Columbus Short‘s life continues to be a prime example of how not to flourish. The former Scandal star has been ordered out his rental by a judge after falling just a month behind in rent.

Reports TMZ:

Short had been renting a place outside L.A. … in the Valley … for $6,995/month, but his landlord gave him the heave-ho once he fell about a month behind on the rent.

The landlord must have been aware of Short’s recent track record, because he got a court order giving Short 5 days to get the hell out. Turned out to be unnecessary though … since Columbus bolted on his own. The landlord tells us he’s not sure if the actor paid back rent before leaving.

But hey, any exit Columbus makes these days without a fight … is a good one.

Keep this in mind, Columbus short was making $65K per episode of Scandal.  All he had to do was exercise some chill, and he would probably still have the gig.
