Does This Prove Anything? Columbus Short Records Video Of Wife Fighting His Female Friend

Columbus Short may be hoping to prove a point with evidence that he isn’t the only one who has anger issues in his marriage. Short recently lost his starring role on the hit drama “Scandal” after being arrested for assaulting his estranged wife, Tanee in front of their children. Tanee alleges that the 31 year-old actor held a knife to her throat, choked her and threatened to kill her. She filed a restraining order against him in early April.

Well now there’s evidence that he isn’t the only violent one in this troubled union. Short was arrested for a domestic violence incident that happened in his home on February 18th. After bailing out of jail the next day, he asked his friend, Tilly Key to come pick him up from his house. Tanee apparently went ballistic when she saw Key was at the house and attacked her.

Key approached TMZ with video of the attack to prove Tanee is violent and threatened her life. She also says she suffered from a cervical sprain, multiple bruises, as well as a lumber strain and sprain.

We think all this proves is that the couple is obviously toxic for each other and need to get their act together for the sake of their children. We don’t defend violence in anyway, but did Short really just call another woman to come to the home he shared with his wife to pick him up? Were he or Key really all that surprised when Tanee flipped out? You couldn’t call a male friend, dude? Check out the video courtesy of TMZ below.  We warn you, it’s not pretty:

  • smh

    Oh my. While I do think he’s off, I think there’s a whooooooole lot more to this story than any of us know. I am sure she has her part in the crazy too. After all, birds of a feather …

  • Wow

    He set that girl up for an a$$ whooping. He knew exactly how his wife would react to having another woman come to their home to pick him up which is why he kept filming instead of helping her. And what’s up with him going into to valley guy voice mode or is that how he really speaks b/c his acting voicing doesn’t sound like a surfer dude.

  • kimmie

    It only shows that she’s as crazy as he is & they deserve each other.

  • Island Girl

    Not intervening is the smartest move Mr. Short could’ve made. He doesn’t need to prove to the Court that he is not violent, he only needs to show reasonable doubt that that the claimant is the helpless, fearful, battered victim that the she is so represented in the legal documents. The alleged tweet on April 8 ["Why do I the thing I do is beyond me. However. I’ma end this dude #missionaccomplished."], moreso than the video recording, can legally kill her position. And although the tweet has since been deleted, the digital footprint cannot be erased. She allegedly clearly stated her intent to “end this dude.” The legal fraternity isn’t blinded – – we’ve seen enough profiles of battered and fearful women and abusers, to recognize truth when we see it. People who fear for their live at the hands of habitual abusers (male or female) are never frontally aggressive in the face of said abusers. Assuming the recording is legitimate and that Ms Key can substantiate her claims of injury (which are pretty extensive), should Ms Key elect to file assault charges, then McCall-Short would be ‘up the creek’ so to speak. Idk the terms of the Feb 18 restraining order, but the usual reasonable act of the Court is to allow the defendant time to remove personal necessities from the relevant premises. If that was indeed the case, then Mr. Short would have had every legal right to invite whomsoever he wished inside his home. He had a violent altercation with a guest at a social affair, and it has been corroborated that he seems to have been defending McCall-Short’s honor after it was publicly ‘scandalized’ by said guest. What the general public has had access to view are: a digital statement by one party that may serve to show willful intent to harm the other party, an av recording of the same party performing a violent act to the point of threatening a life, photographic images of the result of the other party’s violent action (for which it appears no charges have been filed to date), and unsubstantiated allegations of spousal abuse to the point of threatening lives. The principal legal issue seems to be the domestic abuse allegations. Case law shows that the instigator, he or she, matters because while domestic violence is a serious criminal offence, defending oneself is not. It could have been a case of her word against his, but for her alleged tweet – – which (from a purely legal perspective) muddies the truthfulness of her entire position. Moral and legal are separate issues that don’t always intersect. We all have our own opinions, however on a point of law the av recording and the alleged tweet could cast substantial reasonable doubt on the veracity of McCall-Short’s claims as legally presented. If she is telling the whole truth, then that tweet could sink her case. If he is telling the whole truth, then that tweet could be his safe card.

    • Renee

      The smartest move he could’ve made is not violating the restraining order in the first place. What does that tell you? No, he had to go back cause he needed that special futon & he couldn’t carry it by himself. So he thinks, who can I call, not family cause EVERYBODY knows I’m not supposed to go back into the marital home. How bout the police, naw, I’ll be arrested on the spot. Lemme see, I got a messy arse “friend” who will help me start some shiz ni yee with wifey, I mean, help to carry this futon. If you think this video will kill her position, you are on the same train as Columbus. Do you understand what a restraining order is? Is there RATIONAL explanation to violate one? He violated his, can you guess what the incident was? Friend didn’t press charges? Can you guess why? Lets all say it together now..HE WAS VIOLATING A RESTRAINING ORDER & TRESPASSING. How do the police know that? Video. He died by his own gun.

