Columbus Short, who many in the Dallas, Texas, area may recognize from his role on the popular television series, “Scandal,” is heading to divorce court. His wife filed papers earlier this month on the West Coast. The two married in July 2005 and have a 2-year-old child together. Short’s wife is seeking full legal and physical custody of the girl.
Alongside the divorce papers is another set of legal documents that may impact the custody battle in the dissolution. Sources say that Tuere Tanee Short has obtained a temporary restraining order against the Scandal star. Sources say that the protective order arose out of allegations of a dispute between Short and his wife on April 7.
