Columbus Short - Columbus Short Speaks Out Over Personal Woes

Troubled actor/singer Columbus Short insists he is focused on the future despite his growing personal problems.

The Scandal star was charged with felony aggravated battery last month (Mar14) after a California judge issued a warrant for his arrest following a bar brawl.

He was also ordered to stay away from the alleged victim and is awaiting trial.

On Tuesday (15Apr14), his estranged wife Tanee MCCall-Short won a restraining order after Short allegedly threatened to kill her during a bust-up at their house in California earlier this month (Apr14).

The ruling also requires Short to move out of the family home, but he has now spoken out to insist he is coping in the midst of his personal woes.

He tells People.com, "To be honest with you, I'm feeling raw, focused, vulnerable and in a perfect place to write great music. God's been preparing me for a long time to deal with this season of my life. Being able to have thick skin is something that is needed."

Short also revealed he remains oblivious to the scandals by avoiding media coverage, adding, "You want to know the truth? I don't read anything. I don't read the good stuff and I don't read the bad stuff, because if I read the good stuff, I've got to read the bad stuff. I don't allow myself to make agreements with nonsense so I just don't take it in."
