Columbus Short’s Wife Files For Divorce

Entertainment & Celebrities / September 14, 2013

I feel like I had a flash back of when Andrea Kelly revealed that she was married to R. Kelly..SAY WHAT?  That is the same way that I felt when I heard that Columbus Short’s wife filed for divorce!  Who knew?  I had no idea that Scandal star, Columbus Short was even married.  Did you?

According to Radar Online, Short’s wife, Tanee McCall, (Tuere) filed for divorce in Los Angeles on September 11. She is seeking sole custody of their 19 month old daughter, Ayala, spousal support and that he pay all her legal fees.

This is actually Short’s second marriage and because of his affair with Britney Spears, that marriage to Brandi, ended.  According to Entertainment Weekly, he was caught kissing his then boss, Britney Spears, while his wife was pregnant with their first child.  Short used to be a backup dancer for Spears.

Short told Star Magazine about his affair:

It’s true I slept with Britney, [but] we never had sex because another person was in the room at the time. ‘We shared a bed and were really close, kissing and hugging. The chemistry was magical… our feelings were so strong.  Too strong, in fact, for Spears’ caretakers. Britney’s mom, Lynne, stepped in to prevent that as soon as our feelings started to develop

‘It would be fair to say Britney caused major problems in our marriage.  Sadly, we’re now getting divorced.  Still, despite everything that happened, I’ll always remember those special moments with Britney.


Well…well…well…sexy Mr. Short could have very well been a client of Olivia Pope’s with all the scandals he had going on.
