‘Empire’ Star Terrence Howard Secretly Divorced Third Wife

Forget watching “Empire” — these days the behind-the-scenes drama surrounding the popular Fox series is a lot more interesting than anything happening on the show. For example, a recent court hearing revealed that “Empire” star Terrence Howard might have more in common with his character, villainous record producer Lucious Lyon, than fans would think, exposing a recent divorce from his third wife and allegations of suicide threats and drug use.

According to the New York Daily News, a court hearing Monday to settle Howard’s second divorce from ex-wife Michelle Ghent revealed that Howard, 46, was also newly divorced from his third wife, Mira Pak, 38. The couple reportedly secretly filed for divorce on July 27 citing irreconcilable differences. They have apparently been living separately since August 2014; their son Qirin Love Howard was born in May.

The court proceedings also shed light on scandalous behavior during Howard’s marriage to Ghent. According to People magazine, the couple regularly used marijuana, cocaine and Ecstasy together, and engaged in a threesome. Plus, Howard reportedly made multiple threats of suicide to Ghent during their marriage and allegedly accused his ex-wife of threatening him with blackmail.

This comes after news that Howard and Ghent’s divorce was revealed to be causing salary headaches for “Empire” and the Fox network. According to TMZ, Fox parent company 21st Century Fox has asked a judge to help determine who will receive Howard’s salary for his work on “Empire.” Howard claims his settlement agreement with Ghent is invalid and, therefore, he should receive the entire amount. However, Ghent asserts that she is entitled to a large portion of that money. Meanwhile, 21st Century Fox remains worried that if it pays the wrong party it could end up losing money by having to pay again to make things right.

And in a revealing new interview, Gwyneth Paltrow has opened up about why she decided to separate from the Coldplay front man.

The 42-year-old actress told Marie Claire: ‘There was nothing dramatic or anything. I had built my life on trying to be all things to all people, and I just couldn’t do it anymore.’

‘I really had the sense that I wasn’t allowed to have needs, and I had to prove my specialness or self-worth by doing all this stuff and taking care of everybody else, and I just sort of hit a wall.’

The Iron Man actress remains close to her former beau and also explained how important it is that they maintain a solid friendship.

She revealed: ‘We’ve worked really  hard to get to [this] point. But we’re very, very close, and it’s so nice. I feel like it’s, in a way, the relationship we were meant to have.’

Adam Sandler is Forbes most overpaid actor for second year in a row

Adam Sandler most overpaid actor in Hollywood?

Yep, and not only is it true he has the dubious distinction of earning the honor for the second straight year according to Forbes magazine.

The financial magazine “looked at the last three movies of the biggest stars in Hollywood and calculated what they were paid and what the movies earned to come up with what is essentially a return on investment number for each star. We estimate that for every $1 Sandler was paid, he returned an average of $3.20.”


The 48-year-old comedian hasn’t had a hit in ages, but was the topic of a number of hacked Sony emails that revealed he was still demanding outrageous pay for the films he did with the studio.

In one of the emails it was noted,”It is commendable that SPE understands/supports the importance of risk-taking, particularly in how the we pick films to greenlight. However, the studio needs to change deal structure that has been in place with Happy Madison, as this arrangement has disproportionately benefitted Adam Sandler and his team, relative to SPE”

Also,  “There is a general “blah-ness” to the films we produce. Although we manage to produce an innovative film once in awhile, Social Network, Moneyball, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, we continue to be saddled with the mundane, formulaic Adam Sandler films.”

His last film for Sony was Grown Ups 2 which did okay. But he also starred in total bombs like That’s My Boy and Jack and Jill for which he still received a giant salary.

Maybe it’s a good thing he’s taking his talent to Netflix in 2015.

I was raped, reknown American actor Shia LaBeouf says

Shia LaBeouf claims he was raped during his art installation – where members of the public were invited to spend time with him as he sat in silence with a bag on his head – earlier this year.

The Fury actor spent five days sitting in a Los Angeles gallery in silence with a paper bag on his head, with members of the public invited to choose an item from a selection on a table and sit with him for a while, and the 28-year-old-actor says one encounter was extremely unpleasant.

He said: “One woman who came with her boyfriend, who was outside the door when this happened, whipped my legs for ten minutes and then stripped my clothing and proceeded to rape me

“There were hundreds of people in line when she walked out with disheveled hair and smudged lipstick. It was no good, not just for me but her man as well.”

And the Nymphomaniac star says the experience was particularly “painful” because his girlfriend Mia Goth, 21, was outside waiting to see him – and he couldn’t discuss what had happened with her because of the nature of the #IAMSORRY installation.
