Columbus Short's Wife

HELP! He Ransacked Our Home!!

EXCLUSIVE

0429_columbus_short_tmz2Columbus Short doesn't know when to stop -- at least according to his wife, who claims the former "Scandal" star broke into their house over Easter weekend ... and ransacked the joint.

Short's wife Tanee has filed new court docs, claiming Short busted into their marital home while she was away -- despite a restraining order barring him from the premises -- and left a trail of destruction in his wake.

Tanee claims Short broke a door off its hinges, ripped off her bed sheets, left on a bunch of lights (electricity ain't cheap) -- and made her fear for her safety and the safety of their 2-year-old daughter.

TMZ broke the story, Tanee obtained the restraining order earlier this month, claiming Short put a knife to her throat and threatened to kill her. The order bars Short from entering their home, but he's fighting it ... insisting he has the right to come and go as he pleases because his name is on the lease.

Tanee says the break-in is further proof the restraining order is necessary.

We reached out to Columbus' lawyer ... so far, no word back.

Some murder/suicides can be seen before it happens. This boy lost his family, his spot on a top rated show and of course, his money. He's about to snap!

Columbus must be conducting a study on how many violent crimes a celebrity needs to commit before they are locked up. You can stop now Columbus. Chris Brown has almost completed that research.

Beware police: this guy has lost his family and job and has demonstrated violent behavior. He very likely could act out against himself or others. Let's prevent a tragedy.

He is nuts and this woman is in serious danger. He should be locked up or put into a mental institution and treated for his problems before he winds up killing her. When a woman leaves her abusive husband, that is when she is most in danger. Tanee should leave that home and go somewhere that he doesn't know about and where he can't find her. Also, her parents and siblings should be cautious because sometimes these types of men will go after the family, like what happened with Jennifer Hudson's sister. You have to take these things very seriously because people's lives are at stake.
