Columbus Short reportedly violated his restraining order 6 times

By  |  28 Comments

Actor Columbus Short appears to be falling apart at the seams lately, and it’s messier because it’s all happening in public.  Short was once a highly-paid, highly-respected star of the most popular show on television, and now he’s falling from grace faster than anyone would have ever expected.

The former Scandal star lost his job after being accused of domestic violence by his estranged wife.  He also went onto The Tom Joyner Morning Show and gave a bizarre interview in which he referred to Tom using the n-word.  This was right before he was officially dropped from the show.

Short has had a restraining order filed against him by his estranged wife Tanee McCall-Short, ordering him to avoid contacting her or coming into her physical space.  This was compounded by Short hauling off in public and punching a man at a bar, making him look ever more violent.

But it gets worse.  TMZ is reporting that Short has been violating the restraining order almost as if it never existed in the first place.  The actor has reportedly violated the order a stunning six times since it was filed, and no one seems to know why.

Tanee’s attorneys are asking that the temporary order be made permanent, since they believe that their client’s life might be in danger.   The order has been extended to July 30th.

Short started making news after he allegedly put a knife to his wife’s neck, threatening a murder/suicide.

Maybe he needs some help.  Let’s hope that he gets it.

    Ever since he played the character in “Stomp the Yard”, I envision to be a real asshole. It sure is coming to fruition now since he cannot mind the law and value human welfare.

    Most people don’t appear to have psychological problems in many cases, but many do! Sometimes the mental health issues are triggered by something related to the person’s childhood or a traumatic experience. This appears to be what is happening in this young man’s life. He truly needs the judicial system to order him to receive a specific amount of psychiatric treatment before it’s too late.

    Honestly, he just needs to turn it down and reel it back in. He’s been real high profile for quite a bit now and there’s another side to life. Most of us never have that kind of profile and live in obscurity. He’s waaay to gifted. But you gotta just be a regular dude too as well and learn we all gotta stick n move; turn it waay down sometimes and just chill homie. Many a brotha has to do it to survive and get by, or it’s (the system) made to destruct us.
