The estranged wife of Columbus Short claims the former “Scandal” actor broke into their home over the weekend and ransacked it, TMZ reports.
Tanee McCall-Short alleged in court documents that Short broke in to their marital home on Easter Sunday while she was away, despite a restraining order requiring him to say away from the premises. McCall-Short claims Short broke a door off its hinges, left the lights on, ripped off bed sheets and made her fear for her safety and that of their 2-year-old daughter.
In April, McCall-Short filed a restraining order against Short, claiming that he held a knife to her neck and threatened to kill her. While the order insists that he cannot go to the home, Short is fighting it because his name is on the lease and he feels he should be able to come and go as he pleases. McCall-Short says that the break-in further proves that the restraining order is needed.
