Terrence Howard has finally put his bitter divorce behind him - the marriage has been deemed officially over by a judge.

Michelle Ghent submitted legal papers to end the union in February, 2011, days after the couple celebrated its first wedding anniversary.

They have been embroiled in a nasty court battle ever since, but they are now single again after a judge finalised divorce proceedings earlier this week (begs06May13).

Howard has been ordered to pay $5,800 (£3,741) a month in spousal support for the next three years, but has kept his properties. Ghent was allowed to keep a Bmw gifted to her by the Red Tails star, according to Tmz.com.
