Tanee claims the 31-year-old left her fearing for the safety of their two-year-old daughter after he broke the door of it’s hinges, ripped bed sheets and left lights on.
Wow… this dude just doesn’t seem to care!
He said in a statement on Friday:
‘At this time, I must confirm my exit from a show I’ve called home for three years, with what is the most talented ensemble on television today. I would like to first thank Shonda Rhimes for the opportunity to work with such an amazing cast.’
The announcement of his exit from the series comes amid two pending criminal cases, one accusing him of misdemeanor spousal battery and another accusing him of felony battery that seriously injured a man during an altercation at a West Hollywood restaurant in March.If convicted, Short faces up to four years in state prison.
