Terrence Howard is once again a divorced man.
The Empire star’s secret split from third wife Mira Pak was revealed on Aug. 17 during a separate court proceeding relating to his second wife, Michelle Ghent.

According to legal papers obtained by the New York Daily News, the 46-year-old actor and Mira, 38, finalized their divorce on July 27. The pair, who married in 2013, began living separately a year ago despite welcoming their first child, Qirin Love, in May.
Just one week ago, Mira stood by Terrence’s side as he testified during an ongoing court case to overturn his 2012 settlement with Michelle. The Oscar nominee claims his ex blackmailed him by threatening to release recordings of him dancing naked and having phone sex with other women.

Michelle maintains that she was not out to get him, as evidenced by an October 2013 phone call she received, in which Terrence claimed he still loved her.
The father-of-four explained that their relationship was complicated. “I loved her, and I was afraid of her also,” he testified on Monday. A ruling on the case is expected next week.
