After the drama packed finale of Scandal, fans of the show or ‘Gladiators’ were making predictions for the next season. Many viewers, including myself, suspect that Shonda Rhimes and her team of brilliant writers left Harrison’s story open to see how Short’s personal affairs will come together in the coming months. Columbus has been arrested three times in the last three months for domestic disputes. Just last week, his wife claimed he threatened to kill her and then kill himself after choking her and wielding a knife in her face.
Outside of family issues, Columbus has been arrested and charged with felony battery after he knocked out a man at a West Los Angeles bar last month. He was released from jail on $50,000 bail.
Thursday afternoon, he released a statement:
“As you all know, lately my personal life has been subjected to a lot of press. As much as I would like to provide my side of events, my counsel has instructed me that a Court of law is the only and proper venue to deal with such matters,” Short said in the statement. “Accordingly, I must refrain from making any comments even though that is very difficult for me under the circumstances. Thank you to my fans for your continued support during this difficult time.”
Will anyone want to work with Short after all his drama?
