Michelle Ghent is expected to file a restraining order against ex-husband Terrence Howard after he reportedly beat her while they were on vacation in Costa Rica.
Though Ghent and Howard divorced back in May, she went on a vacation with him and his family to Costa Rica last week. Sources tell TMZ that Howard beat Ghent after they got into a heated argument. Howard then claims he was maced by Ghent, his adult daughter and another family member, though sources say he made up that story to make his attack seem less brutal. Police were called to the incident.
This isn’t the first time Howard has gotten in trouble for domestic violence. He was arrested in 2001 for assaulting, harassing and threatening his estranged wife Lori McCommas. As for Ghent, she already filed a restraining order against Howard in 2011 after she claimed he started physically abusing her since the beginning of their marriage in 2010.
