Final arguments made over Terrence Howard divorce settlement

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A judge says he will rule next week on whether Terrence Howard can set aside a divorce agreement that entitled his ex-wife to a share of his earnings.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Thomas Trent Lewis heard closing arguments in the case on Monday and said he would issue his ruling at an Aug. 24 hearing.

Lewis heard four days of testimony in the hearing, including audio of Howard’s ex-wife threatening to sell private information and the actor professing his love for her even after he married another woman.

Lewis gave no indication on how he would rule, but he ordered attorneys to reconvene for a hearing on Aug. 24.

Howard says his ex-wife, Michelle Ghent, repeatedly threatened to leak private information and recordings of him. Her attorneys say Howard didn’t prove his case.
