Scandal’s Harrison Suicidal – Columbus Short Chokes & Threatens Wife With Knife; Wife Files For Divorce…AGAIN
Just weeks ago Columbus Short was facing felony charges for beating family friend unconscious after the friend made some rude comments about his wife, Tuere Short. At first it seemed that Columbus Short was defending his wife’s honor, but shortly there after we learned that Columbus Short has a serious history of violence that includes multiple assaults and domestic violence claims.
According to new reports, Tuere Short is filing for divorce, AGAIN, with a restraining order after a failed reconciliation with her husband. Tuere is accusing Columbus Short of choking her, pulling a knife on her while threatening to slice her throat, and forcing her to confess to affairs with random men by playing a violent game of Truth or Truth. At the end of this horrible ordeal, Columbus threatened to take his on life. Sounds like Columbus Short is going to need Olivia Pope in real life. All jokes aside these are some serious allegations, and Harrison needs to disappear from Scandal until he gets some much needed therapy. Details according to TMZ when you continue below.
WARNING: The details are pretty graphic and disturbing:
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 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.
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 divorce Tuesday, citing irreconcilable differences and asking for sole custody of their 2-year-old daughter.
In addition to the incident April 7th, Short has been charged with criminal domestic violence and child abuse for allegedly abusing Tuere while their child and his son were in the house. He pled not guilty. And he was arrested for yet another alleged domestic violence incident a few weeks earlier.
It’s interesting … just last month — after the first 2 domestic violence arrests — Columbus and his wife put on a united front at The Grove in L.A.
Two domestic violent incidents prior to this one, and now threats of suicide, too. This is a matter of life and death, and there may not be a next time. This one too close for comfort.
