More bad news for Ryan Lochte.

Ryan Lochte's brand has taken a huge hit since his Rio Olympics scandal!

The swimmer received a lot of backlash for "exaggerating" a story of being robbed at gunpoint during this year's games, leaving him with two less sponsors.

Now, the number has doubled.

Following Speedo and Ralph Lauren's lead, both Airweave, a Japanese mattress company, and Gentle Hair Removal have decided to drop the disgraced Olympian.

Ryan Lochte is taking it like a champ??

As we previously reported, Speedo released a statement on Monday announcing the termination of their longtime sponsorship of the swimmer following his Rio robbery scandal during the Olympics.

The 32-year-old basically owned up to his "immature" behavior in an exclusive interview with Matt Lauer which aired over the weekend, but it clearly wasn't good enough for the swimsuit brand.

Columbus Short Gets Thirty Days In Jail For Violating Probation!

| Filed under: DrugsLegal MattersScandal

Will Columbus Short ever learn his lesson?!

According to legal docs obtained by TMZ, the actor is in hot water AGAIN for violating the probation terms of a 2014 assault case. Sadly, we're not surprised by this development considering Mr. Short has undergone lot of legal issues over the past few years.

Per the prosecutor assigned to the case, he dramatically failed a drug test while in court this Wednesday when he tested positive for marijuana. To make matters worse, legal reps noted that Columbus' THC levels (the active principal of weed), have increased every week.

Yikes! You think C.S. would try to stay out of trouble considering he has narrowly avoided jail time on numerous occasions!

Not only did the father mess up with drugs, but he failed to complete any of his assigned community service. The celeb was originally ordered to finish 60 days of community work in addition to 26 anger management classes.

Hmm, it sounds like Mr. Short should give Kim Richards a call — she's not a fan of community service either!

Naturally, the judge assigned to the case was NOT happy with the Scandal alum so he hit him with thirty days in prison. The 33-year-old will also have to undergo treatment at residential rehab center for six months.

Despite originally blaming his bad behavior on the recent death of his sister, Columbus eventually apologized towards the end of the hearing.

We'll keep you updated as this case progresses!

The 39-year-old dished:

"There was a period before Scandal when I went into the wilderness. There was a lot of toxicity in my life, people I needed to let go of in a personal way, in a business way. And, also, I felt like I had been living my career kind of on auto-pilot. I took a break and did a Broadway play. I went back to my roots as an artist."

She's the original Olivia Pope!

We kid, we kid. But really, it sounds like Kerry only did what she had to do in order to feel herself again!
