As they say Sh!t just got real for Scandal star Columbus Short! I was hoping that Columbus would have calm down after almost going to jail for punching that other guy out, but no such luck. Once a hot head always a hot head.
Short is in trouble with the law again. His wife, Tuere Short, claims that Short threaten to kill her and then kill himself. She filed a restraining order against the Scandal actor and she also filed for divorce were she is asking for full custody of their daughter.
I was hoping that maybe some of this story is fabricated. Like Tara Banks said to Nicole on that episode of Americas Next Top Model, “We where rooting for you!”
TMZ is reporting:
According to a new restraining order — obtained by TMZ — Short got into it with his wife April 7 at their Chatsworth home, where she claims he came into her room intoxicated with a wine bottle in hand, acted like he was going to hit her with the bottle and then unloaded the wine on her.
Tuere Short claims Columbus then ran to the kitchen for a knife, pinned her to the couch and began choking her. She says he then demanded they play a game he called “Truth or Truth.” He allegedly said if she lied he would stab her in the leg.
She says he then started naming men he believed she was having affairs with. She denied them all but he allegedly then put the knife to her throat and threatened murder/suicide. As she tried escaping she says he slashed her tire.
The restraining order requires Columbus to move out of the house. We’ve learned cops were there today to ensure the peace as he moved out.
Tuere also filed for divorce Tuesday, citing irreconcilable differences and asking for sole custody of their 2-year-old daughter.
In addition to the incident April 7th, Short has been charged with criminal domestic violence and child abuse for allegedly abusing Tuere while their child and his son were in the house. He pled not guilty. And he was arrested for yet another alleged domestic violence incident a few weeks earlier.
