Terrence Howard threatened suicide with X-Acto blade, called himself ‘Satan,' Court Papers
NYDailyNewsOscar-nominated actor Terrence Howard allegedly threatened suicide with an X-Acto blade, threw his wife on a hardwood floor and called himself “Satan” during a marital meltdown in Toronto, new court paperwork obtained by the Daily News states.
Now appearing with Oprah Winfrey in the No. 1 movie “The Butler,” Howard purportedly went berserk when a planned reconciliation with his then-estranged wife, Michelle, ended in a fight over phone numbers for six women found in his bag on April 23.
Michelle Howard made the blockbuster claims in her new filing after a judge granted her a temporary restraining order last month following a nuclear dispute with the actor in Costa Rica in July.
The “Hustle & Flow” actor allegedly erupted, shattered his wife’s computer by tossing it out a window, “grabbed” her arm, caused her to fall and then lifted her off the ground by her sweats and T-shirt so he could throw her back down again, the documents claim.
“He grabbed an X-Acto blade and put it to his wrist as if to cut himself,” her filing states. He then reached for the “belt on his robe and displayed attempts to hang himself.” According to Michelle, the star then threatened her life.
