While Oscar-nominated actor Terrence Howard is busy promoting his upcoming film “Lee Daniels’ The Butler,” his ex-wife is telling the police that he assaulted her while they were on vacation in Costa Rica.
As the story goes, Terrence Howard became officially divorced from his wife Michelle Ghent back in May. However, the two have been hooking up for some time since the divorce. They recently took a trip to the Latin American country where things quickly turned from rainbows and butterflies to black eyes and police reports. Ghent took the trip along with Howard and a few members of his family and things were all good until the former couple got into a heated argument that got physical.
Howard claimed Michelle Ghent maced him, his grown daughter, and another one of his family members. Sources close to the couple claimed Howard lied about the mace story to cover up the fact he was abusive towards Ghent. Other people claimed Ghent is lying about being physically abused by Howard in the first place. Michelle Ghent is currently in court seeking a restraining order against her ex-husband.
This isn’t the first time Michelle Ghent accused Terrence Howard of beating her. She first alleged he punched her in the face a week after they exchanged vows.