      • Island Girl

        As I said IDK the terms of the Feb restraiing order. What was made public is the judge’s decision in APRIL that Mr. Short get his stuff and vacate the premises. This av recorded incident is date-stamped February (not April). As I also stated, the Court almost always allows the defendant to return to the premises to get personal belongings (a simple wexlaw search will verify should you be so inclined). Therefore, we do not know if he was violating the terms of the Feb restraining order. I’m certain that I glimped images of both parties strolling hand-in-hand, together with the minor child, subsequent to the Feb restraining order. The date-stamp of the av footage is the same day Mr. Short was released after posting bail. I’m neither speaking from emotion nor personal opinion madam Renee, I speak factually from United States, State of California case law. Is he guilty? I don’t know. Is she guilty? I don’t know. Once this has entered the realm of the justice system, then it’s no longer about what is moral – legality takes precedence. I’m not in defense of Short nor McCall-Short. My point is that McCall-Short may have messed up her case with her “mission accomplished” tweet.

        • Renee

          A court would allow a defendant in a DV case to retrieve property without police being present?! Okay. Defies logic. Your speaking factually? The only facts are Columbus has a restraining order in place & violated,per court records. Those are the facts. This is not his 1st DV rodeo, fact. United States, State of Cali case law? Que?

          • Island Girl

            Let’s go over the dates one more time. Short allegedly attacked McCall-Short on Feb 14, she filed a report 4 days later on Feb 18, whereupon Short was taken into police custody. On Feb 19, upon his release he seems to have returned home and whatever transpired precipitated the events we now witness in the av recording. The family
            was subsequetly photographed together at The Grove on March 26. A petition for divorce accompanied by a temporary restraining order was filed for on behalf of McCall-Short on April 17 with the latter being granted at the time of filing and with a hearing scheduled for May 6 to determine the need for extension or rescinsion. Short petitioned the Court on April 23 to rescind the restraining order but was instead ordered to remove his belongings within 2 hours and only in the presence of his attorney. Again, the av recording was made on February 19 and the restraining order was granted on April 17. Without reservation, if McCall-Short has no tangible proof of spousal abuse, then her tweet about “ending this dude” especially the “mission accomplished” bit may be damaging to claims of spousal abuse because it implies ulterior motive. I am absolutely neither ascribing nor implying guilt or innocence to either party. This is a separate and distinct issue from McCall-Short’s most recent legal claims of Short’s presence in the home on the Easter weekend. That, if proven to be factual, would be a clear violation of the restraining order, having occurred after the order was made.

            • Renee

              “No tangible proof”, the judge ruled otherwise. Per your own words, Short tried to get dropped, judge ruled otherwise. He violated, per the judge. What else you got?

              • Island Girl

                No ma’am – the judge did not rule otherwise and I did not so state. The time for evidence will come in trial, if the parties do not settle amicably. The judge acted, correctly, on the basis of the allegations filed which are quite serious. But I am missing your point. What exactly did Mr. Short violate given that there was no order in place to be violated at the time of the av recording AND at the time of the alleged knife-play incident? The order came as a result of said alleged incident. You seem set on supporting McCall-Short, while I support neither party. Perhaps therein lies our difference. As has been said by many others, the best place to try this is in the Court. I hope that the guilty party or parties, whomsoever they may be, will be brought to justice, be it Short, McCall-Short or others. Violence, especially life-threatening violence is a serious matter. Last word – it was indeed interesting chatting with you. Namaste!

            • Renee

              “I say without reservation, McCall-Short has no tangible proof of spousal abuse” Your either his attorney or Columbus himself. Are you practicing for your upcoming hearing? If so, come up with a better defense bro. Good luck and Godspeed.

              • Island Girl

                If you are going to quote me, then at least do it accurately. Re-read the post. That is NOT what I said. The statement began and was qualified with the word “IF”!

                Quote:

                “Without reservation, if McCall-Short has no tangible proof of spousal abuse, then her tweet about “ending this dude” especially the “mission accomplished” bit may be damaging to claims of spousal abuse because it implies ulterior motive.”

                That is a far cry from what you have attempted to quote me as having said.

                  Your words not mine, Counselor. Proof-reading is also fundamental.

