LOS ANGELES (AP) — “Empire” star Terrence Howard is scheduled to return to a Los Angeles courtroom Thursday for the continuation of a hearing to try to undo a settlement in his most-recent divorce.

Howard claims ex-wife Michelle Ghent extorted him to sign a 2012 agreement that gave her to spousal support and other financial benefits. The Oscar-nominated actor claims Ghent threatened to leak personal information, including images of him naked and a sex tape, if he didn’t meet her terms.
