According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Terrence’s ex is firing back at the actor in court. Michelle filed her response in the lawsuit originally brought by 20th Century Fox. The studio sued Terrence, his company Universal Bridges and Michelle. They said they owed Terrence money but Michelle had served them with a court order showing the actor was ordered to pay her $1.3 million.
Terrence says he appealed the decision and is still awaiting the outcome. He believes since he filed the appeal the original judgment is stayed, meaning Michelle cannot collect on the debt until the appeal is decided. 20th Century Fox asked the court to tell them who to pay.
In newly filed court documents, Michelle is firing back at Terrence and 20th Century Fox. She accuses Terrence of playing dirty games to drag out him having to pay the million owed. She says Terrence’s company is “knowingly and unreasonably delayed in asserting the cause of action contained in its cross-complaint, without good cause and under circumstances permitting and requiring diligence, and thereby prejudiced Michelle.”
Michelle accuses Terrence of being in contempt of court for not paying her the $1.3 million. She is asking the court to enter an order directing Terrence’s company to hand over any payments received from 20th Century Fox until the entire debt is paid off.
A judge has yet to rule.