            And LMAO at this video time stamp mess. My pictures from last night’s baby shower are dated 12/31/1969 – 13 years before I was born.

  • Rosemary Davis

    Him releasing a video regarding his ex-wife anger issues has nothing too do with the abuse he inflicted on her matter of fact if he was a real man he wouldn’t be so vindictive and mean spirited and revengefull.What he doesn’t realize is that he’s further harming his reputation and his chances for acting in anything directors and producers, don’t like trouble makers and will unlikeley hire anyone that’s known to abuse women so he would do well to chill some where.

    • Renee

      You’re making too much sense. These people don’t wanna hear that:)

  • Dear_Heart

    If this clip is evidence in their divorce, it should be thrown out of their case. Off the sheer fact that he broke into their house after being Ordered Out to get a hold of it. And this hurts me to say it because I was a huge fan of his but he needs to fall back and evaluate. So does his wife too because it isnt about them. They have a child to raise.

    • Renee

      Oh it will be evidence, against him. This incident is why he got hit w/violation of restraining order. It’s also why he or his friend didn’t call the police. Now this dummy has posted videographic evidence of his trespassing. Tsk tsk. I was really hoping against hope for this man, but he is out of control.

  • Guest

    Why would he rather record than separate the two women fighting? All flavours of messy happening here

  • Kay

    Wait, what?? People are rationalizing his wife’s assaulting this woman? If she didn’t lay hands on her first, why is it ok for her to react this way? Because the friendship seems suspect? Puh-leeze. This couple obviously needs help. And so does anyone who thinks this is okay.

    • Renee

      “If she didn’t lay hands on her first”, there it is. 46 secs of ol girl on the ground & some ppl are ready to vilify her. That woman may have hit her first, we don’t know.It’s surprising that no one on this thread,besides me, has put 2 & 2 together on this recording & the recent violation of restraining order. He would risk going BACK to jail to punish his wife. Where are the critical thinking posters?! The ones who can see the forest for the trees! Dang…

  • Dana

    He is standing there watching his “friend” get beat the hell down and does nothing to help her. Damn Colombus, you couldn’t pull your wife off of old girl. Geez! It smells like a set up to me!

  • Island Girl

    She beat down an alleged abuser’s friend right in front of the alleged abuser, expecting no retaliation from said alleged abuser. Get real, woman! An abuser would’ve knocked her out in a second! This is no battered woman. This woman can and will fight back or fight first…. And to all those saying nobody knows what happened in the moments before the video, in the same way nobody knows what happened when she cried abuse. We don’t know if she initiated the physical aggression. As to why he didn’t break it up, can you imagine the spin on that story? I’m sure she would’ve filed yet another abuse charge.

  • Parrishon

    It appears to me D.L. Hughley was right. It takes a hostile character to spit on someone. I don’t blame him for recording it. It goes to show exactly what he’s dealing with. Just like Eva she was claiming to be a gangsta b***h who is all hard and jumping tables to fight and wanting sympathy when your man head butts you. I don’t condone violence on either side.

  • Taneesha The Diva

    did she spit in her face?

    • Guestest

      If she didn’t she tried too. If a person spits on me im going to jail for murder. Disgusting.

  • Gypsy

    He’s not smart enough to realize that he has just ruined his career, totally.
    No TV studio would allow him to be cast in a new show with that reputation he’s developed.
    and his obvious lack of good character, filming his wife in a fight instead of trying to stop the fight.

    Some people just can’t handle primetime success.

  • AJ389

    Ok, this is all kinds of bad on so many levels. Ol’ girl really should’ve knwn better than being in their marital home and Columbus was wrong for letting her enter in the midst of all that’s going on. Where was the baby? Even still, my question to her (the visitor) is, “Why not throw a few bows or smthng to defend urself, at least while trying to make an exit? You were wrong as h*ll for being there but still, why just lay there and LET smbdy drag you? I mean d*mn.”

    • Renee

      It really is bad. I believe she went there with ulterior motives, if not, why didn’t she/he call the police after this “attack”? I bet dollars to donuts, this happened after the restraining order. So he not only violates it but brings another woman to the house?! Talk about making a bad situation worse. She better get a legal gun, he already on paper. Rather be judged by 12 than carried by six.

    NO one can set you up. Who set you up to spit in another person’s face? You can’t hide behind gender once your true self has been revealed to be vile and evil.

  • VVV

    I see no problem in him getting his friend to pick him up- if thats all she is? If you dont want top be in a relationship with some one anymore and you are filing restraining orders against them and accusing them of doing gruesome things to you in front of your children, you would not care who came to pick him, you would just be glad that he left.

