Embattled actor Columbus Short, who was quasi-fired from Scandal following his domestic violence arrest in February, has gone on the viral offensive against his wife.
He shot a video to show his estranged spouse, Tanee McCall, was the violent one in their relationship ... and this clip certainly doesn't hurt his argument.
Columbus Short was arrested for domestic violence for an incident at his house February 18, having been accused of assaulting his wife that night.
The next day, after Columbus bailed out of jail, he asked his friend Tilly Key to come over to his house to pick him up. At that point, Tanee went ballistic.
When she saw that Tilly was in the house, Tanee (on top) attacked; Tilly gave the video to TMZ to prove that Tanee is violent ... even threatening her life.
She feared for it, too. Tilly alleges that she suffered a concussion, a cervical sprain, multiple contusions, a lumbar sprain and lumbar strain as a result of this.
Tanee has filed for divorce and sought a protective order forcing Columbus (who was also arrested in an unrelated fight in March) out of the house.
She also claims he recently invaded and ransacked the home.
The two filed for divorce in 2013, but reconciled, only to find themselves in the midst of a heated divorce with criminal and legal ramifications once again.
Short said in a statement after leaving Scandal, "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, who have become like a second family to me in such a short amount of time."
You can always watch Scandal online at TV Fanatic to see Short at his best, as we hope all parties can resolve this ugliness sooner rather than later.
He doesn't need to end up in this gallery a second time ...
