karrine steffans

Actor and songwriter Columbus Short is thankful to author Karrine Steffans for giving him a home and a sense of stability. As you know, Steffans threw Columbus and his things out after she caught him allegedly cheating with a gospel singer.

Columbus, who has a poor track record with women, took to Twitter.com to thank Steffans for giving him place to stay and for giving him peace of mind. The two reportedly tied the knot a few months ago.

"It ain't the first time I've been homeless. But will definitely be the last!!" Columbus tweeted on Tuesday.

He aded: "How could you not love a woman who took you in a broken place and allow you to heal. I'm thankful for the journey."

Columbus proves that all a man wants is a stable home and a hot plate. What he does outside the home is his business.

Below is the full text of his tweets:

Just want to say....that it's unfortunate that way things end up. I felt truly that a woman gave me a home and a place to get my mind right… And a place to maturate gifts that I wasn't able to foster, without stability. I love Karin and her brilliantly talented son. But toxicity… of any kind isn't healthy for anyone. I've been working hard to bring you guys quality movies, music and art. And that's exactly what will… Continue to happen. How could you not love a woman who took you in a broken place and allow you to heal. I'm thankful for the journey an… most of all UNBROKEN......If I'm still standing you have no excuse! #MoreThanConquerers

    ??? ok mr. short. he married to her but can't spell her name right, tho?

  • Smith Jane

    How is he homeless? Ain't he getting scandal residual checks?

  • Brook York

    Ooh, burn on you Superhead!

  • TheWildChild

    They both are very unstable people and truly belong together! ? Did Karrin tweet this after she copped his passwords? Cause dude looked stoned in that video. ? I bet Karrin keeps life insurance policies on these broken down husband(s) of hers.

  • Low E. {CIRCA 1908}

    IF YOU DON'T KNOW HOW TO MANAGE MONEY, IT'S DEFINITELY POSSIBLE.

  • TheWildChild

    You mean "child support" is getting those Scandal coins ?

  • thehumble1

    ONA: K Michelle let Angela Yee have this morning.

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    His response was so calm...he must have something in (or almost) contract that he doesn't want to mess up like he did those Scandal checks.

  • AnonymousRose

    REALLY

  • Milani

    I seriously miss the days where celebs kept their business to themselves. If they needed to say anything, they did it via their publicist or if it was juicy news, the Arsenio Hall Show ;)

    nowadays stars feel the need to tell us every single detail of their lives, posting pics and writing long ass novels about their revelations on life after going through their "trials and tribulations" and whatnot.

    ...where's the mystery, smh.

  • Afiya

    Columbus, get some balls and take care of yourself, stop begging, you sound desperate. MAN UP!!!!

  • iWasteTime

    As many times as Encore has on stomp the yard and Cadillac Records he goodt!
    I would like to applaud his rational response.

    No Jeezy teef post?

  • therealashland

    If supa head is providing stability to this man, he needs to line up behind katt williams for his medicine/ apple sauce desert.

  • WetPntees

    Why Karrine still wearing that hairstyle that looks like she gathered all her hair in a ponytail, went straight across it with some clippers (Andis), dropped it down, shook it and headed to the altar? Columbus looking like her barber in this pic..

  • Yoni

    Just like a nucca to let a woman take his ass in. Sit him up straight, teach his ass how to chew with his mouth closed and speak in full sentences and then they go off and do some dumb shit.

  • Yoni

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    AND he's assaulted his ex. So he's a cheater and a beater. And it's on record. And she married him anyway...

  • Deno Spencer

    The woman who wrote about sucking dics and getting passed around wants a guy to be faithful. Lol. Sorry I no it's a double standard but we need women to appear a little more innocent if u want faithfulness.

  • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

    ....then they round it off with some mess about they're just tryna get it together for the "fans" :rolleyes:
    niggra, if you don't get off social media and get somewhere and grow-up and try to keep a job when you get one!

  • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

    why Jesus?

  • It’s Taurus Season

    Correct.

  • Sucker Free

    Her real name probably Karen And she changed it to Karrine to sound more glamorous

  • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

    then tried to shade her, talking bout toxicity isn't good :rolleyes: so if she's not supporting you in the midst of your cheating, she's toxic? okay, if that's your logic, work it.... :yawn:

  • THE OLDER SISTAH

    "Columbus proves that all a man wants is a stable home and a hot plate. What he does outside the home is his business."
    Can't agree. If all a man wants is a stable home and some food he should stay with his mama. If he wants a relationship with ONE woman then he should give marriage a shot but he has to be committed to making it work...they both do. The fact that there was cheating involved would be a deal breaker for me BUT I guess I have too much pride because I'd be damned if I would be calling women out on social media for fvkg my soon to be ex husband. My final words to him would be "Go do you boo," I might be hysterical behind closed door but why does everyone have to know?

