Terrence Howard’s Estranged Wife Wins Restraining Order Against Actor

Truth rating: 10

By Shari Weiss


A judge has ordered Terrence Howard to stay away from his estranged wife, 10 months after she filed for divorce.

Michelle Ghent‘s petition for a restraining order claimed that Howard repeatedly abused her during their one-year marriage and recently threatened to kill her.

Howard insisted in his own court filing that he never threatened Ghent and hadn’t even been in touch with her.

But on Tuesday, Judge Scott Gordon granted Ghent a temporary restraining order.

The issue will be revisited in a court hearing on January 17.

Ghent filed for divorce in February, citing irreconcilable differences.
