Terrence Howard's divorce settlement overturned

US actor Terrence Howard's divorce settlement from his second wife has been overturned after a judge found he signed the agreement under duress.
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Thomas Trent Lewis ruled that Howard signed the 2012 agreement over fears his ex-wife would leak private details about him, including phone sex recordings with other women and a video of the actor dancing in the nude.
The ruling means Mr Howard and his ex-wife Michelle Ghent, will have to negotiate a new financial agreement. It does not undo their status as a divorced couple.
Mr Howard tearfully testified about Ms Ghent's threats during a recent hearing.
Mr Lewis did not hear from Ms Ghent because her lawyers did not submit a sworn statement from her in advance of the hearing.
