*Despite reports that Terrence Howard and his third wife Mira Pak got divorced shortly after the birth of their son Qirin earlier this year, Howard and Pak made a public appearance together and engaged in a bit of PDA at the season 2 premiere of “Empire,” The YBF.com reports.

The NY Daily News confirmed that news of a divorce being granted on July 27 was revealed during a separate court proceeding between Terrance and his second wife Michelle Ghent, who he claimed was trying to extort him.

According to the news outlet, divorce paperwork revealed Pak filed for the secret split back in March, when she was pregnant with the couple’s first child. She cited irreconcilable differences and claimed she and Howard separated in August 2014.

Terrence recently attempted to debunk “rumors” of a divorce between him and Mira by posting pics of them with their baby on Facebook – suggesting that they are a loving, happy couple. As the report notes, Howard is not one for sharing intimate moments on social media, so many believe this is a desperate PR move to fix his reputation. His latest legal woes have created a lot of bad publicity which was allegedly affecting his “Empire” on-screen time.

Lee Daniels and Taraji P. Henson also attended the season 2 premiere, and the cast hosted a lively panel discussion after an explosive screening of the premiere episode.

Lee raised a few eyebrows when he made a big fuss about naturally curly-haired Serayah, who plays Tiana Brown on the show. Daniels said that the role requires for Serayah to rock her natural hair at all times – no weaves and no hair straightening products. Why? Because as the report suggests, Lee believes middle America can better relate to a natural-haired black girl.
