Columbus Short Alleges That He And The Cast & Crew Of 'True To The Game' Have Yet To Be Paid For The Film

Dame Dash isn’t the only one that has claimed this week that they’re owed money!

Columbus Short alleges he and the cast and crew of the 2017 film True to the Game were never paid for the film and received “zero dollars.”

The film also starred Vivica A. Fox, Nafessa Williams, Malcolm D. Kelly, Draya and the late Nelsan Ellis. It was directed by Preston A. Whitmore II and produced by Manny Halley.

Short posted the following on Instagram:

Based on the book of the same name, True to the Game chronicles the love story of a charismatic drug lord, Quadir (Columbus Short) and Gena, a young woman from the projects of Philadelphia. Set in the 1980s in Harlem, New York, this exciting story comes to life as it shows their journey of love while navigating the nuances of the drug game and their movement toward positivity when tragedy strikes.

An indie release through Imani Films, after its theatrical run, it was recently picked up by BET and has aired numerous times this year.
