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.

Extremely toxic relationship. I think the woman knows that an abuse allegation would destroy him, and terence is a jackass so I don't feel sorry for him. That's what he gets for marrying a white bitch. sell out.

Well, he monetarily beat his wife with his pre-nup when they got divorced.
.
I guess now she will even that out a little with the cash he'll have to fork over to make her forget about this little incident.

The next time he's angry, he should try to restrain his fists and just sing. Anyone who has actually heard his album will know that his singing is a much better way to inflict pain on people who make him mad.

She claimed he slugged her 7 days after they got married, AND YET she stayed with him??? Not only that, she went back with him after they divorced? Not believing that either.

There's 3 sides to every story. His, hers and the truth. Not sure who to believe at this point.

Another OJ? Handsome, charismatic man in public, dangerous violent monster in private. Run fast Michelle, but be sure to expose him for the jerk he is in court.

If he has already physically abused her one then it's not so far fetched to believe that he could have done this again.
