Columbus Short Ordered To Pay Estranged Wife $21.5K Monthly

It’s safe to say Columbus Short has seen better days.

Between assault charges and legal spats with his estranged wife, Tanee McCall-Short, the former Scandal star now has some financial issues to handle.

Despite being M.I.A. in family court, Short has been ordered by a judge to pay $17,005 in spousal support and $4,542 in child support a month, TMZ reports. If that price tag wasn’t enough, he is also paying for her $25,000 legal fees.

After stepping down from his role as Harrison in the hit ABC series, Short has been dabbling in the comedy and music scene, looking for his next break.
