Did you know you could have a third ex-wife while still divorcing the second? Terence Howard is STILL in the middle of divorce proceedings with SECOND ex Michelle Ghent. At a hearing on Monday, testimony revealed that their relationship was so messy that not even Luscious Lyon’s beloved Baby Wipes could clean it up. New testimony spilled even more crazy shit, including suicide threats, lots of drugs, blackmail, and comparisons to the Holocaust. It makes perfect sense that Terence went into acting because he is dramatic as hell. He compared the possibility of giving in to alleged blackmail threats from Ghent to “the Jews giving in to the Germans [and going] to Auschwitz.” Oh, dear.
If I’ve learned anything from television courtroom dramas (and certain ne’er do well relatives’ court appearances), you don’t scream things at the judge. This is not going to help your case. You just make yourself look tapped, and cause the judge to hate you. Terence has apparently never watched a television courtroom drama (or acted in one?) because he kept yelling about how the hearing was an “ambush.” The judge told him to “learn some restraint” and “cool your jets.” Judge Gramps!
Testimony revealed that their 13-year-relationship (which has been over for two years) wasn’t the kind where you sit on the porch with your honey and chat up the paperboy. Terence admitted that they used weed, coke and ecstasy together, explaining “that was the only times [we were happy].” They also had a threesome. Eh, Hollywood right? Well, no, not when your then wife allegedly felt that she had to Mace you and your relatives during a trip to Costa Rica. So, they split. Twice.
Get yourself a soda and some chips, this is a lengthy one.
Recordings and texts introduced into testimony revealed Luscious was alternately suicidal and threatening after they ended it.
“I’m sitting here at lunch hoping you’ll call … every minute of every day I feel like putting an end to this miserable existence … every lie I’ve told to you are equal in my mind to putting bullets into a clip and firing them at my future. … I am devastated by my stupidity.”
“I couldn’t do anything but sit there [looking] at a f—ing razor blade … I just wanted to die … I’ll look for you in my next lifetime.”
“So if you are planning on living without me, you should have someone put me out of my misery.”
But then he went the “I’m not going to be ignored, Dan!” route.
“I will never allow another man to be with you. Whoever tried to take my life will lose his existence,” he wrote in one text. In another: “I will never allow a restraining order or anything to keep me from my wife.”
Terence also claimed to have been fearful of Michelle, stating that “she was continually attacking me.”
“I loved her and was also afraid of her,” he said under oath. “Love is a very complicated thing. … I was in love with the person who [was holding me] captive.”
He added that “the only time she wasn’t a threat … was when we were together.”
Ghent’s responses to Howard’s texts and phone calls were usually reminding him that he was an abusive wackjob.
“You’re a great guy – you can be … you are such a good manipulator. … I think you’re crazy … I’ve done things in defense because you’ve hurt me … that last time.”
In a recorded conversation admitted into evidence, Howard told his ex: “I’m a good man,” she responded, “I know. But you are also scary.”
Howard also admitted telling Ghent that he would leave his now THIRD ex-wife Mira Pak if she would come back to him. Howard and Pak married in 2013 (after dating for a month), had a kid this past June, and then divorced in July. DRAMZ. It’s surprising that the first ex-wife didn’t bust through a window at one point to reveal that Terence was once a woman. *cue dramatic music*
I’m not even going to bring up that numerous gay people couldn’t get legally married in this country until 6/26/15, and this asshole is putting his third divorce cart before his second divorce horse. “Sanctity of marriage,” my fat Irish ass.
