These things are never easy.
On Monday, it was revealed in court that Empire star Terrence Howard divorced his third wife, Mira Pak, back on July 27. Whoa!

Apparently Pak started the divorce proceedings back in March of this year while she was still pregnant with the former couple's first child, citing irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split.
The big question is though, how did this information fly under the radar for so long and why are we just now hearing about it?
Unfortunately for the 46-year-old actor, the information came out during a different court case that Howard has with his second wife, Michelle Ghent, regarding his 2012 settlement. Howard claims that Ghent blackmailed him into a larger divorce settlement with alleged recordings of him dancing naked and having phone sex with other women.
It was during the closing arguments of this case on Monday that the judge referred to Pak, who happened to be at Howard's side at the time, as his "ex-wife." This came during the playback of a conversation Howard had with Ghent — despite being married to Pak at the time — in which he told her:
"I will never love someone like I loved you. You are my dream of all time."
In regards to his current court case, as well as the information that has come out regarding his personal relationships, Howard was none-too-pleased with what happened and feels violated by the system. He said:
"To have your personal life exposed between family and shared with the public, I think is a violation of our privacy, and of our constitutional rights. It needs to be reformed."
Well that's certainly a tall order but we're not entirely sure that we disagree with him. But for now, sadly it's just part of the price of being famous.
