Academy Award-nominated American actor Terrence Howard is facing divorce for the third time. His wife Michelle Ghent filed papers yesterday citing irreconcilable differences , after just one year of marriage. ( I guess in Hollywood that must be equal to 10 years ).Michelle Ghent is asking for spousal support and for her legal fees to be paid.
This will be the third time that Howard has divorced. He was married to Lori McCommas for 14 years,Howard and his wife divorced in 2003 and remarried again in 2005 and then of course divorced again.
In February 2009 it was reported on The Smoking Gun that Howard was arrested in 2001 for a variety of charges related to a violent attack on his estranged wife, including simple assault, terrorist threats, harassment and stalking. According to police reports, he arrived at her house after an argument on the phone, forced entry into her home by breaking in doors, and chased her into the back yard where he punched her twice in the face with a closed fist. The violent attack ended when Howard’s brother stopped it. In 2002 he pleaded guilty to disturbing the peace.
