Columbus Short’s rise and fall should be a cautionary tale for any celebrity. In what seemed like an overnight event. This promising young man went from an amazing career and cushy gig on ABC’s Scandal to cocaine use, domestic violence with his first wife, then marrying and separating from Supahead–we mean Karrine Steffans. Yep, it has been all bad. Well at least he has been out of the news for awhile. Nevertheless, Columbus is back in the news with some surprising news–he’s engaged AND getting married!
TMZ broke the news earlier and much to our dismay it is all true.
Short tells TMZ in just 5 months, he and new fiance Aida Abramyan are expecting a boy. Columbus says he and Aida have been on and off for years but he just recently popped the question. We’re told the two plan on getting married some time before January before the baby is born.
As for a name for their kid … Short says they’ve got one picked out … but they’re gonna keep it under wraps.
This all a little bizarre if you ask us. Did he and his ex even officially divorce? Just five months ago he and Karrine were going through a very nasty and public spat and now he is ready to remarry? Aida will be wife number three might we add. It looks like he is trying to compete with Terrence Howard for the most number of botched marriages! We do wish them the best, but we would like to see Columbus get it together even more. He was an amazingly talented and respected actor and well respected. Columbus, if you are reading this, we are still routing for you. Get to rehab and then to Iyanla Vanzant to fix your life!
