Terrence Howard

You Must Pay $50k

to Your Sworn ENEMY!!!

2/21/2012 10:47 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0221_terrence_EX_01Terrence Howard is having a bad day ... 'cause the actor has just been ordered to write a big, fat check to a woman he accused of being an evil racist ... his wife.

Howard was in L.A. County Superior Court today to deal with his exceptionally nasty divorce from Michelle Ghent Howard ... and was ordered to shell out more than $50,000 to hold her over until they hammer out a long-term arrangement. 

Here's the breakdown ... the judge ruled that Michelle needs:
-- $10k in temporary support for rent, food, etc. 
-- $20k so she can pay her lawyers
-- $20k so she can pay her accountants
-- and $1,800 per month for her Range Rover car payments

Terrence has to fork over the dough within 30 days.

As TMZ previously reported, Terrence HATES Michelle with a passion ... claiming she often called him a "n**ger" ... tried to extort him ... and even threatened to have him killed by "The Russians."

Michelle also HATES Terrence ... and claims he violently assaulted her on numerous occasions since they tied the knot back in 2010.

Both sides are due back in court in 60 days. Bet they can't wait.

Yes, she was soo racist that she went and married a black guy. Pffft. Notice how he's the only one talking sh_t during this whole mess? Like any abuser, he can't stand the fact that she actually had the nerve to leave him. If SHE were the problem, then why is she the one divorcing him? It seems like if she were only in it for the money, then it would have benefited her more to just stay with him if he were treating her right. However, Terrence Howard is a woman beater. That's why he can't keep a woman. He needs to learn to control his anger and keep his f_cking hands to himself.

These sick broads only want you for your $paper. You are only to bang them then move on to the next one. Stop marrying these hoes unless they're Illuminati members who can help your career after you sign over your soul.

Terrence Howard should be "THANKFUL" that he's getting off RATHER CHEAP!!! At least he had enough sense "NOT" to "KNOCK UP" this "SILLY AZZ" GOLD DIGGER!!! It doesn't seem as though he made an "ENORMOUS" amount of money during the course of their marriage and they haven't been married long enough for her to expect "EXTENDED" spousal support. Perhaps from this point forward, Terrence Howard will insist upon making these women sign prenups and confidentiality agreements. Being slapped with the "NUISANCE" of "court appearances" and "legal fees" should be a "REAL" WAKE UP CALL!!! Frankly, the accusations from both parties seem to be primarily "he said/she said" and Michelle Ghent Howard "ISN'T" going to receive a GREAT DEAL OF MONEY FOR HER TROUBLES.

Who's story to you believe more? Her's of course. Really, if she was a Racist, why would she ever go out with him, let alone Marry Him? Have him killed by the Russians? Really? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Or the more believable because it happens all the time. You Marry someone and then find out what they are really like!! That's when the Guy then starts beating on you. When she left him, which a lot of times they stick around and end up dead, she told what was happening, and all HE could come up with is She's Racists and wanted to send the Russians after him to kill him. HAHAHAHAHAHA, oh that's a good one.

Racists, and Racism is thrown around so much these days for every little thing that has nothing to do with Racism that it's really lost most of it's meaning. It's crying wolf way to many times.

Michelle Ghent is a gold digger who will say anything for bucks. Note to talented actors, don't marry the call girls. They will pretend to be something they're not. How much of a "long time" did she "lub you"? Terrence, learn a lesson from Charlie Sheen. Pay them to go away, not to keep them. Hopefully 50,000 is enough to be rid of her, hideous, nasty, skanking, mess.

Some brothers will never learn. If you are a actor, football player, basketball player, just naming a few. You really need to sign a pre-nup. Just remember black women comes in all shades of color.

Michelle Ghent is laughing all the way to the bank. Terrence Howard is busy being the best actor on the planet. Mr. Howard is busy being the best host, narrator, voice over,promoter, interview, ... He works for a living, she goes to spas.
