Lil Kim has just been sued by a former business manager who says a botched deal cost him $15 million!
Whew, that’s a lot of pennies.
According to TMZ, “Andrew Ro says his company, International Rock Star Corp, inked a licensing deal with Kim back in August 2012 and planned to roll out a slew of products, including a perfume line, clothing line, vodka drink, energy drink, Steve Madden shoe line and even a honey maker.”
What’s the issue? Ro says Kim flaked on a number of projects they initially agreed on, failed to show up to meetings, insisted she be paid for her time and was difficult to work with.
Ro also alleges that when a project had been executed Kim failed to properly promote the product and essentially stopped returning his calls.
Not long after, Ro says the rapper issued a cease and desist letter for any future projects and filed a lawsuit against his company for tricking her into a bad licensing deal.
In his lawsuit, Ro claims, she has since cost his company $15 million.
Lil’ Kim has yet to respond to the counter claim. We’ll keep you posted.
