Terrence Howard is headed back to court in an attempt to get his spousal support payments to ex-wife, Michelle Ghent, lowered. The exact amount he's shelling out isn't known, but according to TMZ, Howard believes the amount is "ridiculous" and can't afford it.
The actor claims Ghent blackmailed and extorted him into the agreement. Since the divorce was finalized two years ago, Terrence has fallen $325,000 behind in payments. He also owes an additional $106,000 for Ghent's attorneys and accountant fees.
Howard claims he'll never be able to afford the payments to Ghent because a large chunk of his income goes to another ex-wife, Lori McCommas, for child and spousal support.
The Academy Award-nominated actor's Hollywood income goes directly to McCommas, who then cuts him a check. Howard estimates he takes home $5,878 a month.
He and Ghent were married for one year.
