You rarely hear about a couple getting married, divorced, then married again. What’s even rarer is that they get divorced again!

Lori and Terrence had a total of three kids, two marriages, and two divorces. If you’re interested in their relationship and how one woman stole Terrence Howard’s heart twice, here’s everything we know about Lori Mccommas.

Lori Mccommas is the two-time ex-wife of American actor, producer, and singer Terrence Howard. She was born on the 22nd of June 1969, and she has three kids from her marriage to Howard.

Little is known about the early life of Lori Mccommas since she wasn’t famous before marrying Howard. However, we do know that she was raised in a religious Christian home and that her parents were devoted Jenovah’s Witnesses. It’s not clear whether she followed in their footsteps, but she’s known for her strong faith and frequent church visits.

Mccommas graduated from Henderson High School, then later earned a certificate from Pratt Institute of Brooklyn, New York.

Lori Mccommas is most famous for her relationship with her ex-husband, Terrence Howard. The couple met at Pratt Institute, which they both attended, but it’s not clear what year they met.

Rumors are that they dated while still in school, and their relationship became so strong that they were entangled in each other’s family lives.

A Failed Marriage

In 1989, Howard and Mccommas got married when they were only 20 years old. They’d just graduated from college, and they were already so much in love.

Unfortunately, the couple divorced in 2003 after a fruitful 14-year marriage. To this day, no one knows the exact reasons for the divorce, especially since the couple appeared to lead a perfect life.

Most rumors suggested that Howard was physically abusing Mccommas, and they were fueled by Howard’s admission that he slapped his wife once in front of their kids in 2001.

Since Howard has a history of assaults and public outbursts, it wasn’t hard to believe that his own wife fell victim to that.

Despite the divorce, both Howard and Mccommas continued to co-parent their kids together, and they supposedly stayed in touch.

Shortly after their divorce, Howard and Mccommas got remarried in 2005. They reportedly weren’t even talking after their divorce, but they started warming toward each other again, and they even spent a few nights together as a family. 

That’s supposedly when they decided to give their marriage another chance.

The second wedding took place in a private ceremony, away from the eyes of the media. Some reporters said that the wedding was held in Pennsylvania and that the children were present.

Unfortunately, the second marriage only lasted for two years, much shorter than the first. Like the first time, no one knew the exact reason, but it’s said to have been a matter of physical abuse or infidelity.

After getting divorced from Terrence Howard twice, Mccommas remained unmarried, and it’s even believed that she stayed single. There’s no proof of her getting involved with anyone else, so the reports say that she’s focusing on her three kids.

Howard’s love life has been colorful. Before marrying Michelle Ghent in May 2010, he dated supermodel Naomi Campbell. He and Ghent separated in 2011 and divorced in 2013. Howard then married Mira Pak in 2013, but they split in 2015. They got re-engaged in 2018 but haven’t remarried.

As of 2024, Lori Mccommas’ net worth is supposedly $50 million. No one knows much about her financial affairs, so it’s not clear whether her wealth is sourced from her ex-husband or her own business ventures.
