Columbus Short

Dodges 'Scandal' Question

... REALLY Dodges Wife Question

4/18/2014 6:11 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

041814_columbus_short_launch_v2Columbus Short told our photog, "I don't know what all the noise is about" ... referring to the rumor he may get fired from "Scandal" because he's being prosecuted for brutalizing his wife -- she even says he put a knife to her throat.  But Columbus says, "Everything's great."

Short was in Hollywood last night where he hosted a "Scandal" finale (OMG!!!!!)) viewing party and also promoted his new song. 

His "everything's great" line ignores the fact that he's being prosecuted for domestic violence and child abuse, his wife got a restraining order kicking him out of the house after alleging he threatened to kill her at knifepoint, she's filed for divorce, he was recently arrested for beating up a guy in a bar, he was arrested for another alleged domestic violence incident, and he pled no contest to assaulting a guy on a basketball court.

Columbus bailed on us Thursday ... agreeing to appear on TMZ Live and then pulling the plug at the last second. 

He was quick to change the topic when we asked him about the big cliffhanger from last night (OMG!!!!!).

Seems Short's fate is up in the air both on screen (OMG!!!!!) and off.

If he put a knife to his wife throat he should not be on television he is no role model he should be in jail because all he does is terrorize people even his own family. The only thing is if he does loose his job with his temper his wife better watch out because he will probably come for her for reporting him

Did he seriously say that "He doesn't know what all the noise is about?" Wow, maybe that is part of the problem.

I do not like to prosecute people in the public til this goes to court...I want evidence TMZ. As an actor he seems great in the role and yes OMG is right from last nights Scandal episode.
