Terrence Howard has been accused by his ex-wife of beating her badly during a heated argument in Costa Rica ... TMZ has learned.

Michelle Ghent -- who divorced Terrence in May but hooked up with him again recently ... took a trip with Terrence and several of his family members to Costa Rica last week.  Sources say an argument erupted and she claims Terrence beat her up.

We've learned Terrence claims Michelle maced him, his adult daughter and another family member.  Police were called and reports were taken.

Sources say Terrence made up the mace story to cover his brutality.  Other sources connected to Terrence say Michelle is lying about the actor physically abusing her.

We've learned Michelle is going to court in an attempt to get a restraining order ... forcing Terrence to stay clear of her.

TMZ previously reported ... Michelle has accused Terrence of slugging her in the face and neck.  She also claimed the brutality started just 7 days after they were married.

I'm sure she'll forget all about the brutality(?) for some money.

Zero sympathy. Plenty of men in the sea and she goes back to an abuser? Nope.

Sounds like dinner over our house.


Old man strangling his alcoholic, loud mouthed wife.


Getting beaten by his brother.


Everyone screaming, jumping in.


8-year-old running away - and to snort/inject glue.

A goodly amount of money will change hands and everybody will forget about the whole thing . . . until he either beats her (or another woman) again.

Our old lady was the best, the absolute best.


At getting rid of arriving police:


"Merely a beef, Officers - much less than a actual misdemeanor."


Opens wounds, blood, veins hanging out, etc...


Officers nodding and leaving...


In OUR hometown you tell the police the nature of the infraction -


Got outta there before they could kill me.


Tell the police it was "just another accident."
