Is this a repost?  Harrison took the gladiator role too far possibly...

Wife accuses 'Scandal ' actor Columbus Short of violence

By Alan Duke, CNN

STORY HIGHLIGHTS
  • Tanee Short alleges three violent incidents with her husband in three months
  • Columbus Short was arrested at his home twice in February, wife says
  • A judge ordered the actor to stay away from his wife and home
  • He faces a felony battery charge from a fight in March

Los Angeles (CNN) -- Columbus Short's wife swears the "Scandal" actor threatened to kill her and himself with a knife last week.

The allegation is part of Tanee Short's affidavit filed Tuesday asking for a restraining order to keep her husband away from her and their 2-year-old daughter. She also filed for divorce from her husband of almost nine years, citing irreconcilable differences.

A judge signed a temporary restraining order and set a hearing for May 6 to decide whether it would be extended.

Columbus Short, 31, plays Harrison Wright, a member of fixer Olivia Pope's team, on the hit ABC series "Scandal." His representatives have not responded to several attempts by CNN to get a comment.

The actor has been to jail at least three times for violence in the past three months, according to court filings.Shocked

Tanee Short's sworn statement described an April 7 incident at the couple's Los Angeles County home when her husband allegedly was intoxicated and threatened to hit her with a wine bottle after he "dumped the wine on me."

He then "grabbed a knife from the kitchen" and "pinned me on the couch and began to choke me," she said. "He placed the knife close to my neck and threatened to kill me and then kill himself."

Her husband demanded they play "a game he called 'Truth or Truth'" in which he randomly listed "names of people we know and accused me of having an affair." He stabbed the couch or other furniture each time she denied an affair, she said.

Tanee Short said she grabbed her daughter, ran to her car and drove away. She realized after driving 2 miles that one of her tires had been slashed, she said.

The affidavit also described two alleged incidents of violence in February at the couple's home. In each instance, Columbus Short was taken to jail by police who responded to his wife's 911 call, the statement said.

The actor woke his wife on the morning of February 3 and choked her before chasing her around the house and "constantly threatening me," she said.

He "pushed me and started screaming that I need to leave" during a February 18 argument, she said. She called police with her nanny's cell phone after her husband shattered her phone, according to the sworn statement.

Short was http://www.cnn.com/2014/03/26/showbiz/scandal-actor-columbus-short-arrested/index.html" rel="nofollow - charged with felony battery after a fight in which he allegedly punched and knocked out a man at a West Los Angeles restaurant last month, the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office said in a statement. He was released from jail on $50,000 bail.

Why did I think Orlando was openly gay? Confused

I think I confused him with another actor. 

Anyway, it sounds like he might have some bipolar sh*t going on.  She needs to stay far away because the next time he might go all the way.

Yes his career is doomed.  No one wants to work with a manic/wife beater/hot head. 
And I did really like his character, too.  I missed the last 2 episodes so need to catch up before tonite.

Looks like we're never going to know Harrison's story and how Olivia "saved" him. Damn...I was still banking on them being siblings.

If this really is what I think (Bipolar Personality Disorder) his age is exactly when it tends to be at its worst.  

He'll end up going to "rehab" which is sign for "I've hired an image consultant".

I thought they were " seperated" , sorry to be the glass half empty girl but after his recent run ins with the law and punching people it would be the perfect timing to go public with his nonsense and get sympathy and leverage for a divorce.

Once someone shows you they are unstable and have a penchant for a can of whoop ass, you should leave then

Agreed.

She should walk and he should get killed off. I think this bahavior affacts the 'morals clause' in his contract.

Who would wanna work with a wife beater?

He flushed his own career down the toliet .. I have no sympathy.

Judging from the group of people who flocked into Hollywood's Couture lounge on Thursday night, it's clear Columbus Short has a slew of supporters.

But following the release of some http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20807812,00.html" rel="nofollow - court documents filed on Tuesday by his now-estranged, wife Tuere Tanee Short, that claim (among other things) that he threatened to kill her, the Scandal star, 31, is geared up for what's ahead with his reputation.

"To be honest with you, I'm feeling raw, focused, vulnerable and in a perfect place to write great music," he told PEOPLE as he was promoting the new single, "Gave You," off his upcoming album. "God's been preparing me for a long time to deal with this season of my life. Being able to have thick skin is something that is needed."

And although aware of why he's in the public eye at the moment, Short generally doesn't pay attention to news centered on him.

"You want to know the truth? I don't read anything," he says. "I don't read the good stuff and I don't read the bad stuff, because if I read the good stuff, I've got to read the bad stuff. I don't allow myself to make agreements with nonsense so I just don't take it in."

Adds Short, "I block it and I make sure my team knows, don't even show me stuff – because unless it's real, I don't even want to see it, I don't even want to talk about it, because you never know where stuff is coming from and you make an agreement with a lie."

If the actor was feeling any negativity, it surely did not show, as the fans who came out also got a chance to watch Scandal's season finale on a big screen with an all-smiles Short in the audience, who even got up on occasion to give a shout-out to the crowd.

Moving forward, Short, who plans to feature BJ McKnight, Musiq Soulchild, YG and Brandy on his upcoming album, already has his next business venture in mind.

"I'm trying to do a line for Middle America – those gladiators out there who want to dress like Harrison [Wright], but can't afford it," he says, referring to his character on ABC's hit series. "There's a way to do it. Back in the day, black young men felt like a million dollars with a haircut and a suit jacket, so that's all we need, so that's what my focus is."

that line would have been a good idea HAD HE STAYED ON SCANDAL
bc then he would have easily promoted it on GMA and all the other ABC stations

Not surprised about the music--remember he's a dancer

^^ IA Pity, he really was just about to take off in his career.  I didn't know he was an accomplished choreographer as well.  The guy has talent--alot of it--but his demons are causing him to crash and burn.

Columbus might be able to recover.  I can't think of the guy's name, but he was a convicted felon and now has made several movies and atleast 2 TV series so its possible.  The guy who played santa in some films, and was a hardware sales guy on TV--whatshisname?  Jayz was a drug dealer...

Yeah it's a shame....he can act, dance, and sing. I am sure he can design things--he seems to be a true creative but that kind always seems to have demons don't they?

He was good friends with that actor who recently killed himself---that guy from Nickelodeon...idk
