Actor, Terrence Howard is being accused of brutally beating ex-wife, Michelle Ghent while on vacation in Costa Rica. TMZ reports that Terrence only retaliated against Michelle after she maced him, his daughter and another family member.
This isn’t the first time Terrence has been accused of domestic violence. In 2011, allegations emerged in court papers during his divorce from Ghent. Michelle reported several instances of domestic violence throughout their marriage, and on December 5, 2011 a judge granted her a restraining order based on her claims.
It is unclear why Michelle opted to vacation with Terrence this time around, but it seems she is heading back to court for a restraining order. We wish her well.
