Things aren’t looking too good between actor Terrence Howard and estranged wife Michelle Howard. After getting married in a private ceremony last year the couple have not only split up but are at odds with each other. Actually, things are worst!
Michelle has filed a restraining order against the actor, claiming he was physically and verbally abusive towards her. Howard was then ordered, early Tuesday morning, to stay 100 yards away from Mrs. Howard.
Although the actor has since denied all allegations, this isn’t the first time Michelle has accused the actor of abuse. Back in January, just 1 year after getting married, Michelle filed for divorce sighting a long list of abuse allegations and misconduct.
Actor and Academy Award Nominee Terrence Howard revealed Monday, on a promotional tour for the biopic “Winnie” in which he plays Nelson Mandela, that he secretly wed girlfriend Michelle Ghent back in January.
In an interview with Anderson Cooper at the Cannes Film Festival Howard stated, “To come here and be with my wife, it’s the best feeling in the world.”
Back in 2005 Howard split from then wife Lori McComma of 13 years, the couple have 3 children together.
Terrence Howard revealing to The New York Times how he wrote the song “No. 1 Fan” from his new album about his ex-wife stated, “I wrote that song as a stalker. It was raining, and I was sitting there in front of the house, watching her come home from a date after we were divorced. I was imagining what she did on this date, and watching her giving him a kiss. I went home and wrote this song.”
I’m guessing this one was a messy divorce and one he wasn’t ready to let go of. It takes a real man to be able to admit something like this and then write a song about it for the world to hear.
