Scandal star Columbus Short's estranged wife has won a restraining order against the actor after he allegedly threatened to kill her during a fight last week (ends11Apr14). In re-filing divorce papers in a Los Angeles court on Tuesday (15Apr14), Tanee McCall-Short also slapped her estranged husband with the order. In documents obtained by TMZ.com, Short and his wife were involved in an altercation at their home in California on 7 April (14). She claims he was intoxicated and pretended to hit her with a wine bottle before pouring the alcohol on her. She also alleges the 31 year old picked up a kitchen knife, pinned her down on a couch and began to choke her, demanding to know if she had been unfaithful with other men. Tanee alleges Columbus put the knife to her throat and suggested he would murder her before killing himself. According to the filing, she states he also slashed the tires of her car as she attempted to escape. The restraining order requires Columbus to move out of the couple's family home. In the divorce papers, she cites irreconcilable differences, and is requesting sole custody of their two-year-old daughter Ayala. This isn't the only existing restraining order against the dancer-turned-actor - earlier this month (Apr14), Columbus was ordered to stay away from a man he reportedly assaulted during a bar fight in March (14).
