Terrence Howard -- who was evicted from Broadway -- has now been nailed with a huge amount of back rent.
Allow us to explain ... Howard lived in a fancy apartment building on Broadway in NYC. He fell WAY behind in rent and his landlord evicted him in May.
But there was some unfinished business. The landlord claimed Howard owed a whopping $51,907.85 in unpaid rent, so he sued for that amount.
Howard didn't show up for the court date, so the judge entered a default judgment in the landlord's favor.
Now here's the weird part. The judge didn't automatically accept the landlord's figure for back rent. Hizzoner has scheduled yet another hearing to determine exactly how much Howard owes.
Tenants can be such a pain in the ass.

12/14/2013 9:18 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Ambulances raced to Justin Bieber's Calabasas home early this morning after they received a 911 call saying a woman passed out inside ... TMZ has learned.
We've learned paramedics were dispatched to Bieber's crib this morning around 3 a.m. after someone at Beiber's reported there was a 20-year old unconscious female at the house ... but 15 minutes later the ambulances were called off.
Beiber was home at the time 911 was called. The person who called off the fire department told dispatch the woman would be transported privately to the hospital. But sources familiar with the situation tell us ... the woman regained consciousness and when she was told 911 had been called she insisted they be called off.
We're told the woman did not go to the hospital. She went home instead. We know alcohol was involved. We don't know what, if anything else, was involved.
We're also told the woman was attending a party thrown by Bieber.
Someone connected to Bieber told us ... a member of the singer's security team called 911 out of abundance of caution but the woman turned out to be ok.
'Hills' Star Doug Reinhardt
He Threatened To Beat The F**k Out of Me
... Says Neighbor
12/12/2013 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
12:45 P.M. PT -- We just heard from Reinhardt's attorney who told us, "Doug Reinhardt was surprised and very disappointed that one of his neighbors took a complaint about alleged noise at a party that could have been handled in a conversation over the backyard fence to the courts." He says Reinhardt is looking forward to telling his side of the story in court.
Doug Reinhardt -- former Paris Hilton BF who appeared on "The Hills" -- has been hit with a temporary restraining order after allegedly threatening to "beat the f**k" out of his neighbor, TMZ has learned.
The 29-year-old -- who's also the heir to a frozen burrito fortune -- has been living in a $15k-per-month home above the Sunset Strip, according to legal docs ... and his next-door neighbor says he's been a total nightmare.
The main issue ... the neighbor, a bigtime real estate agent, claims Doug's been throwing crazy parties that don't START until 2:30 AM.
And when the neighbor complained, he says Doug called him a "pain in the butt" and said, "I'm going to beat the f**k out of you."
The neighbor says he fears for his life ... and begged the courts for protection.
We've learned ... the judge issued a temporary restraining order against Doug, requiring him to keep his distance from the guy -- a whole 5 yards (since they're neighbors, any other distance would essentially require one of the parties to move).
Attempts to reach Reinhardt for comment were unsuccessful.

Booted From Beatdown Party
Renter Says 'It Was Her Fault'
12/10/2013 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Barron Hilton's bloody beatdown led to Lindsay Lohan getting kicked out of the South Florida mansion where they were partying ... according to a witness -- and TMZ has video of LiLo trying to re-enter the property.
In the video ... Lindsay's at the driveway gate of the home trying to get back inside, but the guard doesn't budge. Lohan's bodyguard then says, "Your brother's still there" ... referring to Michael Lohan Jr., who was also raging that night/morning.
One of the people renting the Star Island pad tells us Linds got booted because she freaked out and begged her pal Ray LeMoine to throw Barron out of the party. We're told her demand is what led to Ray punching Paris' kid bro.
The renter says it was unclear what sparked Lohan's grudge -- but Barron has said Lindsay accused him of talking trash.
Lindsay is adamant she wasn't kicked out, and only left because of rampant drug and alcohol use.
A few hours after Lindsay left, Barron was still chilling at the mansion ... face battered, and waiting to talk to police.

Sources say Lindsay's been living in the $16,000 a month pad while shooting her docu-series for Oprah Winfrey's cable network -- so the apartment doubles as a set for the show.

But Could Cost Him $2 MILLION
11/30/2013 3:55 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Charlie Sheen is one step closer to kicking Brooke Mueller's ass out of the house he bought for her -- TMZ has learned a real estate firm wants to buy the pad, but at such a discount ... Charlie would have to be desperate. Oh wait, he is.
TMZ obtained a copy of the letter Dginger Group fired off to Sheen's people offering $2,599,000 for the house ... along with a guarantee to close the deal in less than 7 days.
As we previously reported ... Sheen told Brooke he wants her out NOW, and even sent her a letter saying he's aggressively trying to sell the place.
But here's the rub -- Charlie bought the house for around $4.8 mil ... which means he'd be taking a massive $2.2 million bath if he accepts the current offer.
Our sources say Sheen's willing to sell at a reduced rate, but this might be pushing it.
Question is: how badly, and how quickly, do you want Brooke gone, Charlie?
Charlie to Brooke
Pack Your Bags Now
AND GET OUT
11/29/2013 1:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Charlie Sheen is done playing games with Brooke Mueller -- TMZ has learned, his attorney has sent her a letter demanding she move out of the home he bought for her ... RIGHT NOW.
Sources tell TMZ, the letter explains that Charlie is aggressively trying to sell the home -- which he purchased for Brooke so she and their twins could live close to him -- and she needs to pack her bags, stat.
But he doesn't just want her out of the house ... we're told Charlie wants her to move far, far away ... away from him and his other family with Denise Richards.
As we reported, Charlie is putting the home up for sale -- after purchasing it for around $4.8 million -- and is making the new price very attractive in order to sell it fast.
In fact, Charlie is so determined to get Brooke out of his life ... he's telling friends he'd gladly sell the house for a dollar just to get her out of his neighborhood.
Our sources say Brooke's brother Scott -- who's living with her in the gated community as the twins' temporary guardian -- hasn't been notified about any kind of move-out order.
Sources close to Sheen tell us, Charlie believes the letter was the motivating factor behind Brooke's allegations that Denise abused the twins ... Brooke was angry, and that's how she retaliated.
