Terrence Howard

Accused of Beating Ex-Wife

8/5/2013 11:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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.

Of course Terrence beat her. No doubt in my mind. If I'm on the jury, I'll vote Guilty before the first witness.

Terrence Howard domestic rap wow! Wife claims domestic violence after 7 days of marriage. He has a violent streak. That is why all his past relationships failed horribly. The past tells you there is something amiss with this man. If it is true he needs to be alone instead of destroying relationships. This case looks very serious may do time in jail.

Why did she go on a trip with him? She knows what he's like. Did she think he had changed? Somebody really needs to f'ck him up.

There's a very old saying that goes "fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me.

Shame on you for going back to him. Leopards do not change their spots and abusers usually don't stop abusing.

I am so sick of women being abused and then running back to their abusers once the bruises have faded. They make it hard for the ones with enough sense not to go back, to get help. People think, why bother, she's just going to go back to him because of the actions of people like Rihanna that keep going back for more.

Yeah, dated one of those types after my divorce. Never broke the Bro code though Simon. Sorry had to throw that zinger in.
Since that brief interlude into insane craziness, I've chosen to be more selective of the women I date or even associate with
The carnage of self entitlement, and most importantly her bringing nothing to the table but Breasts and vagina,
Mixed with a jaw dropping body and face,
The crazy outrageous sex for a while,
And their makeup sex is even crazier

The sex in retrospect isn't all that and a bag of chips when you weigh it against their dark side. Gave me shivering again thinking about it.
Good luck Terrence- learn your lesson.

wait a minute this is nuts... after a nasty divorce she hooks up with him (don't forget the part where they were all drunk and stupid)... then the crazy stories.
- He claims she maced him/which should be easily proved
- She claims he beat her, but instead of pressing charges she just wants a retraining order.
I'm not buying what either one of those nuts are selling.

So white people is he black again now? You know how you people do. Someone who looks like him is doing something good then "he's not black." As soon as they f up "he's black" who cares. OJ rings a bell.

He's been a woman beating loser for years now. No wonder he defends Chris Brown.

Stupidity on her part. You divorce him because he is beating your ass and then you get the bright idea to go on vacation with him and NOW you want a restraining order! Really?
