There are some new documents in Scandal star Columbus Short's divorce that are really scary. Radar managed to get a copy of a declaration filed by his soon to be ex-wife. They allege that on the night of April 7th, Columbus held a knife to her throat and threatened to kill not only her, but also himself.
“He then pinned me on the couch and began to choke me. He placed the knife close to my neck and threatened to kill me and then kill himself. He insisted that we play a game he called ‘Truth or Truth’ and told me if I lied to him he was going to stab me in the leg. He started randomly listing names of people we knew and accused me of having an affair. I denied his accusations each time … after each denial he stabbed the couch next to where I was or stabbed other nearby furniture. He placed the knife next to my throat two more times and again threatened to kill both of us.
At this time, I heard our two-year-old daughter upstairs, who was woken by the screaming. I tried to get up and go comfort our daughter, but he told me not to get her — he would not let me get off the couch. He then saw that I had a credit card in my hand, and he grabbed it from me. He went to go hide the credit card, at which time I ran upstairs and got my daughter. I then ran outside and got into the car. Before I could drive off, [Columbus] ran to the car and started hitting the window. Then he tried to get behind the car and block me from leaving. I was able to slowly maneuver the car and drive away.”
What is even more disturbing to me is that she says this is the third time in the past two months that something similar has happened to her. I'm glad she is finally out of there, but I wish she would have left after the first time. I also wonder about Short's future as an actor, because is this someone you want associated with your projects?
