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.
Although she faced some bumps in the road with a few cancelled shows and a bout with the flu and laryngitis, it seems, Rihanna’s “Diamonds World Tour” is still the hottest concert out right now. Not only has her fans but her celebrity friends continue to flock to her shows and show their support. The singer got a visit from rapper Lil’ Kim on her Newark Jersey tour stop over the weekend.
The rapper posted the above photo adding, “Me and my wifey @badgalriri @rihanna !!!!!! !!!! I’m in love!!!”
Lil’ Kim was spotted on the red carpet arrival of WE tv’s party celebrating the season 3 premiere of “Braxton Family Values.” The event took place Wednesday night at STK in New York City.
Kim’s sighting comes just days after her Twitter rant against television host Wendy Williams, blasting her for poking fun of a recently altered photo where Kim seemed to have had more plastic surgery done to her face. However, the sighting was not flattering. Unfortunately Kim had a fashion fail moment.
Lil Kim should just hire a new stylist. Does she dress herself or does she really pay someone to come up with this look? If so, they should get fired.
Recently Lil Kim got some backlash on recent photos of what seemed to be of a more altered facial features. Although Kim’s dispute the claims and says the photos were altered and the media is picking on her Wendy Williams couldn’t help but give her own input on the matter. During an episode of her show where she shares her hot topics with her audience Wendy says “it [her face] looks so tight now it looks like it’ll just pop you.” Here’s more of what Wendy had to say and Lil’ Kim’s Twitter rant. Kim makes some shocking allegations.
Well what do we have here. Just when you think this old beef was put to bed Faith Evans and Lil’ Kim aren’t quite over the past. During her interview with the Wendy Show Faith dishes on walking in on Lil’ Kim in bed with the late Notorious B.I.G while they were married.
Although she wouldn’t go into details Faith says all the full details are in a book she wrote a while back. But we can already confirm she stated in her book that she basically beat Lil’ Kim down. She also reveals a couple years back she ran into Kim, having out their differences long behind her, a tried to congratulate Kim on her ‘Dancing With The Stars’, success at the time, Kim brushed her off and acted as if she didn’t know who Faith was.
Really Kim? That’s just tacky and childish.
Faith also talks about her children and the little things Biggie Jr. does to remind her of his late father. Check out the interview below.
Will this Lil’ Kim vs. Nicki Minaj feud ever stop? We guess not.
As you all should know by now, Nicki cancelled her HOT 97 Summerjam performance Sunday night after the station’s DJ Peter Rosenburg said some not so nice things about her not being a real Hip Hop artist and a sell out.
Prior to the drama it was also rumored Nicki would team up with one of Lil’ Kim’s longtime rivals Foxy Brown. It didn’t take long for Kim to get wind of the news that the two were joining forces against her.
When a fan tweeted the message, “I heard the fake Kim suppose to bring out a fake Kim at summer Jam today. Along with the deaf bitch. Hahaha! Good luck”. Kim was quick to retweet it.
She then retweeted another fan, “that bitch wanna be @lilkim so bad its disgustin’. @lilkim been doin’ a female movement on her tour. She only doin’ it to be kim.”
Will Smith was over in Moscow promoting his ‘Men In Black 3′ movie when a reporter tried to kiss him on the mouth. No seriously! The already awkward moment turned even weirdo when Smith, typical very friendly, smacked him across the face. Check it out.
Even while disrespected Smith handled the situation quite well. Like he said, “He’s lucky I didn’t sucka punch him.”
Well isn’t this a pleasant surprise. Lil’ Kim took a break from beefing with Nicki Minaj long enough to unite to an all star roundup of female emcees. She brought out rappers Eve and Missy Elliot during her ‘Return of the Queen’ Bronx, NY concert at The Paradise Theater.
Lil Kim is back with a new single, “Countin’ Money’. The song is actually featured on the I.R.S. South ‘Tax Season’ mixtape and it’s gotten some pretty good review, showcasing Kim as a the emcee we’ve always known she could be.
Kim is also preparing to go on tour appropriately titled, ‘Return of the Queen’, set to be hosted at Emo’s in Austin, Texas, May 11th. And, we should also expect an album sometime later this year. Seems like Kim has put petty disputes aside and is back to being about her business. Check out, “Countin’ Money” and provide your feedback.
We honor vintage Lil’ Kim today in the wake of her comeback, on the horizon, and to show fans and foes just why Kim was once the hottest female emcee in the game. No doubt when “No Time” made it’s debut, Kim was at the beginning of her rise and the success of the song suddenly made her one of the hottest commodities in Hip Hop.
It was 1996 when the single made it’s debut as well as Kim’s debut single off her first album, ‘Hardcore.’ It went on to peak at number 18 on the Billboard Hot 100 and reached the Top 10 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs. It also topped the US Rap Songs becoming Kim’s first number 1 hit on that chart. Here’s “No Time”.
You know this is a throwback because it was back when Diddy was still going as Puff Daddy before Puffy, before P. Diddy. Can’t believe it’s been nearly sixteen years!
Lil’ Kim visited the set of 106 & Park on the 15th anniversary of the late Notorious B.I.G’s passing. She talked her fondest moments about BIG, new music, new projects in the works, avoided the Nicki questions but it was something that happened behind the scenes that’s got everyone talking. The clip was actually edited out but things got a little tense when Rocsi asked Kim if she missed her old 1995 face, according to reports from attendees. You know, her face pre all the plastic surgery.
I wonder what in the world would make Rocsi asked that question. Here’s what Kim tweeted following the interview.
“I want to take this time 2 say #TeamLilKim & all my fans that came out 2 106. I fucking love u guys. Y’all really turnt it up & represented. Even when Rocsi tried to get disrespectful towards the end & ask an unappropriate irrelevant question..”
Wait….is “unappropriate” a word? Anyone?….I’ll wait.
Lil Kim stopped by MTV’s Rap Fix Wednesday afternoon to talk new music and going in a different direction this time around. She says, “Creatively, as an artist, I think I’m in my Kanye West mode; you do whatever you wanna do and don’t give a ish what nobody got to say about it. It’s all about taking chances,”
She also played new single “If You Love Me” which she says was inspired by a real life story but wouldn’t address who the record was about. However, it’s alleged rapper Maino could be who she’s talking about and possibly addressing his own record titled.
“It’s a true story. Somebody had allegedly made a record to me….there is a lot in my life, in my personal life, as far as dealing in relationships, that people don’t know,” she continued. Make sure to check out the full interview above.
