Terrence Howard’s estranged wife Michelle Howard got a restraining order against the actor this morning, claiming he beat her and threatened to take her life. According to TMZ, Michelle Howard, insists that the 42-year-old “Law and Order” star repeatedly battered and abused her.

Michelle filed court documents claiming Terrence began beating her up just seven days after they were married in January 2010.

Michelle claims Terrence ‘slugged me across my face and neck’ and threatened to throw her off a balcony. She also says the violence continued throughout their marriage with Terrence allegedly committing violent acts as a matter of course.

She also claims that he smacked her in the face and chipping her tooth with his wedding ring, threw her down to the ground in a parking lot and told her: ‘I’ll hit a woman quicker than I’d hit a man.’

He is also alleged to have told her: ‘If you tell anyone about my personal business, I will kill you and no one will ever know’ before screaming: ‘B*tch, walk home. That’s my car, I pay for it.’

This morning, an LA County Superior Court judge granted Michelle a temporary restraining order preventing Howard from going near her or contacting her until their next court hearing.

Terrence married Ghent, his second wife, in 2010 but by February of 2011 the 33-year-old commercial production employee had already filed for divorce.
