SHARE More bad news for Columbus Short: Actor booted by landlord

Troubled actor Columbus Short has now been forced to move, due to slow payment of rent.

Not only has Columbus Short’s personal life and career been spiraling downward, since allegations of domestic abuse — and his bar-brawling — led to him being axed from his job on the hit show “Scandal,” but now he’s been evicted by his landlord.

Since his wife left him, TMZ reported Short had been renting a place in Los Angeles’ San Fernando Valley. It wasn’t exactly cheap digs: The rent ran nearly $7,000 per month. However, the landlord — who seemingly was looking for a way to kick Short out — got a court order to evict the actor, after he fell one month behind in paying the rent.

However, Short didn’t have to suffer the indignity of having his possessions dumped on the street. He exited quietly before the 5-day grace period of the eviction notice was up.
