Lori McCommas is famous as a two-time ex-wife of the award-winning actor and Oscar nominee, Terrence Howard. Lori and Terrence married each other in 1994 and divorced in 2003. They revived their wedding vows two years later in 2005 and divorced once again in 2007.
While many people certainly know a lot about Terrence given his great career success, not quite much is known about Lori. So, the following paragraphs are devoted to all the relevant facts about her.
Lori McCommas Bio
Lori McCommas was born on June 22, 1969, in New York City. Her birth sign is Cancer. She holds the nationality of the United States of America and is of the white Caucasian background. Lori currently resides in California where she practices Judaism as her religion.
We have no information yet about Lori’s elementary and high school days. However, it is on record that she attended Pratt Institute Brooklyn, New York. It was at Pratt Institute that she dated Terrence Howard who was also a student there. She became pregnant for Terrence while at college which led to their eventual marriage.
Lori McCommas has two daughters with her ex-husband Terrence. Her daughters are named Aubrey Howard (born in 1993) and Heaven Howard (born in 1997). They also have a son named Hunter Howard and who was born in 1995.
Aubrey Howard who incidentally attended Howard University in Washington DC seems to take after her father Terrence in having unstable marital life. She got pregnant for a man named Billy Gale before she was 18. She eventually married Billy. Then, she was later reported to have divorced him while coming out as a lesbian on National Coming Out Day 2017.
Lori McCommas’ only son Hunter Howard is an actor. But it seems he is acting only on a part-time basis. He acted as ‘Young Darius’ in a 2005 film titled Animal alongside his father Terrence Howard. Apart from this, we have not been able to trace any other movie role he has filled.
We do not know much about Heaven Howard except that her relationship with her stepmother Mira Howard (nee Pak) is strained. She recently called out Mira on Instagram, claiming Mira tries to make life difficult for her. Nonetheless, all of Lori McCommas’ kids obviously maintain very cordial relationships with their dad Terrence Howard.

Terrence Howard’s marital instability certainly stands in direct contrast to his career success. Possibly responsible for his marital difficulties is a part of his life history that tells of him living under an abusive father who would manhandle him at the slightest opportunity. His father was eventually incarcerated for murder, which made life even more difficult for Terrence.
However, he managed to steer through his education up to college. He went to Pratt Institute where he met Lori McCommas, but reports have it that Terrence eventually dropped out of college. It is held that he dropped out to pursue his career interest. Nonetheless, there are indications that there were other reasons for it: he got Lori McCommas pregnant on campus and subsequently married her. This got him financially strained that he was left with little option but to focus more on his acting career.
