Actor Terrence Howard’s saga with his ex-wife Michelle gets stranger by the minute. After his estranged wife released reports that he has threatened to kill her, a judge has ordered Howard to stay 100 yards away from her. The Oscar-nominated star of Iron Man and Hustle & Flow is denying his wife’s allegations, stating that she has threatened to destroy his career.
The order by Superior Court Judge Scott Gordon was handed down on Tuesday after Michelle claimed that Howard started beating her right after their marriage in January, 2010. She filed for divorce a year later, stating that Howard began beating her just seven days after they were married, at one point chipping her tooth.
The restraining order remains in effect until a hearing, set to take place on January 17.
Michelle Howard says that she remains in constant fear of Terrence and that she has health issues resulting from her fear of him. Howard says that he has never threatened his wife, and that she has threatened that she would release private details if he doesn’t pay her a large sum of money.
“I live in constant fear of Michelle’s endeavors to ruin my reputation; even providing this declaration may well lead to my being subjected to a paparazzi blitz which would not be good for my career,” Howard wrote.
