WTF???

Why is it crimes against women always seem to yield shorter prison sentences..?

TMZ reported Tuesday morning that Columbus Short, formerly of TV's Scandal, is already out of jail after serving just 34 days!

As you may recall the actor was recently sentenced to a year in jail and 36 months of probation for domestic violence charges after being pleading no contest to hitting his wife, Aida Abramyan.

Apparently he was let out early because of jail overcrowding. Ugh. Great message, L.A. County.

If you do the crime, you've gotta do the time… and now, Columbus Short is going to do about a year in jail for his crimes against his current wife.

In a Los Angeles court on Friday afternoon, the former Scandal star pleaded no contest to hitting his current wife in an altercation back in November, and the actor was then sentenced to a year in jail for the deed by a judge.

According to ET, Short will instead resume his sentence in the Pasadena Recovery Center Outpatient Treatment program.

The actor told the outlet:

"I'm feeling grateful for the learning lesson and I'm fully accountable for my mistakes. I'm ready to get to work and never go back to that place. God is good."

His progress report hearing is scheduled for June 28.

Although he says he's learned his lesson this time, we guess only time will tell!

Here's to a successful recovery.

Columbus Short Gets Thirty Days In Jail For Violating Probation!

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!

Will the real Becky please stand up?

As you've probably heard, Beyoncé released her epic album-film Lemonade on Sunday, where one of the most talked about moments was the song Sorry.

In the tune, the songstress hints at husband Jay Z's infidelity by singing the lyric, "He better call Becky with the good hair."

While many have speculated that the mistress is either Rachel Roy or Rita Ora (both have denied), could Karrine Steffans be the woman in question?

On Friday, Columbus Short's maybe-wife (read the complicated story HERE) wrote an entry on XOJane.com where she says she hooked up with the rapper 15 years ago.

Sigh. More trouble for Columbus Short.

According to court records obtained by the Associated Press, the former Scandal star failed a drug test after testing positive for cocaine and marijuana. He now faces a probation violation in a felony assault case.

To catch you up, the 33-year-old was charged after he delivered a running punch to a man during a family gathering back in 2014 — a blow that reportedly left the man unconscious with a fractured eye socket.

In light of the recent infractions, a Los Angeles Superior Court judge has scheduled a court date for May 9th.

Welp — if it's not one thing, it's another

Columbus Short Claims He's Not Married As 'Wife' Karrine Steffans Is Reportedly Granted Restraining Order

Filed under: Legal MattersLil WayneViolenceBreakups

Columbus Short and Karrine Steffans

This just keeps getting weirder and weirder…

Last week we told you Columbus Short was put on blast by his wife Karrine Steffans Short when she took to social media with cheating allegations. At the time, the former Scandal star responded by taking the high road saying that he's grateful for their time together.

Fast forward to now, TMZ reports that Steffans has been granted a temporary restraining order after she claimed Short's drinking has gotten out of hand. The 37-year-old author says the actor's "drunken tirades" happen at least three times a week — and she says he's even kicked down the bedroom door where she was hiding.

Columbus was also ordered to move out of the couple's apartment.