  • Cat88L3

    Let me just say that they both need help. As a black woman, it is wrong to say that the woman being beat up deserved it because she should have never came to the house. I admit, the bias in these comments towards Columbus Short & the woman is questionable.

    Violence is wrong. It doesn’t matter if Columbus was beating on the wife or the wife was beating on the friend. Nothing is justified unless it’s self defense.

    Columbus was wrong for just recording. Hopefully, he called the police instead of just playing camera/hype man. I have plenty of brothers & nephews. If they needed a ride, I would have picked them up at their house. If the friend certainly was the side chick, that is a bad judgment call on both their parts to put themselves in that situation, but still doesn’t give the wife the right to beat her down…

  • VVV

    I believe in the presumption of innocence. People make false allegations all the time and until the dust settles and the matter is cleared in court I am not jumping on any bandwagon to convict before the facts are out. Furthermore, there is a trend of women destroying men with false allegations which makes it even harder for me to throw out the presumption of innocence which we all are guaranteed constitutionally. Is he a wifebeater? Unless the Courts come out and say then – I have to conlude No. There are times when the facts come out and my opinion differs from the courts but in this case, all we have is he said- she said and a video of her putting a beating on someone.

  • Christina K

    Short is psychotic. You pull out a video to record your ‘friend’ and your wife fighting? You’re a terrible husband AND friend. He started filming because he wanted to set her up. As for her actions, she got baited and baited well. They’re both obviously messed up and need to be apart. For good. Wow, lol.

  • SimplePseudonym

    1. Who’s to know what happened before this. Seems like a set up b/c why is he just taping it and not intervening and why isn’t the woman pissed at him for not coming to her aid?

    2. I notice a lot of acting up by famous men in the news lately. Is this just a mass “break up from the winter boo” movement as they prepare for the booty shorts and sun dresses for the summer? jk!

  • Adrie

    are you seriously defending this woman because he called a female friend to pick him up? it’s suddenly okay for a woman to act like a freaking idiot and assault someone because her feelings are hurt? it’s despicable co-signing behaviour like that that allows women to get away with retaliatory domestic abuse while their husbands end up with the full weight of the blame. i said from the beginning that there was more to this story than we were getting.

  • Britt

    Clearly BOTH of them are crazy and need to leave each other alone. Columbus does look suspect for taping this fight, but it does prove that Tanee may not be a damsel in distress like we all thought. Apparently, she can defend herself and hold her own. I think they both were abusive towards each other. Domestic violence can go both ways. Also, we can’t condemn Columbus for being an abuser and then try to excuse Tanee for beating up that woman. They both need to be held accountable.

  • Mya

    So, didnt watch the video, but Mr. Short video taped his friend being assaulted and didnt intervene? The female friend was in his marital home helping him pack/retrieve items? He needed help to get shirts and a suitcase (he couldnt replace this stuff)? It sounds so fishy. Like he set the wife up and used the friend as bait. The wife is still wrong for getting physical, but what started all of this? Did the friend get physical first? Seems to me if I was attacked I’d be pressing charges. Is the friend pressing charges or just complaining of a neck sprain/strain? It all make Mr. Short look like a crumb what ever happened. Bad move Mr. Short.

  • Taneesha Culture Clash Thomas

    They’re both disgusting

  • Nia Davis

    She is crazy he a crazy they both need to just get the divorce and let it at that. For people defending the wife saying I would of done the say thing it’s my house blah blah your butt would be sitting in jail start acting like adults she did this to herself she is no victim

  • Island Girl

    This is why we should never rush to judge. Now we’ve seen that they both can be violent. You live supposedly happily together for 9 years, with no hint whatsoever of marital woes; one party hits it big and suddenly the other party cries abuse, files for divorce and wants all the $??? Your alleged abuser screams at you that you “need to leave” (her words in the restraining order), yet you stay??? You want to divorce your alleged abuser, yet you beat down another woman for him??? Hmmmm…… Not passing judgement on either party, simply speculating. I personally know one person who went through living hell trying to leave a wife who didn’t want to leave her comfort zone. She called the cops twice and cried domestic abuse. Luckily for him, the security cameras in the house showed her threatening him to withdraw the divorce papers or else she would tell the cops that he hit her (although he never laid a hand on her). Otherwise, he’d probably be in a jail cell now and she’d be laughing all the way to the bank with his hard-earned $. There are usually 2 sides to a story….

    • SimplePseudonym

      Follow your own advice: “This is why we should never rush to judge.” I know you say you’re not judging, but that was a whooooooooole lot of judgement and speculation.

      • VVV

        There was no judgment in her statement.

