Bad news for ‘Scandal’ actor Columbus Short. The actor’s wife has just filed for divorce after eight years of marriage.
According to Radar Online, Short’s wife, Tanee McCall-Short (aka “Tuere”) has just filed for divorce, in Los Angeles on September 11, citing irreconcilable differences.
The couple, married in 2005, have a 19 month old daughter together, Ayala.
In her filing, Tuere is also seeking spousal support, her legal expenses covered and full custody of their daughter.
The divorce will be Short’s second.
His first marriage ended following a fling with pop star Britney Spears! Yeah, you read that correctly.
Of the “affair” Short was quoted as saying, “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. Britney’s mom, Lynne, stepped in to prevent that as soon as our feelings started to develop.”
He added, “It would be fair to say Britney caused major problems in our marriage. Sadly, we’re now getting divorced. Despite everything that happened, I’ll always remember those special moments with Britney.”
We wish the actress and his wife the best.
