This is just about as crazy as a storyline from the show!
Scandal star Columbus Short made headlines earlier this year after an alleged bar fight that got him thrown in jail!
Now, violence is surrounding his name once again only this time, the deets are SO much worse!
According to a new police issued restraining order, Columbus’s wife Tanee claims he came home drunk one night. He entered a room she was in with a wine bottle in his hand, acting like he was going to hit her with it!
Tanee claims he then ran into the kitchen for a knife, pinned her to the couch, and began choking her! He allegedly told her they were going to play Truth Or Dare and if she lied, he was going to stab her in the leg!
Columbus began rattling off the names of men he believed she had had an affair with. She denied any infidelity but he then allegedly put the knife to her throat and explained how he would murder her and then commit suicide!
Tanee was able to escape from the house but she told police that Columbus slashed her tire as she fled!
This restraining order requires Mr. Short to move out of the couple’s home. Tanee also filed for divorce this week, citing irreconcilable differences and asking for sole custody of their 2-year-old daughter.
This is not good!
It sounds to us like Columbus needs to get himself some SERIOUS help!