  • Jaja

    Another day, another news about these two.

    Some people just don’t need to be near each other

  • Machone

    His cheating butt drove her crazy. TYPICAL…..

  • JustJustin

    I do not think either person in this relationship is innocent. I have seen this on the NecoleBitchie blog as well. I find it sad that instead of people saying it is horrible that this woman (who claims to be a victim of abuse) has no problem abusing another woman the commenters are saying things like 1. why did he bring a woman to his house? 2. He’s probably sleeping with her. 3. why didn’t he break it up? 4. oh, yeah this just shows how emotionally abusive he is. Firstly, men and women can be friends. It is advised by police during domestic violent cases such as these that an outside party such as a friend help move one of the people out of the house. Second, just like assumptions shouldn’t be made against his wife based on this tidbit of video, assumptions shouldn’t be made about his friendship with this woman. What could he have done? Breaking up a fight takes aggression and how could he aggressively pulled his wife off of this woman without her reacting violently towards him and things becoming worse? I go on these blogs because they seemed to represent me, a black woman but the bias and commentary written by the chips on people’s shoulders is a bit too much.

    • Renee

      Police advice you call THEM to supervise a move out on D.V. cases, you can have help. Was this woman there to move furniture, I doubt it. How about clothes, he can handle that. Picking him up? Let’s go with that. Stay outside. What other possible reason did she have to go in that house? Common sense aint that common. If he wanted a drama free move-out, he would’ve asked for police assistance. He didn’t.

      • Hey

        So going by your explanation, that means the other woman was asking for the beat down . . . . . .?!

        • Renee

          The point was, NEVER INSERT YOURSELF IN A DOMESTIC DISPUTE. This is one of many things that can happen. We all see 60 secs of video,no before, no after. You say she’s abusing her when you have no earthly idea what happened.

      • JustJustin

        No one should have to assume that a grown person would put their hands on someone for helping move someone out. The more people there to move you out the faster you can leave. Why is it that with this evidence that you have based upon what you’ve read from these blogs you choose to defend this woman so hard after seeing her say she’s a victim of abuse then seeing her abusing someone? I am not saying that she is 100% the problem but come on. Based on this video she was in the wrong.

        • Renee

          So you would go to your married friends house(if your a woman), all by your lonesome, to help him move out faster? If so, please be careful. I sincerely mean that.

          • JustJustin

            OMG! You all get mad at DL Hugley for blaming the victim and you are doing the SAME THING. So if a woman leaves her husband and calls her girlfriend (lets say the wife is bisexual), then does that give the husband the right to beat said girlfriend?

            • Renee

              You haven’t a clue if this woman is a victim or perp. It doesn’t list her in a police report as a victim or a pending court case. All you have is assumptions, as do I. Your set to vilify her and I am not.

            • Tried of judgemental women

              Please stop… some people are too simple minded to think outside the box!!!

              • Renee

                If you’d like to defend your point, do so. No need to name-call, it does you no favors.

        • louvres

          And the same women calling CS and yesterday Floyd Mayweather abusers are the ones defending this woman and Kenya!! Can you smell the BS? In fact I have already observed that it’s not about WHAT is done but WHO does it!

      • VVV

        Stop trying to rationalise irrational behaviour. The wife was wrong.

        • MollyTheMaid

          Yes, the wife was wrong. So was Columbus for instigating the whole scene and recording it instead of trying to stop it. So was the other lady for allowing herself to be used in this way… she knew what was up. They’re all grown and they’re all wrong.

          • VVV

            No offense, he could not have stopped it. The most he could have done was what he did to prove a case against the wife. Did you read where he was just released on bail on charges of domestic violence when this took place? If he had gotten involved in any way he was going right back to jail. So , he has evidence now to show that his wife isnt the poor helpless victim that she often claims she is

          • folamix

            I think, under no circumstances, should Columbus have put his hands on his wife, even if he was trying to break it up. This is a toxic situation made even worse by the introduction of this other woman

        • Renee

          Unless you were standing there watching this fight go down,along with Columbus, you have no idea if the wife is wrong. Don’t forget, she’s in THEIR HOME. This is more than likely why she didn’t go to jail & he’s just got hit with a violation of the restraining order….he wasn’t supposed to be there. You know, gathering his belongings,filming and what not.

          • VVV

            Why are you adamant on defending the wife? Is there something about this case that threatens your existence so you defend even when she was WRONG?

            • Renee

              Same could be asked of you. The wife went to the court, he went to TMZ. Why didn’t he do the same, when he has every recourse to do so? I’ll answer for you, that fool violated a RESTRAINING ORDER. I’ll let you work out the rest.

