,442.77 between May 2012 and June 2013, reports Radar.
Ghent’s accusation is just the latest in a bitter saga between the former couple.
Ghent was granted a temporary protection order by a Los Angeles judge in August, preventing Howard from coming within 100 yards of her after claiming he beat her during their Costa Rica trip in July.
Howard countered saying he did not lay a finger on her and that she had attacked him with a pepper spray, striking his adult daughter and another family member as well.
Though the pair went their separate ways when divorce papers were finalised in May, the two tried to rekindle their relationship as they travelled together to the Central American country with Terrence’s family.
The termination of their relationship in 2011 was notoriously acrimonious, with Michelle accusing her husband of turning violent within months of their quiet marriage in 2010.
For his part, the Butler star had claimed she called him a slew of racist names and even threatened to have him killed by Russian gangsters.
In the divorce settlement, the father-of-three was able to keep a majority of his assets, including his two homes in Pennsylvania.
Michelle was granted $5,800 in spousal support for the next three years, but was forced to return his 2011 Range Rover.
Meanwhile, it was reported earlier this week that Howard had secretly tied the knot with a Canadian woman named Miranda, whom he allegedly had only known for one month.
