Terrence Howard & michelle Ghent

Terrence Howard & Michelle Ghent in 2009

*Man oh man, does Terrence Howard have female problems.

Hmm, we guess you could say dude’s got 99 problems and a you-know-what IS one. At least one, the way he tells it.

If you’ve seen his super hot hit Fox show, “Empire,” you know his TV wife, “Cookie,” played by Taraji P. Henson, is wearing him out for the wrongs he did to her. Well, in real life, his ex, Michelle Ghent, seems to have a big problem with him, too. And apparently she’s making death threats against him. At least that’s Howard’s assertion

TMZ has obtained a search warrant to determine if Michelle Ghent is behind a barrage of Instagram threats, including, “I’m watching you! I’m coming for … LOL. You two won’t live to see your children.” The “you two” appears to refer to Terrence and his new wife.

Another Instagram post warns his wife, “Your husband is cheating on you! Just thought you should know.” The message was sent with a photo of Terrence and another woman.

And there’s this … there’s a pic of a pill bottle that belonged to Terrence with the caption, “Oh dear, look what I found. Do hope you refilled. It’s one of the things you can’t leave home without.”

The LAPD claims in the search warrant affidavit, there’s reason to believe Michelle is behind the postings. One reason … the Instagram accounts have no followers except for her.

The LAPD got a judge to sign the warrant and they have gone on the hunt to find out if she’s behind it.

According to Howard, he’s been getting nasty posts for a year and he filed a police report because he believes Ghent is the culprit.

But Michelle told TMZ, she didn’t send the messages and claims the LAPD has talked to her and she’s no longer a suspect.

The LAPD says it’s still an open investigation.