              • VVV

                You seem to equate stating that fighting someone is wrong with saying that Columbus is right, which are two different things. SHE WAS WRONG TO ATTACK ANOTHER WOMAN PERIOD. Her restraining order is against him but she isn’t attacking him in the video, she is attacking the friend.

                • Renee

                  Attack? Unless you have viewed footage that shows beginning to end, you have made a helluva judgement call sir/madam.

    • oh well

      I didn’t see the video, but she looks white…if my husband brought a white woman to my house, I would beat her down too.

      • JustJustin

        And you’d probably go to jail/prison.

        • oh well

          Doubt it. She would be trespassing on my property.

      • SimplePseudonym

        Note to your husband: bring a black woman instead. jk!

        • oh well

          Lol You are right. At that point, I can tell myself she is a relative to keep from giving her the beatdown!

      JustJustin, I really appreciate you bringing up the obvious point of woman-on-woman abuse! This kind of dysfunctional behavior is often seen as acceptable when it isn’t. That said, this video is clearly shown out of context & i suspect many things factored into the snippet that’s been released to the world.

      It’s so tempting to say more but since i have no idea what’s happening in their world…

      • JustJustin

        Exactly and the wife tweeted:

        Why do I the thing I do is beyond me. However. I’ma end this dude #missionaccomplished.

        • Island Girl

          Whoa! If she really tweeted that then she’s truly an idiot. The video together with that tweet is more than enough to show that she was on a ‘mission.’ Battered women, afraid for their lives don’t do this shyte…

    • CaribbeanGlow

      He should have used a mutual friend she’d be comfortable with.

  • Ash

    I just want these two to stay away from each other for awhile.

    • Kim Jones

      THESE TWO PEOPLE NEED TO PUT THEIR CHILDREN FIRST-THIS IS SICK AND SAD.

  • SheDevilsRule

    She was called to the house & obviously it wasn’t by the wife. He set her up. he record’s instead of breaking them up, and made damn sure he was heard at the end of the recording because he repeated the same sentence THREE times. he aint shyt!!

  • yasmeen

    I’m sorry, but he’s very abusive – this only reinforces how mentally abusive he is. Why would he call a woman to the house – she’s automatically going to assume he’s sleeping with her (probably). Then he pulls out a camera RATHER THAN BREAKING THE FIGHTING UP??? He’s nuts. His poor wife was obviously at her wits end with him and snapped.

    • louvres

      why should she assume anything?

  • KeepingItReal

    If another woman walks into YOUR home…with your husband…wouldn’t you beat her a$$? Just like if a stranger walked into your house…a homeowner has a right to shoot intruder. It just proves that Columbus Short is going out of his way to set his wife up and make her look bad. It’s not like the wife went to the woman’s home and barged in. The woman walked up into the wife’s home. If people are violent…there’s no need to “set them up” to show it. It will show. The fact that C.S. had to go out of his way to set his wife up to show that she’s violent…actually…shows the very opposite.

    • pisces03

      Exactly! Totally a set up. I wish my husband would. He’s crazy for real. smh

    • Renee

      She was dumb enough to enter that house, there’s no telling what came out of her mouth. Who knows, but she jumped up to get beat down. Couldn’t have been my house, she would’ve been carried out. Tanee needs to pack up and move as far as possible from this lunatic. Wasn’t he eerily calm? He’s beyond crazy, he’s dangerous.

    • JustJustin

      No, that is not what adults do.

      • Renee

        If you insert yourself into a already heated situation, it may not end well for you. The most dangerous time for a police officer is a domestic disturbance call. What was she thinking?! Also, we have no idea what took place before foolio pressed record. She was an idiot for going in that house, invited or otherwise.

        • JustJustin

          If a good friend called asking me to help them remove themselves and their property from a situation like this I would help. You may not feel that way and I understand but my point is I’d help with good intentions.

          • Renee

            Not without the police, I wouldn’t. The road to hell is paved with good intentions. I have married guy friends, aint no way in hell would I let one of them put me in that situation.

          • hollyw

            So as a man, you would call a woman to “help remove property”, huh…

            –_____–

            • JustJustin

              Not a man, but sometimes in a chaotic situation it’s about who is available. But I am done discussing it because it is obvious that you guys want this to be a Black&White, GoodGuy/BadGuy case.

              • Renee

                Police are always available, 3 numbers…911. “Yes, I need to remove my belonging from my house & I don’t want a confrontation with my wife”. Guess why he didn’t do that.

                • JustJustin

                  Im not defending him, Im defending the woman. Comprehension is key.

