Terrence Howard testified his relationship with the ex-wife he's now suing was so bad, she kicked food all over him in a jealous rage over a make-out scene with Jennifer Hudson.

Howard -- who's trying to dismantle their settlement agreement because he claims Michelle Ghent extorted him -- testified Friday they were in South Africa when he was filming "Winnie Mandela" and they got into a huge fight because she became jealous the script called for him to make out with Jennifer Hudson. He says Michelle flew into a rage, hurling food all over him.

He also testified they were no longer sexually compatible once he tried becoming a Jehovah's Witness and used "applied Bible principles" to his sex life.  

He explained he was trying to rein in his urges. As he put it, he was trying to go from "apple pie a la mode" to just plain "apple pie," and she wasn't biting.

Howard also said things got so bad he faked a suicide attempt by telling her he swallowed a bottle of pills. He says he did not actually do it.
