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.

If she was truly racist she wouldn't have even dated him, much less married him. I think it is more that once people reach the point of hating their partner they will say all kinds of hateful things. Calling a black person a n****r is a pretty easy and obvious road to take once the gloves come off.

Man! That's alot of hatred in the comments Michelle alledgly made. I think Terrance Howard is shaping the truth to fit his reality by leaving out some vital details to play victim. He probably met his match, swing for swing and punch for punch.

I don't think she's a racist cause if she was then she would have never been with him in the first place. White people do us wrong anyway so why in the hell would you go marry one!

Wow, look at all the white folks racing to her defense. Typical. Some things just never change. never mind that Howard is bi-racial, white folks would practically kill their children to defend one of their own. Its their nature! Their logic: all black or bi-racial people lie, all gold digging vindictive whites tell the truth. We get it!

Put your name here?    

He says his wife HATES black people. He HATES black people to, that's why he married that WHITE chick. I hope she takes EVERYTHING he's got and some. "Throw a house ***** in a ditch half pint B*tch".

She's entitled to her opinion and she's right. I like Russians because they are all white.

Russia spans from Europe to Asia and the Middle East. You probably have all different looking natives there. I think the people on the border of Mongolia and China probably look Asian. Maybe the people from Siberia look Asian.

Terrance,
R u attempting to rally the troops in the black community by revealing the alledged comments(calling you a ******) made by your wife? If so WE IN THE BLACK COMMUNITY COULD CARE LESS! Would it have been less painful if she were black and used the term to reference you? If your wife called you a ****** than get over it because you open the door for those kinds of issues when you crossed over!Hopefully you will continue to stay far away from the sistas!
