New details have emerged in the ongoing battle between actor Terrance Howard and his ex-wife, Michelle Ghent.

Howard, 45, owes Ghent approximately $481,000 in support according to gossip website TMZ, but claimed his income is only $5,878 a month, making it nearly impossible to pay up.

Howard was married to his first wife, Lori McMasters, for 14 years and claims he surrenders a portion of his salary to her and their three children.

Ghent, to whom Howard was married for just over a year between 2010 and 2011, claimed that Howard has been hiding money from her and the court system, according to TMZ. She accused Howard of creating a “fake debt” to McMasters so that he would appear unable to pay Ghent, according to NewsOne.

Court docs showed that Howard earned at least $1.3 million last year, according to NewsOne.

According to The (U.K.) Daily Mail, Howard married a Canadian woman named Miranda last December after dating her for about one month.
