Oscar-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.
In her new sworn statement, she said Howard first denied any knowledge of the phone numbers when she confronted him during a trip to Toronto. He then flew into a rage when she called the women on speaker phone and “confirmed” his flirting, she said.
“If this is goodbye, then I hate everything and will now use my gifts to destroy mankind,” an April 27 text attributed to Howard reads. “I will become Satan Himself! You were my last chance to love. I will now Hate in all things and seek my vengeance upon Humanity for all the wrongs ever done to me!! … The Antichrist is Here!”
Of course, PhillyMag has reported on Michelle Ghent’s allegations over the last month, interviewing another of Howard’s exes, and tracking down other stories of violence featuring the Philly actor. The list of allegations, it seems, continues to grow.
