Terrence Howard

So, I Married a Violent Racist

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.

When the going gets tough, play the "race card". Yeah, that'll work.

I don't believe what he is saying. He's afraid he's going to be exposed, he's a nut case for sure.

"Guess his wife won't be voting for Obama again? (Then again, neither will I and I'm not a racist.)"


HUH? ARE YOU TELLING ME THAT ALL BLACKS VOTED FOR OBAMA? HONEY, IF YOU WANT TO TALK POLITICS GOES TO ANOTHER THREAD. WHAT THE HECK DOES OBAMA HAVE TO DO WITH IT?

ANYHOO, TERRANCE IS AN IDIOT. HE'S GOT COMPLEX ISSUES. HE DOESN'T LIKE HIS OWN BLACK SKIN. THAT IS HIS PROBLEM-NOT HIS SOON TO BE EX-WIFE. I CAN'T STAND IDIOTS LIKE HOWARD AND HALLE. DO YOU SEE THE SIMILARITIES? THESE MALATTOS ARE ONLY BLACK WHEN IT SUITS THEM.

Good for you Terrence. You always wanted to step out with women of other races. That is your first requirement. So you think because you are some famous actor that the public still doesn't view you as a n*gg**? This is not a racist post, but me just being real. I am an african american sista and I know better than that. Look at Halle, when she broke up with her daughter's father, that was the first thing he called her. She was an N but he sure loved some N p*ssy enough to nut in it and produce a child. LMAO. Terrence, no pity here. You should've known better. Money does not give you a pass on racism. At the end of the day, you know what it is! Hell, people even poke fun at the d*mn president. LMAO

And as for you people who are saying he should stick to his own race?! Um if you mean the BLACK race we don't want him. The ****** race does though. Because he surely is a ******. By the way. ****** doesn't mean black it means ignorant. I hope she bleeds his self hating ass for half his worth, the house AND the dog.

I don't know why black men keep marrying these white women. Black men are so delusional about white women. White women are the most vendictive women ever! Black men get what they deserve when they step outside of their race!

Fake. First, she married him. And second, if he didn't go to the police/courts with her alleged violence until the divorce then treat him just like any woman who raises issues like this only in the divorce proceedings.

Poor Terrence,....at least he had the ballz to step up as a battered man,....so many don't, for instance that Amber chick from MTV who like to beat on her babby's daddy all the time. With the various roles Terrence has perfected,....he showed great restraint from not clocking Michelle. Terrence, honey,...the first time this bi*ch called you monley or ni**er, you should have left. She married the prolific actor with a prestigious reputation. You Terrence should have used this movie line from 'your' movie, called "Crash",....stare her straight in the face and tell her " You embarrass(sp) me". THAT is a great line,...
