Empire‘s Terrence Howard is being sued by his former management firm for $250,000.
Howard is being sued by Authentic Talent and Literary Management for a “breach of contract.” According to E! News, ATLM filed a complaint at the Los Angeles Superior Court claiming to have played a “key role in the resurgence of Howard’s career” and that they provided him with “professional, personal and other advice and career guidance”.
ATLM claims to have parted ways with the Empire star after he received his role as Lucious Lyon on Fox’s Empire. Since then, Howard has not yet paid them for their services adding up to $250,000. E! News says, “The company now claims that they are entitled to 10 percent of revenue that Howard received while he was working with them, and that includes his Empire salary”.
Howard recently won a court case to overturn his spousal support for ex-wife Michelle Ghent who received $5,800 per month and was gunning for more. Howard reportedly makes in excess of $125,000 per episode of Empire and Ghent was sure she was owed more. The judge overturned her case and the spousal support is set to end sometime in 2016.
Season 3 of Empire is set to air on Wednesday, September 21st at 9pm on Fox.
