Terrence Howard‘s ex-wife is calling off the dogs — dropping the lawsuit accusing him of assaulting her during a vacation in Costa Rica … TMZ has learned.
According to court docs, Michelle Ghent filed a request to dismiss the whole case. As we first reported, Michelle sued back in 2015 … claiming he strangled her during an argument and threatened to kill her. Terrence claimed it was mutual combat.
A source connected to the case tells us this was no settlement though — Terrence didn’t pay her a dime. We’re told lawyers’ fees on both sides just got astronomical, and Michelle decided to walk away from the legal fight.
The only catch is Michelle wants the suit dismissed without prejudice — meaning she could refile it in the future. Maybe she’ll hit the lottery.
