Terrence Howard is claiming that his ex-wife is blackmailing him by threatening to release some revealing pictures and videos that could damage his career.

Terrence is trying to put and end to their spousal agreement that says he has to pay her a good amount of the money that he has made off the FOX hit TV show 'Empire.'

The rumor is that Terrence will make a formal legal claim that he gave his ex-wife, Michelle, a ridiculously rich spousal support deal because she was threatening him with various photos and videos.

He also says Michelle was really entitled to half a year's worth of spousal support, since the marriage only lasted one year. The standard is limited to such support to half of the time of marriage. So far, she has gotten five years worth of support.
