Scandal” star Columbus Short has been thrown out of his house and his wife has filed for divorce … after he allegedly put a knife to her throat last week and threatened to kill her and himself. 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.
Tuere Short claims Columbus then ran into the kitchen for a knife, pinned her to the couch and began to choke 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.
She says he then started naming men he believed she was having affairs with. She denied them all but he allegedly then put the knife to her throat and threatened murder/suicide. As she tried escaping she says he slashed her tire.
The restraining order requires Columbus to move out of the house. We’ve learned cops were there today to ensure the peace as he moved out.
Tuere also filed for a divorce Tuesday, citing irreconcilable differences and asking for sole custody of their 2-year-old daughter.
It turns out this guy has a history of domestic altercations with his wife. He copped a criminal domestic violence charge for allegedly putting hands on her in front of their kid back in February. He pled not guilty to the charge.
Columbus was arrested again a couple weeks later, this time for pushing Tuere during an argument.
Last month he was also accused of beating up some dude outside of an engagement party. A few days later Columbus, his wife, and child were seen out in Los Angeles smiling in front of the cameras.
With all these allegations and charges mounting, his reputation can’t be looking too good right now.
Olivia Pope probably can’t even help him at this point.
