Laneri claims she had to get a restraining order against Short because she feared for not only her safety but for her child’s as well. She is also accusing the former Britney Spears alleged lover and backup dancerof being emotionally abusive to her and physically abusive to her child.
The court document states that Short, who was fired last April from “Scandal” amid allegations of domestic violence toward his wife, Tanee, told Laneri, “If I choose to kill one of these n*ggers…I will do that. I’m that crazy n*gger that will be on the news as the n*gger that murked [murdered] Jamie Foxx.” Laneri also alleges the 32-year-old Short then continued with his threat, “Y’all should be very afraid. Very afraid.”
Columbus had been previously charged with criminal domestic violence and child abuse last April, after he reportedly struck his wife while their child and his son were in the house. The actor pled not guilty. Just weeks earlier, Short was arrested for another domestic violence charge again, involving Tanee.
According to Laneri, Short struck her son and justified his actions by stating that the child was way past due.
Short has reportedly been court ordered to remain at least 100 yards away from Laneri and also her son.
