On January 14, 2016, Karrine confessed her love for Columbus Short and confirmed that they were legally married

She posted a quote with the hashtag #MeetTheShorts:

 “I want you. And not just for today or tomorrow. I want you for the rest of my life, and even that seems a little too short.”

Moreover, she posted an image of Short with this caption:

 “He is I and I am him, slim with the tilted brim…” ? See, that’s the thing about underdogs…those that overstand don’t stay under too long. Then, when you put two battle-tested soldiers together, and when these two touch and agree, no man can stop them. No woman, either. This man is my #MCM, my #MCE, and so much more. @officialcshort #MeetTheShorts.”

However, Karrine started having problems in her marriage shortly after they revealed their relationship.

On March 29, 2016, Karrine 'Superhead' Steffans claimed that her husband Columbus Short had been unfaithful in their marriage. She posted a photo of Short's clothes strewn about the lobby of a building. She wrote:

“Somebody come get @officialshort cheating ass and all his s–t. “What about you @aida006… still want him? And @candicernb… you f—ed my husband… want him?”

Karrine even called out the names of the women her husband cheated with. But none of them responded to anything regarding this. 

After getting kicked from the house for allegedly cheating on his wife, Karrine, actor Columbus Short dropped another bomb. In a radio interview, he revealed that he and the former video vixen, Steffans, were never legally married

Short's revelation comes after months of speculation that their marriage was a sham, and rumors indicated that the former "Scandal" star was still legally married to his former wife, Tanee McCall.
