Steffans quickly took to Instagram to deny Short's claims that they never married, posting an image of their marriage license filed in the state of California.
#Affected#Carry On." Steffans responded, "@officialcshort In front of the world, with all that I am, I love you.
Steffans, who rose to fame as a video vixen turned author, revealed her wrath on Instagram after claiming to have caught Short cheating on Monday night before proceeding to air the couple's dirty laundry online. I love Karin [sic] and her brilliantly talented son. I've been working hard to bring you guys quality moves, music and art. Steffans claimed she had legally married Short on social media in January, which sparked controversy as his divorce from Tanee Mc Call had allegedly not been finalized at the time the nuptials took place, according to Hollywood Life.
One picture shows Short sitting solemnly in a chair while his clothes have been strewn all over the floor of what appears to be the lobby of an undisclosed building. But he was axed from the Shonda Rhimes series after he was charged in two criminal cases, one for spousal battery and another of felony assault after he seriously injured a man during an altercation at a West Hollywood restaurant.

His latest scandal led to 'Columbus Short' trending on Twitter with many users lampooning the actor's resolve to remain calm as well as commenting on the former actor’s legal troubles which led to his firing from the hit show.
