Terrence Howard Mira Pak Divorce: Actor And Third Wife Kept Split Secret
According to court documents, Terrence Howard and Mira Pak, his third wife, have been divorced since May and have been separated for over a year. The divorce bombshell was dropped as Howard was testifying against his second wife, Michelle Ghent, who has been extorting him, allegedly, of course.
A fourth time (he married one woman twice) was not a charm for Terrence Howard and Mira Pak, for it has been confirmed that they went splitsville pretty fast.
While in court battling his second wife, Michelle Ghent, lawyers for Howard dropped the bombshell that he secretly divorced his third wife, model/restaurateur Mira Pak, several months ago.
The news was very shocking to many because last week, Pak accompanied Howard to a Los Angeles courtroom. According to the divorce papers filed in a Chicago, Illinois, Pak cited irreconcilable differences in March, when she was seven months pregnant with the couple’s first child.
The pair welcomed a baby boy named Qirin Love in May. Pak also confessed that she and the Empire star had been living separately since August of 2014. Howard wed his third wife in late 2013.
The new father is having a very busy week and month battling it out with his second wife, Ghent, who apparently tried to blackmail him with a sex tape. Via the New York Daily News:
In his testimony, Howard alleged Ghent threatened to release embarrassing recordings of him dancing naked and engaging in phone sex with other women if she didn’t get her way.
Ghent, through her lawyers, has claimed Howard always had “free will” and that she simply “met fire with fire” when she threatened to sell recordings one time while facing eviction due to Howard’s neglect and taking surgery-related hormones.
Many are wondering, why did Mira Pak dump her spouse just six months after a lavish wedding in Canada? According to a recording unveiled in the courtroom, he was still in love with his second wife.
Ghent played a recorded conversation for the judge where Howard could be heard saying just days after marrying Pak that he was in love with his ex. Howard, a grandfather of two, said during the exchange:
“I will never love someone like I loved you, You are my dream of all time.”
Howard went on to insult Pak by saying that she was not the woman he wanted to be with. He shared:
“I’ve got a chance to be okay and to just settle. I have the most brilliant mind in the f- – – ing world.”
Howard claimed he had a perfectly logical explanation for telling Ghent that he loved her – she was extorting him and was threatening to destroy his career.
He also revealed that he accepted to pay his former spouse an enormous amount of money per month because he feared her. Ghent stated that Howard physically abused her in the past, and she wants him to pay what he owes.
What are your thoughts on the secret divorce?
