My Wife is Ruining My Career!

Terrence Howard says he can't get work because everyone is scared to hire him after his estranged wife alleged he violently abused her.
TMZ has obtained new documents in the nasty divorce between Terrence and Michelle Howard. Michelle has accused Terrence of smacking her in the face and chipping her tooth with his wedding ring, slugging her in the face and neck and threatening to throw her off a balcony ... the list goes on.
Terrence has denied all the allegations, but he says, "I am gravely concerned that her actions have had an incredibly negative effect on my career and my ability to obtain future work as an actor."
Terrence's agent, Jim Toth -- Reese Witherspoon's hubby -- submitted a declaration in which he says Terrence has not received any "suitable offers" since the allegations were made, and he only pulled in $60,000 for his last project which ended in September.
