Terrence Howard's estranged wife has obtained a temporary restraining order against him and has the documents detailing her claims of death threats and beatings by the actor.

According to the legal papers, Michelle Howard claims Terence began abusing her just seven days after their January 2010 wedding.


Michelle, who filed for divorce in February, states that the Hustle & Flow star punched her, threw her down and even chipped her tooth with his wedding ring. On one occasion he shouted, "I'll hit a woman quicker than I'd hit a man."

Michelle even referenced in her successful application for the restraining order, noting that we’d published a threatening message Howard had left on the voicemail of a total stranger.

As we exclusively revealed, the Oscar-nominated actor left a message on a stranger's voicemail on August 31, in which he identifies himself before going off on an angry tirade about the stranger calling his wife.

"N**ga, you been calling my wife... If you call my wife again I'm going to come to your house and I'm going to cut your f***ing throat," Terrence said in the message. "Understand that. I'm gonna tell you this one time. You call my wife again, I'm going to kill you."

In response to today’s dramatic allegations, the 42-year-old actor denied ever harming his ex.

The judge sided with Michelle and granted the TRO.
