Terrence Howard faces domestic violence suit
Empire and Iron Man star Terrence Howard has been accused of domestic violence by his ex partner, Michelle Ghent. An alleged abuse incident occurred in a Costa Rica rental home in 2013, The International Business Times reported.
Legal documents filed in Los Angeles revealed that in July 2013, Howard beat Ghent within an inch of her life – leaving her with a black eye, contusions, and swelling. The lawsuit also claims that Howard published false accusations via his social media accounts, claiming that the plaintiff sent death threats to the actor and his family.
Since their divorce in May 2013, the ex couple has been involved in a series of ugly legal battles. In April, TMZ reports revealed that the star was forced to pay a large amount of money to Ghent after she allegedly blackmailed him with indecent videos and nude photos.
