Exclusive: Could Columbus Short’s ‘Scandal’ Job Be In Jeopardy?



Columbus Short was spotted on the set of Scandal on Tuesday afternoon looking happier than ever. Generally this wouldn’t be a big deal, but this is the first time the actor has been spotted on set since news surfaced that Short was involved in a bloody bar fight on March 15.

A source close to production tells HipHollywood exclusively that the show’s creator, Shonda Rhimes doesn’t “tolerate negative press” and that she “issued him a warning to get his personal issues sorted out.” We are told that if the actor “continues with his violent behavior,” he could get the ax from the show.


Columbus Short gets back to work on the set of 'Scandal', after being seen for the first time since news broke of a bloody bar fight the star was involved in on March 15th

HipHollywood previously reported that the 31-year-old, Kansas City native is being investigated after getting into a bar fight while at Gabe’s Bar and Grill in L.A. According to reports, a man told Short: “You might be richer than me but I get my girls to buy me everything I want including your wife.”

That’s when the former choreographer punched the victim in the face, reportedly breaking the man’s nose. A source tells TMZ that the victim became unconscious for several minutes before eventually being rushed to the hospital. Columbus allegedly left the bar immediately after the fight.

This isn’t the first time the Scandal star has gotten into hot water over solving problems with violence. Back in 2010, Columbus sucker punched victim, Jason Hill after getting into an argument while playing basketball at a Los Angeles fitness gym. Sources tell us that Short recently paid Hill and settled the case.


Michael Rapaport Calls Himself The “MVP Of Talking Trash” Following Janet Jackson Controversy



Michael Rapaport came under fire earlier this month for slamming Janet Jackson Appreciation Day which was on Super Bowl Sunday. But now, he is speaking a slightly different tune.

On February 4th, as Janet fans used social media to praise the singer, Michael took to Twitter to do what he does best: Talk mess.

“Can anybody crying for Janet Jackson right now tell me the last Janet Jackson song that was popping,” he wrote. “Motherf*cka’s wanna make nothing something 24/7/365 & Super Bowl Sunday.”

Michael, however, is slightly backing down from his aggressive words. HipHollywood caught up with the actor during the premier of Shot In The Dark, to discuss not only his ability to talk “sh*t,” but being attacked by Black Twitter.

“I love Janet Jackson, respect Janet Jackson,” he told us exclusively. “The context of what I said is that Janet Jackson isn’t popping now like she was popping in the 80’s, 90’s. Doesn’t mean she’s not an icon.”

Rapaport, who is known to stir up on some drama with his Twitter antics, then added about being a sh*t talker: “I’m proud of the way I talk sh*t, I’m the MVP of talking trash. I can give it as good as I can take it.”
