Apprarently, Terrence Howard‘s portrayal of ‘Empire’s as Lucious Lyons isn’t too far from real life.

According to a lawsuit filed by his ex-wife, Michelle Ghent, Howard kicked, choked, dragged, and threatened to kill his former spouse during an altercation two years ago.

Michelle filed the suit against the actor Tuesday July 28 claiming he assaulted her in 2013.

In the civil complaint filed in Los Angeles, Michelle Howard claims the alleged assault took place while they were staying in a rental house in Costa Rica.

According to the complaint, on the evening of July 29, 2013, Howard “followed Plaintiff into the restroom of the rental house and punched her on the left side of her face. Defendant also grabbed Plaintiff by her neck and pushed her against the bathroom wall and strangled her for several seconds. He grabbed her neck again and pinned her against the shower glass and her head hit the wall”, when she tried to flee the room, leading the actor’s son-in-law Billy to intervene.

That's not all:

“While Billy tried to pry Defendant’s hands from Plaintiff’s neck, Defendant whispered to Plaintiff, ‘Remember what I told you in Bora Bora? That is what I’m gonna do,’ referring to a prior instance where Defendant told Plaintiff that her body would never leave the island,” states the complaint. “Plaintiff interpreted the reference to mean that Defendant was going to kill her.”
