Columbus Short Is A Scary Guy

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?

Who is this abusive asshole?
First time rationalization- Drugs
2nd rationalization- Drinking and Drugs
Third time? This Bastards crazy! Ain't no money worth our lives!

nicely put.

MYFAVORITEBARBIE said...

Agree.

FearN said...

I hope Shonda kills off his Scandal character now. Ugh.

surfer said...

Guess he's not so much of a gladiator now, right?

Steampunk Jazz said...

Well FSP, I don't think she wanted to get charged if she said " I knocked that bastard over getting out of there!"
I spy the fine hand of a lawyer's attempt to stymie a countersuit. :-D

Candyland said...

What a Scandal! That said, this is bad news. I hope he gets help.

Leekalicious said...

If this were me, this would not have happened a second time, especially with a child in the house. Unbelievably irresponsible parenting. Report him so he at least might get some help/realize that this is not normal behaviour.

His role has gotten progressively smaller on Scandal, he was on last week and I was surprised to even see him there, thought he had left.

I wondered if Producers are preparing to axe the character. He doesn't add anything anymore, has effectively been removed from the storyline.

FearN said...

I agree - he has disappeared. Hopefully Adnan axes him! Can't look at him the same now. The show has totally jumped the shark, but still.

Either this specimen straightens out or stays behind bars. He cant mix with regular people.

Harry Knuckles said...

Well isn't this a warm and fuzzy morning? Bryan Singer molesting kids followed by Andre No-More-Johnson followed by Columbus Short pulling a knife on his wife. Maybe this will help.

gr8p said...

She needs to divorce and asked for sole custody and that he is barred from his child. He is DANGEROUS! I wouldn't leave my child alone with him.

Glitter said...

I can barely understand him on Scandal. He mumbles as he delivers his lines.

Didn't he use to be a Britney Spears dancer?

Princess C. Bananahammock said...

No doubt!

Jacq said...

If that was the situation, I can't imagine any jury who could convict her if she had run him over in the process.

hollywood dime said...

Remember the Britney story I told you guys about how they did a whole video and planned for her to fake a knee injury so they could get her to the hospital for an abortion (but she really ended up blowing her knee in the process)? Columbus was the daddy.

Steampunk Jazz said...

Mind blown @ Dime. Mind blown...

Katie said...

It was the video for outrageous! I really liked that song. but yeah, he was cheating on his wife or fiancé with Britney circa in the zone. she even mentioned him in her cd notes. She really got away with that one. ALMOST NO ONE remembers that.

texas rose said...

He sounds like a great guy.

rajahcat said...

I've noticed his role getting smaller and smaller.....

Season final tonight baby----perhaps he won't survive it

rajahcat said...

interesting Katie....

rajahcat said...

and dime

headrot said...

@jacq well then, you'd be dead wrong. If the victims of a robbery can be sued by the family of the robber for getting killed in the middle of a robbery attempt and win the lawsuit, how the fuck do you think a lawsuit in this situation would go any differently?

Alicia said...

Hollywooddime you're blowing my mind this morning. I need to check in more just to read your comments

S.joy said...

Uggggh I used to love him. Crush totally ruined. Just disgusting.

@hollywood dime WOAH. I remembered they dated, but had no idea she was pregnant by him. Mind blown

Wen said...

Not defending him, but her story sounds sketchy.

Steampunk Jazz said...

Hey headrot, howzit?

CanadianMiss said...

"I also wonder about Short's future as an actor, because is this someone you want associated with your projects?"

Right? Cause look how Charlie Sheens career tanked! Oh wait...

rajahcat said...

but Sheen carried a popular highly rated sitcom

Short does not.......he can't afford the bad rep

LowKey said...

Hollywood Dime, I am *so* glad you're back!

__-__=__ said...

How does anyone let this happen a second time? When people show the crazy it's past time to get outta there. So glad Brit didn't breed with this guy!!

What the what, Holllywood??

Alita said...

Good golly & wowsers, @hollywood! If you do come back in, would you be able to give us a circa on when this happened?

Aoife said...

Baby Wipes is still in demand right?

Hollywood Dime! All I can say is mind blown. I'm guessing Harrison isn't long for Olivia Pope's world.
