Terrence Howard Denies Domestic Violence Against Exes
Terrence Howard is denying claims that he physically abused either of his ex wives. [Terrence married his first wife, Lori McCommas, in 1994. They have three children together. They divorced in 2003, but remarried in 2005. They subsequently divorced for a second time in 2007. He married his second wife, Michelle Ghent. She filed for divorce in February 2011 and filed for a restraining order in December 2011, accusing Terrence of being physically abusive toward her. Their divorce was finalized in May 2013.
Terrence and Mira Pak married in late 2013 They have two sons.] On Saturday (March 26th), the Empire actor hopped on twitter, writing a series of tweets defending himself. He writes:
I’ve never been abusive to anyone in my entire life. I have loved and paid the price for love. I am the same loving being since day 1!
When I say that I’ve made mistakes, it is not regarding violence but judgement. Trusting the wrong people!
I firmly believe that every action has an equal and opposite reaction. Eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth. Kiss for a ?
This double standard that has permitted abusive women to feel that they can assault a man and not reap where they have sowed is wrong!
The cyber space abuse and bullying that has gone unanswered has come to an end!
You come for me, I come for you. Eye for an eye!
Having an altercation is very different than abuse… and for the record I never punched her in the face get the facts straight.
He also added,
Terrence’s tweets are reportedly in response to a report about his relationships with his two former wives:
In 2001 he admitted to hitting his first wife, Lori, and in 2013 his second wife Michelle Ghent was granted a restraining order against him on the grounds that he hit and kicked her during a family vacation and threatened to kill her. (Howard has claimed self-defense in regards to the Ghent altercation and in a 2015 divorce hearing his lawyer argued that he signed their spousal support agreement “under duress.” The judge called Howard a “bully” but ruled in the actor’s favor. The decision is currently under appeal.)
