Actor Terrence Howard was evicted from his SoHo apartment in NYC from non-payment of rent. He owes his landlord $55,000 in back rent.
Iron Man” star Terrence Howard squatted in a tony SoHo pad for more than a year before recently being evicted, a new lawsuit says. “He’s just another deadbeat. He owes about $55,000,” said lawyer Lawrence Wolf, who’s representing the landlord of the West Broadway apartment where Howard lived for months without paying rent, until finally getting the boot in May.
Howard moved into the apartment in November 2011, but didn’t pay rent for months. And he continued to stay in the apartment even after his lease was up in November 2012.
The lawsuit is just the latest in a string of troubles for Howard, whose ex-wife got a restraining order against him last week after he allegedly beat her up.
“The Butler’’ actor had signed a lease on the swanky apartment in November 2011 but didn’t pay rent for months — and never moved out even when his lease was up in November 2012, according to the suit.
“There’s no dispute. The issue is strictly the nonpayment,” Wolf said.
Howard has also been arrested multiple times in the past 15 years for assaulting women.
