Actor Terrence Howard has been accused of failing to hand over a portion of royalties to his former manager.
Victoria Frederick filed a lawsuit against the Iron Man star in Pennsylvania on Tuesday, claiming he owes her at least $145,000 in unpaid royalties.

Frederick is said to have begun looking after the actor’s working interests in the mid-2000s, and she claims Howard agreed to give her 10 per cent of all his earnings while she managed his career, as well as residuals for his roles in the movies she booked – even after she was no longer managing him.

Frederick alleges Howard refused to pay her commissions before and after her services were allegedly terminated last year, according to

She is seeking $137,000 in damages.
