Columbus Short has been having a rough go of it in the relationship department. Two years ago his then wife, Tuere Tanee, filed for divorce and a restraining order. That event was likely the reason he was fired from Scandal.
Last week, he had more marital problems. Karrine Steffans, his alleged current wife, put up an Instagram post with Columbus’ belongings strewn about. The caption alleged he’d been cheating and she was kicking him out of her home. He responded to that post on Twitter stating he’d been homeless before but “wouldn’t be again.”
Today, a judge granted the restraining order Karrine filed against him.
“A judge granted Karrine Steffans a temporary restraining order against her husband Monday, TMZ reports. Short was ordered to move out of the couple’s home, the site reports. In the restraining order, Steffans alleges Short once kicked their bedroom door down in a drunken rage and in a separate incident threatened her 18-year-old son.”
It’d be a fair to ask if he was still having substance abuse problems, which he cited as the cause for his erratic behavior back in 2014.
“I’ll be candid. I was struggling with drugs, I had a lot on my plate, and you know, I was using unhealthy ways to kind of self-medicate and deal with a lot of heavy-duty stuff in my life,” Short said.”
Here’s to hoping Columbus gets his life together.
