Somebody hand me a late pass because I had no idea that Columbus Short was married. But according to RadarOnline, not for too much longer. The “Scandal” actor’s wife, Tuere (who also goes by Tanee McCall-Short), allegedly filed for divorce on September 11 in Los Angeles.

She is seeking sole custody of their 19 month old daughter Ayala, spousal support and is asking that Short pay her legal fees.

According to court documents, the couple married in 2005 and the date of separation is listed as September 9, 2013.

Apparently, this will be Columbus Short’s second divorce.

He was married to another woman named Brandi but Columbus admitted that his fling with Britney Spears (yes, ya’ll the Britney Spears) led to the demise of his first marriage to a woman named Brandi. Columbus served as Spears’ backup dancer at the time.

In 2004, after ish hit the fan Columbus Short told Star Magazine about the nature of their relationship.

”It’s true I slept with Britney, [but] we never had sex because another person was in the room at the time. We shared a bed and were really close, kissing and hugging. The chemistry was magical… our feelings were so strong. Britney’s mom, Lynne, stepped in to prevent that as soon as our feelings started to develop.”

‘It would be fair to say Britney caused major problems in our marriage. Sadly, we’re now getting divorced. Despite everything that happened, I’ll always remember those special moments with Britney.”

Well, well, well.

You learn something new everyday. And if you’re having a hard time believing this, even after reading those comments, there are images of Short and Britney cuddled up here. Crazy, right?

    For some odd reason this doesn’t surprise me because I’ve heard about how much of a dog he is in real life. One night he was in the VIP at Compound in Atlanta. The females that were sitting with him were not very attractive from what I heard. The word was that he made it explicitly clear that if you wanted to chill in VIP with him, then you were “down to smash”. This was back in 2011, I think. So, yeah, he was obviously married at the time according to this post.

  • GymJunkie43

    I like how he blames Britney. So did her bodyguards tie him to the bed and force him to sleep with her? I would love to her Britney’s mom explain herself. How was Columbus, with no kids and a job, not good enough. But Kevin Federline, who had nothing and already 2 kids, was OK?

  • Ladybug94

    Britney caused problems in your marriage?! No sir, YOU caused problems in YOUR marriage. You didn’t have to partake in anything with Britney but YOU chose to be a willing party to it.

  • Tiffany Shaw

    OK some of these comments made me laugh. I swear ya’ll kill me. But yes Mr.Short is a big ole mess off screen , The Britney thing is old news.. He even tried to lie back then and say he wasn’t married.. Hmmmmph.. his current soon to be ex is a lil messy too. She’s a known ex groupie so I’m gonna give her the severe side eye as well.. smh.

  • PICA$$O BABY YEEZU$

    this niga shoulda stayed with britney….not bcuz she’s white, but because shes brtney

  • Radiance Diabolito

    Negro swerve. How in the hell did Britney “cause major problems” in his marriage. No fool, YOU being unfaithful is what caused the major problems. Britney was not the one who made those marriage vows….you did.

  • Mia

    Wow Mama spears axed Columbus fast but let Britney get with Kevin, now I know Columbus was wrong b/c he was married but Kevin had a 6 or 7 month pregnant live in girlfriend. I seriously doubt she interfered with columbus & Britney b/c he was married!!!

  • kickash

    Woooooooooooow, I did not know about the Britney thing! And her mo put a stop to that real quick. i wonder why…..(we all know why)

  • keta

    Brittany did not cause that divorce…you did fool

  • Janae

    ‘‘I‘‘It would be fair to say Britney caused major problems in our marriage. Sadly, we’re now getting divorced. Despite everything that happened, I’ll always remember those special moments with Britney.”
    Wow. Yea she caused major problems in my marriage but that is who I am worried about not my wife.

  • Taunya73

    I did not know that he was married once, surely not twice. Britney? Really? :(

  • PleaseDOBetter

    I didn’t even know he was married, the FIRST time.

  • greentea516

    His real life back story was apparently as mysterious as his Scandal character’s, which I hope they expand on by the way this season!

