The HOT 97 Morning Show


 

Columbus Short has had a rough month.The Scandal star who plays the character Harrison and works for Olivia Pope Associates (crisis management company) on the show has been fired. We're not sure if you recall, but earlier this month he got into a bar fight, in which he's still under investigation. He also got into a heated fight with his wife a few weeks ago we're he threatened to kill her and himself. Short's wife has filed for divorce and has ordered that he move out, but matters keep getting worse for Columbus.

He put out this statement explaining that he won't be returning for a season 4 of Scandal.

"At this time I must confirm my exit from a show I’ve called home for 3 years, with what is the most talented ensemble on television today. I would like to first thank [creator] Shonda Rhimes for the opportunity to work with such an amazing cast. Thank you GLADIATORS, who have supported me throughout my entire career and of course to ABC and Shondaland for allowing me to play such a pivotal role in the Scandal series. I have enjoyed every single minute of it. Everything must come to an end and unfortunately the time has come for Harrison Wright to exit the canvas. I wish nothing but the best for Shonda, Kerry and the rest of the cast, who have become like a second family to me in such a short amount of time. For this, I will forever be grateful.”
