Columbus Short

Fired From 'Scandal'

Because of Scandal

4/25/2014 2:52 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

Columbus Short Fired ScandalColumbus Short will NOT be returning to "Scandal" -- and sources connected with ABC says it's because the network decided to give him the axe over allegations of domestic violence.

Columbus just released this statement:  "At this time I must confirm my exit from a show I've called home for 3 years, with what is the most talented ensemble in television today."

Short goes on: "Everything must come to an end and unfortunately the time has come for Harrison Wright to exit the canvas.  I wish nothing but the best for Shonda, Kerry and the rest of the cast..."

Short story ... it would appear Harrison ate the bullet that was aimed at him in the season finale.

TMZ broke the story ... Short's wife just got a restraining order against him after he allegedly put a knife to her throat and threatened to kill her.  He's also been charged in connection with another incident with domestic violence and child abuse.  He was arrested for yet another incident of alleged domestic abuse.  And he was arrested recently for allegedly clocking a dude in a bar.

Dude's out of control. Nothing like being your own worst enemy.

Glad he's been fired. It will give him time to focus on his 'issues' that led to his loss of a very good job, a court case for assault and a marriage gone wrong.
