Judge gives Terrence Howard’s wife stay-away order
LOS ANGELES (AP) - A judge has ordered Terrence Howard to stay 100 yards away from his estranged wife after she claimed the actor repeatedly threatened her.
The Oscar-nominated actor denies in a sworn statement that he has ever threatened his wife, Michelle, and says he has tried to refrain from contacting her as they undergo a divorce.
Superior Court Judge Scott Gordon ordered Howard to not contact his estranged wife until a hearing Jan. 17.
Howard’s filing states he is afraid his reputation will be ruined because of the allegations.
The 42-year-old actor received an Oscar nomination for his role in “Hustle and Flow.”
