Well kinda sorta… Columbus knew he had to say SOMETHING about all that craziness!
Columbus Short Releases A Statement In Response To Wife’s Abuse Allegations
Isht pretty much hit the fan Wednesday after Columbus Short’s wife filed for divorce AND a restraining order that included a statement that said he’d threatened her a knifepoint. While he definitely has some explaining to do, Short says he just can’t right now.
In a statement released by his publicist on his behalf Short says:
“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. 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.”
Yikes… Shonda Rhimes is probably THIS close to writing homeboy off “Scandal.” But in the meantime, he’s still hosting “Scandal” viewing parties.
According to TMZ reports:
Columbus Short is not going to let a little thing like allegations of murder/suicide from his estranged wife get in the way of promoting himself … TMZ has learned he still plans on hosting an event in Hollywood tonight.
As TMZ first reported, Short’s estranged wife Tanee claims Short attacked her on April 7 … at one point holding a knife to her throat and threatening to kill her and himself. Tanee obtained a restraining order and had Short thrown out of their home.
But despite all that drama, Short is hosting a “Scandal” season finale viewing party at a Hollywood club … where he will also perform his new single, “Gave Ya.”
