Scandal Star Columbus Short Wife Accuse Him Of Murder/Suicide

Scandal actor Columbus Short made headlines this week after his wife Tanee Short accused him of murder/suicide.

TMZ reported that Short’s wife threw him out their home and filed for divorce after he alleged put a knife at her throat and threatened to kill her and kill himself.

Perhaps someone is too entrenched in their role on the hit TV show Scandal.

According to a new restraining order — obtained by TMZ — Short got into it with his wife April 7 at their Chatsworth home, where she claims he came into her room intoxicated with a wine bottle in hand, acted like he was going to hit her with the bottle and then unloaded the wine on her.

Tanee Short claims Columbus then ran to the kitchen for a knife, pinned her to the couch and began choking her. She says he then demanded they play a game he called “Truth or Truth.” He allegedly said if she lied he would stab her in the leg.

Columbus short has since been charged with criminal domestic violence. Tanee Short obtained a restraining order requiring him to move out their home and she has also filed for divorce.
