Columbus Short is still in the media, but this times its his estrange wife that might be the one under fire now!
We all know that Columbus was arrested for domestic violence for when an altercation broke out between him and his soon to be ex-wife Tanee McCall. As a result Tanee filed for divorce and Short lost his role as Harrison in the hit TV drama Scandal.
After being bailed out of jail TMZ got a hold of video that shows Tanee has a violent side to her too!
The next day — after Columbus bailed out of jail — he asked his friend Tilly Key to come to his house to pick him up. We’re told Tanee went ballistic when she saw Tilly in the house, and that’s when Tanee attacked.
Tilly wanted TMZ to post the video, to show Tanee is violent and even threatened her life.
Tilly says she suffered a concussion, a cervical sprain, multiple contusions, a lumbar sprain and lumbar strain.
The video is pretty crazy and Tanee looks like she is not one to mess with either. Judge for yourself and lat us know what you think about all this messiness!
We were all left on edge in the season finale of Scandal for many reason. One being the fate of Columbus Short‘s character Harrison.
Well it looks like those rumors have Shonda Rhimes axing Short if he doesn’t get his act together are true. Moments ago he released a statement through his publicist that he will not be returning for the fourth season of Scandal.
“At this time I must confirm my exit from a show I’ve called home for 3 years, with what is the most talented ensemble on television today. I would like to first thank [creator] Shonda Rhimes for the opportunity to work with such an amazing cast. Thank you GLADIATORS, who have supported me throughout my entire career and of course to ABC and Shondaland for allowing me to play such a pivotal role in the Scandal series. I have enjoyed every single minute of it. Everything must come to an end and unfortunately the time has come for Harrison Wright to exit the canvas. I wish nothing but the best for Shonda, Kerry and the rest of the cast, who have become like a second family to me in such a short amount of time. For this, I will forever be grateful.”
Buh bye Harrison it was nice while it lasted. Hopefully his person business had nothing to do with the demise of Shorts character.
Columbus Short is taking the high road. The Scandal recently called in to the Tom Joyner Morning Show, but the interview didn’t go exactly as he wanted, in fact it was rather awkward. Instead of letting things linger in limbo like his character in Scandal he decided to speak out with an apology to Tom Joyner and his team for his so nasty and so rude actions!
“TJMS, My sincerest apologies for the confusion over my appearance on your show last Friday morning. I am a long time supporter and admirer of The Tom Joyner Morning Show and I was looking forward to an opportunity to speak with you and your audience. Unfortunately, the early morning (approximately 5:45AM Pacific Time) following a late-night event had me at what some describe, less than my best.
To clarify a few of my statements:
1. I rarely use the “n” word and I could not have picked a worse time to do so. I deeply apologize for directing it towards you.
2. Regarding my statements about women being insecure, I am a strong believer and supporter of women and I am always amazed by all that our better halves accomplish. I come from a family of strong black women and I would never discredit or minimize their success. I have the deepest respect for women, their strength and innate beauty. To suggest anything else was never my intent. I simply wanted to emphasize that women have no reason to feel that way and my song, “Gave Ya”, is meant to convey just that.
3. Lastly, just to clarify, I was not high, drunk or otherwise under the influence. I was simply exhausted. After a long day, the early call threw off my schedule.
This was no excuse – you and those who support me deserved better. Please accept my deepest apologies for any misunderstandings for that morning call. It would be an honor to appear on the TJMS in the future to set things right with your audience.”
Looks like someone’s publicist is play damage control! I get it, it is tough to to have your life on display for the world to see. What do you think about Columbus’ apology?
With his fate on the hit series Scandal in limbo he recently sat down with People Magazine. He seems calm, cool and collected giving his current situation.
“To be honest with you, I’m feeling raw, focused, vulnerable and in a perfect place to write great music,” he told PEOPLE as he was promoting the new single, “Gave You,” off his upcoming album. “God’s been preparing me for a long time to deal with this season of my life. Being able to have thick skin is something that is needed.”
He sounds like he has his head on right. He also lets us know he doesn’t pay attention to anything written about him.
“You want to know the truth? I don’t read anything,” he says. “I don’t read the good stuff and I don’t read the bad stuff, because if I read the good stuff, I’ve got to read the bad stuff. I don’t allow myself to make agreements with nonsense so I just don’t take it in.”
Adds Short, “I block it and I make sure my team knows, don’t even show me stuff – because unless it’s real, I don’t even want to see it, I don’t even want to talk about it, because you never know where stuff is coming from and you make an agreement with a lie.”
Well maybe he likes living a fantasy. I kind of get not wanted to know whats out about your self. I mean a lot of things about stars are made up and people make things up just to get readers. So yeah I get it .
Listen to his new single “Gave Ya” below then weigh in below.
Columbus Short called into the Tom Joyner to talk all thing Scandal and his new single!
Tom tried to pry for info after last nights cliff hanger on whether or not Columbus’ character, Harrison was shot in last five mins.
Rumors have been swirling around ever since the Scandal star recent run in’s with the law that Shonda Rhimes gave Short an ultimatum. She basically said if he doesn’t shape up he’s fired. Allegedly of course. Of course that’s just hear-say and we won’t really know what will happened until next season.
Everything with the interview was going fine until the subject of his music came up… Oh, and when they brought up his soon to be ex-wife. It could be that it was 4:45 a.m. and he was a little cranky but either way he got really stand-off ish. Listen to the interview below and judge for yourself.
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!”
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.
Looks like Columbus Shorts victim he punched out last week will not be pressing charges. Apparently due to family ties.
Columbus was involved in a fight at an engagement party in L.A. that ended with him punching a guy breaking his nose and hospitalizing him. Short turned himself in on one count of felony aggravated battery.
The victim’s lawyer tells TMZ, he’s been in contact with Columbus’ management to come to some sort of settlement without involving police. We’re told the victim has made it clear to investigators he doesn’t want the case pursued criminally.
The reason … the lawyer tells us both men are tight with the same people — the alleged fight went down at a family member’s engagement party — so the victim wants to resolve this as amicably as possible.
If they end up settling, Short could end up paying a boatload in medical expenses — we’re told the victim suffered a facial fracture and a massive concussion from Short’s punch, as well as serious neck and back injuries.
It’s possible the criminal case could go forward — but without the victim’s help, it’s very unlikely.
Columbus Short has been in the headlines a lot lately and not for the best reasons! He was arrested on Battery Charges on March 26.
Some good news for the Scandal star! He has recently released a new single called “Gave Ya” and its not that bad! I guess he needs to redeem himself from that horrible spectical he showed on the Arsenio Hall show earlier this month. HotMess.com
It’s no surprise really that music would be his next step for the dancer/actor. Don’t forget he was once a backup dancer and choreographer for Britney Spears during her “In The Zone” era.
