Lil Kim


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, Royal Reign

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

Kim and Mr. Papers first dated in 2012 but subsequently parted ways later that year before reuniting and bringing their daughter on the scene. Following the birth of their daughter, the celebrity couple remained doting in the eyes of the public but little did we know there was trouble in paradise behind the scene. Barely a year after the birth of Royal, Kim and Mr. Pampers engaged in a dirty legal battle over custody of the child that unites them amidst accusations of infidelity and domestic violence.

Lil Kim opened up in a tweet that has long been deleted about her problems with Mr. Papers. she revealed that Papers has a lot of personal issues that need to be worked. She further claimed that beat her up while they were together. In response, Paper’s stated that Kim blocked him from seeing their daughter and he has no option than to approach the courts. His publicists – Tasha Hilton – further clarified that Mr. Papers is not trying to take custody of baby Royal, but instead, only wants the court to grant him a one day per week visitation right to parent his daughter even if it means with a court-approved monitor present. Hilton also stated categorically that things never got physical between the celebrity couple while they were together.

While this was ongoing, Lil Kim enraged Papers the more by uploading a picture on Twitter of their daughter with ace boxer Floyd Mayweather with a love emoji. In response, an enraged Papers uploaded a freestyle rap video on Instagram and poured out his heart on how he felt about his problems with the emcee.

However, a few years later, the couple seems to have grown to understand each other better and are now raising their daughter as one family. Back in 2016, Papers in a heartfelt Instagram post wished Kim a happy mother’s day even though they weren’t together. as of the time.

Possibly since then, the couple might have been working hard to mend their broken relationship. Apparently, this worked as they were seen together in a photo uploaded by Papers on Instagram celebrating their daughter’s birthday.

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.

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.