  • NatashaDecemberBabyThomas

    I didn’t even know he was married, twice, period!

  • Yvette

    Who says you can’t have secrets in Hollywood!

    • yepper

      He actually keeps secrets BADLY I have many friends who new he was married and openly dated other women….But that might be an insider young Holllywood thing. He was hardly ever pictured with his wife but people who knew her, AND KNOW THE OTHER WOMEN HE WAS SEEING….knew he was married. Oh Well…I wouldnt sign up for that ride, he aint capable of doing right.

      • thesouthizback

        Oh, that’s not just a Hollywood thing, he has quite a reputation for “smashing” the ratchet-est chicks he can find at the clubs in Atlanta. no-LOL

  • Eee-bee-phu-row!!

    Well, now he is available…. and he is 31… who’s next, Ladies?? lol

    • http://twitter.com/@Mz_Undrstd Miss_Understood

      He needs to be single for the next 15 years or more. I don’t understand why a young, attractive and successful man would even choose to be married, ESPECIALLY when he works in an industry full of hoes and apparently can’t keep “lil shortie” in his pants

      • Eee-bee-phu-row!!

        wWow!! Its also hard to stay single in Hollywood. Everyone needs to have someone too come home to, me thinks!

        • yeppers

          Its hard for him to stay married apparently…he need to just DATE until he old and gray…He dont respect marriage, he has openly dated/flirted with friends of mine DURING his marriage. So yeah, he dont need to come home to NOBODY but a Goldfish/Puppy. I wouldnt try to force a fairytale upon someone who apparently aint wit that.

  • adamas00

    Nice.

  • WhatYouAllow.com

    Well well well. I didnt know Britney was down with the swirl.

    • tee

      …yeah but obviously Lynn won’t…

  • hollyw

    What the h*ll did I just read?!? 1. Columbus Short was married?? 2. Columbus Short was married twice??? 3. Columbus Short had an affair with BRITNEY SPEARS?!?

    *head explodes*

      @disqus_zXVXZx8vLm:disqus your post made me laugh!!!! I know it’s too much all at once.

      • Gigi

        Yes! Waaaaaaay too much!

      • hollyw

        Omg it was!!! I still don’t wanna believe it!

    • Nope

      More importantly…. he was a backup dancer???

      • hollyw

        Lol now that, I can unfortunately see, with the whole Stomp the Yard debut…

      • &.

        of course he was. he’s not the only dancer turned actor. Remember the series of Soul Food? The guy that played Lem was a choreographer.
        Some people in Hollywood are multi-talented. Not all.

        • hollyw

          … and let’s not forget the adored Channing Tatum!

      • Ladybug94

        Yep, he started out as a choreographer and back up dancer before he got into acting.

    • thesouthizback

      For some odd reason this doesn’t surprise me because I’ve heard about how much of a dog he is in real life. I used to club in Altanta and one night he was in the VIP at Compound (popular nightspot in the city). The females that were sitting with him were not very attractive from what I heard. The word was that he made it explicitly clear that if you wanted to chill in VIP with him, then you were “down to smash”. This was back in 2011, I think.

      • hollyw

        Uh what?! Ewww that is beyond foul if that’s true!

  • http://twitter.com/@Mz_Undrstd Miss_Understood

    Scandalous…I had such a crush on him in Stomp the Yard. I subscribe to the belief that anyone with multiple divorces IS the problem…BTW, his new wife is an alleged groupie-before Columbo, she tried to pen her baby on Murphy Lee (St. Lunatics) and Young Buck (G-Unit)

  • enlightenment

    …Britney Spears?!

  • Jan

    Hmmm I’m not ready to believe that .

    Britney seems to have a thing for men who are “supposed to be” already taken. With that being said “Britney caused major problems in our marriage” is the biggest load of shxt ever! YOU caused major problems in your marriage. How the hell is a third party causing problems between you and your wife? You let it happen.

      Usually an ego thing for the insecure…
