Columbus Short Threw a ‘Scandal’ Premiere Party in Atlanta


Embattled actor Columbus Short celebrated the death of his Scandal character by hosting a send-off party in Atlanta, Georgia on Thursday night.

The star was fired from the hit TV drama over the summer, amid a series of troubles in his private life, including accusations he beat up his wife, Tanee McCall-Short, during a row in April.

Despite pleading no contest to misdemeanor spousal battery last month and receiving a sentence of three years probation, 30 days of community labor, and counseling for domestic violence, Short wants to expunge the case from his official record, insisting “I didn’t do it”.

He told the New York Daily News, “I took a deal when I didn’t really know what was going on. It was so rushed. I was in custody, and I was trying to make it to (another) courthouse (for another case)… I’ve never touched a woman, never touched a woman like that in my life. She’s (Tanee) just upset, a woman scorned.”

Short wasn’t about to let the drama overshadow his planned farewell to character Harrison Wright at the Boogalou Lounge in Atlanta.

The actor tipped fans off to his big event via Instagram, revealing he’ll also be celebrating the release of his new Scandal-related single “Gladiator” at the bash.
