Lil Kim is an American rapper, songwriter, record producer, model, and actress. Kimberly Denise Jones was born in Brooklyn, New York where she also grew up. After her parents separated, Kim lived with her father who eventually threw her out. She resorted to living with her friends and sometimes on the streets.

A high-school drop out struggling to get by, she met rapper NOTORIOUS B.I.G who introduced her to his Brooklyn based group Junior M.A.F.I.A. Lil Kim was only 19. The group released their debut and only album “Conspiracy” in 1995. It debuted at #8 on the Billboard charts and was also successful in the market.

Breakthrough And Successful Album Sale

The next year, Lil Kim went solo. After featuring in a number of R&B albums, she released her debut solo album “Hard Core” in 1996. The album which was certified double platinum debuted at #11 on the Billboard 200, #3 on R&B albums and sold 2.4 million copies domestically and 4.5 million copies worldwide. A hit from the album was “No Time” a duet with rapper turned businessman Diddy.

Her sophomore album “Notorious K.I.M.” was released in 2000, it was certified platinum and debuted at #4 on Billboard 200. It was also very successful commercially. Between the 4 year gap before the release of the second album, Lil Kim went on tour including Diddy’s “No Way Out” tour which is one of the highest-grossing hip-hop tours of all time.

She was also active in modelling for brands like Versace, Baby Phat, Candice, and Iceberg. Her Queen Bee entertainment label was also launched during this period.

Continued Music Success

Lil Kim was featured in the remake of “Lady Marmalade” for the soundtrack of 2001 movie Moulin Rouge. The single became a top hit and stayed atop the Billboard Hot 100 for more than a month. It also brought Lil Kim her first Grammy Award.

Lil Kim’s subsequent albums have all been successful both on the charts and in the market including the fourth studio album “The Naked Truth” which she released while doing time in a Federal prison following a conspiracy. She has so far sold 12 million albums globally. She has worked and shared the stage with artists such as DMX, Beyonce, Rick Ross, Ludacris, and T. Pain.

In addition to the Grammy, she has won 2 Billboard Music Awards, 3 MTV VMAs, and 2 Soul Train Awards.

TV Shows, and Movies

Lil Kim has been featured in a handful of movies as well as a number of TV shows. In 2006, her “Lil Kim: Countdown to Lockdown” premiered on BET and was the highest rated premiere in the history of BET, with an average of 1.9 million views. The show followed her last 14 days before she began her time in the Federal prison. Others include Dancing With The Stars (2008) where she came 5th place, and Pregnant in Heels.

Some of Kim’s endorsement deals include Ciroc vodka and Three Olives vodka. She owns Salon Se Swa with her cousin, two clothing lines- Hollyhood and 24/7 Goddess Collection.

Her net worth is estimated at $18 million.

Woes

Kimberly Denise Jones has had her fair share of run-ins with the law. She served a prison sentence for one year in 2005 after she lied to a jury about her friend’s involvement in a shooting 4 years earlier. Lil Kim had received a restriction banning her from releasing new material as a result of her settlement with Trackmasters. This led to the delay of her fifth album.

In 2014, Samantha Ravndahl filed a lawsuit against Kim for using her image in the ‘Dead Gal Walking’ single artwork. She demanded $150,000 in damages plus legal fees.

These are just a few of her problems with the law. Regardless of all the troubles, Lil Kim has managed to keep her wealth afloat.

What You Should Know About Lil Kim’s Daughter

The rapper has a beautiful daughter named Royal Reign, fathered by her then-boyfriend, Mr. Pappers. The child was born on June 9, 2014, at the Hackensack University Medical Center in New Jersey, weighing six pounds, five ounces.

Kim’s pregnancy became public knowledge in February 2014 when she attended The Blonds Fashion Week MAC event in New York showing off an unmistakable baby bump. She had a lavish baby shower held in New York, in mid-May same year, with her baby daddy by her side.

Kim and Mr. Papers first dated in 2012 but subsequently parted ways later that year before reuniting and bringing their daughter on the scene.

Did Lil Kim Have Plastic Surgery?

Most celebrities have gone off-limits when it comes to having that ‘perfect’ look through plastic surgery. Over the past twenty years, Lil Kim has had so much cosmetic work done to her face at different times and each time, the result appears to be more shocking than the previous one.

Having gone under the knife for an obvious nose job and a facelift and using skin-lightening creams in addition to other appearance adjustments, she currently looks almost nothing like she did in her early days.

In April 2016, the rapper got a lot of her black fans horrified after she posted pictures of herself on her Instagram account looking like a ‘white stranger’ who made her way to the celebrity’s IG page by mistake. Her once black-girl-brown complexion was light, her hair was longer, straighter, and blonder while her nose, which was once round, became thin and more feminine. Even her eyes looked elongated and entirely different.

Describing the rapper’s unending facial surgeries as an addiction, celebrity plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Breslow told Page Six that she may need help if not, she might end up destroying her face.

Judging by the pictures, the doctor believes Kim has possibly spent $20,000 to $25,000 on cosmetic procedures including cheek and chin implants, rhinoplasty, lip augmentation and skin bleaching. He explained that skin lightening is generally achieved with lightening peels or creams and lotions that contain lightening agents which could be harmful as it can thin the skin and cause damage.

Amidst the many rumors of plastic surgery, however, Lil Kim only admits to getting at least two nose jobs. Speaking in an interview with former Hot 97 DJ Angie Martinez in 2005, she disclosed that the reason was that her ex-boyfriend broke her nose.

Details of Her Age, Height, and Body Measurements

This talented entertainer was born on July 11, 1974. She is not too tall as she measures 4 feet 11 inches (149 cm) in height. Lil Kim also weighs 55 kg (121 lbs), just about the right weight for her height! She has black hair, dark brown eyes and wears bra size 36B. Her body measurement is 36-26-34.
