Terrence Howard Almost Got Fired From 'Empire,' New Lawsuit Claims

Terrence Howard is being sued.

The 47-year-old Empire star’s former management company, Authentic Talent and Literary Management, has filed a lawsuit claiming he owes them $250,000 after they helped save his job on the show, according to People.

There aren’t many details on why his job was in trouble, but the company says it “intervened with the Los Angeles-based executives of Imagine and effectively saved Howard‘s job on Empire by convincing those executives not to terminate Howard from the show.”

He signed with Authentic back in summer 2013 and terminated his agreement in September 2014.

The complaint alleges that Terrence stopped making payments in March 2016 and “has failed to [pay further post-termination commissions] despite having received millions of dollars from Empire and despite being in a position to receive millions more.”
