Agostina Laneri filed for a restraining order against Short last week, claiming he was emotionally abusive to her and physically abusive to her child.

Laneri also claims Short, who was fired from Scandal after a series of arrests last year, hit her child, justifying it by saying he needed to learn.

She also claims that Columbus Short’s violent threats and rants included a boast that he would off Jamie Foxx, for reasons unbeknownst to anyone.

“If I choose to kill one of these n–gas … I will do that. I’m that crazy n–ga that will be on the news as the n–ga that murked [murdered] Jamie Foxx.”

“Y’all should be very afraid. Very afraid.”

Columbus, who was also accused of violent behavior toward wife Tanee McCall, allegedly told Agostina, “Don’t forget who I am. I have a knife.”  

Short has been ordered to stay 100 yards away from Laneri and her son, and will likely be keeping his distance from TV and movies going forward.
