The bitter divorce proceedings between Terrence Howard and soon to be ex Michelle Ghent have grown into a full-blown public spectacle, revealing some seriously unsavory dynamics of their troubled relationship. The former Iron Man star and restraining order recipient has now filed such an order against his wife Michelle, accusing her being a violent racist. Allegedly, new documents filed by the actor claim that Michelle Ghent “hates” Black people and was prone to calling Howard names like “monkey” and “ni**er.”
Howard claims Michelle transformed from appearing to be a “loving, gentle” person … into a monster … who once threatened to have him killed by some violent Russians, TMZ reports. Howard explains that when Ghent would get upset, she would scream foolery such as, “[I] never wanted to marry a ni**er in the first place” and “[I] definitely didn’t want to be the step mother of some ni**er kids.”
As if the treachery wasn’t bad enough, the Hustle & Flow star claims Michelle is trying to extort him over private recordings she allegedly stole from his personal computer, and has threatened to have Howard “clipped” if he went to police. Howard contends that his wife once bragged, “I have a lot of Russian friends who would do it as a favor.”
Howard also noted that Michelle is a jealous heffa who attacked him two times with a bottle when she suspected him of cavorting with other women. Ghent’s lawyers have yet to respond to these newest accusation but they’re no doubt preparing for the restraining order hearing which is set for January 17.
