There’s not much worse than celebrity domestic violence charges. A house fire, maybe? Seriously, if we could pay to have someone Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind away everything Mel Gibson did between 2009 and May 2011, we would. Oh, how we would! Meanwhile, Terrence Howard‘s wife Michelle Ghent has leveled some pretty heinous domestic violence allegations against the Iron Man actor, in addition to securing a restraining order against him. Some of Michelle’s claims include allegations that Howard hit her in the face, chipping her tooth with his wedding ring, and made threats against her life, including, “If you tell anyone about my personal business, I will kill you and no one will ever know.” Ugh, you can’t unread that sentence, can you?
Ghent filed for divorce back in February 2011 after the two wed in January 2010. Terrence also was arrested back in 2001 for an alleged assault on his then-wife Lori McCommas, whom the actor was married to from 1989 to 2001, than again from 2003 to 2005. Terrence has denied all allegations, and claims that Ghent said she would “release private materials to 3rd parties for her own personal financial gain” until the actor paid her. Hmm, is celebrity blackmail any better? Let’s consider the question while we treat ourselves to a nice glass of eye bleach.
