Former Scandal actor Columbus Short made sure to make the holidays memorable for him and several others this year.
Short, whose personal struggles with drug abuse and domestic violence resulted in a boot from the ABC drama, partnered with the women’s shelter Elizabeth House in Los Angeles to deliver more than 300 presents to four homes belonging to domestic abuse victims and their families. According to TMZ, He also used $2,000 of his own money to help out. He collected the gifts at the Sayers Club in L.A. According to a Facebook event. Timothy Bloom and V Bozeman were performers at the “Operation Santa” toy drive, which was hosted by Short.
In early 2016, his ex-wife Karrine Steffans accused him of cheating on Instagram, and subsequently filed a restraining order against him after she alleged he “kicked their bedroom door down in a drunken rage.” Both of his ex-wives have accused him of domestic violence. Despite the incidents of the past, Short is trying his hand at turning things around for the new year. Keep up the nice work.
