Master P was a true No Limit soldier Tuesday morning in an L.A. courtroom, where he marched in without an attorney to face off with his estranged wife over a restraining order.
TMZ broke the story ... Sonya Miller accused Master P of being verbally and physically abusive. In court, she went even further ... getting on the stand and telling the judge she'd heard that Master P had taken a hit out on her.
The hearing got off to a rocky start when Master P strolled into court sans attorney, but with several of his kids ... 90 minutes late! The judge told him the children needed to wait outside, and then scolded P for his tardiness.
Master P said he didn't even know the hearing was going down, until TMZ called him about the restraining order. Things got more heated when Sonya interrupted a convo between P and the judge ... and Sonya was an emotional wreck while testifying.
They're on a break now, but they'll be back in court this afternoon.
