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:
