Tracy Morgan has married his fiancee of four years. According to the 46-year-old actor-comedian’s publicist, Morgan wed Megan Wollover on Sunday with their 2-year-old daughter in attendance. It is Morgan’s second marriage. The ceremony came 14 months after the June 2014 crash that seriously injured Morgan and killed a fellow comedian when their limousine was struck by a truck on the New Jersey Turnpike. The former ‘‘30 Rock’’ star has mostly been out of sight since the crash as he recuperated from his injuries. But NBC recently announced that on Oct. 17 he will guest host ‘‘Saturday Night Live,’’ where he was a cast member from 1996-2003.

Judge rules for Howard

A judge overturned Terrence Howard’s divorce settlement with his second wife Monday, finding the actor was coerced into signing the settlement by her threats to leak private details. Superior Court Judge Thomas Trent Lewis’ ruling means Howard and his ex-wife, Michelle Ghent, will now have to renegotiate the financial terms of their divorce. The ruling also ends, for now, any claims Ghent has to Howard’s earnings from the hit TV show ‘‘Empire.’’ ‘‘The evidence of extortion or duress was unrebutted,’’ Lewis said. Howard contended he signed a 2012 settlement to end his marriage to
Ghent out of fear she would leak private details about him, including phone sex recordings with other women and a video of him dancing naked in a bathroom.
