Terrence Howard’s ex-wife Michelle Ghent is set to appear in court this morning to ask for a restraining order against Howard.
Ghent claimed that the Dead Man Down actor physically abused her during an argument in Costa Rica last week, but Howard is denying all allegations.
The 44-year-old claimed that during last week’s argument, Ghent threatened to kill him and his family. The actor also claimed that his ex-wife maced him, his kids, and son-in-law.
Michelle and Howard ended their marriage last May, but went on a family trip together last week.
Terrence is also set to sit before the judge, and according to TMZ, will read text messages from Ghent last May. “I would start hiding if I were u,” she allegedly wrote in one text. “Be careful when u leave your place. U should move,” she allegedly wrote in another.
