Lil’ Kim Reveals She’s Pregnant At New York Fashion Week, Like, Reallllly Pregnant
In news no one saw coming (primarily because why would you) Lil' Kim is pregnant. Kim revealed her pregnancy Wednesday night at The Blonds fashion show which was part of New York Fashion Week. Kim took the stage at the after party for the show, according to Us Weekly, and told the crowd, "I'm a mom, but I can turn it up a little!" Kim — who is already several months along — also spoke about late rapper Biggie Smalls who started Kim's rap career and with whom she was in a relationship in the mid-90s, "It's also going to be Biggie's birthday and the anniversary of his death soon so we [as she points to her belly] love you." Kim then performed her 2005 single "Lighters Up." Kim did not give any information regarding the father of the baby. This will be Kim's first child.
Lil' Kim has been in the news most recently for a lawsuit filed by makeup artist Samantha Ravndahl who is suing Kim for stealing one of her photographs for use in promoting a song from her upcoming mixtape. Kim said in an interview with XXL in November 2013, “I don’t know what the heck is going on. If there were something going on, my team would know better than I would. You have to get that from my team because I really don’t know what’s going on.”
As for that mixtape, Kim shared the track list on Instagram back in December revealing that songs feature Jadakiss, French Montana, and Miley Cyrus. With a lawsuit pending and now a new baby on the way, it's no surprise that Kim's mixtape is taking a little longer than originally planned but it sounds like she's still working hard. As Kim said herself, "I'm still going to be hardcore. The baby has made me even more of a beast!"
