Columbus Short

NAILED By Wife in Court

6/25/2014 3:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Columbus Short Child SupportColumbus Short is learning a lot about the legal system these days ... today's lesson -- you don't show up in family court and your wife will take you to the cleaners.

The former "Scandal" star was just ordered to fork over a whopping $17,005 a month in spousal support to estranged wife Tanee Short.  And if that's not enough, he also has to pay $4,542 a month in child support.

But wait ... there's more.  Columbus got tagged for $25,000 to cover Tanee's legal bills.

Short's side of the counsel table was empty.  No Short, no lawyer.

Short hasn't even responded to Tanee's divorce petition.

Blood ... meet turnip.

In the words of Fred Sanford: You big dummy! But seriously, homey doesn't have his job on Scandal anymore so good luck to his wife collecting the money. The upside is that if he doesn't pay up, the judge will throw his sorry, stupt, woman-beating azz in jail.

california judges showing their stupidity again. nobody needs that kind of loot to life on just because they were married at one time. these child support obligations are equally as dumb but they achieve the goal of keeping women off welfare. think of it as the robin hood system. they should rename it.

Cha Ching! He messed up bigtime laying his hands on her. Payday! That's a nice chunk of change Mrs Golddigger got. He better be in contact with Vivid so she can get her payday down and maybe have a few bucks left over for a value meal a few times a week.

Doesn't matter what she was rewarded. He didn't show up to contest it. Similar things happen in drivers court. He's stupid.
