Actor Columbus Short is said to be on the run from the law. The 31-year-old former ‘Scandal’ star has a warrant out for his arrest for allegedly sucker punching a man in a L.A. bar in March. Short decided it was not in his best interests to turn himself in. So he went on the lam.
Well, you Columbus fans will be happy to know that he is safe with friends in Atlanta, where he can’t be touched by the long arms of the LAPD. According to an insider, Short, 31, has been in Atlanta all week partying with actor Jackie Long and an artist named Kris Kelli.
Short showed up at Kris Kelli’s listening party at the Artist Den last night. Apparently Kris is an up-and-coming artist in the same category as K. Michelle and Karlie Redd — meaning she is more looks than substance.
Kris seems to be well-connected in the Atlanta music industry, which means she’ll get about as far as K. Michelle and Karlie in the business. Whether that’s good or bad remains to be seen.
