“All of a sudden, I’m more famous for being an alleged abuser than I am for the work I really put in my entire life,” he said.
He also talked about experiencing anxiety reading about false accusations. “Every time a headline comes out I go into these panic attacks. So I’m like man, let me get out in front of this thing. I wasn’t advised to do that. I just did that. I think that wasn’t the best thing to do, but I said it. You know what? I stopped the press because they tucked that story.”
Short added, “Let me tell you what really happened. I asked my wife to leave the home due to my frustration, and I grabbed her phone which I shouldn’t have did, and I scratched her hand.”
When have reported that Columbus Short has been involved in multiple altercations with his wife. He was recently charged with two misdemeanors for his February 3rd incident.
