Terrance Howard a Wife Beater...

English: Oscar-nominated actor Terrence Howard...Image via Wikipedia

A judge has ordered Terrence Howard to stay 100 yards away from his estranged wife after she claimed the Oscar-nominated actor repeatedly threatened and hit her during their marriage.
The actor denies the allegations.
Superior Court Judge Scott Gordon granted the stay-away order sought by Michelle Howard on Tuesday after she filed a lengthy declaration alleging abuse began within a week of the couple's January 2010 marriage. Michelle Howard filed for divorce a year later.
The restraining order remains in effect until a Jan. 17 court hearing.
She claims Howard, 42, has repeatedly hit her and that he threatened her in a text message last week. She stated in a sworn declaration that she is in constant fear of Howard and has chronic health issues caused by the actor's treatment.
Howard in his own sworn declaration wrote that he has never threatened his wife and that she has repeatedly vowed to ruin his reputation and release private details.
"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.
Michelle Howard wrote that Howard has hit her several times and threatened to throw her from a hotel balcony in South Africa last year. She included a text message she said he sent to her on Thursday in which he begged her not to pursue the divorce and threaten his career, ending the missive, "I can't promise how I will respond."
One of these days people will realize that, not only is everything they do subject to someone whipping out a phone and taping it, but anything in writing will likely stay in writing.
Howard wrote in his filing that he immediately followed up the message with another text stating that he wasn't threatening her.
Of course not. That was obvious by how he had to clarify in yet another text that he wasn't, in fact, threatening her. One thing this guy is certainly guilty of is extremely dumb behavior.
Howard appeared in the first "Iron Man" film and received an Oscar nomination in 2005 for his role in "Hustle and Flow." Neither Howard or his attorney have spoken publicly about the suit.
