Karrine Steffans Says She Blasted Columbus Short For Cheating To Save Her Marriage

Remember when we told you that Karrine Steffans blasted her husband Columbus Short for cheating???


Well Karrine’s explaining what happened and according to her, what happened between them “wasn’t that serious” and she exposed his alleged creeping to “save their marriage.


HelloBeautiful reports:

Karrine confirmed that, despite how it looks, Columbus wasn’t carrying on a long-term relationship with another woman and it “wasn’t that serious.”

“It happened a while ago and dealing with it internally, there was no recourse. I needed us to hit bottom. And then we can deal with it properly”

Moreover, it’s Columbus himself, Karrine says, who was honest about his affairs.

“He called me crying,” she told us. “Columbus is not a bad person he’s just battling things I can’t help him with.”

In spite of his tarnished reputation, Karrine speaks highly of her significant other.


“I’m so in love with this man. He’s so good to me and my son. And taking care of our house and such a good provider. He’s not as terrible as everyone made him out to be.”

Touching on why she decided that her move would be to post the photo on Instagram, she explained,

“If your man’s worst fear is that his mom finds out, then you tell his mom. If his worst fear is that his pastor finds out, then you tell his pastor. If a man’s worst fear is that the public knows that he is not everything he is pretending to be in this moment, then you go there.”

While the ever-watching public eye doesn’t negatively affect Karrine, her decision to make the situation public was deliberate.

“That was this situation’s button. This was his thing, like ‘Please don’t tell anybody about this.’”

Karrine says she pushed the “fear button” to save her marriage.

She also added this tidbit about “abuse”….

“I love my husband, but to be honest, I needed us to hit bottom. It’s time.”

“If you’re in an abusive relationship of any kind, and you don’t say anything, and your circle is small […] nobody knows. There’s no help, and it just gets worse. As long as no one knows, there’s no bottom.”


During a candid call with HelloBeautiful, Karrine grew emotional describing her love for her husband. “He’s such a great person in so many ways in so many ways, but there are demons here we are all aware of.”

Karrine refused to go into detail about what those demons are, but made it clear that only Columbus can conquer them.

Wait, is she alleging that there’s abuse in their marriage???

According to Columbus, who also alleges that he’s homeless now, their marriage is a wrap. “It was too much,” said Columbus. “I just want to move on with my life and get back to work.”

ET Online reports:

On Tuesday, Short confirmed to ET that he was splitting from his wife.

“It was too much,” the 33-year-old actor said of the incident. “She is a super bright woman, and it’s unfortunate some haven’t mastered their emotional behaviors.”

Short claimed that he has not been unfaithful to Steffans, who he’s only been married to for a few months. “I didn’t cheat or anything of the sort,” he said. “I didn’t agree with some things she is putting in her new book, and she basically told me to leave and she was done. So I left.”

Short says that’s when his wife followed him “downstairs and began filming [him] as she threw [his] clothes everywhere.”

“I just want to move on with my life and get back to work,” he added. “I don’t have time nor do I care for any of this.”

Well that was quick.

Karrine’s continuing to tweet about their situation, hit the flip to see what she has to say.