              • hollyw

                You can discuss or not at your will; it’s your choice and your opinion; however, the only one with a seemingly naive point of view is your own, as you clearly see no suspicion in this supposedly ‘black & white’ situation, ijs…

            • Absentminded

              So if he called her Tilly because he left a couple of shoes and maybe his laptop… your telling me he’s lying because you need a man to carry that? Quit being so biased… You’ve “heard” (not seen) one side of the story (female) and now refuse video proof because it sheds a negative light on her? Ill admit Columbus shouldn’t have don’t that because of common sense, but what laws did Columbus and the side piece break? Proof wins cases not common sense.

              • hollyw

                Please don’t act like you know my comprehension; I assure, it’s greater than yours. Again, your assumption makes no sense. Why would someone, male or female, ask a friend over to help them “move” a laptop and some shoes???

                JUST STOP!

                • Absentminded

                  Your either biased or bitter… I’m sure that with your high level of comprehension, that you’ll be able to decide for yourself…. BUT all I’m saying is how can you be submissive of the video but believe wholeheartedly that he threatened her etc? Were you there? Did you see what transpired with your own eyes? Or are you making assumptions like the rest of us?

                  • hollyw

                    1. You can’t even explain how the adjective “bitter” apples to this situation, my response, or anyone else’s, so it’s clear how that’s just a weak attempt to cover your subpar debate skills. Smh please do better.
                    2. I’m sure you meant “dismissive”, not “submissive”.
                    3. Where did I say he threatened her..? You must be confusing your convos. My position was, and always will be, that it’s bad to speculate from a video,.I.e. Tanee is a generally violent individual and/or abusive spouse. What you are repeatedly not getting is that all the things others are saying are actually NOT speculation, but proven facts, I.e. Columbus is a violent individual, evidenced by his previous domestic cases that he ADMITTED guilt, not all even with Tanee! Also, Columbus is an unstable individual, evidenced by his threat to end his own life in one of the disputes. Also, what is known is that he invited a female into a volatile situation, in which he, by his own admission, was attempting to prove his wife’s own propensity for violence, and not only resisted everyone else’s natural urge to protect a friend, but instead videotapes it. The end!

          • KeepingItReal

            You think he called a female “friend” to help him remove belongings? No male friends or gamily?? GTFOH….

        • hollyw

          Lmbo @ “foolio”

      • louvres

        Some Women think that they don’t have to control their emotions…they think that they have the right to snap on anyone..male or female!

      • hollyw

        You are grossly mistaken. Adults, children, adolescents, babies, all have a tendency for violence.

        There are only different threshholds. Obviously, she hit hers this day.

        • JustJustin

          No the different between those you mentioned and adults is maturity and the ability to express yourself without violence.

    • Mya

      I wouldn’t assault the woman. I would definitely be incredulous and I am fairly certain shouting would commence. What we dont know is what really happened. Who assaulted who first? I wish the wife just called the police as soon as she realized he was in the house instead of engage them.

    • Nadifa Foulds

      But they’re not together anymore? I mean, clearly there are still emotions there, but if you file a restraining order/divorce against your husband I would presume you are giving up your “rights” to your husband (should she even still be calling him that) and your input on who he allows around himself, as long is they pose no danger to your kids?

      • KeepingItReal

        Are you so stupid that you think…because you and your spouse is separated…you can bring a boyfriend or girlfriend up in the marital home??? Mayn….you NEED to get your a$$ beat. Go to a motel. Go to HER place. But…you don’t bring a lover up into the marital home…where the ex still resides. Mayn…people today have NO sense. No wonder there is so much violence. Sometimes…violence is justified.

    • Really

      Women set men up all the time I the same type of situations all the time

  • Laine

    So they were fighting, and he thought about recording it? And not about pulling them apart? What a loser… !

    • louvres

      He did the right thing! Men these days need to protect themselves from false accusations and unveil the mask especially if they are dealing with violent women because at the end of the day…if he doesn’t have any tangible proof, he will be the culprit!

      • hollyw

        No, men these days need to keep their hands to themselves, one, since he already has plenty of past PROVEN allegations, and two, keep them and their kids away from equally violent women. But of course, he likes to live in the crazy b/c why else welcome another woman onto the property you share with your wife, camera-ready?? Pu-lease.

        • AlrightyThen

          Thank you!!!

        • Britt

          Yeah, Columbus is wrong for filming but Tanee is clearly no punk. It looks real suspect to be beating up a woman the day after you have your husband arrested for domestic violence.

