I know Michelle Ghent is one happy woman right now. The now ex-wife of Terrence Howard can finally call herself a single lady again now that her divorce settlement with the actor is final.
TMZ reported in December that things between the two were coming to a close but apparently the pair wasn’t too happy with the way belongings were going to be divided and they’ve been battling every since. Now, the gossip site says that a judge finalized the couple’s split earlier this week, and unlike other typical divorce settlements where the wife takes their husband for everything, Terrence reportedly made out this time. TMZ says Terrence gets to keep the couple’s marital properties, which includes two homes in Pennsylvania and 25 bank accounts. Twenty-five though? Has he been making moves, or should I say movies, we don’t know about?
Michelle didn’t totally lose out. She will be getting spousal support for the next three years to the tune of $5,800 a month, but the former missus has been ordered to return Terrence’s 2011 Range Rover. Thankfully, she gets to keep her bike and a BMW. Those are probably mild consolation prizes considering the nightmare of a marriage Michelle claims to have had with the actor. When she filed for divorce in February 2011, the couple had only been married for one year but she accused Terrence of abusing her and sought a restraining order against him. He, in turn, accused Michelle of being racist. What one thing has to do with the other we’re not sure, but the important thing now, I suppose, is that the two can move on. Although that may make Terrence no nevermind, considering he’s had a new girlfriend for about as long as the couple has been trying to settle this divorce. SMH
