Terrence Howard

So, I Married a Violent Racist

12/20/2011 5:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Terrence Howard
says his estranged wife HATES black people ... and she would often call him names like, "monkey" and "n**ger" ... this according to new court docs obtained by TMZ.

Howard is in the middle of perhaps the nastiest divorce we've ever seen -- with both sides accusing the other of extreme violence and other hateful conduct.

Now, Howard has filed a new declaration in L.A. County Superior Court -- claiming Michelle inexplicably turned from a "loving, gentle" person ... into a monster ... who once threatened to have him killed by some violent Russians.

In the docs, Howard notes Michelle is NOT black -- and claims that when she would get upset, she would scream things like, "[I] never wanted to marry a n**ger in the first place" and "[I] definitely didn't want to be the step mother of some n**ger kids."

As TMZ first reported, Howard claims Michelle is trying to extort him over private recordings she allegedly stole from his personal computer -- and in the new docs, T.H. alleges his wife threatened to have him "clipped" if he went to police.

Howard says his wife once bragged, "I have a lot of Russian friends who would do it as a favor."

Howard also claims Michelle has jealousy issues -- and TWICE attacked him with a bottle after accusing Howard of talking with other women. Howard claims he never struck back.

Terrence has asked the court to issue a restraining order against Michelle. A hearing is set for January 17.

We reached out to Michelle's lawyer -- so far, no response.

That's what those black famous men get for dating and marrying out of their race. I don't feel sorry for him. She needs to take everything he got.

Excuse me! but "TH" it's bad enough that you know who is the True God!!! and as you must know He hates Divorces, The Marriage Vowel must be honored by both parties! you knew exactly who you were marrying long before now! just because you have made a celebrated name for yourself!!! It does not excuses you from honoring your vowel.

Whatever happened to Terence Howard's statement that he would only marry someone who looked like him, was as attractive as he is? What was he thinking?

I really don't know what to say about this one.

But, I hope that they both work out their differences. She needs to stop discriminating against blacks and other minorities. And, he needs to respect women often.

Know someone who needs thicker hair? Go to Ebay and get "Simplyshelli" hair serum. You add it into any shampoo. It makes your hair super thick. Seriously

You should marry for love. Race shouldn't be the deciding factor.

the judge declined his request for a restraining order even after reading TH declaration.. and he granted his wife one? Isn't it obvious ~ He's pullin out the race card, not gonna work this time! He's the racist one, he don't like his own. She aint White either! Just cuz she can brush her hair long, don't mean she automatically white. BTW- he got no $$.. and if she was after that she would've stayed longer... She couldn't take the back hand? Or open fist of fury!

I feel no pain... sorry... they think other races of women are more qualified, professional, beautiful, and/or loving than their own, so you get what you pay for... and don't come running back to the race of women you originally overlooked... #dumbblackazz
