Terrence Howard to Ex-Wife — Want Me to Stay Away? I’LL STAY AWAY

Exclusive 0805-terrance-michelle-howard-tmz-getty-7Terrence Howard is waving the white flag in his bitter war with his ex-wife — agreeing to stay the hell away from her … at least for the next three years … after he allegedly beat the crap out of her this summer.

As we reported, Terrence”s ex Michelle Ghent obtained a temporary restraining order against Howard in August, after the “Iron Man” actor allegedly roughed her up during a blowout fight in Costa Rica in July.

The temporary order prohibited him from coming within 100 yards of her at all times — but today, that order was made permanent, this time requiring Howard to stay 300 yards away from Ghent until 2016.

Howard didn”t put up a fight either … agreeing to abide by the terms of the order and pay $14,800 of Michelle”s attorney”s fees.

Good times.
