ICYMI: Columbus Short Talks ‘Scandal’ and Substance Abuse

The past year has been one of destructive turbulence for actor Columbus Short. After being fired from ‘Scandal’ at the growing heights of its popularity and his star power, a string of volatile reports and arrests swamped Short’s existence.

From feuds with his wife, claims of infidelity, and a temper that caused disruption during a friends wedding followed by a separate night of public intoxication which led to another jail stint, Columbus’s road and career were on the declins.

After a candid interview on Access Hollywood, Columbus made it public knowledge that he was abusing drugs and alcohol during his time on Scandal. Admitting that his life went on a downward spiral following the death of a friend, he also noted that there is no bad blood between he and his former Scandal fam. Most importantly, they just wanted him to get himself together.
