Court documents detail domestic abuse and death threats from Columbus Short.

A terrifying encounter with a drunken, knife-wielding mad man threatening murder and suicide sounds like the plot of an episode of Scandal. But for series star Columbus Short‘s wife, Tuere Tanee Short, it was horrifying reality on the night of April 7, when she claims the actor assaulted her in their home. Tuere provided a terrifying account of that night to a Los Angeles court when she filed for a temporary restraining order against her husband as part of their ongoing divorce proceedings on April 14, and only has the entire narrative of what she says she endured — in her own chilling words.
