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.