          • hollyw

            I don’t think so, looks pretty obvious to me…they’re both crazy! However, as one with the most power in a relationship (financial or physical; spousal, friendship, or parental), you must always be aware of yourself and not continuously put yourself in situations where someone will bring out the worst in you. It’s no secret that Columbus got a few screws loose, just looking at his relationship history. He also already has an abusive past, so she should’ve been left, and he should’ve peeped her ‘crazy’ long ago. Just the fact that he orchestrated this whole thing, though, strongly implies that he likes it.

            • louvres

              “However, as one with the most power in a relationship (financial or physical; spousal, friendship, or parental), you must always be aware of yourself and not continuously put yourself in situations where someone will bring out the worst in you.”
              You can tell HER the exact same thing and that is EXACTLY WHY he videotaped the whole thing. If he didn’t show this side of her, he would have go out as the ONLY crazy one in the relationship!

              • hollyw

                …mmkay, you clearly did not understand that analogy, as the same thing cannot be said to her b/c she is in the opposite situation…anyway, him “proving” her crazy (which he didn’t, since the tape clearly only shows that she’s capable of violence, w/o a catalyst to indicate WHY she became so) still does not help his case, as it has already been proven that he is violent against women, and he STILL couldn’t show that she’s violent against him, who is the only relevant party in her divorce proceeding?? *sighhh*

                • Renee

                  This man has cut off his own nose to spite his face. This is what happens when a controlling person loses all control.

                  • hollyw

                    Perfect analogy, and you are right, both he and Floyd got serious control issues, can’t even see the insanity of it.

      • bkenya

        so he has to protect his self, but his “friend” comes away with “cervical pain, multiple bruises” and he doesnt get help? or pull the friend out of the situation?

        • Renee

          Their trying to justify his nutty behavior. They must know men who do this on a regular & jump in their cars to go “help”. Not one person who siding w/him has said why wasn’t the police an option in getting his stuff. Not one. That speaks volumes about their own thought process.

    • VVV

      He was already accused of domestic violence. He did the smartest thing because had he intervened, he would have been right back in jail on violation of bail because all the wife had to do was run to the court and say he and his friend beat her up.

      • louvres

        EACTLY! These women acting like they don’t know how things like that work! In a DV case a man just NEVER wins especially if he has done some foolery in his past!A woman has circonstances , a man doesn’t ! he must protect himself!

    • Really

      Just like all the other losers that record fights instead of breaking it up…and then posting the video on World Star or YouTube

  • ShadyLady

    The real question….What happened before Columbus started recording??? Hmmm…

    • louvres

      If you saw HIM fighting a friend of his wife would you ask that question?

      • MollyTheMaid

        You mean if she brought a man to his home and he was fighting with the man while she was videoing??? Yes, I would ask the exact same question!!!

        • ShadyLady

          Thank you!

      • hollyw

        No female with common sense would walk into a volatile domestic situation, no matter how her friend begged. She would stand herself outside and call the police!

        • louvres

          What I can’t stand is why women think that their “emotions” give them the right to use violence whenever the feel like it! You don’t beat up someone UNLESS in self defense! Period!

          • Li

            I agree. I had a friend who would literally attack her boyfriend whenever she SUSPECTED (without any proof) that he was doing dirt. She used her emotions as a justification for EVERYTHING. I always thought she was bipolar or just plain crazy.

          • hollyw

            Who are you even directing this to..?

            • Rissie75

              Wait I thought it was Tanee who spit??!?!!….I have to watch it again!

            • Rissie75

              It was the wife who spit not the “Friend” still bad tho….Hope they both get help for the sake of the kids,

    • MollyTheMaid

      I have the same question. How exactly did this physical altercation start? Maybe the other woman threw the first punch and she and Columbus chose not to let TMZ see that part of the video. We’ll never know. Columbus and his wife both need anger management. Grown folks don’t need to act out like this. It’s not healthy.

    • Huh?

      My question is, why is he standing there recording the fight instead of trying to pull Tanee off of his friend? If I was the friend, I would be like, “How are you just going to stand there and watch me get dragged, while recording it, and then ask me if I’m ok?”

    • Absentminded

      LOL really? Did you ask what happened first when she filed her police report about being threatened?

      • ShadyLady

        Yes. I did.

  • YesHunty

    Columbus and his wife BOTH have issues that need immediate attention. Who is this woman? Have they had “relations” in the past that his wife knows about? Why did he get her involved in the first place? So sloppy and messy. I hope they BOTH get help.

    • NOPe

      Classic deflection.

    • Sunbubbles

      So wait, two women are fighting in your presence. One is your wife and the other is your ‘friend’ and your course of action is to start filming?
      Lol Ah bwoi
