In the midst of a nasty divorce with his allegedly racist wife, Terrence Howard somehow found time to tackle ANOTHER legal dispute — this time with an ousted ex-manager, who claimed Howard owed her mega bucks in unpaid commission.
The manager — a woman named Victoria Fredrick — filed a lawsuit against the actor last year, claiming Terrence owed her $137,500 for work she did while he starred in “Winnie” and “Fightin,” for which Terrence earned a combined $2.75 million.
Fredrick also claimed Terrence owed her residuals from some of his biggest movies — “Hustle and Flow“, “Get Rich or Die Tryin“, “Iron Man” — PLUS over 100 future movies not even made yet.
But Howard furiously shot back — claiming Fredrick was a “personal manager” only insofar as she answered phones and ran errands … she did NOT help babysit his movie career, or have a stake in future projects.
Terrence said he paid her adequately while he employed her — including some commission — but any money demands she made beyond that were BS.
But it”s all water under the bridge now — the case was dismissed last week … after the parties settled out of court for an undisclosed amount.
