Actor Columbus Short threatens to kill his wife and commit suicide

Troubled actor Columbus Short has been ordered to stay away from his estranged wife, Tuere Short and their daughter after allegedly threatening to kill her and then himself…

From TMZ
Scandal" star Columbus Short has been thrown out of his house and his wife has filed for divorce ... after he allegedly put a knife to her throat last week and threatened to kill her and himself. According to a new restraining order -- obtained by TMZ -- Short got into it with his wife April 7 at their Chatsworth home, where she claims he came into her room intoxicated with a wine bottle in hand, acted like he was going to hit her with the bottle and then unloaded the wine on her.
Tuere Short claims Columbus then ran to the kitchen for a knife, pinned her to the couch and began choking her.  She says he then demanded they play a game he called "Truth or Truth."  He allegedly said if she lied he would stab her in the leg.

She says he then started naming men he believed she was having affairs with.  She denied them all but he allegedly then put the knife to her throat and threatened murder/suicide.  As she tried escaping she says he slashed her tire.

The restraining order requires Columbus to move out of the house.  We've learned cops were there today to ensure the peace as he moved out. 

Tuere also filed for divorce Tuesday, citing irreconcilable differences and asking for sole custody of their 2-year-old daughter. 

In addition to the incident April 7th, Short has been charged with criminal domestic violence and child abuse for allegedly abusing Tuere while their child and his son were in the house.  He pled not guilty.  And he was arrested for yet another alleged domestic violence incident a few weeks earlier.

It's interesting ... just last month -- after the first 2 domestic violence arrests -- Columbus and his wife put on a united front at The Grove in L.A.

    U must be an ignorant goat, the man is on drugs and everyone knows that one of the side effects of drugs is paranoia so this paranoid bastard threatened to kill his wife. I know of a Nigerian drug addict that did exactly same thing, he strangled his partner severally, when the partner complained of his actions to the parents of the guy, they became his chearleader however when the partner had enough she decided to use mirror effect. Trust me it worked like magic!

    Goats will always blame everything on the woman. If you start drinking, you've always had it in you; nobody pushed you! If you're unhappy in your home, there are so many other ways to handle it including marriage counseling etc and if they all don't work, you can leave! Men blame everything on women, including their stupid acts; yet they go out and cheat all the time, once their wives have had a couple of kids, they'll start looking outside for fine younger girls leaving the wife feeling depressed but they'll say they're just being men. The wife will then just focus all her energy on her kids bcos that's all she's got left at that point, she doesn't turn to drinking or drugs o! But men will turn to all sorts and blame it on the woman. If women get guns and knives out to shoot or kill men every single time they cheat, do you think there'll be that much men left in the world? Especially in Nigeria? Abegi!
