Columbus Short has definitely seen better weekends.

The former Scandal star is freshly removed from the blow of a new court order that instructs him to pay his soon-to-be-ex-wife Tanee a monthly sum in the range of $25,000. Now, his recent past of violence is finally punching back as the Felton Hyche III, the man it was widely alleged that Short beat down in March, has decided to sue.

All for the notion that his reputation has been more damaged than his physical injuries. He is blaming all this on TMZ, of course.

Via TMZ:

Former “Scandal” star Columbus Short is being sued by a man who claims he was humiliated by getting sucker punched by the actor.

Felton Hyche III claims in a new lawsuit … he was at an engagement party at a West L.A.sports bar in March when he and Columbus started arguing. As we reported, the beef erupted when Hyche said, “You might be richer than me but I get my girls to buy me everything I want, including your wife.”

Hyche claims in his suit … Columbus sucker punched him, breaking his cheek and orbital bones and sending him to the hospital.

But adding insult to injury, Hyche says he has to “endure ridicule from strangers as the man who was knocked out by Columbus Short.”

He’s pissed at TMZ — although he does refer to it as “popular” — for displaying his “lifeless and beaten face” to the world.

In April, Hyche refused to allow his name released to the public and stated that he would not be pressing charges, as he felt more comfortable settling out of court.

Hearts change like the seasons, so here we are. Just in case you need a refresher as to what happened to Hyche on that day in question, jump over the next page.
