Terrence Howard to Cops:

My Wife's Extorting Me

And I Have Her On Tape!!!

Terrence Howard filed a police report with the LAPD Monday, claiming his estranged wife is extorting him, and we're told he presented a shocking audio tape as proof.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Howard and his lawyer went to the LAPD to file the crime report.  Howard claims Michelle Ghent Howard is squarely demanding money from him, in return for not making a Terrence sex tape and other embarrassing things public.

The former couple is in an epically bitter divorce battle. Among many things, Terrence claims Michelle is a racist who threatened to have him killed ... by the Russians.

The LAPD had no official comment, but we're told cops are in possession of the audio tape and they are investigating the extortion claim.

Michelle's attorney had no comment.

When will you black men ever learn? You gt what you deserve when you marry outside your race. These white women do not care about you! You are only a dollar sign! Learn from the fools who has been sucked dry before you. Come back home my brother!

Awww Terrence, I thought you had checked out this chick BEFORE you married??!! Now you're just finding out that she's a racist and wants to have you killed by the Russians?? Do you think the police will arrest her even with your evidence?? Did your attorney just give them a copy of the tape and NOT the original??? Hopefully this time you will try trusting a REAL woman... maybe even a sista!!! These are for real comments and not sarcasim!!! I wish you HAPPINESS in your future!!!!

If she's racist, she shouldn't have married a black man. Or mixed, he's always looked more mixed with his light brown eyes.
