Columbus Short Issues Statement About Domestic Violence Episode And Personal Drama

April 17, 2014  |  

We’ve heard a lot about Columbus Short’s personal life these days. From knocking out a man at a bar in March to more than one domestic violence episode in his home with his wife since the year started, it seems that the man who appears so cool and calm as Harrison on Scandal, is falling apart behind-the-scenes in his real life. And while we’ve heard from everyone but Short, who has continued on despite all these claims with an upbeat attitude and smile on his face at events and while moving out and about, he’s finally speaking out. Short’s publicist’s reached out to share this short statement from the actor:

“As you all know, lately my personal life has been subjected to a lot of press.  As much as I would like to provide my side of events, my counsel has instructed me that a Court of law is the only and proper venue to deal with such matters.  Accordingly, I must refrain from making any comments even though that is very difficult for me under the circumstances. Thank you to my fans for your continued support during this difficult time.”

So there you have it, he’s going to try in clear his name in court it seems. But as for the court of public opinion,we’re not sure if things are looking too good.

What do you think of his statement?
