Lafayette Hill resident Terrence Howard is officially a single man after settling his divorce with Michelle Ghent. The settlement, obtained by TMZ, shows that Howard came out on top. He'll retain both houses in PA and his 25 bank accounts.

Ghent gets about $5,800 in spousal support per month for the next three years, a sum TMZ points out is not all that much considering the wealth of the "Red Tails" star.

Ghent and Howard started divorce proceedings in 2011, a scant year after they were married, with Ghent accusing Howard of domestic abuse, while Howard claimed Ghent was a racist.

Next up for Howard is West Philly native Lee Daniel's "The Butler, starring Forest Whitaker and a whole host of other stars in the story of Cecil Gaines, a White House Butler who served as a butler in the White House from 1952 to 1986.