    Not to be funny but Karrine can't honestly think that she will be taken seriously by a man. Her no no place has seen more Danny DeVito's than Jiffy Lube Express. She need to sit down and so does he, but I loved him in Cadillac Records for some reason.

  • Ajavee

    I agree ?

  • Tammie Reed

    Ive been around him a few times and although he is mad cool, he scares me just a bit. His brain moves very quickly and he has a very low attention span. He kept asking me to listen to his music, which I was not really interested in because I blog about fashion and beauty, stuff lol and a lil bit of celebrity events. I remember him telling me stories about being on Scandal and I blurted out, how could you fluck that up Columbus? He responded by saying he was so glad they fired him, so he could do other projects! I looked blank face and blinked my lashes because if I read correctly, he got paid around $300,000 an episode!

    Geesh, you can walk away from dat? Ok then do you lol! He is a very odd bird but very nice. Hung out with him again here in Atlanta on set of a tv movie for Tv One Directed by Russ Parr a few months ago. Very talented guy indeed but thats how most folks are that are creative, weird creatures.

  • Jamie Jay

    So she took him in and helped him heal and then he starts cheating on her. That is so sad, I dont really care for her but it's wrong that she gave her all and he ups and cheats on her. Trifling men aint ish.

  • LeBrick James

    I dont know what Columbus Short was thinking.

    Thinking that Karrine Steffans is wife material is like thinking you'll find a gourmet meal at McDonalds.

  • LeBrick James

    Well said. They're both damaged people.

    Two damaged people entering a relationship/marriage? Usually doesnt work. Plain and simple.

  • LeBrick James

    Indeed. His bank account must be just crying right now.

  • LeBrick James

    She has a son who'a about 12 now. You can just imagine the stuff he's heard. You know kids in school can be vicious.

  • LeBrick James

    Some women will marry a serial killer if he's got money.

  • LeBrick James

    ... maybe because some women are really good at hiding the crazy till you get deep into a relationship with them, or till they get that ring on their finger.

  • Deno Spencer

    No Lorenzo your suppose to me on my side. Rofl. Lol. I asked the older men in my family a couple years ago if all men cheated occasionally and the answer was no not if your really in love with your wife. At the moment I realized I never had been in love as I made the mistake of cheating a few times (I'm divorced now)

  • Crazy tee

    No...he just wasn't with her long enough to know how the correct spelling should be....that's when you can tell when things are moving to fast and not taking seriously

    even sex from the self proclaimed Video Vixen, who is infamous for her oral skills could not keep him at home.
    when you are a rotten broken man.
    go somewhere and get healed before you jump into anything.

  • Traci404

    it starts with loving yourself.
    loving your soul, loving your character, loving you.
    this does not include sex, how you perform in bed.
    loving and respecting who you are, and your role in a committed relationship that you value and dont want to lose.

    he doesnt love himself

  • Traci404

    I have ZERO sympathy for either one of these folks.
    He was given the opportunity of a life time, that many black men in Hollywood don't get;. a job on a hit show. he messed it up.

    Her: after decades of sleeping with other womens' husbands
    Karma gave her a taste of what it feels like to be the wife and you discover this betrayal by your husband. it's PAINFUL

  • T3

    How could you not love a woman who took you in a broken place and allow you to heal.

    How can you love a woman and not know how to spell her name?!?!??

    Yes. I did not love myself nor respect the gift of love. I no better now That was beautiful what you wrote

  • jussaying

    to be fair, it's not just stars - it's people in general. social media is the worst; you have people continuously providing updates on their life, sharing personal pics, sending their snapdragons snapping and their komodo dragons through text.. it's too much.

  • Monday

    He sounds like a narcissist.

    Thankful but not really...the shades in here..

    He is suppose to be married with her and he act like he was just a charity case.

    That's the most discusting shade a man can tweet. My ex did something similar.... If he's not a narcissist, he must be a borderline...

    Don't thank a woman after you broke her heart and wallet...smdh I won't support him anymore

  • LeBrick James

    I have to side-eye any man that thinks that he's gonna marry an ex-hoe, ex-pornstar, ex stripper, etc... and she's gonna turn into sweet little Holly Homemaker after he puts a ring on her finger.
    Sorry, but a hoe will always be a hoe, and trash will always be trash. It's a shame these dudes dont realize that.

  • KB

    PREACH!!!

  • Guess Who

    VERY TRUE ...but he's the one that was cheating and he's also a hoe and a woman beater. I say they should stay married. BOTH OF THEM ARE SEVERELY FLAWED. Why break up and get with someone who's a good catch and fuk up their life? Nah, those two dysfunctional mufukas need to STAY together.

    Is this nugga smoking rocks?

    Ummmmm...I hope he stays single for a (LONG) while and gets himself together. So sad to see how far he's fallen.

I pray that she comes to a good place in her life. these chicks who thinks sex is a way to control men find that it isn't a game. i read her book, and that is a crazy way to try and live
