Lil' Kim has been getting plenty of attention for her musical response to the Beyoncé/Nicki Minaj remix of "Flawless" because of her diss to Minaj. Of course, the Lil' Kim/Nicki Minaj feud has been going on for years, and is pretty much old news by now, new song or not. What's not so well documented is Lil' Kim's personal life. Apparently, she's been with New York-based rapper Mr. Papers for quite some time now, so why don't we know more about him? Maybe he should take a page from Lil' Kim's book and start an on-going diss-match with a well-known rapper.
First thing's first, Mr. Papers is the father of the Queen Bee's appropriately named daughter, Royal Reign. Lil' Kim was initially pretty secretive about the pregnancy. She waited until she was a couple months pregnant to even announce that she was expecting. And even after her confirmation at fashion week, she declined to name the father. Mr. Papers apparently didn't get the memo though because he outed himself as the father via Instagram with the post below.
He also retweeted news outlets reporting Lil' Kim's pregnancy and congratulations aimed at her. Subtle. But you know what they say: the couple who misunderstands each other's privacy wishes together, stays together.
But their daughter, whom Lil' Kim gave birth to in June, isn't his only child. He also has a 4-year-old son from a previous relationship. For those in need of their daily dose of "Awww," I direct you to Mr. Papers' Instagram feed, where he's catalogued plenty of pictures of "Lil Papers." (More like Lil Dapper, amiright?)
It looks like Papers' love for Lil Kim is pretty permanent — He got the phrase "I love Kimberly Jones" (the rapper's real name) tattooed on his arm. What he lacks in creativity he makes for in romantic sentiment, right? (Speaking of names, Mr. Papers real name is extraordinarily hard to find. I guess in some ways, he has that privacy thing figured out.)
Papers and Kim have actually been together for quite awhile. They were first reported to be together back in 2012, although they did briefly break up later that year. They appear to be on pretty solid footing now though. They collaborated on a remix of the Rihanna's "Pour It Up" and even appeared in the music video together. I'll let Lil Kim and Mr. Papers play you out.
