Terrence Howard - Terrence Howard 'heartbroken by domestic abuse claims

Terrence Howard is ''heartbroken'' over domestic abuse allegations against him.

The 'Butler' star is upset at claims made by ex-wife Michelle Ghent and strongly denies them.

The couple, who divorced in May, took a reunion trip to Costa Rica last week where she has claimed the actor physically abused her.

Howard told ET Online: ''Unfortunately I've tried to help people and it's not necessarily in the same enlightened path, of trying to help themselves,''

He continued: ''We're divorced now, and she should stay that way. And I just wish the best for her, but as far as me harming somebody ... I really can't harm a fly. It's completely against my spirit, but I'm so heartbroken, that you can see that doing it on a night like this is only for an attempt to try and hurt me.''

TMZ reports the couple both filed police reports following the incident.

Terrence insisted: ''[The allegations are] completely wrong, unfortunately, there are some documents that will come out and will tell everything that has occurred, but I never laid my hands on that woman. Or any woman, that's just not my way.''

Meanwhile, Michelle is going to court in an attempt to get a restraining order forcing Terrence to stay clear of her.
