Financial And Marital Problems
In July 2014, Terrence's first wife Michelle sued him for allegedly owing $325,000 in unpaid spousal support. Terrence claimed that at the time of their settlement, he was blackmailed into signing an unfair agreement. He further claimed he could not afford the payments because he was only earning a total of $5800 per month. In the same court case, Terrence revealed that the majority of his Hollywood income goes directly to his first wife to support their kids. Things are so bad that Terrence is technically on his first wife's payroll. He receives $5800 directly from her after his obligations are met.
