Talk About Scandal! Columbus Short Serves Only A MONTH Of His 1-Year Domestic Abuse Sentence!

WTF???

Why is it crimes against women always seem to yield shorter prison sentences..?

TMZ reported Tuesday morning that Columbus Short, formerly of TV’s Scandal, is already out of jail after serving just 34 days!

As you may recall the actor was recently sentenced to a year in jail and 36 months of probation for domestic violence charges after being pleading no contest to hitting his wife, Aida Abramyan.

Apparently he was let out early because of jail overcrowding. Ugh. Great message, L.A. County.

Rihanna Shames Snapchat For Joking About Domestic Violence With That Messy Chris Brown Ad: ‘I Know You Ain’t That Dumb!’

Oh snap.

Rihanna just gave Snapchat a textual beatdown over the “mess” of an ad the app ran asking users if they would “rather slap Rihanna or punch Chris Brown.”

The songstress took to rival social app Instagram to shame Snap for putting time and resources “to animate something that would intentionally bring shame to [domestic violence] victims and made a joke of it!!!”

RiRi made sure to note her response was not about her “personal feelings,” but for “all the women, children, and men that have been victims of DV.”

She also called bullshit on the company playing dumb in its apology, which was issued after many users expressed outrage over the insensitive ad for the app’s new game Would You Rather.

Read Rihanna’s full statement (below).

“Now SNAPCHAT I know you already know you ain’t my fav app out there! But I’m just trying to figure out what the point was with this mess! I’d love to call it ignorance, but I know you ain’t that dumb! You spent money to animate something that would intentionally bring shame to [domestic violence] victims and made a joke of it!!! This isn’t about my personal feelings, cause I don’t have much of them…but all the women, children, and men that have been victims of DV in the past and especially the ones who haven’t made it out yet…you let us know! Shame on you. Throw the whole app-ology away.”

We’d rather not fuck with an app that exploits domestic violence to promote a dumb game.

Is Snapchat’s collapse on the horizon? Can Kylie Jenner dub this app canceled already?

Nick Gordon, Bobbi Kristina Brown’s Former Boyfriend, Arrested for Domestic Violence

Nick Gordon, the late Bobbi Kristina Brown‘s former boyfriend, was arrested for domestic violence in Florida on Saturday, March 10, The Blast is reporting.

The Seminole County Sheriff’s website states that Gordon, 29, was charged with battery and given a bond of $ 500. He is due to appear in court on April 6.

This is not Gordon’s arrest for domestic violence. In June 2017, he was taken into police custody after his girlfriend called authorities to say that she had been battered and that he wouldn’t let her leave the residence. He was charged with domestic violence and false imprisonment but his lawyer told Us Weekly in December that all of the charges were later dismissed and the couple were living together after Gordon moved out of his mom’s house. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that the case was closed after Gordon completed an anger management class.

As previously reported, a judge found Gordon “legally responsible” for Bobbi Kristina’s death in a $ 50 million civil lawsuit filed by her conservator. The suit alleged that the daughter of the late Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown “died due to a violent altercation with [Gordon] after which he placed her in a bathtub, unconscious, after he injected her with a toxic mixture.”

Gordon, who was ordered to pay more than $ 36 million, has denied these claims and any involvement in her death. He has yet to be charged criminally.

Bobbi Kristina died in July 2015 at the age of 22, six months after being placed in a medically induced coma after being found unresponsive in a bathtub of her Atlanta home.

Naya Rivera Charged with Domestic Battery of Ryan Dorsey

We all know that Mark Salling faces prison time, but he's not the only Glee star in trouble with the law.

Naya Rivera has been charged with domestic battery against her husband, Ryan Dorsey.

And the alleged incident occurred in the presence of the couple's child.

Naya rivera charged with domestic battery

Almost two months ago, we told you to pop your "congratulations on your divorce!" balloons and to go ahead and eat your celebratory divorce cake, if you'd had them ready.

Because Naya Rivera and Ryan Dorsey had called off their divorce.

Naya and Ryan have a young son, Josey Hollis Dorsey. 

The couple had been in the process of disentangling after two years of marriage, but sometimes, couples work things out.

Sometimes, partners try to work through their differences for their child's sake.

However, sometimes trying to make things work — for yourselves or for a child or both — end up just making things worse.

And, well, it looks like things have gotten much worse.

Local news station WSAZ-TV reports that Naya Rivera has been charged with domestic battery after an alleged assault against husband Ryan Dorsey.

She was arrested at home on Saturday evening, at around 9:30pm in Kanawha County, West Virginia.

Ryan Dorsey told deputies that Naya had struck him in the head and lip while the couple was taking their son, Josey, on a walk down the street.

Domestic violence is always a serious situation folks, but this allegation is that it took place in front of their child. That is much worse.

And though we don't know the circumstances that led to this, it's reported that Dorsey presented cell phone video to the police that featured Naya's battery against him.

Naya Rivera was charged after midnight (so, technically, on Sunday morning).

Her bond was set at $ 1000 at first, but upon review of the evidence and a review of her criminal history, Naya was released on PR bond — personal recognizance. 

Reportedly, it was her father-in-law, of all people, who picked her up afterwards.

We cannot imagine what sort of conversation they must have had on that car ride.

And we still have no knowledge of what brought about this incident of alleged domestic battery.

But domestic violence is very serious. Unless Naya was somehow defending herself or someone else, which no one has suggested so far, we can't imagine any sort of justification.

And, again, this was reportedly in the presence of their young child.

Witnessing a domestic assault can be traumatic for children.

This news comes as a crushing disappointment, and not just for fans of Naya Rivera's acting roles.

In the past, Naya Rivera revealed that she'd had an abortion and she also detailed her eating disorder. That took a lot of bravery.

A lot of people liked that she was willing to share those parts of her story with the world.

But there's nothing inspirational or educational about an accusation of domestic battery.

Naya's hardly the first celebrity to disappoint us this month, but it's never good to learn that someone — famous or otherwise — isn't who you thought they were.

Ryan Phillippe Drops Official Legal Response To Domestic Violence Claims, Says Ex Just Wants Money And ‘Publicity’

UPDATE 9:10 P.M. EST: Ryan wants everyone to know he wouldn’t even call Elsie his ex-girlfriend. He tweeted the following late Wednesday afternoon:

Ryan Phillippe has already vehemently denied the claims by Elsie Hewitt that he assaulted her, throwing her down the stairs of his home.

But now he’s done so on the record.

In legal documents obtained by TMZ, Phillippe says he only ever treated Hewitt with “kindness and respect” and never physically harmed her in any way — and that he’s considering further legal action but thus far is not countersuing for defamation.

The Shooter star’s legal response says it was only after the model broke into his home “completely intoxicated” that she “commenced her scheme by making a false report to the police, wrongfully accusing [him] of injuring her.”

He says Hewitt, who is seeking $ 1 million in damages, “fabricated a story in an unjustified attempt to extort money from Phillippe and gain publicity for herself and her modeling career.”

Sadly, it all sounds disturbingly like what most Internet commenters say about women’s claims of abuse.

Phillippe makes a point of saying how devastated he was by the accusation, noting that he “was raised by women in a household where women’s rights, feminism, and advocacy were very much at the forefront, and he is sickened to be falsely accused of domestic violence.”

What do YOU think of his defense??
