This is a pretty tricky case.
As we previously reported, Ms. Ghent accused the actor of violently assaulting her while the two were on a family vacation in Costa Rica. The celeb’s ex claimed he strangled her and even threatened to kill her. Mr. Howard claims the fight was mutual.
Despite all that, it appears Michelle is throwing out the case… for now.
The outlet claims Ghent simply doesn’t have the money to pay for her attorney’s astronomical fees. The ex-wife is also concerned about having Terrence’s kids testify as witnesses — she wants to avoid that emotional trauma at all costs.
A source goes to on to claim there was no settlement involved in her decision.
What’s interesting is, Michelle wants the suit dismissed without prejudice… which means she can refile later on. Very curious.
We’ll keep you updated as this case progresses.
