Terrence Howard Under Criminal Investigation For Tax Evasion

Uh oh, looks like another “Empire” star is in some serious trouble. According to the latest reports by The Blast, actor Terrence Howard is currently being investigated by the federal government for criminal tax evasion.

In court documents obtained by the news site, the feds believe Howard, his third wife Mira Howard, and Universal Bridges Inc. (a company owned by Mira) have possibly committed financial crimes. It was said that the actor has hired a high profile white collar criminal attorney to defend him in the investigation which stems out of the United States Attorney’s Office in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania.

No further details were shared but The Blast reports Howard and his fiancée became aware they were under investigation on May 20, 2019. Now, as many of know, Howard has had tax issues over the years. He was hit with a tax lien back in April by the State of California Franchise Tax Board for a total $143,538.61. The lien stems from taxes Howard reportedly owes from 2010.

On top of that, he was also hit with liens from the government back in 2010 for $1.1 million and in 2006 for over $600,000.

This latest situation comes just as the attention has lifted off of actor Jussie Smollett who had been making headlines for his brutal attack case, which many people believed he orchestrated. However, after further investigation, all charges against him were dropped.

Despite that, just recently it was confirmed that he will not be coming back on the hit series “Empire.”
