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.

Many articles paint this guy out to be a real a..hole. She's psycho, he's a women beater.. sounds like they're perfect for each other. They should stay married.

LOL...So TMZ you delete people's Opinions?....If you don't want to hear our opinions then stop posting stories.

All i said was...why was she in sexual relationship with him from the beginning, if she didn't like black men. But i guess i can't speak my mind.

I wasn't on Chris Brown's side but I think Terrence should get more heat than Chris. 1.he's much older and should know better, 2. it's your fckn wife dude,3. you're bitch 4 that. just because his wife doesn't sing "Rude Boy" and a bunch of skanky tunes, with her legs open every time a camera flashes, doesn't mean she doesn't deserve the same sympathy.

If black men didn't learn anything from what happened to O.J. Simpson, then they should stop whining about the racist things these white women say & do to them. Let's be honest. White America is more anti-black now than before President Obama was elected. Trying to cultivate a healthy and lasting relationship between blacks and whites in America's current social climate is like trying to grow roses in mid-winter.

Howard's a good actor, but I don't believe a word he says. He was raised around racism, why would he marry a woman who feels that way? He has shown that he is one who has violent tendencies. He assaulted his ex-wife, a flight attendant, and this girl, he's the one with the problem.

Please this man is a serial marrier, he gets married every year with the same end results. His relationships always end sour and his wives always complain about domestic violence

Racists are some of the biggest IR daters...I know, it's weird, but true.
.
As for little missy going off on TH, it seems it was provoked by something he may have said and/or done, so no sympathy here. His history of emotional instability, making false claims of victimhood, and domestic violence doesn't help his case either.

I don't believe his story at all. As far as her being a racist I don't believe that either & I'm black (not that, that makes me an authority on racists but...) a real racist wouldn't even be caught around a person he/she despised & she had a relationship going on including sex? No way. If she did say all that racist stuff then she's the biggest loser & hyprocrite of all time. Racists are cowards anyway so if she did then who cares because she's the lowest of all life forms, if she didn't say it then he's an idiot. Which I believe the latter.
