In yet another hand to forehead inducing story, Lil’ Kim has filed a $1 million lawsuit against a lawyer and business she alleges of tricking her into signing a series of bad licensing agreements. From the sounds of it, it’s a nasty okey doke. Poor thing, say a prayer.
The New York Daily News reports:
The 38-year-old former rapper says Sunny Barkats bamboozled her into entering transactions that gave himself and his partner, Andrew Ro, a 44% stake in a corporation formed to license her brand names. Lil’ Kim claims that she eventually wised up to the shady deals in December 2012, but Barkats refused to rescind them.
Meanwhile, in response to distorted photos of Lil’ Kim (as if the surgeon hadn’t done enough), a rep released a statement:
“We would like to inform fans, the media, and the general public that this is nothing more than the blog site doing its best to conjure up much needed publicity and what better way to do so, than to take an American music icon and create a fictitious platform in which to disrespect and [humiliate]. We at Team Lil Kim are not taking this lying down and are taking this matter very seriously.”
My snark aside, while I wish Kim would take on what she’s done to her face in maybe some cautionary tale to others, I hate that people go out of their way to make her lost worse. It’s unnecessary. Leave her be.
