When it rains, it pours for Terrence Howard. One week after learning through the trades that his “Iron Man 2” role was given to Don Cheadle, the Oscar-nominated actor has been sued for alleged assault.

 

      Composer Andrew “Tex” Allen claims he was beaten up by Howard last winter while working together in Broadway’s Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, reports the New York Post. 

      The jazz pianist and brother of “Tin Roof” director, Debbie Allen, seeks $5 million in damages, according to the lawsuit.       

       He claims Howard stepped to him on Jan. 24 at about 2:30 p.m. as he was sitting at the piano inside of Walter Kerr Theatre.

      He said Howard punched him repeatedly in the face and head. The lawsuit does not state the reason for the alleged confrontation.
