Columbus Short Made $65K Per Scandal Episode, Wife Is Looking To Get Paid


Columbus Short‘s fantastic year of struggle continues. The now former Scandal actor’s soon to be ex-wife has filed paperwork to up her spousal support, claims she’s jobless and says Short was cheap with his dough.

Reports TMZ:

His soon-to-be-ex, Tanee Short filed new docs in their nasty divorce … in which she says Columbus earned more than $2.3 million over the last 3.5 years … the biggest chunk of that from “Scandal” — which paid him $64,900 per show.

She also claims he raked in an average of 10 grand a pop for nightclub appearances.

Tanee says she’s unemployed and lists very limited assets — some gym equipment and a couple of pieces of jewelry … a watch and the wedding ring Columbus gave her, worth $3,500.

Tanee was awarded a whopping $17,005 a month in spousal support … and another $4,595 in child support back in May — but those numbers could be adjusted, up or down, once the court gets updated financial info.

Tanee Short is pulling in $17K a month and wants even more money despite the fact that the Scandal gravy train is a wrap?

Cold world.

      This man is unstable at best; financially speaking he’s likely to squander his assets and leave nothing for the kids. As his wife, I want the money for safe keeping to safeguard our children’s future.

      Not everything is about trying to win a war.

    That’s what happens to dumb azzzes who get married while rich…Marriage is for poor and stupid people. Now what money he has left will be siphoned off via outrageous alimony, child support and legal fees. Unless this nyggguh gets it together, he’ll be penniless within 2 to 3 years.


    If this is true, I now see why most bros don’t bother with us sista’s or wife them for that matter or vise versa. The greedy cow want more then she blooddy can chew!
