Actor Terrence Howard said he is “heartbroken” over recent allegations by ex-wife Michelle Ghent that he physically abused her during a trip last week.

“She’s not well and I hope that she can get well, but we’re divorced now and she should stay that way,”Howard, 44, told ET Monday night at the NYC premiere of the “The Butler,” in which he stars. “And I just wish the best for her, but as far as me harming somebody, anybody that knows me, I really can’t harm a fly.”

The “Hustle & Flow” star admitted that it has taken awhile for him to get to a place where he is at peace and that she is just not on the same enlightened path as he.

“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. You know and it’s sad,” he added.
