Scandal Star Columbus Short reportedly Threatens to Kill Wife & Commit Suicide



Columbus Short - April 2014 - 01

Even Olivia Pope can’t fix this. Drama, drama, drama.

Scandal actor Columbus Short is making the headlines once again. Last month, Short, who plays Harrison Wright on the hit ABC series engaged in a brawl with a man at a restaurant. He was later released after posting a $50,000 bail.

We know he brings a little bit of cuckoo on the show, but this new report takes cray-cray to another level.

According to TMZ, his wife, Tuere Short has filed for divorce for allegedly putting a knife to her throat last week. Tuere claims Columbus threatened to kill her and himself.

A restraining order indicates that he came into her room with a bottle of wine and acted like he was going to hit her with the bottle and pour the content on her.

He later ran into the kitchen for a knife, pinned her to the couch and began choking her. He also told her that they should play a game called “Truth or Truth”, if she lied he would stab her in the leg.

Tuere says that she then named men he believed she was having affairs with. After denying all the affairs, he put the knife of her throat and threatened to kill her and then commit suicide.

She claims she tried escaping but he slashed her tyre. Tuere cites irreconcilable differences and asking for full custody of their 2-year old daughter in the divorce papers

Shonda Rhimes, the creator of Scandal, reportedly also had a sit down with him and threatened to fire him off the show, if he doesn’t get his act together.

    Babe run as fast as your legs can carry you before you become just a number forming part of the domestic violence group.

    Smart Woman. Not waiting around for a repeat episode. Notice the violence occured a week before she filed for a divorce. No time for long discussions with family, friend, pastor, enemies etc.

    Dear Nigerian Women, this is what you do when your man – husband, fiance, boyfriend, toaster, friends with benefits, platonic friend – is physically violent with you. You get the @#$& out of the relationship. Stay in a violent relationship and become one of the statistics in the news. We’ll only type “eeyah” and “sorry” on BN and move on with our lives.

    He should seriously put his act together.These foreigners just run like to talk suicide anyhow.Since they applaud rehab and therapy,he should better use one.This his quick tempered nature goes way back to when he was cheating on his ex wife with Britney Spears.

      So when you and you boyfriend fights and maybe even breakup we are sure to not find any picture where you too had smiled! You fought throughout your relationship. Or you and your family sef! People just like to talk nonsense without thinking sha. Esp when it has to do with married folks or marriage.

      Madame Noire carried the same story that they also got from TMZ so would it suit you better if BN had carried the Madame Noire version? Where are all those women of wives connection they need to read this article with their praying for abusive husband to change selves.

    He isletting the undeserved glory he has gotten from that over-hyped show get to his head.
    Scandal is so unrealistic that it is not evenfunny.
    If it was Nollywood coming our with such lame story lines,we will laugh out loud.
    Columbus had better get his act together and if you or want to kill,kill yourself alone and leave the woman alone.
