Columbus Short's Wife Kicks Him Out of the House for Alleged 'Cheating' as Actor Responds It's Not 'the First Time I've Been Homeless'
The star has had a challenging few years
Former Scandal actor Columbus Short says he’s looking for a new place to stay. The star was kicked out of the house after his wife Karrine Steffans posted an Instagram photo accusing him of cheating, according to both of their social media accounts.
In a post on Instagram, Steffans, 37, wrote “Somebody come get @officialcshort cheating ass and all his s—.” She also posted a video of Short’s belongings strewn throughout the house.
Short responded with a series of tweets, in which he wrote “it’s unfortunate that way things end up.”
“It ain’t the first time I’ve been homeless,” he tweeted. “But will definitely be the last!! When it’s all said and done stand strong stand tall.”
Short, 33, and Steffans, the author of the 2005 memoir Confessions of a Video Vixen quietly wed last year, according to an Instagram post Steffans shared last year.
Short was previously married to Tuere Tanee Short, who filed for divorce in April 2014, alleging he threatened to kill her and himself. She was granted a temporary restraining order at the time, according to documents filed in Los Angeles Superior Court. The former couple has a daughter together. Short was fired from Scandal shortly after the divorce filing.
In September 2015, the star plead no contest to punching a man out at a restaurant in L.A. in 2014. He avoided jail time, but was sentenced to three years formal probation, 60 days of community service and was ordered to attend and complete 26 anger management classes.
In 2014 year, Short told Access Hollywood Live that substance abuse was to blame for his problems.
“I’ll be candid. I was struggling with drugs, I had a lot on my plate, and you know, I was using unhealthy ways to kind of self-medicate and deal with a lot of heavy duty stuff in my life,” Short said.
