Terrence Howard

Ends 6-Figure War

with Bitter Ex-Manager

EXCLUSIVE

0424-terrance-howard-tmz
In the midst of a nasty divorce with his allegedly racist wife, Terrence Howard somehow found time to tackle ANOTHER legal dispute -- this time with an ousted ex-manager, who claimed Howard owed her mega bucks in unpaid commission.

The manager -- a woman named Victoria Fredrick -- filed a lawsuit against the actor last year, claiming Terrence owed her $137,500 for work she did while he starred in "Winnie" and "Fightin," for which Terrence earned a combined $2.75 million.

Fredrick also claimed Terrence owed her residuals from some of his biggest movies -- "Hustle and Flow", "Get Rich or Die Tryin", "Iron Man" -- PLUS over 100 future movies not even made yet.

But Howard furiously shot back -- claiming Fredrick was a "personal manager" only insofar as she answered phones and ran errands ... she did NOT help babysit his movie career, or have a stake in future projects.

Terrence said he paid her adequately while he employed her -- including some commission -- but any money demands she made beyond that were BS.

But it's all water under the bridge now -- the case was dismissed last week ... after the parties settled out of court for an undisclosed amount.

Doesn't anyone in Hollyweird write this crap down in a contract? This should be VERY clear.

You go Terrence! Get rid of these greedy hangers on. You're still trying to get your residuals from these same movies. Frederick should be suing the studios who financed these films, or your soon to be ex-wife. Did the gold digger ever return the $200,000 plus that she stole from you? Rock on,Terrence, you are going to win.
