Report: ‘Scandal’ Star Faces ‘Murder/Suicide’ Threat Claims

Published: Wednesday 16th Apr 2014 by David

One night before the show unleashes its latest season finale on ABC, ‘Scandal’ find itself plagued a fresh ‘scandal’ of its own today…this time, playing out off camera.

For, before the world learns if he’ll return to the show for its fourth season, actor Columbus Short has been accused of threatening to murder his wife, reportedly placing a knife to her throat during an argument in their home on April 7th.

Full story below…

TMZ reports:

“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.”

    So there might have been some truth to the guy at the bar statement about sleeping with his wife. It hit a nerve for Short.

    But eventually there’ll be  no churches (in the New Jerusalem).
    I’m an involuntary witness’ – ”Can I get a witness’.
    The woman coming was definitely very special more so than the
    other humans that would soon come after her arrival.

    Hi this is kinda of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG
    editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience.
    Any help would be enormously appreciated!
