Just when we thought it couldn’t get anymore scandalous. According to Columbus Short’s ex-wife, the hottie actor was dead broke before joining Scandal. Tanee claims that the Stomp the Yard star was not worth much prior to taking on the role of Harrison Wright, explaining why her wedding ring is only worth $3,500.
In documents related to the couple’s pending divorce, Tanee states that Columbus saw a serious increase in funds as he was being paid $64,900 per episode, accruing more than $2.3 million over the past 3.5 years. Short also allegedly makes $10,000 for outside appearances.
But now that Columbus has been released from his role on Scandal and could possibly face jail time there’s a huge chance that this former Gladiator will be right back to square one.
