When you stop and think about it, the only difference between their divorce and your divorce is the amount of money involved. Otherwise, they endure the same court battles, and custody and support disputes.
Empire Star Terrence Howard Disputes Divorce Settlement Terms
Take the divorce case of Empire star Terrence Howard as an example.
He and his lawyer recently convinced a California family court judge to overturn a 2012 divorce agreement that would have entitled his ex-wife, Michelle Ghent, to a healthy share of Howard's earnings.
The initial divorce settlement gave Ghent several of the couple's bank accounts as well as a portion of all of his income.
Considering that Howard has a hit series on Fox, her portion would have been sizeable.
In the recent proceedings, Superior Court Judge Thomas Trent Lewis agreed with Howard, who successfully argued that Ghent had bribed him into signing the 2012 divorce agreement that was in question.
Back in 2012, Ghent had warned Howard that if he didn't sign the divorce agreement, she would reveal private details about the actor, including sex recordings and a video of him nude.
Howard explained to the court that he submitted to her bribe only because he believed the release of the items in Ghent's possession would have damaged his career.
