Living life in the spotlight is not as glamorous as the stars make it seem. With all the fame comes a handful of misfortune, and actor Columbus Short is currently experiencing the darker side of his “success”.
We have come to know and love Short for his recurring role on the hit television series “Scandal”, but lately he has found himself wrapped up in a few scandals of his own.
His first run-in with the law happened as a result of an altercation with his estranged wife back in March. The star has been accused of getting physically violent with Tanee Short and threatening to kill her.
This came as a shock because fans never expected one of their favorite characters to be violent, but the star claims to have never been a physically violent man.
“Me and my wife, we’re going through problems, serious, serious problems,” he told reporters. “[…], I am not a physically violent man. … I have never put my hands on a woman, physically, ever.”
After a restraining order and a dismissal from the fourth season of “Scandal”, Short has managed to find himself in yet another meeting with the police.
During the weekend of July 4, Short was arrested for public intoxication in Dallas, Tx.
Short claims that there was an altercation going on that the police assumed he was a part of. When they arrested him, he admitted to having a few choice words for the officers, but he apologized to them.
It seems to be one thing after the other with Short, and the people want to know what is really going on in his personal life. Multiple online sources claim that Short is a violent, avid drug user that will fight you in a bar and kill his wife. We can not confirm any of those claims but we know one thing for sure, Short has created a mess.
According to MouthtoEars.com,
“Not only is Columbus perplexed in his personal life, but his home has been vandalized so much, he is currently residing in corporate housing until he can find a new residence.
Columbus has been having all night parties with women who he uses drugs with.”
Short told Access Hollywood that the press has made him out to be something he is not.
“I haven’t been perfect. I have not been perfect, but I have not been all the things that have been in the press,” Short said.
We hope that Short can get it together.
