BREAKING: Columbus Short Caught In ‘SCANDAL’ & Makes Terrorist Threats To Business Associate [Photos]
Just when it looks like things are going great for actor Columbus Short, he has found himself in the middle of a ‘Scandal.’ The actor who ironically stars in the hit ABC show ‘Scandal‘ has found himself in the middle of one of his own. According to documents EXCLUSIVELY OBTAINED BY JASON LEE, Columbus who plays an attorney on television could find himself in court as a defendant in a matter involving threats of physical harm, slander, and defamation.
Jason Lee caught up with CEO Keith Aaron of BVCG, a bay area consulting group that deals with businesses, brands, and bankers. Keith exclusively talked with us about these shocking documents and didn’t hold back:
Jason Lee: What happened here?
Keith Aaron: I have been helping his wife [Tanee] with her internet based show ‘Sports In The City’, helping her with packaging it for a television deal and Columbus wanted to put his two cents in. He jumped on the phone and bullied his way into the conversation. When we didn’t agree he began making threats on the phone. He kept demanding I answer his questions and was very demeaning. When I felt the conversation was going in a place that wasn’t professional I told him he needed to calm down. That’s when he began to make threats about having his homeboys in Oakland find me.”
JL: So then what happened?:
KA: I hung up and that’s when he began texting me all kinds of threats.
JL: Did you file a police report or a restraining order?
KA: I called the police in my town but they couldn’t file it here so I have to go to Los Angeles to file the restraining order. I do a lot of business in LA and if you read his text messages I’m concerned for my safety.
The text messages from Columbus are SHOCKINGLY DISTURBING! In the messages Columbus is repeatedly asking for Keith’s location so he can meet up with him. He even refers to himself as a “suicide bomber” and says “we are about to travel first class to hell.” WOW!
Check out the text messages:
Well Keith isn’t taking any chance. The CEO took control of the situation and brought in his attorney’s to make sure he and his family were safe. Out of what he calls “extreme fear for his life and safety” Keith sent Columbus and his wife a CEASE & DESIST order demanding that the threats and harassment stop immediately! Check out the legal document sent to Columbus below!
Not sure how this is all going to play out but one thing for sure, either Columbus’ idea of ‘keeping it real’ is potentially jeopardizing his role on a hit show, OR he is cocky enough to believe that ABC thinks highly enough of his acting ability that he can’t be fired. Either way, this is CRAZY! We hope that Columbus does the right thing and resolves this immediately before Shonda Rhimes kills off his character!
There is clearly two sides to every story. If Columbus wants to discuss he can contact us and we’d love to talk to him!
We want to know what you think of all this madness! SOUND OFF!
